A CONFEDERATE ON THE
President Wilson's appointment of former Senator
Blackburn of Kentucky, a confederate veteran, as
member of the Lincoln Memorial commission in
succession to the late Senator Cullom, is most ap
propriate. Throughout the civil war Lincoln actcl
on the theory that the South was a part of this
republic and its citizens were his brothers. He
fought not as an aggressor, but in defense of a
principle. And, if Lincoln had lived to bind the
wounds of the South, the history of the reconstru
tion period would have been far different. All tit's
the South of today realizes.
A Southernor is President of the United Sra-t?:
and a former confederate soldier is chief justice
of the Federal Supreme court. The war is over in
the fullest sense. The designation of Senator
Blackburn as member of the Lincoln Memorial com
mission will but put the final seal on a closed bo
of history. AVe believe the spirit of the man whom
the memorial honors would give benedict ion lo
BOSS OR MANAGER.
John D. Rockefeller is reported as saying to o
of his assistants the following:
"My experience has shown me that it is just
as easy to turn a good man into u poor one as
it is to turn a poor man into a good man. Many
of the most valued assistants J have around
mo seemed to be unpromising material at first;
and let me say, Mr. , that includes your
self. Don't scold and don't worry. Take time
to talk to those young fellows when you're
alone. Talk to them about business, just as
you would talk to me or a friend. Thirty min
utes of that talk will put two years of steadi
ness into them. They'll have something to
think about. You'll be making men, instead of
employes. Rouse their interest, and the ener
gies that interest never fail to produce. The
future not the past, is always the banner to
float before young delinquents."
"We know that at times it is extremely exasper
ating to find that employes neglect matters that
should be given first attention or that they are
careless in not doing properly what they are told
to do, in not using horse sense, so to speak, and
the natural temptation is to "ily off the handle"
and give a man a piece of one's mind, letting him
know just "what's what."
But any one can do this. Jt doesn't take a busi
ness man to give vent to his passions nr feelings i.i
such a manner, but it is a good sign of a good busi
ness man or a good executive if lie eontrols his feel
ings and restrains himself so as lo lead his em
ployees to see the mistakes that tuey are making rts
one friend would talk with another, rather than
to attempt to "rub it in" when a man makes an
The best results arc obtained nor by bossing, not
by "lording it over" another, but 'iy showing a
man just where his mistake lies, and suggesting to
him the better way, lending a hand if necessary, to
'do the work as it should bo done, so as to show by
examplo just how a given task can best be accom
plished. This is one way of obtaining success. No man
can attempt to do it all, no matter how small his
business is, and the lorger the business or the quick
er you want it to grow, the more care you should
-use in training your assistants inlo the right way.
There is not a business man today but who do
.ponds very much upon his employes, just as much
as his employes arc depending upon him.
Appreciation of an employe's work, of his ef
forts, is also a good stimulant, and nothing will do
more to develop a young man's interest in the busi
ness than to show your appreciation by a friendly
word as to the effort that he is making. -Square
