L lude for a self-contained and Independent older age, and if such
is tho case, there la ovory probability that a certain 9-year-old
youth, known as Duster and residing In the West Farnam
neighborhood, will bo a captain of Industry.
Hla genius was brought to my attention the other day as ho was
making contracts with other boys, some younger and others older than
himself, to dig dandelions out of his father's lawn. Ho waB qulto a
bargainer and considered bids all tho way up to IB cents per small
basket measure for tho work.
When accosted on how much ho was getting for the work he
answered cvaslvoly, saying that It should mako nd difference as long
(is he paid for tho services rendered him.
Thn mobility of his sDcclal talent Interested mo and after follow
ing th lead along a little ways I learned that he had first contracted
with his father to clear ho pest at 25 cents por basket, leaving a tolera
ble good profit of 10 cents and up for his brain work.
