W. D. Gift was elected auditor. ( has. C. Verger and his brother, Samuel, of near New Berlin, were at the county seat Thursday. The former is selling his farm stock, a notice of which appears in our sale register When the Shoe Factory Whis tle Blows. 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 machinery. They bewail and lament the absence of cordiality on the pan ot their principal, and envy the re gard that seems to fall to a PAVOB- HD few. They can't understand.lt. In their estimation one person y as good as another. Do they ever balance theJfKattec in this way? lObnia as Lite in the morning as possible, and my main anxiety is to got away as quickly as 1 can at Mftotjf or jght when the whistle blows. doTust w hat I am obliged to do and no mor T"fM The toil " ""'"Ttheact: employer gets all he can out 1 will cet all I can out ot mv cm-. plover. 1 1 i nut my concern il matters 'go wrong. 1 am not here to look alter anybody's interests but mv own. From 7 to ' is an eter nity, and the dinner hour should be 1 20 minutes long. At night when the whistle blows, the quicker 1 can get away from work the better. Myself first, my employer last. Pleasure before business. As many holidays as possible. Ten hours pay for seven hours work. Againstthis is the sentiment of one of the FA VORED PEW. I give my employer the very hest in me. It is my capital to do my best, f be does not appreciete me, some one else will. Good work is my indorsement. My employer's interests foremost. 1 use every incident for his advantage, get a suggestion from a tritle and do not consider time. I am anxious of re sults first of all. When 1 am fully interested in what 1 am doing, the whistle at night is the most unwel come of sounds. As early as possi ble in the morning and as late as necessary at night. I do all I can and watch for an opportunity to do more. BALANCE THE two. Is it any wonder that one is a worn out machine and the the other a respected assistant'.' It docs not take long for th' employer to esti mate thi' attitude of those under him. Sons and daughters and all whom it may .concern, tight your own bat tles, hoe your own row. Ask no favors of any one and then you arc not in debt and are not expected to return any favors and you will suc ceed a thousand times better than one who is always beseeching sonic one else's influence and patronage. No one will ever help you as yon help yourself, because no one will be so heartily interested in your a Hairs. Men and women who have made fortunes arc not those who have had 6,000 given them to start with, but the boys and girls who have started lair with a well earned dol lar or two. Frankness, enthusiasm, willing ness and energy sieak in unmistak able accent, and are the only true way to success. Wait for opportunity, but better still, make your opportunity, .wait for nothing, especially do not wait idly for the whistle to blow. As eyer, Zip. The "Little Blue Book."
