THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY.

The "Ten Demandments.'?

For gross worldly wisdom it would be difficult to surpass the '"Ten Demandments" hanging in a Canadian salmon cannery. 1. Don't lie. It wastes my time and yours. I am sure to catch you in the end, and that is the wrong'end. 2. Watch your work, not the clock. A long day's work makes a long day ahorfc; and a short day's work makes my face long. 3. Give mo more than I expect, .and I will give you more than you expect. I can afford to increase your pay if you increase my profits. 4. You owe so much to yourself you afford to owe anybody else. Keep out of debt, or keep out of my shops. 5. Dishonesty is never an accident. 'Good men, like good women, never see temptation when they meet it. __ G. Mind your own business and m time you'll have a business oLVyour own to mind. . 7. Don't do anything here winch -Jmrts vqur self-resp'eci. An employee who is' willing to steal for me .is willing to steal from me. 8. It is none of my business what you do at night. But if dissipation' affects what you do next day, and you do half as much as I you will li&t half as long as you hoped. (, & % c y ..-, 9. Don't tell me what I'd; like to hear, but what I onght to hear. I don't want a valet for my vanity, but one for my dollars. ' * , 10 Don't kick if I kick. If you're worth while correcting you're worth while keeping. I. don't waste time cutting specks out of rotten apples.
