NOTICE

To Shop Assistants

STORE MUST OPEN PROMPTLY
at 6.00 a.m. until 9.00 p.m. all the year round.


STORE must be swept, counter, base shelves and showcases dusted. Lamps trimmed, filled and chimney cleaned, pens made, door and windows opened.

A PAIL of water and scuttle of coal must be brought in by each clerk before breakfast, if there is time to do so and attend customers who call.

Any employee who is the habit of
SMOKING SPANISH CIGARS,
GETTING SHAVED AT A BARBER’S SHOP,
GOING TO DANCES, AND OTHER SUCH PLACES OF AMUSEMENT.

will surely give his employer reason to be suspicious of his INTEGRITY and alround HONESTY

Each employee must pay not less than ONE GUINEA per year to the Church and attend Sunday School every Sunday.

MEN are given one evening a week for courting purposes and two if they go to prayer meetings regularly.

After 14 hours works, spare time should be devoted to reading good literature.

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.
