This is a good plan and one which no systematic busi ness man will neglect. If the balance sheet shows a loss he sets about tod is cover if possible on what account, not so much from curiosity as for the purpose of avoiding like misfortune in thejfuture—lie calls it misfortune though others would call it bad judgment in his business trans­ actions. If his balance sheet shows a gain he calls it good judgment in business in­ vestments while others credit it to his good foitune.

Unusual interest is felt in the proceedings of the Session. Hon. William M.

His letter is modest and manly, but the effect of the announce­ ment can scarcely be conjectured at present. Massachusetts has put in operation civil service rules, under a law jttsscil last winter. Applications for govern­ ment situations, to be obtained tinder the rules, will be made at once. Onl} the service of the commonwealth and of the different cities covered by the law.
