Not enough, huh. So you think you can handle some more? Ok!


Strings And Horse Sense


There is a string to every proposition, and it behooves you to look out for the string before acceding to the requests that are made of you. When a stranger comes and offers to do things for you, to let you in on the ground floor, or assures you that she is working for your interest, you may be sure there is a string to her proposition, and the string is that, as a matter of fact, it is himself instead of you she is looking out for.

Don't bite at the chance that is offered you to get something for nothing. The biggest kind of a string is always in such a proposition. Remember this, that people are selfish. Each man looks out for his own interest, and even if she is protecting your interest, it is because her own interest will be better conserved by looking out for yours.

Don't decide on important matters too quickly. Don't get tied up in big contracts with strangers until you have found every strand of the string. Don’t be too suspicious but hunt for the string. It pays to be very conservative on all matters in which others are interested.

Sometimes the string in the proposition is legitimate and the other woman may be more interested than you are, but it certainly behooves you to see what this string is and to understand exactly where the end of the string is tied.

Don't draw up in your shell and look upon every man with a proposition as trying to take advantage of you, but put down this as a truth --- There is a string to every proposition, and you must find that string before you close the deal.

Knowing to find the string shows horse sense.

Just how the expression horse sense came into use is not known, but the meaning of the combination means good reason, old fashioned logic, simple analysis and actual truth, and the basing of your actions upon simple things rather than complex things.

The woman who uses horse sense in her transactions gets along further and faster than the woman who uses selfishness and meanness. To be possessed of horse sense is a most valuable asset. It is something you can use every day of your life.

Horse sense is really one of the things that makes up the law of compensation. The law of compensation itself is the quintessence of horse sense. Luck is the gambling chance, and horse sense is the investment and security chance. The woman with horse sense may not go as far in a day a the woman with luck but she will progress more days and go further eventually than the lucky woman.

Horse sense is one of the most valuable things in the business world, and it is one of the rarest things. It is so valuable because it is so rare. In the business world today the women who are doing great things are the women who have horse sense. We call these women wonderful and look upon their accomplishments, as the result of some mysterious, wonder-working power that they possess.

Wonder workers are only flashes in the pan. Do not hire your employes on account of your preference for a certain colour hair or certain coloured eyes. Do not hire your employes on account of their physical appearance, or on account of their ability to dress in the height of fashion. Get down to their net worth, find out how much horse sense they have. Hire employes, as far as possible, who are blessed with old fashioned horse sense.

Col. Wm. C. Hunter, Dollars and Sense, 1906, Gender Adjusted: Feminine

Poise, Efficiency, Peace

Thought-habit, will become fixed on Faith or Fear, and the result is good or bad, accordingly.

If your thought is fixed on Faith, in the greater meaning, you are invincible. If it is fixed on Fear, or its elder child, Worry, you stand helpless, weak, conquered and miserable.

If I can, by suggestion, logic, example, proof, reason or humor get your thought habit fixed on Faith, coach you to the understanding that will give you Poise, Efficiency, Peace, then I have done a thing well worth while.

To that end, and with that purpose, I dedicate my services and this book to each of you who read it.
