WHJ TH K SHUTTKKS AliE UP THE MEANEST MAN ON EARTH. At last haa the meanost man on earth been found. It has hitherto been believed that the record belonged to the manufacturer oi explosive* who, when sonie of hib workmen were blown up, docked them for the time they were in the air. A Middlesex man has, however, "gone one bettor" than tnis. He gives his children a penny each at night to go to bed without any supper, pnd charges them a penny apiece for their breakfast? next morning, in order, &s ho says, to teach them the value of money. A POOR RETURN. They met on State Street. Do you remember mc Can't say that I do." "Well, just ton years ago to-night I asked you fer a match on this coiner. You gave it to me. I went home, lit the match, acci- dently burnod the house down, and got 50,000 dols. insurance. I am glad of an opportu- nity to reward you-" With With another match." BUYING TOO MUCH. In talking this matter over with a retailer, he said The hardest thing about the re- tail shop business is to keep from buying more than you need. Some years ago I woke to the fact that I hDd consideraDie goxl money tied up in unsaleable stock. I was buying carefully enough, as I thought, but the stufT would accumulate. The trouble was I could not resist a bargain and would please my trade. I would look at the shelve already pretty well stocked, but say to my- self, Oh, well, It's a long time before I'll get them—three or four moithc-aii-i by that time I can surely uoe them all right,' and down would go the order. Perhaps when the goods came I hail 'o'L-!iers' a,i,l didn't need them nearly as much as I was going to in short, I could have got along very nicely without them. So I made up my mind never to buy an article unless I ab-oluteiy had to have it—couldn't get along without it, and I ceased to speculate so far in the future, an < results havo been a surprise to me. Not only do I keep my stock fresher, cleaner and bet- ter sized, but I fined it much easier to eell goods and please the trade." THE MAN WHO DOES. It is not the man with the past record or a glowing future who attracts the attention of this busy world, but the man who does. We have all of us met individuals who wer* living en their past records, and who never tirad of talking in season and out of season about the things which they had done. There is still another class, who are always dealing in futures, and giving glowing accounts of what they intend to do. But. fortunately, there is still another class, which includes the real workers, and consists of Ihe men and wjmen who are con- tent with their past record, satisfied to let the future take care of itself, and arc bend- ing all their efforts on Lhe duties of to-d sv To this class belong ihe man who doe?. It goes without saying that he is a busy man. Every hour of the day finds him at the dezk intent upon the work which he turns out is a complete and finished product in itself. He does not worry much about the past, nor does he think very much about the future, for be realises that the present, if rightly cared for, will result in the future taking care of itself. He considers the task at hand more import- ant than anything which ha; been or any- thing which the future may have in store. It is this class of men who. under the right conditions, get ahead in the world and com- mand the recognition which they deserve. Truo, there are oxcepticns, where honest, cap- able work does not seem to recieve the re- cognition which is due. Still, the man who is doing realises that he cannot afford to give the world anything but the best product of his brain and Fkill. What may seem to be lack of recognition new, may prove a s+ep- ing-stone to larger and better appreciate 1 results later on. Like tha man who carried the message to Garcia, the man who does has his prototype in thousands of busy, indus- trious men who are adding each day their quota to the world's progress. The past we cannot recall. The future is beyond our grasp. The present is all that we (an call our own, and upon the faithful performance of each day's duties depends in a large meas- ure what the world calls success.—From "the Hardwareman."
