Besides this we have abolished the old mode of transacting business. In former years~
wing to the fact that we like all Americans like to keep up with the fashion and the ways of
around us, have sold goods too high in order to make a good showing of assets.
But the writer had a dream.*He was in his office, he had ledgers piled high, that represen
housands of dollars. 3-S claims out of date, barred by the Statute of limitation, 3-8 barred
the right of the landlord, and 2-S barred by the drought and expiration of wind in the lunge
old ponies and blind mules. All these amounts kept running on; each year they were- f
p as assets-a big bubble madec, filled with air, and like the boy's soap bubble soon burst,
ntgone, account worthless. He had run the tenant in the spring and summer, when
uas in sight; the landlord took him up when the cotton camne in. He awoke, and swore that
ould never follow such business again; that bright as the prospects might be, that armed

his business to something tangible.
