It is said that a tradesman once advertised for a boy to assist in his shop.
A few hours after the morning paper was circulating his office was thronged with all kinds of boys; and not knowing which to choose, he advertised again, as follows:
"Wanted, to assist in a shop, a boy who obeys his mother."
In response to this, there were only two boys who ventured to apply for the situation. This would still be a good test very likely.
