LITTLE THINGS IN BUSINESS
In Many Ways They Have an Impor
tance That at First Seems Out
A seemingly insignificant word is'
"Detail," but have you ever Btoppcd to
consider that success is dependent on
It in a largo measure or that failure
may be the oulcomb, If you neglect the
most trivial detail?
Competition today is so keen that
the alert and energetic business man
will make it a point to see that the
smallest and seemingly unimportant
part of his business has tho same
care and attention as the most im
portant parts, for It is the looking
after these little things that assists
In materially Increasing your business
and putting It on a higher piano.
We are prone to attach little sig
nificance to letter writing, and Btlll
have you ever roallzed. that your let
ter Is a true Index to your business
methods, and that carefulness In writ
ing Is essontlal, for the impression it
conveys Is very Important?
The receiving of complaints and
the adjusting of them Is another es
pecial detail. Haw many future sales
are assured by proper adjustment of
somo wrong, whether real or fancied,
and, too, consider tho good Impression
you have helped to promote.
If we were to attempt to enumerate
all tho trifles there still would be
some missing when we got through,
for tho little things that need your
attention are so varied and happen
ing so unexpectedly they necessitate
CLUNG TO HER MORTAL LIFE
Little Thing Like Having Head Cut
Off Apparently Did Not Worry
A headless hen that for 12 hours
after she was decapitated, walked
around the corral like any other
chicken, has been worrying Ephralm
Tucker, a local stationery merchant,
residing at 408 Eureka Btreet, accord
ing to a Hedlands (Cal.) dispatch to
the New York Herald. The hen had
been suffering several days from what
Is known as the gapes. She became
so sickly that often a conference with
his wife Tucker decided to cut the
hen's head off and end her misery.
When he performed the operation
the wound did not bleed. Instead ol
fluttering to tho ground tho hen
walked off a few feet and stood still.
Tucker was puzzled.
When he returned at 11 o'clock he
went back to the corral with a lan
tern. The hen was still standing, and
in addition had laid an egg.
Next morning the merchant went to
the chicken yard once more. The head
less hen had moved 20 feet, but was
apparently as full of life as any ol
the other chickens.
Tucker could stand It no longer. He
seized the hen and with tho hatchet
cut off what was left of Its neck. This
time tho hen fluttered and died.
A Century Ago.
Mortlmor M. Jackson, a distin
guished Jurist, was born 100 years ago,
March 6, in Rensselaervtlle, N. Y. At
the age of twenty-four he moved to
Milwaukee, where he engaged In the
practice of law. He was a member of
tho Territorial convention of 1840, and
helped to organize tho Whig party In
the territory and to oppose the exten
sion of slavery. He was attorney gen
eral of the territory for five years and
one of the first circuit court Judges
of the state of Wisconsin. In 1857 he
was the defeated Republican candi
date for United States senator. In
1861 President Lincoln appointed him
United States Consul at Halifax,
where during the Civil war he ren-'
dcrcd the country valuable service. In
1882, after more than 20 years in the
consular service, Mr. Jackson returned
to his home in Madison, Wis., where
he died in 1889.
Measuring Man's Worth.
Dr. Katharine M. H. Blackford told
tho Efficiency society at ltB annual
meeting some of the ways of meas
uring man's worth almost as accur
ately as though his moral and mental
qualities could be placed upon the
scales. All that the man doing the
measuring has to do 1b to keep tab
on something like 64 characteristics
and qualifications. "One must be very
careful not to make mistakes," Doc
tor Blackford admitted. "There was
a foreman, once who expressed dissat
isfaction with the methods. Ho
showed his tables. Tho group of
workmen under him measured up:
Cheerfulness, 100 per cent.; accuracy,
orderliness, 100 per cent 'Then,'
asked his employer, 'what's the mat
ter?' Aw, said the foreman, 'they're
so darned gloomy.'"
a8trathcona's Big Banquet.
It was the late Lord Btrathcona,
chancellor of the University of Aber
deen,, who was the presiding genius
of the quartercentenary celebrations
In 1906. He gave the gargantuan
banquet to about three thousand grad
uates and undergraduates. He built
a hall specially for the dinner, and
brought all the materials, together
with 700 waiters to serve them, from
London, in three special trains. The
organization was perfect, and the
colossal arrangements moved without
confusion or hitch.
