Business Salesman Should
Be Good Judge
Instinct of Values
By T. RAYLE BRUCE
O NE day a crippled lad wandered into a country store and thus
accosted the proprietor: "Can I sell you some lead pencils
today? I have some nice ones at 25 cents a dozen."
The merchant sold pencils himself, and was therefore not
a likely purchaser, but au business was not particularly rushing at that
moment he indulged in a little good-natured chaff at the boy's expense.
He examined the pencils carelessly and asked in feigned amazement,
"What, 25 cents a dozen for these? I have a better pencil in stock that
I sell for 15 cents a dozen," and he reached over to the show case and
pulled out a package of pencils for which he had actually paid 45 cente
a dozen only a few days before.
The boy took them in hand, examined them critically, reached down
into his pocket, passed 15 cents over to the proprietor with the remark,
"I guess I'll take these," and calmly walked out of the store.
Nor did the merchant stop him and explain that it was a joke. It
was done in such a businesslike way and the youngster had taken it so
seriously that he won the other's admiration and the merchant admitted
in telling the story on himself that it was the best case of business instinct
he had seen for many a day.
The crippled boy had a quality in his makeup that meant success.
This attribute was keen judgment or business acumen. He so quickly
recognized the value of the pencils that he acted in his own interest at
once. It is as important for the salesman as it is for
the merchant that he should know how to determine
In almost any business you can find employees
who have grown gray in the service whose judgment
of values has not grown with their years. Younger
employees, with less experience, may have it. The
latter have that inestimable treasure, business instinct .4
-the former never will have it. The latter will suc
ceed in a business where buying and selling are the
factors; the former will not.
The man who has not in him the business instinct
which makes him a judge of values had better get out
of a business that calls for buying and selling and into
another line of work where it is not required. a

The extremely poor man who longs for
the country, who would joyfully till the soil, has to take a back seat. He
has not the means to travel the distances or to acquire the first requisites. t
I myself bought, years ago, ten acres in the east, intending to go
there and raise small garden truck, but fate kept me here, until now,
when, because of high expense, I am totally unable to go. The land
is there, unused.
So we see that with all their good intentions the different organize
tions have not got at the root of the evil.
There should be institutions which furnish to willing and honest men
the first substantial means to start them on land which they own, taking
such lands for a certain length of time as security for the amount received.
There are thousands who could thus be happy to become farmers and
h raise the food supply for the cities.
The government should advance to those the means needed and not
compel them to spend the little they have saved for traveling hundreds e
of miles only to find out that their lottery ticket did not win.
