"I don't mind so much about myself," he added artfully, "but I hate to see him treat you so." Is he not older than you? After the election of November, 1860, events moved swiftly. On the 20th of December, comes the first act of the Civil War, the secession of South Carolina. The secession of Georgia had for a time been delayed by the influence of Alexander H. Stephens who, on the 14th of November, had made a great argument for the maintenance of the union. His chief local opponent at the time was Robert Toombs, the Southern leader who proposed in the near future to "call the roll-call of his slaves on Bunker Hill." Lincoln was still hopeful of saving to the cause of the union the Border States and the more conservative divisions of States, like North Carolina, which had supported the Whig party. "Sam is one of those rare people who knows every janitor by name, passes plates in church, loves tojoin organizations . . . Sam's ability to lead has been the cause of much ribbing.

Really, it includes everything that we supply centrally inthe way of support for the stores. I hope you will, said Roland. "I don't mind so much about myself," he added artfully, "but I hate to see him treat you so." But I want to tell you about a visit I made to a store near Dallas a couple of years ago: store number 880in Irving, Texas. The store has a very young and very ethnic work force and customer base. And ourmanager there was doing a terrible job with his people.
