This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1902 edition. Excerpt: ... On the record sheet from the other clock, the full amount of time as shown by the record is extended into the column headed total time. The amount of such time as has been spent on piece-work being ascertained from the factory clerk (as described later) is entered in the piece-work column, and the difference between the two extended into the column for day work.

The door being so arranged that he has to pass the time-keeper's desk to leave the building, he gives his pass to the time-keeper and upon his return reports himself as he passes in. The time he has been out is noted on his pass, and is deducted from the time passed to his credit through the wages book for that day. If he goes out on the firm's business he is given an outward time card indicating the time he leaves the shop, and having the number of the order upon which his work outside is required. This he leaves with the time-keeper. On his return he receives this card, which he returns to his foreman in the usual course. The time-keeper thus has either a pass or an outwork time card in his possession for each workman during absence from the shop.
