was enough in this to warn him what had

not go to impure.

feared, might throw some light on his

pulling it as low as he could over his ashy
face, proceeded to Charing Cross station,
and buying a paper, carried it to the farthest end of the platform, over the enbank-
mert, before he opened it.
The Baring headlines made him stagger

announced an "Alleged Child Murder ill

"Oh, it's you, Mr, Clove?'' he observed.

"1 sometimes stay here for the night

Bulbous; and then he sat down and looked
at the solicitor,
" I have been to Chelsea. The doctor

" No," said Matthew, wincing. " I know
nothing about the man."
" I'm very glad of that. It is one danger

" Well t" inquired Bulbous, after a pause.
His face, stiffening in rigid, desperateines,

CHAPTER IV.-Tue J).iv or Wkatii.
Lord Polonius was, from his own point of
view, quite as interested in the marriage of
his daughter to James Bulbous as thelatter's
father. .Matthew had shown himself very
liberal upon the matter of settlements; the
sale of the family estate would be disguised
by the assumption of the family name by his
daughter's husband and the descent of the
estate to her issue; and the prospect of having two voles in the House of Commons
and a wealthy family connection, involved
in a ma'.ler the rehabilitation of a very dilapidated nobleman.
Matthew Bulbous was aware of all this,
but regarded the whole matter as one of
business in which there must lie advantages
on both sides, and he was satisfied with the
bargain. Knowing the views of Lord
Polonius, therefore, it was no matter of
surprise to him to receive a letter from that
nobleman the morning after the occunences
related in the last chapter, hinting that if
Mr. James Bulbous returned to England
now there would be no insuperable difficulties in lhe way of the early realization of
their mutual wishes.
The letter came al an opportune moment,
when the only obstacle to the marriage had
just been removed; and Matthew Bulbous
was able to regard the situation now with
satisfaction, He shook off the disordered
feeling which had kept him from his bed all
niglit, and astonished his wife at breakfast by telling her that her son was coming home, ami that, his room must he aired
and got ready for him.
Her request that he would unlock the
doororleave the key, reminded him that
the room was still locked up. Taking the
key from a drawer in his study he went
thoughtfully up thc stairs, to see if by
chance any memorial of the dead wife
should be lying about the room. He found
it just as he left it. The photograghs
still lay on the table, oovered with dust.
One hy me he picked them up again,
and wondered if any of them represented
the deceased woman. He concluded it would
be best to burn them; and collecting them
in his Lands, he bore them down lo the study
and east them on the lire. There was one
whioh chanced tol urn face upwards, and recognizing it, he snatched it away before the
fire caught it. The expression of astonishment and relief which filled his face as he
looked ai it again was remarkable. He remembered holding it in bis hand the day
he locked up the room, .md it was marvellous to think that, after seeing it only once,
the face should have so fixed itself upon his
memory.   The dark eyes and pretty face!, . ,,   .,- ,���       .-   .��� ,    ,   ,
-here,'in truth, was" the phantom which I successfully, Mr, Clove, tt will be the best
bad been haunting his disordered bram- P**f*��f w',',rK "r yourself that you ever
the face he had recognized, without seeing ; onc'
it, in his sleeping vision on Christmas eve
the others might he ; he was himself certainly one, and the one in the worst plight,
for it was he who was responsible for the
victim whose death caused all the trouble.
Others might be exposed and disgraced;
but he, Matthew Bulbous, would to a certainty fare worse. There were the consequential penalties, too, often far heavier
than the penalties of the law, and al ays
more certain, There was the ruin of all his
schemes, of his business, of his position in
the world, of his character. His son would
despise and repudiate him, his friends would
drop him, his clerks would laugh at him,
his enemies���ho was conscious of having a
good many���would exult over him. There
was not one who would regret him,
Yes���there were two ; he knew it now,
with a pang ; two despised and neglected
women who would cling tohim all the more.
But of all the world there was no person's
altitude which would cut him to the quick
like the cool and deadly hauteur with which
Lord Polonius would drop him, comforted
by the possession often thousand pounds of
his money. He had already felt the sting
of being beaten by the wily old peer, but it
was far worse now. Oh, how the misfortunes of Matthew Bulbous would have been
lightened had it been possible to associate
Lord Polonius with the disgrace ! But the
Earl had been too many for him.
With an ashy face and a heart that quaked at the sight of every policeman, Matthew
walked to the cab-rank and jumped into a
hansom, giving the man an address. In the |
course of his business Matthew Bulbous
came in contact with professional men of
shady oharaoter and sharp wit, useful in
certain lines of work, and one of these he
now thought ol as best qualified to help
him. He found the lawyer, and with business-like direotnes slaid the case betore him.
" It's ugly, Mr. Bullions," said the law-
yer. whose name was Mr. Clove���"it's undeniably ugly. But isn't it just possible
you may he exaggerating the danger''"
" I am exaggerating nothing," replied
Bulbous impatiently. "But we must be
prepared to meet the worst. "It the worst
does not come, so much the better; but we
must be ready.
"Very well. I'll do what I can. Firs'.
of all, give me your brother's address."
" Helms cleared out.'1
Mr. Clove's face lengthened. "That is
unfortunate," he observed. " It would have
been better in every way for you ii he had
stood his ground, I may spend money, I
suppose, m case it should be necessar*, ,'r'
"As much as you want. ���I will only
add," said Matthew Bulbous as he took his
'nit, "that  if you  manage  this business
and which he had fancied beneath theheavj
veil beside his son in the mourning carriage.
"There's no accounting for these tricks!"
was his relieved teflection M he tossed the
photograph contemptuously into thi
and wai, hod it burn to ashes.
This incident, connected with tl
of Lord Polonius's letter, put Matthew into
high spirits as he proceeded to London, He
looked upon hi�� worries ae practically
and as Boon as his son returned to Eng in

" There is none, Mr. Bulbous. We must

best we can. I want you to have a very
clear reflection of your transactions with
that woman. There was no witness, and no
written agreement���so lar so good. You
paid her the guarantee of fifty pounds"���
Mr. Bulbous made a grimace���" in advance.
In what form did you give her the money ?"
" Cash- gold."
" ^'ery good. There is, then, no evidence
if that transaction. And the assistant kept

Finally, you had no communication with the
"I had!" said Bulbous, with a sudden
stop which the lawyer understood asasilent
malediction. " The fellow sent me a certificate yesterday, and he had a cheque for it."
Mr. Clove started, and after a moment
rose and walked twice the length of the
room. His looks showed what he thought
of this part of the case. " Then the police
have possession of your check, as surely as
the sun shines at noonday. The doctor had
not yet left his bed, after a debauch the
night before, when they arrested him. That
cheque, I fear, will put them ou your track."
Matthew Bulbous, with silent curses,
thought also of the two telegrams from his
brother. He told Clove about them, and
Clove was ready lo curse likewise.
"Do you know," Matthew asked, with
dread, " whether the police are���are looking for me?"
" Why, no. If they were, of course they
would quickly find you. The warrant will
not be issued before to-morrow ; very likely
when the coroner lias received some evidence���that is, in all probability," said Mr.
" Will they want me at the inquest?"
" I tliink not. I am afraid your attendance will be required in���ahem ; in another place, Mr. Bulbous, iu a different
capacity," said Mr. Clove, with professional
delicacy. " Your best course, meantime,
will be to say nothing to anybody, We
must simply wait and watch events, and
take advantage of every point that presents
itself in our favour. Silence at present is
our only strength.
After the lawyer left him, Mr. Bulbous
lay down again on the sofa, face upwards.
The woman came by-and-by and removed
the things from the table, leaving the
whisky and the water, and placing a box of
cigars beside them. Later on she came
again with coffee, glancing nervously at
the still and sileut object on the
sofa. The coffee became cold, the clock on
the mantel-piece struck hour after hour, and
he did not move. At ten she came again,
and left his chamber candlestick, asking
timidly if he should want anything more.
There was no answer; and the woman,
half-frightened, quickly retreated to the

suddenly halted and glanced at him with a
manner of mingled curiosity and compassion. For he looked like a man lately
brought down to the level of those who
haunt the bridges at midnight. He resented the woman's observation, and as he turned his back to her she passed on.
A battle of all his forces of brain and
character against this miserable result of
his own folly had beeu silently raging for
hours. Al last he gave in���acknowledged
himself beaten. But the spirit which had
worked his success in the world and built
his character revolted against submitting to
the impending disgrace. He wished that,
like the Hebrew giant, he could pull down
all his enemies and rivals amongst the ruins
of his own career. At least he could deprive them ol the spectacle of his fall.
The tide he stared down at, from the
bridge, rushing to its end swift and dark
and defiled, was fit emblem of his life, his
ruined career. They were so like, the two

There was a sudden sound iu the midnight
air wh.cligave him a stall. " Big Ben " was
chiming the hour from the high tower of
Westminster Palace, Matthew Bullions
listened under a hypnotic spoil, What was
it that he heard': The sell-same message
lhat he had listened to with exultation of

Matthew Bulbous was roughly roused from
a dangerous mood by a passing policeman,
" Move on, my mail. This is no place for

Fancy Matthew Bulbous having to slink
away, with the constable slowly following,
and the constable's eye watching his every
movement, until he disappeared up Parliament Street. Thc mental paroxysm���which
had nearly closed on a tragedy���had passed,
and the outer forces were at work again us
he strode fiercely towards Charing Cross. It
was well for Joseph Bulbous that he war out

A Wish.
Whon nngol censers softly glean).
Tbeir snored smokes waft through the skies;
Still dinging lo a parting dream,
Morn slowly ope's ber heavy eyes.
The naughty sunbeams steal from home,
Nor oare they now for skies of blue,
Through Holds of drowsy llowers thoy roam
To sip a breakfast of their dew.
So when lhe morn of life is done
It steals tho joys of childhood dear,
Still life is bright 'neatb noonday Bun,
And fate untarnished with a tear.
When skies arc hid 'nealh Old Sol's gleams
And budsnf Earth burst forth in bloom,
Like diamonds sparkle biimbleststreams,
Beneath tbo glare of brilliant noon.
Then Cupid, harbinger of fate,
Gives iife a charm stole from above;
And nil thodoublsol voiilh abate
Calmed by the bliss of trusted love.
The noon of life-ah, may it give
A gleam to guide thy life aright;
Whioh will the darkest hour out live,
And lend a brightness to lhe night.
When twilight coverings softly spread
About the couch where Nature rests.
And weary Earth throws back her head
To sleep on Evening's saving breast.
And t ben to chant a vospcr hymn,
The birds their joyous travalllngs cease;
When all is bushed night softly comes,
Wrapped In her sombre robe of peace.
When years have passed -thy day is dono,
And twilight shades about thee close,
May Evening's angel gently come
And bear th) soul to sweet reposo.

���leiliiiil or Electing ike Speaker   of lhc
House or < ni mi*.
The election of .Speaker is rather an interesting ceremony. Tlie member proposed
remains seated in the body of the House
until the vote is declared, when, after the
leaders of all the political parties have
eulogised his character and expressed their
desire to support his authority, he proceeds
to the steps of the chair and submits himself to the House, begging them to consider
well their choice before deciding. No dissentient voice being heard, he accepts the
ollice and seats himseli in tlie chair amid
plaudits from all sides.
Some nominal business having been done,
a short recess follows, after which the
Speaker-elect reappears in court dress,
black cloth coat, with lace frill and braided
buttons, black kerseymere breeches, black
silk stockings, shoes with silver buckles,
and over all a richly braided black silk
gown with a long train, and a full-bottomed
curled white wig falling on his shoulders,
He is preceded by the sergeant-at-iirnis, in
full court dress and sword, bearing lhc gold
mace, ami followed by a retinue of ushers
and other oliicials,
In the meantime word has been sent to
the Queen of the election, and a few minutes Intern royal messenger arrives conveying Her Majesty's pleasure that her "faithful Commons" would present their Speaker
to her at a certain date ami hour.
When the time comes the Speaker and his
olliccrs drive in state to the palace, followod
by his proposer and seconder and as many
other members as choose to go. The party
are ushered into the Queen's presence and
the Speaker, kneeling, claims for tlie House
of Commons a renewal of their anciont
privileges and for himself free access to lho
sovereign and all rightful favors. The
Jucen greets him graciously congratulates
the members on their choice, promises to up-
bold and defend their rights, and dismisses
them to theirs, labor.
Thenceforward the Speaker ceases to belong lo any political party or to take any
part in debates or divisions, unless lo exercise a casting vole, which he always gives
on that side which allows of further consideration of the question. His duty is to pro-
side over the proceedings of the House and
to decide ou all questions of order or procedure, and his authority in every case is
Of lato years, his personal power and
responsibility have been vastly increased
by the rules of " closure," which require
him to use his discretion in cutting short
debate when willful obstruction takes
place. He has the power lo suspend
members, or even to commit them to prison
for gross misconduct, and his warrant is all
powerful for the punishment of persons
found guilty of contempt of the House-
On the other hand, lie himself is exempt
from arrest, or any other legal process for
acts done in his ollicial capacity. At any
time he chooses to retire from the Speakership, or fails to secure re-election, ho receives a peerage with hereditary descent to
his heirs male.
The Speaker receives a salary of $26,000
a year, and a retiring pension ol $12,500 for
lite ; aud he has the control of patronage
and expenditures, independently of the
Government, amounting to Sl.r)0,0l)l) a year.
He has a very handsome residence and suite
of'offices at the House of Commons, and his
ollicial dinners and other entertainments are
among the choicest festivities of London
He goes in procession with his sergeant,

prayers, read and open the proceedings���a

Women Ohoristers in Voeue.
Tlie honorable order of deaconesses has
been revived in the nielhodist church, in
which women more nearly share spiritual
dignities with men than in any other of tlie
prolestant denominations, lu the respect
of possessing an active feminine clement for
parochial labors the episcopal church follows
close upon the liberal minded mcthodist;
for not only, liko the methodist, does the
episcopal church encourage the formation of
countless charitable organizations of ladies,
but latterly the tide of prejudice has sot in
favor not only of the minister's sharing certain actual pulpit duties with devoted lady
parishioners, but also of the appointment
of women to important uniform service.
Quietly have the more broad-minded rectors
turned their attention to the formation of
choral classes drawn from the feminine ole-

A Little Girl's Sewing.
The baby of two years will beg for a
needle to sew, and, in her small ro-king-
chair, work industriously at nothing at all
for many minutes, but when three or four
years of age, can, with timo and patience,
be taught to wear a thimble, thread a needle,
and make a garment for a tiny doll, one of
those that is completed when two inches of
running up the back, six inches of hemming around the bottom, a draw string
around the neck and two holes for the arms
completes the dress, and from this on to big
dresses for big dolls, which cover, when
neatly made, all tho ground gone over on a
larger scale on a frock for herself, and then
to the machine, where her own skirts and
aprons can be so quickly put together, is all
within the range of pleasant possibilities.
The Done die Monthly thinks stocking-darning must be beguiled with story-telling, and
some sugary reward, but should be among
the first lessons in repairing taught, and
that seven years is not too early for a girl to
begin this part of her education, only she
should not be comforted at the outset with
some old stocking gaping with rents, but
rather a pair with just the tiniest hole making ilself seen ; then it will not be long he-
fore the mother can say, "There, your stockings are mended, and you can run and
play," and with a cent to spend or a cream-
drop or caramel as a prize, there will nothing unpleasant be connected with darning
stockings, and it is strange that it should
be mostly regarded as a disagreeable, if not
a baleful task. In connection with the
darning, teach the daughter to leave off
stockings as soon as they begin to show
white patches, through tho inky line now
fashionable, for small holes are not so tiresome to fill up as some great rent in the
heel or knee.
The sewing on of shoe-buttons is also
something that should come under the
daughter's care at an early age, and she
should be taught that a button off her shoe
is a mark of great carelessness and untidiness, and it is more than likely that stockings can he darned, shoe-bottons sewed on,
and other repairs made in the early hours of
Saturday morning, and in no wise interfere
v ith the hours for play, and if this is begun
right after breakfast, in winter or summer,
before noon there is a restless, uneasy set
of children in the house or garden, teasing
one another, and asking more than once,
" What can i do now, mamma ?" while if a
little time lias been spent in useful occupation, many things will suggest themselves
for the hours of recreation.
Up Stairs and Down.
The bureau should he so placed, if possible, that the light of the mirror will come
from the side.
Well-dried, clear corn husks make a very
good, wholesome bed, the best bed next to
wool or hair. But they are altogether too
hard for pillows.
For removing the stain of perspiration
from underwear, apply a pretty strong solution of soda and then rinse repeatedly
with clear, clean water.
When you mend the socket on a lamp
fill the sides of the socket with plaster of
pans and press the reservoir in place. Rub
off any plaster of paris that may overflow
before it dries.
Don't try to keep a kitchen table white
for it's too hard work, but cover that as well
as the shelves most in use with oilcloth. It
is cheap, looks well and is a great time and
labor saving material.
The condition of the cellar is far more
import nt than that of the parlor. In light
rooms dirt is comparatively harmless. In
dark places it is a lurking danger. No old
wood, no vegetable, no rubbish of any kind,
should ho allowed to cumber the cellar.
If there are no drawers for holding the
surplus stock of dish towels, holders, cleaning cloths, etc., which should always bo in
readiness, get a wooden box high enough to
make a comfortable seat; hang the cover on
binges, pud the top of it and cover it with
blue denim, and thus you have a receptacle
for liolilin-. tho towels.
It is very convenient to have a litlle chinii
anient to mend china or glassware. Although no cement has ever been invented
which will suoee.-sfully stand boiling water,
yet a piece of china which is intended for
decorative use, and not for hard service in
the kitchen, whero it will be frequently
washed, will be as good as new when ii is
once mended.
A poek or more of lime left in a cellar in an
x-pen keg will absorb an immense amount of
moisture, which otherwise might form in
mould ou tho walls. Northing is more
dangerous to the health of the occupants of
a houso than a mouldy cellar; yet people
occasionally live for years in such a house
and escape the danger, and then possibly
succumb to it finally when one would least
expect it.
Few things are more slovenly than a wa
with holes in tho plaster, yet such disfigure
monts aro likely to occur from tho blows of
heavy furniture, hammering of picture nails

Cooking Receipts.
Havana Soup,���Grate on* cocoanut and
simmer it in one quart veal stock for half an
hour. (Veal stock is made by simmering
two pounds of veal bones in two quarts of

or milk to it, add a bit of butler the size of
an egg, dredge in a large teaspoonful of
flour, or work il with the butter; season
with pepper and salt, let it simmer gently
for half an hour, serve hot, A bunch of
parsley cut small and put with it is an improvement.
Stewed Lobsters.���Two medium lobsters, one pint of milk, two tablespoons butter, two tablespoons llour, one-half teaspoon
salt, one-halt saltspoon cayenne, one-half
lemon, or two tablespoons vinegar. Open
the lobsters and cut the meat in small
pieces. Boil the milk, melt the butter, add

The following recent occurrence is another
instance of the wonderful endurance, sagacity, and fidelity so often displayed by that
noble animal the dog.   The master of the
 , jf Glasgow, is the owner of a big,
handsome, brown retriever called Nero.
Nero is a general favourite with the ship's
crew, and is in most respects a well-behaved
dog. He has his faults, of course ; but what
dog has not ? Let him get hold of a bone or
a piece of wood, and possession at once becomes with him, not nine-tenths, bnt ten-
tenths of the law. No amount of coaxing or
cajoling will wheedle him out of it. Neither
'rats"nor "cats," nor any other call so
exciting to canine ears, has any effect on
him. Nothing will induce him to give it up,
until he consents to do so of his own sweet
will. Asa watch dog he "can't be beat."
He generally makes the wheel-house his
head-quarters during the night, and woe betide the stranger that would dare enter that
place unaccompanied by a member of the
crew while Nero is there. His shins would
soon become acquainted with the sharpness
of Nero's teeth and the strength of Nero's
jaws. He might with as much safety beard
the lion in his den as Nero in his wheel-
house. One very sensible trait in his
character is his extreme aveision to being
tormented or "bothered" in any wa;-.
A gentleman (?) a few days since tried this
game on with him, with theresulttliat,sinart-
ing under this undue provocation, Nero lost
his temper and he bit his tormentor's hand
rather severely. For this vicious display of
temper poor Nero was condemned to die.
A short time after this mishap the ship left
Glasgow for Plymouth, and when passing
Pentic Point, near that famous seaport, with
a "Yo-heave-ho," poor Nero was tossed
overboard. He at first struck out bravely
after the ship, but being no match for 75
horse-power, he was soon left far behind to
his fate. This was on Saturday morning
last week. .All on board regretted poor
Nero's loss, and not one entertained the
slightest idea of ever seeing him again.
What was, therefore, their surprise as much
as delight when on Sunday niglit the news ^'j

Who HutncdHimself lor thc Cause,
The New and Latter House of Israel was
not founded by " Prince " Michael, as many
suppose, but was originated by James
White, a private soldier in the English army
in India. He had little or no education,
and was notorious for his immoralities, but
he was imaginative, shrewd and plausible.
In India he fell in with a number of fanatical native fakirs and dervishes whose mysticism and jugglery fascinated him, and ho
soon became an adept in it. He obtained
copies if some of the writings of Johanna
Southcotc and John Wroe, the famous
" false prophets" who created like sensations in England. From them, with the
aid of the takirs, he compiled an outlandish book which he called the "Plying Moll," which lie intended should
be the bible of a now religion. When
bis term of service expired, lie returned
to England and told the disciples of
John Wroe that he was their leader risen
from the dead, and sent by Heaven to be
thoir spiritual head again. They rejected
him with contempt, but, nothing daunted,
be presented himself to the disciples of Johanna ^oiithcole and told them that he was
her spiritual son. They promptly accepted
him as such, and made him their prophet
and ruler. His questionable practices soon
aroused their suspicions, however, and, his
autocratic air exasperating them, they drove
him on:. He was followed by 20 or SO, and
with these, he founded what he called the
"New and Latter House of Israel." He
then made wholesale additions to the "Boll,"
saying that the spirit, of Jeremiah appeared
to him and showed him his command as
written in Jeremiah xxxvi., !>S: "Take
thee again another roll and write in it all
the former words that were in the first
roll, which Jehoakini, lhe king of
Judah, hath burned." He also renamed
himself James Jershon Jezreel. He now
claimed to he a trinity, and that his
initials "J. J. J." signified that he embodied in himself three persons, John
Wroe,   Johanna   Southeote,   and   James

this age. But this one was as shrewd as
she was pretty. She made him marry her,
not according to the ritual he had made, but
according to the laws of England. Then
she made herself as completely his ruler as
he Was over the community. Esiher Jezreel
was the name she took, and she called herself " the servant of the House of Israel";
she held herself entirely aloof from the rest,
to whom she was known as " Queen Esther."
About 12 or 13 years ago these two made a
lour through Canada and the United States.
Among the places visited by them was Toronto, but, as far as can be learned, they
made but few converts, although in other
parts of tbe continent they acquired a large
following. Jezreel was then a fine looking
inan,talland wellproportioned,with his hair
falling over his shoulders and his beard
reaching to his waist. He was a singularly
effective speaker, always talking as though
in a trance or a frenzy, with his eyes seeming to start from their sockets. The pair
went from here to Detroit, and preached
among the farmers in the outlying district.
It was here that they secured Noah Drew
for a disciple, but who afterwards became
an object of pity. On their return to England they began the building of a great
temple at Chatham, which would serve at
once for a dwelling, workshop and place of
worship. Before it was finished, however,
Jezreel, in the midst of one of his wild sermons, burst a blood-vessel and died. His
mantle fell upon his wife and she became
head of the house in name, as she had long
been in fact. Then she began to truly
merit the title of "Queen Esther," She
dressed in royal fashion, wore a jewelled
crown, and was attended by liveried servants, Her rule was more autocratic than
her husband's had been, but her tact and
shrewdness enabled her to keep her followers content. She told them, and they believed it, that she would never dio but
would live to see tho end of the world
which would occur in September, 1895.
She did die, however, in June, 1888, to tho
surprise and grief of the community. But

Woman's Weakness.
One of the most painful and at the same
time absurd exhibitions of false economy
may be seen in the crowds at the bargain
counters at the ordinary shops. There
seems to be an ineradicable idea in the
minds of some women, that at certain times
and seasons of the year merchants are willing to give away iheir goods with practically no profit,
Ii is a oiitnmon trick in tlie inferior shops
to smoke up and soil a few goods, advertise
a "burnt goods sale," mark the goods at
the regular price, and thus they often attract a large crowd of buyers who remain
perfectly oblivious to the fact that the gooilg
are being sold to them at the regular market price without the slightest reduction
because it is a burnt goods sale.
Almost every shop, nowadays, cuts off
goods as remnants and marks them at the
regular price in order to attract the
inevitable remnant hunter. The success of
the various ninety-nine cent stores is but
another illustration of the frailly of woman
nature in this matter. It is no exaggeration to say that many a good woman has
spent five cents in car fare in order to save
iliis one cent on thc dollar. Forty-nine
Cents seems 80 much less than fifty, ninety-
nine cents Infinitely loss than a dollar, and
small merchants have readily taken advantage of this curious weakness.
The gift-packages which come with tea
and collee are another illustration of this
universal desire of the shopper to get something for nothing. No sensible woman who
reflects over the great amount of money
made by such concerns can believe that anything is given away, An inferior quality of
tea is palmed off at the regular price of the
good quality, and thus the purchaser is
made to pay for the gift.
