I . jfl GOOD GROUNDS FOR
Not long ngo tho manager of a largo firm employing over*fifty office men
was approached by a young man who had been In his employ scarcely two
weeks, who announced that he had a complaint to make. The manager put
on his green-persimmon expression and said:
"More salary wanted. 1 suppose?"
"Trouble with the head clerk, then?"

"No." said the complainer, "1 want more work."
"He Kot it." said the manager later, discussing the matter. "1 gave him
enough to wreck the nervous system of a good-sized horse and put Thomas
A. Edison to shame as a lazy and shiftless trifler; and he did it like a man.
Today he Is running this oll'.ce when I am gone, and getting more pay than
any two other men In the establishment."

stud of horses and the most skillful
and finished bareback riders, gymnasts
and acrobats In the profession: that

vigorous speclmerits of all that is
strange, rare and curious within the
range of natural history. The .lohn
