Plough deep while sluggards sleep.
        Benjamin Franklin.—Poor Richard.
Wherever a ship ploughs the sea, or a plough furrows the field; wherever a mine yields its treasure; wherever a ship or a railroad train carries freights to market; wherever the smoke of the furnace rises, or the clang of the loom resounds; even in the lonely garret where the seamstress plies her busy needle,—there is industry.
        James A. Garfield.—House of Representatives, April 1, 1870.
