^EVENING GAZETTE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 2, 1888. Evening Gazette. T K K Jt m jo P tK.| P« BT SATURDAY. JAN. 21. 18RS. MAINE is a rock-bound State and la accordance with the fitness of things • has a Marble governor. THE FREEPORT Journal says: The Democrats always elect Democratic judges in Democratic districts; therefore the Republicans should do the same thing. The editor of this paper has known the editor of the Journal for many years and has heard him say in speeches and has read In his paper that the Democratic party is always wrong and always does wr-ng. Is it not, then, somewhat inconsistent when it insists upon doing what the Democrats do? But wo have not heard that because the election is proposed to be non-partlaan, it should follow that a Democrat must go in. The lawyers of this district stand, politically, about three Republicans to one Democrat. Why, then, the mortal terror of the Journal that a Democrat will be chosen? The district has eschewed politics many years in judicial elections, and no one will deny that we have had excellent judges,—aye, we have, had better ones than in districts where party lines were drawn. The Freeport Journal is on record as supporting nonpartisan candidates for judge; why, now seek to make innovation? The reason that the Democrats draw the will not answer for our friend General Atkins, editor of that paper. His friends know that he goes to the Democrats for nothing. Lst him try some other reason. —A surprise pnrty was mn.ilo upon Miss Annie Wadolton IMt night Dancing was indulged In until 2 o'clock Refreshments were served during the evening arid all had a very pleasant time. —Yesterday Mr. W. A. Sanborn and Mr. II. F. Batcheller drove down to Deer Grove for the purpose of arranging for the building of a bridge across the Winnebagt) near that place. Sup? ervlsors Sanborn and Batcheller met the commissioners of highways at Deer Grove. The township will bear one- half ana the county one-half the expense. THE BALANCE SHEET. v HOW THE BUSINESS MAN FIGURES H13 PROFIT AND LOSS. O, THE forgetfulness of men! Just pay atcention a bit. All of us know in what a tempest the Republicans of this country were over the action of a certain New York delegate fet the Cnicago convention of 1880, which delegate 'was finally the cause of Conkling and Platt's resigning their Beats in the Senate. That man's name was upon every lip at that time. Now how many can recall his name to-day? Also there were two West Virginia delegates who stiir- ed up Mr. Conkling and the convention: who can recall them. They, too, were pets for awhile. Come down later, still. What a wild furore was excited when the words "rum, Romanism and rebel— lion" were flashed over the wires. That was less than lour years ago; yet when two months ago it was told in the papers that Bnrchard had called at the White House and had declared himself a Cleveland man, three-fourths of the people had forgotten his name. If In politics the most exciting of all exciting causes in America, men are so forgetful, by how much -more is this memory treacherous in minor'matters! A merchant will say, "VVhy I advertised four or five months ago. So you want me to advertise all the time V We answer, bleas your heart, good sir, the world forgets In a day. It Is a great surging mass, sweeplng,on, with its eyes to the front, paasiug along to higher points in knowledge, higher places in material prosperity; and they who lag behind, they who fail to attract • attention by some word or act, are forgotten as much as though they had never lived. That is true, alas I too true. . It ft not flattering to a man's vanity to think that bright and glad as is the world and as big a place as be fills in it, when the cry of the mourner is heaid declaring he has gone to his long home, that the world dismiss him with a Poor devil I so he's gone, too," Alasl that it should be so that one must have his horn to his rnouth and must tpot and keep on tooting; for when the noise stops, people look no longer his way. Who asks where now is Conkling, Thurman, Hayes, and le. glens of others who once Oiled so much of the public thought "Out of the way, if you can't keep up." That's the way it works; no question about it. The world" respects 'the pushing man, at heart. It may growl u Hutle and declare him a little too forward, but it Jcno WB that that is. the only way he can keep up with the throng. So, push your business if you are a merchant; your clientage, If attorney; your patients, if physician. Let your friends ingeniously gound your praises now and then, and by all means be as John A. Logan, in one particular, at least,—friendly with the newspapers- He had great respect for the press; particularly the country press It kept him constantly before the peo-' pie and be was grateful. The newspaper goes to every fireside and Is read by everybody. /• Let some comer or part of it have your, name and business in it, not now and then, but every • ' ' —Mra. Eliza J. Alexander's death, the announcement of which was made in yesterday's GAZETTE, and which occurred at noon yesterday, was not unexpected, as she had been 111 a year and a half. She removed west with her husband and children in March 18S3, and had resided in this neighborhood continuously ever since. Her husband died in 1807, and since that time she had resided with Mrs. L. A. Metzer, at whose house she died, and where the funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon at l:SO"6'cIock7Rev.~~ jrT7"Ma^ son, her old pastor, offl bating. She was 76 years old and her long life was one of Christian piety, she being a member of the Baptist church. She was a good and kind neighbor, a faithful wife, a devoted mother. She lived to see her children grow up and nettle in life and she passed away in the ful- ness of years quietly and In the assurance of the Christian faith. —A tramp yesterday took a 810 coat from a dummy in front of Isaac Wolfs, leaving his old ragged garment in It's place. Later Mr. Wolf found the individual In a saloon, and after some argreement prevailed upon him to surrender the coat. Later the tramp came around and was insolent to Mr. Wolf. He and his partner, whom he had previously charged with having purloined the coat, were then arrested and placed in the cooler for the night by Marshal Fitzgerald. These two' chaps made an abortlvejattempt during the afternoon to steal a string of gloves and mittens Irom in front of Gerdes store. They were brought before Justice Wolfersperger this morning and there gave their names as George and John Sullivan, of Clinton, and declared they were druuk yesterday and hence were not accountable for their conduct. The justice did not regard that as a good excuse. They were held in 8200 bonds, being unable to give wliichjthejL were taken to Morrison jail, to remain until the February term of court. —The accident to Mr. Jonas Baer, supervisor of Jordan township, was more S'Tious than was stated in yesterday's GAZETTE. He was engaged in feeding a corn-stalk cutter yesterday afternoon aboat two o'clock, whfen his hand was dragged in, his fingers so badly mutilated that Dr. Frank Anthony, who was called in, found it necessary to amputate the four fingers (of hl» right hand) above the knuckles aud his entire thumb. This is a severe calamity, indeed, to Mr. Baer, and the GAZETTE deeply sympathizes with him in his affliction. It comes the harder upon him in that he is an industrious man, who takes pleasure in doing farm work, and the loss of so great part of his hand will of course seriously interfere with the usefulness of that member in the future. Mr. Baer is the worthy sou of a worthy father and his many, friends will deep ly regret that he should have had this accident befall him. • Dr. Anthony was assisted by Dr. Paul, of Penrose, in thaamputation of the fingers and thumb. In order to better understand the extent of Mr. Baer's misfortune, we would add that not only were the fingers and thumb taken off,, but also the heads of the —A young man of this city who is troubled with cold feet or chilblains, has resorted to a novel, yet simple de- rice, for keeping his feet warm.

The ground white everywhere; here and there a mass of ice sclnlilla- ting, or massive pendant icicles flashing back the splendors of the moonbeams. Jingling bells and merry voices are heard and'ever and anon, a sleigh passes, the horses tossing their heads and champing their bits, apparently enjoying the sport as much as the crowd of girls and Doys they are drawing behind them. Houses and trees stand out in bold relief. The air is sharp, but one is well wrapped, and besides, it is bracing and invigorating- The beaten driveway is outlined, the lighter snow bounding it on either side. Now and then one encounters a long drift, when horses tread more carefully while hands are outstretched, but well mittened, to grasp a >bit of the piled up crystals. Lights flash from windows; 'dogs bay and occsion- ally chantiecleer blows his horn Oue forgets the garish glare of the noonday sun, the terrible stories of frozen bodies^ the tales of pinched want and starving children of men; he forgets the nearly tropical splendor of our midsummer, weather and mocks the man who seeks the milder breaths of Southern lands.

Gains and Ixwem—Auwt*. Most business men keep their affain well enough In hand to be able to tel! at any time about, v?hat they are doing, but they all depend upon the balance sheet at tb» close of tbc year to show the exact condition of tho business. Indeed, ther« Is no other means of ascertaining It, for even the most careful estimates ma<lo during the year are often misleading, particularly where the Intercata are larea and the details varied. But is tho balance sheet, and hotr does it show the merchant what ha ha» made or lost? The question la not untimely, for every properly conducted business honse In the country is now gelling things In flhapo for th« preparation of this important statement. A brief and simple explanation of It and the proper method of making it may be of Interest to those who have no knowledge of accounts, and even those who havu such knowledge may find R suggestion hero and there which can be turned to advantage. MEAMXO OF "TAK1NO STOCK." A prime condition of the balance sheet Is to know exactly the valne of the goods on hand on the last day ot the year. This is found onl by "taking stock," aa the merchants call it, that la to Bay, a complete inventory Is made of all tho goods In stock at the prices paid for them when purchased, or at their present market prices if there Has been any change. For example, a lot of goods that cost $3,000 three months ago may be worth $3,500 today; If so, they should be inventorlbd at the latter price, and the appreciated value is ns legitimate a profit to the merchant as If he hud sold them at that figure. On the contrary, if they have depreciated in value, the depreciation would be a loss The entire stock, then, must bo taken at Its present market value. In the meantime the bookkeeper has been getting his booka in shnpo. lie carries into the ledger every Item from the original books of entry and then takes off a "trial balance" to see whether his work haa been correctly done. By the double entry system of bookkeeping, the only correct method, the sum. of the debits must equal Jhe sum of the credits, and the trial balance is made out to prove this. He goes through the ledger and finds the difference between the debit and credit side of every account, and having mode a complete list of the accounts he seta down opposite to each one Ita balance as shown by the ledger, putting tho debits in one column and the credits in another. If tho work has been correctly done these columns will agree exactly; If they do not agree there are errors which must be found before further progress can be made. OUOSS OADT8 OB- LOSSES. The work having been, .verified the noit step 13 to find out the gross pains or losses, lucre is nn account on every ledger generally called "merchandise," which represents tho commodity or goods dealt in All goods purchased are chained to this account, and goods sold are credited to it As its debit side shows the amount of money paid for the goods and Ita credit side the amount received for what has been sold, it is evident that the gains or losses can bo ascertained by adding the stock on hand to the credit side and then taking^the difference between the two. if the balance is on the credit side' there is a gain; if on the debit side there is a loss. The bookkeeper, therefore, enters directly on the credit side of merchandise account in tho ledger the amount of the' goods on hand. If there is a credit balance he carries 'It to tho credit of profit and loss; if a debit balance, he carries it to debit of profit and loss. But as he entered tho stock qn hand to the credit of merchandise directly on tho face of the ledger, he must bring the same amount down on the debit side of that account as the stack with which tho new year starts. Having reached this point in his work he has only to charge up to profit and loss the various expense accounts to ascertain the net gain or loss, and he is then ready to make out the balance sheet The following will be tho form if a gain has been' made: Merchandise credit and «ock on hand; from tho sum of these subtract the merchandise debits—the differences will represent the gross gains; tho various expense accounts, the sum of them to be subtracted from the gross gains-the re» au lder will show the not gains. Then should follow a statement of the assets and liabilities, the former consisting of ciig i on hand, stock on band and the notes Hud accounts owing by others. The excess of the assets over the liabilities will be the amount of the net gains.- If a loss has ™'° mfl d e ' h ° Blanco 8he«t is draw ° np substantially the same way, the only difference being a change in the order of setting down the Items. In thla case the liabilities will exceed the assets by th^ amount of the net loss. «t7 h ? b , a !?' 1C , e 1 heet> then > * Blm Ply an abstract of the ledger accounts, showing in a condensed form the condition of the busl- ' BOC1FTIEW TO-XIIJHT.
