"Pretty Soft" the Common Thought
When Speaking of Another's Job
Shown, in Timely Article. .
Nearly every man you meet will
give you the impression that he
thinks' the other man has an easier
job. "Pretty soft for him" is a
phrase which ought to be outlawed
from every respectable vocabulary.
If admitted at all. it should always
he under the most careful scrutiny.
The danger of it, as a germ of per
sonal cMscontent and di.-tress, is that
tdie man who use.-, it about another
rarely hears it used concerning him

world, or a class of men. of "whom it

apparently doing nothing. They are
going home at 4::0. lie will b at
his desk until six maybe he will
ejje bacgk in the evening. The men
streaming out of the shops say
"pretty soft for him." And the man
at the"dek may say. "pretty .oft for
them." No douLt both parties could
make out a pretty good case before
any juiy. The men in the shop have
left their work in the shop "pretty
sort for them!" They have nothing
whatever to do with thfir job until
they get. back into the shop next day
"pretty soft for them!" If they
break a machine, t'.uy are not. re
quired to carry it home with them
in the evening and lix it "pretty
suit for them!" They have nothing
whatever to do with making the busi
ness meet between the cost of mater
ial and labor, the difficulty of ship
ments, and all thf rest; all they hav
to do is to do their day's work and
draw their, pay "pretty soft for
The man in the o!"uo ha-n-i any
hours, if he is a responsible man. but
that is no occasion to sing "pretty
soft for him!" because as a uual
thing his hours are too numerous for
any schedule. If his work breaks
down, he take-; it home with him to
f'xe it. He may think he is leaving
it in hi desk, but it is in his head---tha'
is his "shop", by the way- ami
on his pillow. Mi work is not dene

work; the next day and Hie next
month, with their preparations are
always crowding Into today, joggling
yesterday and la.t mouth who have
also come for tneir reparations.
Pretfv soft for hiirt!"
The truth is that everybody who
is connected .witn a serviceable
ness is carrying annul all tne work a
man ought to carry, and or.ie art
necessarily carrying more. The white
collar merely indicates the surround
ings in which a man works, not ihe
degree to which he works. The same
with blue jeans.

Feeling Fine Now. Hiller Says j
Tanlac Has ITo Equal Gains
' For twenty-five years I never
knew what a well day was, bet a
vear and a half ago I began taking
.Tanlac and have enjoyed splendid
: health ever since," was the truly
remarkable statement made by Fred
! C Miller, well known contracting
I painter and paper hanger, living at
71 S J street, who has been a resident
of Lincoln, Nebraska, for forty years.
" finally got so weak and dun
down that I had to lay of? from my
.-. ork for days at a time," said Mr.
Miller, "but Tanlac has put me in
such good shape that I haven't lost
a bit of time since taking it. My ap
petite was very poor and what I did
manage to eat felt heavy in my
stomach and soured, forming gas,
which pressed up around my heart,
keeping me in misery nearly all the
time. I suffered from constipation,
having awful headaches and dizzy at
tacks, which lasted for hours at a
time, and 1 was also troubled with
sever pains in my left side. To cap
it all, I took the painters' colic, and
I just suffered terribly. My nerves
became so unstrung that many nights
I couldn't sleep a wink, and in the
mornings I was so tired out and had
such little energy that I could hardly
get about. I had to live on soups
and other light foods and fell off
until I weighed only one hundred
and thirty-five pounds, and although
I took many different medicines, my
coudition was rapidly becoming
