IS OUR BUSINESS
Two Men and a Moral.
Two men down in the State of
Texas decided to go into business
Each had about $2000 cash and
they went east together and each
bought a stock of goods.
The first one stuck his card in
liis home papers before he bought
his goods; and when he came back
he continued to tell the people
He got acquainted and from the
first there was something doing in
that shop. He soon had to tele-
graph to fill orders where goods
He never hacrsrled over the
down but not a drop of ink will
come out of him."
They who respect themselves
will be honored; but they who do
not care about their character will
Those who touch vermilion be-
come red and those who touch ink
become black so people take their
character from their companions.
When doing what is right the
heart is easy and becomes better
every day but when practicing
deceit the mind labors and every
day gets worse.
