Not quite "the first of the season."
Several persons about Winchester
gathered ripe strawberries in Apiil.
Jr. Clojiton found ripe ones nearly a
month ago.
Success in a business enterprise is
much more dependent on integrity and
truthfulness than is generally suppos
ed. True, the policy of honesty has
long been acknowledged in axiom,
Mil we have til ways been taught that
"the way of Ihe transgressor is hard;"
, i lL . ... i
but there is a prevatling notion among
certain classes of speculators that
such a policy is not this most prolita-
bit.. "Honesty is the best poliev,"say i
lhev."bnt it dues nut nav." Men who
have been educated in strict integri
ty who in their hearts abhor its op
posite in any form, are sometimes de
ceived by the. specious appearance of;
those whom it would be degrading to ,
imitate. A merchant employs a 1

of falsehood ami guilt. It is seldom
indeed, however, that any house lirst
becomes bankrupt from outside press
ure. In almost every instance it ari
ses primarily, from internal derange
ment more than from tho want of cus
tomers. And what art; we to expect
from the internal arrangement of a
concern conducted on principles of
which we have been speaking!
If you teach or allow your clerks or
salesman to be deceitful for you, will
jthcy not bo so (or thcmselvt s.' Jfyou
ieacli them to be dishonest, is it not a
lesson for themselves which tiny
will act upon whenever opportunity
serves? Do not hug the delusion that
.because you are the employer there
fore they will not wrong you. Why!
you have taught them that a disregard
for integrity will make them smart
business men, and you have made it a
part ol their trade to lie and steal.
However tncy may respect you, their
own interests are dearer to them than
yours; and if they will cheat for you,
thev will cheat for themselves, espe
cially when in taking for you they act
under your instructions.
From the moment you permit a dis
honest actio'i in your store you are
not safe; and wc submit it to the ex
perience of every businessman that
such is always in the end robbed by
bis employees of more than he steals
from his customers, through trickery.
Ho will fail, lluin sooner or later
overtakes him, mid when it does it,
is of such a nature as to precludo all
hopo of recovery. Property, charac
ter, caste, all are gone, and his pros
tration is utter.
Upon the consideration of the wholo
matter, therefore, we conclude that
there is no investment that will pay
better, more surely, or more honorably
in any business transaction than truth.

Man was born for society not soli

monkish origin, with comparatively
few exceptions, unci mostly adventi
tious. Ian cannot, properly speak

Nature is the only universal lan
guage can speak without a tongue
paint without a pencil or brush. The
frostbites without teeth. The wind
cuts without a tool, and whistle with
out a muth.
When a man lias no design but to
speak plain truth, ho may say a great
