When the shoe factory whistle
blows young men and women in em
ployment often havea stock complaint
to make, that is, their employers
seem to regard them as so much

the absence of cordiality on the pan
ot their principal, and envy the re

favors of any one and then you arc
not in debt and are not expected to
