He !.&! not adopted the profit-sharing system and since his help did not divide his profits, which as a rule went sufficiently large, he did not feel tuat he should expect them. U. share the loss. The re sult was that hia employes never left him his Interest were their Interests, and each year he felt that their In creased experience, coupled with their unflagging asallulty, entitle! them to larger pay.
