THE JOB AHEAD

We hear much to-day about “keeping your eye on the man ahead,” and many young fellows have absorbed that thought. But I think somehow we have failed to impress the boys with the vital need that they prepare for the job ahead. It is not enough to watch the job ahead, nor to want it. We also must be ready to handle it when the opportunity comes our way. I fail to see that spirit about me to-day among the young men in business — they don’t seem to care to devote their evenings to hard study and the thought necessary to digest what they learn and thus get ready for advance. –HUGH CHALMERS
