THOUGHTS ON BUSINESS
WALDO PONDRAY WARREN
SELECTING A MAN
PICKING out the right man for the place, It often meaiurcs
the difference between success and failure In a business.
More often It measures the difference between a mod
erate success and a phenomenal one.
Twenty or more years ago a carriage factory was started
with the Idea of doing things In an original way, and a man
was chosen to carry out the Idea. He had had no previous
experience In that line, but he had the right Idea and grasped
the plan enthusiastically. The work began on a simple scale,
so that the Inexperienced man Was able to feel his way. The
business grew until It attained great proportions. The same
man Is still at the head of it, not as the owner, but as the
manager. He proved to be the right man for the place. It
would be difficult to Imagine how he might have made the
business more successful In that particular line.
In thinking of this the thought occurred to me, suppose
some other man had been chosen In the beginning. 8uppose
he had had wide experience, but a different Idea. He might
have made more rapid progress at the start, or he might have
turned the whole business Into other channels and have given
It a different character. He might not have been able to grow
ur with It, or might have left It after the first year's trial.
The present greatness of the business might have been un
known to-day If It hadn't been that the right man was chosen
when the business was small.

has the mellifluent sound of a quart of
molasses running from the spigot on a
winter's day. In easy, graceful gait
he reminds one of Oscar Wilde., When
the suffragists captured Brand Whlt
lock they bent the antls several city
blocks and a few acres thrown In.
Brand as a vote catcher has more
medals than a factory can turn out
even If the factory works more hours
than 'the law allows. The suffragist
stock has gone up more points than an
Inflated stock on the exchange. That
Is why the suffragists are saying, "I
tell you what It Is," etc.
It Is a bit singular In view of all the
arrangements made for the observance
of the centenory of Lincoln that It has
Just occurred to somebody In this town
that the site on which stood the wig
wam where Lincoln was nominated
had been overlooked. The building
stood at the northwest corner of Lake
and Market streets. The structure
wns an architectural monstrosity. The
vicinity at the time was not Inviting
One of the streets on which the build
ing looked In a sort of cross eyed way
rambled off In n diagonal course and
stopped somewhero In a lumber yard
near the lnkc. It was the market for
produce. The sidewalks were jammed
with chicken coops, apple barrels and
flsh stalls. Between this street and
the south branch of the Chicago river
right back of the wigwam the dele
gates and visitors got the benefit of a
combination odor that aroused the sen
sitive olfactories. It Is now recnlled
that It was at this point where one
branch of the grent tire crossed on
Its way to the northeast corner of the
town. The site was forgotten In tho
rebuilding of tho city. A commercial
building was erected on the spot, it
had a spacious front of yellow lime
stone, which in the course of time be
came receptive to the damp atmos
phere and oozed It back until the front
of the building looked like wind and
sun tanned leather. Even Fernando
.Tones shut his eyes when he passed
that way. New Chicago forgot, If It
ever knew, that this was the site of
the wigwam whore Lincoln defeated
William II. Seward for the presiden
tial nomination. Forty-nine years aft

were the queries heard as, for sam

and "How are your gills?"
A veteran Chicago cabman died the
other day. lie was on the stand long

the city. lie had seeu the cable come

wns here when the first automobile ap
pended in the streets. He hnd watched
the evolutions of trnlllc, but still he
took his stand night after -night and
waited for his load. Then he was
missed. Some of his old cronies found
him sick unto'death. He told them
that all he asked

The mourners had taxlcab, the friends

streets In a first class manner, but
when It reached the open the man In

chine, and It came very near breaking
the speed record. The "taxis" und the I
other makes kept up with the proces

cession that was ever seen In this city,
but the friends of the deceased said
It was just what the old cabby would
have had It.
