"That noo feller acrost thJ
branch on th' Brown place wont
har'ly keep up ith th perces
shun hyer 'bouts," remarked
the philosopher one April even
ing. "Haow d'ye know, Unc'
Josh?" asked some one, "he
haint been here more'n ' six
weeks, an' he 'pears all right."
"Wall, I wuz pas' his place a
Tusday, an' he wuz plowin' fur
oats. The groun' wuz fine, jus'
'bout dry enuf an' warm. It
wa'n't hard an' tough like ol'
sod, but nice, smooth plowin.
"Wall, thet feller hed run a cou
,ple furrers acrost th' field, an'
they wuz crooked ez a dawg's
hin' leg. Thet's enough fer me
a man thet can't turn a clean
furrer ain't a goln' to hoi' his
own a-farmin' in this nabor
hood." It' so in business. A store
must plow straight to hold its
customers. No crooked work;
This will enable it to plow the
best furrow and attract more
customers. To do this we have
divided our business up into a
great number of specialty stores
all under the one general
head, of course. Each section is
managed by a man or woman
who knows that branch of busi
ness best; no manager is asked
to know anything else than his
own specialty, or to bother about
anything else; all anyone has to
do is to plow his or her furrow
"Plow deep and straight with
all your powers," says Home.
