And so Aaron 1ittle dimissed the

not gone well with him for a year past.
Duli 1 illness and bad debts hail placel

condition. Taking trade as it had
been for the pasd months, he
could not imagine how. with the re
sources at hi- command, his payments
were to ho made.
"I must get more capital," he said to
himself. That V, plain. And with
more capital must come in a partner.
I don't like partnership-?. It is very
dillicu't for two men to work together
harinouiou-dy. You may get entan
jrTcd with a rousrh. It's a risky busi
ness, but I see no other way out of
this trouble. My own capital i too
light for the bnduess I am doing, and
as a measure of safety, more must be
brought in. Lawrei ce is anxious to
join me, and he savs he can command
ten thoumd dollars. 1 do not like
him in all re -peets ; he's too fond of
pleasure, lint I want his money more
than bis ni l in business. He might
remain a silent partner if he cho"-e.

he can bring in ten thousand dollars,
