High-priced men, in some establish ments, waste valuable time by having to attend committee meeting! which do not bear directly upon their work. The old-fashioned eostom of having the heads of departments eomc together at stated times, irrespective of whether there is anything to consider that bears upon the work of all, is being given up by institutions that keep abreast with modern methods. As such committees usually have no power to act, but can All his time is taken up with these cards only recommend, the things that they consider can always be done from the start, as they must be in the end, by the two or three persons directly con cerned. A well-known book house was hyp notized by a "wise" young man just out of college,- who "showed" the man ager thai he had just the System needed to keep records of the actual cost of, and revenue derived from, every book issued. Tin publishers had got on very well with a careful, con scientious man who had been with them for years; but they became afflicted with the new malady, and put the young man in charge. He established his "system" of cards, and employed three girls to take care of them, in cluding one whose sole duty was to look up information wanted. And now, after several* years, a Business Sur geon, in reorganizing the house, hag abolished the System, young man and all, and put in a competent workman,, who is doing exactly as the former manager did. Work is not always equitably dis tributed. In niosl establishments will be found men wbo are always "too busy," although in the same depart ment will be others who have "nothing to do." And it is human nature, for the sake of good fellowship, to cover up weak phases in management or exe cution. Department heads will be found breaking-iu too many green hands; high salaried men will open the mail; and salesmen will frequent the office, when they should be out getting orders. The foregoing are only a few of the ailments, some of which are found in nearly all business houses. In their ag gregate, they are of tremendous im Those who ignore Advertisements fall short of their opportunities. Continued from f'uye fi ) portanee and costly to the firms. In fact,.it is admitted by at least one manager of ■ large trust that many small businesses are able to keep go ing, despite the opposition of the "com bines," because the latter are so cum bered with ponderous Systems that they can not take care of orders ex peditiously. While they are getting out vouchers and O. X.'s, the little competitor has loaded the goods on a Wagon and is sending them to the cus tomer. What is it, ask the Developers of Earning Power, but too much system, or lack of proper organization, that in the majority of cases causes clerical or median- ical overtime? The writer has seen half a dozen men working until midnight three times a month, sim ply to get out vouchers that were entirely unnec essary. In a Western iron works the whole force list lessly worked through a "dull season," and then rushed night and day for weeks to get out orders on time for delivery during the "busy season." These orders had been on the books all the time, and could just as well have been made up during the dull period, leaving the busy season for real rush orders. The new reor ganizers would have re distributed this work at' once, so as to have av eraged the labor and elim- mated (lie overtime; there- by Mving wages atul the productive capacity of the workmen. A pro lessor of history in one of the leading colleges thought it would be an admirable idea to establish a card sys tem. He has drawers by the score, tilled with carefully tabulated chrono logical data, evidence divided and sub divided ad in fin it inn ; references, first class, second class, and third class — everything that could ever be of the •lightest use to an explorer into the past. The System soon outgrew his power to keep up with it, and now uives almost constant employment to two students who are working their way through college. When the pro fessor wishes to add a statement to his System, he makes a note on his cuff or on the back of an envelope, and hands it to one of the students, who makes the necessary entries and it formally becomes part of the reference library. Tt lias become a standing joke at the college that whenever Professor Blank is not at class he will be found working on his cards. He has had to suspend work on a valuable history, be cause all his time is taken up with these cards. Precedents are the bane of progress. It is the business of the Business Sur geon to perform major operations — to lop off the "things that father used to do" — and to introduce modern methods. The founder of a woodwork manufacturing establishment in the Middle West found it wise, when be ginning his business years ago, to pub lish a magazine as a side issue, largely for the purpose of cleverly advertising his wares. The publication succeeded well for a time; and when the original proprietor was replaced by his son, the latter looked upon it as one of the most important parts of the business. is You will be surprised at the num ber of your friends who chew gum if you offer your box of COLGAN'S Mint or Violet CHIPS "The Gum that's Round" Staid, sombre business fellows, dainty misses, austere maiden ladies, everyone succumbs to the delightful fragrance and deliciously dainty flavor of Colgan's Mint or Violet Chips.
