When I was twenty-five years ot age
t was sent to St- Paul by the firm I I
was with to establish an agency for
their goods. I soon discovered that
there was - a concern In Minneapolis
which was selling the same' grade of
goods and always underbidding me.
went over there to see If I could
make a scale of prices with the under
bidding firm.
I found a young "man even younger
than myself. He was not acting as
agent, but for. himself. I stated my
business, to which he listened atten
tively. I argued that If he continued
to underbid me I would begin to un
derbid him, and one would thus ruin
each other's trade, whereas if we made
prices together we could both succeed.
When I had finished he said:
What guaranty have I that you
will keep your agreement?"
surprised at such a question, I re
plied. "The same guaranty I have that
you will keep yours."
"There is no douhf whatever that I
will keep any agreement I shall make,"
he repli'd. with some hauteur.
It. struck me that he sbould go to
some university for a course of logic,
However, I pursuaded him to make
a list of minimum prices with me and
left him well pleased with the result
of my visit. We became very good
friends as well as competitors, and
finally, when I concluded to act also
on my own account we concluded, in
order to save expenses, to form a part
nership. 1 offered to give him first
place in the firm name, but he insisted
on taking . the second, so we styled
ourselves Graves & Elliston.
I found my partner a queer mixture.
For a time I was virtual as well as
nominal head of the firm, but lost it
In a very odd way. A man came into
our store to buy a large bill of goods
on credit The profit would be large.
and I was brimful of enthusiasm over
ihe trade. Not so Elliston. He flat
ly refused to consent "to sell' the man.
When it came to his reasons he had
none to give. Irritated. 1 told him
that he should explain his position or
would dissolve the partnership,
whereupon, driven to the wall, he said
that he didn't like the shape of the
man's nose.
Notwithstanding this absurd reason,
which I inferred he had given simply
to afford me an excuse for not fulfill
ing my threat, we did not sell the
goods. Some months later the notes
the purchaser bad given other firms
were protested and every dollar of the
indebtedness was lost I charged El
liston with having some information
unknown to me about the rascal, but
he denied having any whatever. Never
theless from this time I never urged
entering upon any important transac
tion without my partner's full . ap
But when it came to a matter of sev
eral hundred or several thousand dol
lars, while I would unblusningly make
an offer of bait tne - amount asked.
Elliston could never bring himself to
consider such a course as anything but
ridiculous. Thus the large transac
tions fell into my hands. .
Although Elliston seemed to me to
be very notional, I gradually found
that he was a better business man
than I. He was certainly my superior
in looking ahead. While my mind
was on the present his was on the
future. This was especially true in
the matter of expenses. I am free to
admit that had it not been for him
our expenses would have eaten up our
profits. He was continually surprising
me, when payments we were obliged
to make came round, by having pro
vided the funds to meet them. This
faculty, together with his keeping ex
penses down, made money for us every
year for several years. Then one day
Elliston told me that he wished to sell
his interest in the business since he
purposed traveling abroad. This was
a blow to nte, for I was not minded
to give up business myself, and I was
sure I could not make money without
the aid of the typical faculties pos
sessed by "my partner. However, he
gave me easy terms, and I bought him
out .
As soon as the papers had passed El
liston bade me goodby and left for
New York to sail for Naples. A week
later I received a letter from him at
Chicago, asking me to meet him there.
Since he gave no reason I- hesitated.
However, knowing him to be a queer
fellow who usually had a reason hid
den away somewhere for what he
did, I left my business with my head
clerk and took a train.
The next evening I called at Ellis
ton's hotel and sent up my card.
was shown to a private parlor, where.
instead of finding him, a woman ad
vanced to greet me.
"You're Elliston's sister," I exclaim
ed, "doubtless his twin."
"I am Elliston himself," she replied.
. And so she was. It was a singular
story she told me how, having been
obliged to make her own wayin the
world, she had found skirts disadvan
tageous and finally donned man's at
tire. Having made enough to give her
several thousand dollars a year In
come, she gladly resumed her proper
attire, but not until she had left the,
proximity of those who had known
her as a .man.
I had always regarded my partner as
young and boyish looking, without
a beard and with a Tbusical voice.
In woman's dress Margaret Elliston
that was her. name was transfigured
into a very attractive woman. I re
mained in Chicago a week, at the end
of which time it was arranged that I
should return to Minnesota, sell the
business and we should go abroad as
husband and wife.
