St. Louis, Feb. 13. I met hero tlio

thrown light on tlio methods of em
ployem mid tlio salaries imiil to clerks,
and I heliovo will iipjieal to tlmt largo
and growing class of young men who
nro cither earning their own living or
about to start out for themselves, warn
ing them, perhaps, to let well enough
alone. 1 glvo the Btory In tlio young
man'fl own words as nearly as I can re
"I am 31 , care old," said lie. "In 1880
I was employed In an insurance ofllcc in
this tow n, vviioro I had then lieen for
two years, having started as a boy on a
small salary. I am a graduato of tlio
St. Louis university, and at that tltno
was a good stenographer, running off
about liSO words a minute. I also wroto
on tho typewriter alout eighty words a
minute, frequently taking letters from
dictation on tlio machine. I was head
clerk in tho ofllco and my salary waa
$75 a month, lint 1 got dissatisfied
thought I ought to bo getting on faster
and I kicked. I told my employer that
something must be dono. Tho fact Is, I
got tho big head. I thought ho couldn't
get along without me. Just about this
tlmo I got an offer from another otllco to
travel, and that settled it. I left my
placo and went out on tho road,
"I was away four months and traveled
all through tho southwest. Then I was
recalled. My work wan of a special nat
ure and required no extraordinary abil
ity. When it was finished of course
thcro was nothing more for mo to do but
to leave. This didn't occur to mo when
I left my former placo, and I lxgim to
realize that I had thrown up a good
thing for an uncertainty. Well, I hadn't
been back three days before I heard that
a largo wholesale bouse wanted a sten
ographer. I went down and saw ono of
tho firm. Ho was a perfect Chesterfield.
Shook hands, was glad to see mo, said
ho know I was just the man thoy had
been looking for, but his partner was
away in Chicago and, of course, ho
wouldn't like to engago mo positively
until that individual got back. Hut I
would bo sure to hear from them. Then
I went homo and held down chairs for a
few days until I got a letter. I was en
gaged. Salary 75 a month. I was
as happy as a clam at high tide. Tho
next morning I showed up bright mid
early and worked like a horso all day
"Everything was lovely in tho morn
ing, hut in tho afternoon a cloud ap
peared on my horion. The manager,
who had been t.o pleasant when he saw
mo first, began to curse me. 01 eouibo I
resented it. I told him politely that I
was willing to do anything I was told to
do, but I didn't propose to bo sworn at by
any man. Ho quieted down after this,
and things went along until 0 o'clock,
When I was told that the woik was a littlo
behind and it would bo necessary for mo
to put in a few nights. I said I waa jor
fectly willing, went out, paid for my own
supper and camo back and worked until
HiidnighL For threo days and nights I
kept this up. I never worked so hard in
my life. Well, sir, will you believe mo,
when Saturday came tho manager culled
mo into his oillceand said they would not
require my services any longer. Maybo
I didn't boil. I raved. Thero w ero a lot
of clerks there, am some of them Uld mo
afterward they never saw such nervo aa
I displayed. They themselves had been
under subjection for sonio time, and of
course were beared to death.
"Tho reason given for my dibchargo
was that my survices were not satisfac
tory, but that didn't go down with me.
It waa a week, however, before I found
out what was the matter. Then I learned
tlmt my predecessor waa a girl who had
been paid $J5 a month. Tho man I saw
decided to engago mo at $75, not waiting
for his partner to return from Chicago.
Saturday his partner got back, and vvjien
ho heard the news thero waa a cyclone.
Aa ho ruled tho placo of course I waa
"Then I loafed for a spell. Laid around
homo and waited for developments.
Looked through tho advertising columns
of tho papers every day for about two
months. Ono day I baw that a largo car
riage house wanted a stenographer. My
application was answered, and I appeared
ono morning to bo tested. My future
employer, after ho had dictated sonio
few minutes, expressed himself delight
ed with mo.
"no was a tall man with flowing side
whiskers, and would havo graced any
draw ing room. 'Young man,' wild he,
'thcio's a great future for you in this
business. Wo not only want a man to
write shorthand, but wo shall exjiect you,
sir, to acquire tho details of the business;
to become familiar with tho various kinds
ot vehicles, sir, and to know their prices.
Young man, I have no hesitation in sav
ing to j on that if jou succeed in niaotei
ing this business and I have no doubt of
your ability a fortune awaits jou, Alter
you havo been hero sonio little time I
shall ask jou to wait una few cintounra.
That, sir, will bo tlio beginning. Event
ually you will bo given a commission,
aful I havo no doubt that you will make
a complete success.'
"I was entranced. Tho long flowing f
wniuueia ot my unliable employer Heated
through my hr.iin all night. The next
morning I appeared on tho scene and put
In my beat licks for the lest of tho week.
My salary was to have been 75 a month,
but I was told that it would bo increased
to $20 a w eek.

seemed like a dream. I stayed in my
