First of all, pay your debts.
Pay the smallest debts first. The
man to whom you owe a dollar and
a half will wor?y you more than
the man whose claim is a thousand
dollars. A great many people
make the mistake of making small
payments on large deb's, instead
of paying small debts in full. The
world excuses the debtor who owes
a large sum, but the man who neg
lects to pay small debts injures
his credit in the eyes of the busi
ness world. Every man should be
jealous of his credit. Pay small
debts, even if you have to borrow
the money. Establish the reputa
tion of being a debt-payer-and
this cannot be done if you allow
small debtors to complain of your
neglect. Better owe for the house
in which you live than to be in
debted to your wash-woman.

unquestionably due to the single

the worst feature of it is that there
is no reasonable probability of
things improving in that regard
during the present administration,
since the present chief executive
and congress were elected distinct
ly on that issue. He says that if
the people now had a chance to
reverse their verdict it would be
done. He predicts the election of
a democratic congress next year
and an utter roui of the repub
licans in 1900, the first year
of the twentieth century, when
