as they may on their own premises; having investments more or less large and lucrative; conducting or connected with some safe and sure business, with therefore an ample and a comparatively certain income, are removed from the numberless anxieties and annoyances that distract the mind and make miserable the life of their less fortunate or less wisely instructed brethren.

 To show to each individual worker, who is now liable to all the uncertainties and perplexities that belong to a condition where work and wages are largely dependent upon another's will, and where therefore the means of sustaining life are comparatively beyond his control, a way by which he can escape from this thraldom, rise to pecuniary independence, and therefore manhood is one design of this volume.

And in making suggestions, and giving advice with this end in view, the mutual relations of labor and capital, of employer and employee are never lost sight of; the design is to encourage the laboring man to do better work and more of it, to be deserving of the largest wages which his employer can afford to pay; and especially, by a wise texture of his money in the support of himself and family, have some portion of his wages which he can each week or month lay aside, and thus begin an accumulation of property which will be a satisfaction as well as a solace and help in all subsequent time.

 Everyone acquainted with any considerable number of businessmen must have discovered that among individuals engaged in the same vocation, having each the same capital and the same advantages, one is successful and another not; or one is more successful than another, or neither is as successful as he might and should be.

To help the one who has hitherto failed; to enable the medium man to take a higher position, and to give to the thrifty man advice and suggest modes that will enable him the more to outstrip his fellows, is another design of this volume. Unnumbered thousands of young men in this country leave the paternal mansion and go out into the wide world each year. Their future depends in a great degree upon the choice they make of a business. If they are adapted to the one they enter upon if they seek it because after a calm examination of their business tastes and desires they conclude they are fitted for it, and it for them, success is usually the result. But if without knowledge of themselves or the demands of the business in which they embark, failure is almost inevitable.
