The system of endorsing is all
wrong, and should be utterly abol
%ished. It has been the financial
ruin of more men than perhaps all
-other causes. Boolc-Keepi-ng. a jour
'nal devoted to merchants, clerks and
business men, advises our young
men especially, to study the matter
-carefully in all its bearings, and

their conduct, so as to be ready to
answer the man who ask them to
sign his note. What responsibility
does one assume when he endorses
a note? Simply this: He is held
for the payment of the amount in
'full, principal and interest, if the
, maker of the note, though misfor

fails to pay it. Notice, the endors
er assumes this responsibility, with
no voice in the management of the
business and no share in the profits
of the transaction, if it proves profit.
.able; but with a certainty of loss
,if, for any of the reason stated, the
principal fails to pay the note.
