"Get On Good Terms' With Your Job."
The Outlook has been running a series of articles by Elmer E.
Ferris of which Peter Crowther, a grocery salesman, is the hero.
In a recent article the story is told of how Pete came to make an
address to the salespeople of a large department store and what he
said to them. He sums up all his advice in this short terse sentence,
"Get on good terms with your job."
In plain homely language he proves that this is the only way
to make a success.
When we had finished reading the article these things ' were
impressed upon our mind.
1. That salesmanship is required in every line of work. That
the doctor, lawyer and preacher must be a salesman as well as the
merchant or traveling salesman. That everyone in business has
something to sell.
2. That if you are going to sell your goods you must make
the people know its merits.
3. That you must know as much as possible about your line
before you can make plain its merits to others.
4. That if you don't think the goods you are selling are a little
better than those of anybody else for the price, as he puts it that
you have a "great line," you won't make others think so.
5. That the way to get a better job than the one you now have
is to be really interested in the work you are doing and therefore
d6 it so well that you will impress your value upon the people with
whom you come in contact and thus have a better position offered
Are you on good termswith your job ? Or do you think that
you are not appreciated and continually grumble and complain
about your lot and think you could do better at something else ?
Don't you think it would-be a good thing to try to get on "good
terms with your job ?" The great trouble is that many people and
their jobs are strangers.

New Taxation Law.
We cannot remember any law that was as unpopular as the new
tax law for the assessment of real and personal property. You can
scarcely find anyone who has a good word for this law. Why is
this so ?
Before the abolishing of the old system of assessing real and
personal property, especially personal property, it was universally
conceded to be a failure. That under the old system many evaded
taxation and that the heavy burden of taxation fell on the small
property owner all agreed. The demand for a new system whereby
the injustices of the old system would be remedied was apparently
At the last session of the state legislature the old law was re
pealed and the present law enacted.
The main changes from the old law are as follows :
Under the new law the same assessor takes both the real and
personal property. Under the old law there was a different asses
sor for the real and personal property.
Under the new law the assessors are appointed. Under the
old law they were elected.
Under the old law real estate was assessed every four years.
Under the new law it is assessed every year.
The complaints heard most frequently against the new law are
that it will be much more expensive in its workings than the old
way ; that the people are being deprived of their sacred privilege
to elect their own officers and that the governor will build up a
machine through the power given him to appoint the assessors and
thereby become a czar.
Two things must be admitted. First That the old way was a
failure or at least unsatisfactory. Second That the new law, has
not been tried.
Under the conditions would not the reasonable thing be to try
the new law before condemning it ? We are not defending the new
law because we do not know how it will work, but we do advise
giving it a fair trial. If it proves to be an unjust law: after giving
it a trial, repeal it and try something 'else.
We have sometimes wondered if the original opposition to the
new tax law did not come from the tax dodgers ; that they have
struck upon two things which appeal to the people and have been
urging them to make the law unpopular, so they can have it re
pealed and continue to dodge paying their taxes.
Let us suspend judgment until the law has had a fair trial.

Hobson stayed ashore for some time,
during -which there wus a sort of

perhaps, almost as much as It did me,

her confining her associations to one
boy not yet seventeen years old.

But I am going too fast I made my

descended into the cabin. Tbe door of
a room stood open; lt was hooked, and
I looked In.
Would that there were some medium
capable of giving my quick mental
transitions as I stood there gazing on
the object before me. There is no snch
medium; only words, and they are not
adequate. A living woman lay In a
berth. I looked at ber and wondered
where I was. what I was doing, wheth
er some mental stroke bad not befallen
me. Within a few seconds tbe with
ered features resolved themselves Into
those of my lost love. My Jennie was
there, starving.
There was not theVsame look of as

mine. Her senses were too blunted. I
