HE GOT HIS RAISE.
How a Boy In Field's Office Succeodod
IR Getting lt.
Years ago a small boy who was
working In Marshall Field's whole
sale house conceived the idea that he
e ught to have a raise in bis salary.
He was then receiving $4 a week, and
he believed he was worth $5. He
asked the manager of his department
for a raise, but was refused. Not
daunted, be went to the next higher
authority, only to be again disappoint
ed. He continued to run the complete
gamut of managers until his only
hope lay In going to Mr. Field him
self with his request. One morning
he lay in wait outside Marshall Field's
private office, and, when the merchant
prince arrived, immediately waylaid
him and stated the case to him. Mr.
Field listened patiently to the boy's
story, but a stern look came over his
"""See here, my boy, you aie paid $4
a^-week err. are you Tit?" beaskpd.
"Yea, sir," the boy answered, **b?t
I'm worth $5 to you."
"When I* was' considerably older
than you I was only getting $3 a
week, and I think yon ought to be sat
isfied with $4," said Mr. Field.
The youngster saw an his hopes
.sashed to the ground. Tears of dis
appointment came to his eyes, and hs.]
."Well, perhaps you wasn't. worth
more than $3 a week."
Marshall Field laughed. The boy
got his raise.-Lippincott's Magazine.

tard seed to cornfield beans. The distance apart and the quantity of
.seed dropped can be quickfr regulated,/If the seed are sound, a farmer
I who uses a Deers planter can have a definite idea as to the stand of the
crop when the seed are put in the ground. Nothing superior on the
market. Another strong feature is that the quantity of fertilizer can not
only be regulated, but it is mixed with the soil by the distributor, in
stead of being in a stream, which might prevent gemination should the
seed fall directly upon the guano.
Deere Diverse Cultivator
Another implement which we strongly recommend is the Diverse Cul
tivator which is easily adjusted to any width rows. Where rows are ir
regular in width this cultivator can be adjusted without stopping the
team. The centre tooth can also be removed if desired. The Diverse
Cultivator is a labor saving implement that every farmer in Edgefield
county should own. It is not only labor saving but does the work in a J
highly satisfactory manner. We study the farmers needs and carry an
assortment of the most improved implements to meet their needs.. .
