thetic Story of Toby
From "Letter) From n Self Made ilfer
rhuiit) to Ilia Sim," ly Uarrge Horace
Lorimer. liy permission of Small, May
iianl & Co., 1'ublinhcrit, lioaton
I nevi;r do business with a woman
that I don't think of n little incident
which happened when I was first mar
ried to your ma. We set up housekeep
ing In one of those cottages that you
read about in the story boohs, but that
you want to shy away from when it's
put up to you to live in one of them.
It was just the place to go for a picnic,
but it's been my experience that a fel
low does most of his picnicking before
he's married.
Your ma did the cooking and I hus
tled for things to cook, though I would
take a shy at it myself once lu awhile
and get up uiy muscle tossing flapjacks.
It was pretty rough sailiug, you bet,
but one way and another we managed
to get a good deal of satisfaction out of
it, because we had made up our minds
to take our fun as we went along.
With most people happiness is some
thing that is always just a day off. But
I have made It a rule never to put off
being happy till tomorrow.
I was clerking In a general store at
that time, but I had a little weakness
for live stock even then, and while I
couldn't afford to plunge in it exactly
I managed to buy a likely little shote
that I reckoned on carrying through
the summer on credit and presenting
with a bill for board iu the fall. He
was just a plain pig when he came to
us, and we kept him iu a little sty, but
we weren't long in finding out that he
wasn't any ordinary root and grunt
pig. The first I knew your ma was
calling him Toby and had turned him
loose. Answered to his name like a
dog. Never saw such a sociable pig.
Wanted to sit on the porch with us.
Tried to come into the bouse evenings.
Used to run down the road squealing
for joy when he saw me coming home
from work.
Well, it got on toward November, and
Toby had been making the most of his
opportunities. I never saw a pig that
turned corn into fat so fast, and the
stouter he got the better his disposition
grew. I reckon I was attached to him
myself in a sort of a sneaking way, but
I was mighty fond of hog meat, too,
and we needed Toby in the kitchen. So
I sent around and had him butchered.
When I got home to dinner next day,
I noticed that your ma looked mighty
solemn as she set the roast of pork
down in front of me, but I strayed off,
thinking of something else as I carved,
and my wits were off woolgathering
sure enough when I said:
"Will you have a piece of Toby, my
dear?"
Well, sir, she just looked at me for a
moment, and then she burst out crying
and ran away from the table. But
when I went after her and asked her
what was the matter she stopped cry
ing and was mad in a minute all the
way through. Called me a heartless,
cruel cannibal. That seemed to relieve
her so that she got over her mad and
began to cry again. Begged me to take
Toby out of pickle and to bury him in
the garden. I reasoned with her, and
in the end I made her see that any
obsequies for Toby, with pork at 8
cents a pound, would be a. pretty ex
pensive funeral for us. But first and
last she had managed to take my appe
tite .-ay so that I didn't want any
roast pork for dinner or cold pork for
supper.
That night I took 'what was left of
Toby to a storekeeper at the Crossing,
who I knew would be able to gaze on
his hams without bursting into tears,
and got a pretty fair price for him.
I simply mention Toby in passing as
an example of why I believe women
weren't cut out for business at least
for the pork packing business. I've had
dealings with a good many of them,
first and last, and it's been my experi
ence that when they've got a weak
case they add their sex to it and win,
and that when they've got a strong
case they subtract their sex from it
and deal with you harder than a man.
They're simply bound to win either
way, and I don't like to play a game
where I haven't any show. When a
clerk makes a fool break, I don't want
to beg his pardon for calling his atten
tion to It, and I don't want him to
blush and tremble and leak a little
brine into a fancy pocket handkerchief.
A little change is a mighty soothing
thing, and I like a woman's ways too
much at home to care very much for
them at the office. Instead of hiring
women I try to hire their husbands,
and then I usually have them both
working for me. There's nothing like a
woman at home to spur on a man at
the office.
GOING THE WHOLE HOG
You Must Do If to Win In Pork Packing
vnd Other Things
You've got to believe that the Lord
made the first hog with the Graham
brand burned in the skin and that the
drove which rushed down a steep place
was packed by a competitor. You've
got to know your goods from A to Iz
zard, from snout to tail, on the hoof
and in the can. Y'ou've got to know 'em
like a young mother knows baby talk
and to be as proud of 'em as the young
father of a twelve pound boy, without
really thinking that you're stretching
it four pound. You're got to believe In
yourself and make your buyers tak
stock In you at par aud accrued Inter
est. You've got to have the scent of a
bloodhound for an order and the grip of
a bulldog on a customer. You've got
to feel tho snme personal solicitude
over a bill of goods that strays off to a
competitor as a parson over a back
slider and hold special services to
bring it back into the fold. You've got
to get up every morning with deter
mination if you're going to go to bed
with satisfaction. You've got to cat
hog, think hog, dream hog In short, go
the whole hog if you're going to wlr
out in the pork packing business.
That's a pretty liberal receipt. I
know, but It's Intended for a fellow
who wants to make a good sized pie.

"OLD GORGON
ON COLLEGES

Men They Develop Them
From "Letters From a Self Made Mcr
chantto Ills Son," by George
Horace Lorimer
Dear Tierrepont Your ma got back
safe this morning, and she wants me
to be sure to tell you not to overstudy,
and I want to tell you to be sure not
to understudy. What we're really
sending you to Harvard for is to get a
little of the education that's so good
and plenty there. When it's passed
around, you don't want to be bashful,
but reach right out and take a bi
helping every time, for I want you to
get your share. You'll find that edu
cation's about the only thing lying
around loose in this world and that it's
about the only thing a fellow can have
as much of as he's willing to haul
awav. Everything else is screwed
down tight and the screwdriver lost
I'm anxious that you should be
good scholar, but I m more, anxious
that you should be a good, clean man,
And if you graduate with a sound con
science I shan't care so much if there
are a few holes in your Latin. There
are two parts of a college education
the part that you get in the schoolroom
from the professors and the part that
you get outside of it from the boys,
That's the really important part, for
the first can only make you a scholar,
while the second can make you a man.
Education is a good deal like eating
a fellow can't always tell which par
ticular thing did him good, but he can
usually tell which one did him harm.
After a square meal of roast beef and
vegetables and mince pie and water
melon you can't sayjust which ingre
dient is going into muscle, but you
don't have to be very bright to figure
out which one started the demand for
pain killer in your iusides or to guess
next morning which one made you be
lieve in a personal devil the night be
fore. And so while a fellow can't fig
ure out to an ounce whether it's Latin
or algebra or history or what among
the solids that is building him up in
this place or that, he can go right
along feeding them in and betting
that they're not the things that turn
his tongue fuzzy.
Does a college education pay? Does
it pay to feed in pork trimmings at 5
cents a pound at tiie hopper and draw
out nice, cunning little "country" sau
sages at 20 cents a pound at the other
end? Does it pay to take a steer that's
been running loose on the range and
living on cactus and petrified wood
till hei just a bunch of barbed wire
and sole leather and feed him corn till
he's just a solid hunk of porterhouse
steak and oleo oil?
You bet.it pays. Anything extra that
trains a boy to think and to think
quick pays. Anything that teaches a
boy to get the answer before the other
fellow gets through biting the pencil
pays.
College doesn't make fools. It de
velops them. It doesn't make bright
men. It develops them. A fool will
turn out a fool whether he goes to
college or not, though he'll probably
turn out a different sort of a fool.
PLAY AND PIE
Both
Good, but It Isn't Wise to Ma.ke
&. Me&l of Either
g
Of course all this is going to take so
much time and thought that you won't
have a very wide margin left for golf
especially in the afternoons. I simply
mention this in passing, because I see
in the Chicago papers which have been
sent me that you were among the play
ers on the links me afternoon a fort
night ago. Golf's a nice, foolish game
and there ain't any harm in it so far as
I know except for the balls the stiff
balls at the beginning, the lost balls in
the middle and the highballs at the end
of the game. But a young fellow who
wants to be a boss butcher hasn't
much daylight to waste on any kind of
links except sausage links.
Of course a man should have a cer
tain amount of play, just as a boy is
entitled to a piece of pie at the end of
his dinner, but he don't want to make
a meal of it. 'Any one who lets sinkers
take the place of bread and meat gets
bilious pretty young, and these felHws
who haven't any job except to blow the
old man's dollars are a good deal like
the little niggers in the pie eating eon
test at the county fair they've a-plenty
of pastry and they're attracting a
heap of attention, but they've got a
stomach ache coming to them by and
by. From "Letters From a Self Made
