First of all, be honest and willing to work. Truth is an asset, a lie is a liability. Sound credit is the best capital a young man can have. Begin at the bottom and work up. The business that begins small and grows is much safer than the business that begins big. In hiring men for his store Marshall Field much preferred the school graduate aged IS over the university graduate aged 22. The boy of IS will do thjngs as you want them done. The man of 22 has ideas of his own. Aim high for the guns we use in youth, we find in old age, has.hit away below the mark we shot at. Riches do not mean much one way or the other, but leading a right life does. It is better to be known as an honest old man than as a rich rascal. All this lingo may not do any good, for in the inevitable order of the fitness of things old age can not tell youth what to do. One thing I am asking you to do for sure is continue buying your shoes at Neville's and teach your children to do the same. You get the same shoes for less money.
