Will Esch, post office inspector for this district was here on official business last Tuesday.  This office acknowledges a pleasant call.  He spoke very highly of Mr. Tompkins as post master and is much pleased with the order in which affairs are kept at the office.  He also informed us that Mr. Tompkins haws been recommended to the president for re-appointment.

There can be no greater mistake that a business man can make than to be mean in business. Everybody has herd the proverb of penny wise and pound foolish.  A liberal expenditure in the way of business is always sure to be a capital investment.  There are people in the world who are short-sighted enough to believe that their interest can be best promoted by grasping and clinging to all they can get, and never letting a cent slip through their fingers.  As a general thing it will be found, other things being equal, that he who is most liberal is most successful in business. Of course, we do not mean it to be inferred that a man should be prodigal in his expenditures; but that he show his customers, if he is a trader, or those whom he may be doing any kind of business with, that in all his business transactions, as well as social relations, he acknowledges the everlasting fact that here can be no permanent prosperity or good feeling in a community where benefits are not reciprocal.
