The Right Thing at All Times

We are exhorted (and, on this lazy evening, somewhat chastised) by the July 26, 1901 Skidmore Standard:

A farmer living near Princeton, this state, threshed 1,103 1/2 bushels of wheat from forty-seven acres.  As an experiment he planted his wheat in two ways, by drill and broad cast.  His drilled wheat averaged twenty-five bushels to the acre and that which was sown broad cast only made ten bushels to the acre.  This goes to show that the farmer that takes pains in putting out his crops is more than doubly paid for his trouble.

And so it is; anything that is worth doing at all is worth doing right.  Never get the idea in your head that you can slight your work – no matter what you may be working at – and get as good results as the man who takes pains and pride in his work.  The employee who tries to do his work right and takes as much pride in it as he would if he was working for himself, never has any trouble in finding work and is much sought after by those wanting work done.  On the other hand, the man that slights his work and always does it in a “don’t care” sort of way, is most invariably out of a job.  It always pays to do the right thing at all times.
