It is not vry difficult to find reasons
why flirts do not marry. Sensible men
admire in a woman something besides a
pretty face and engaging manners.
They love intellect, common sense, and
heart qualifications, which the flirt does
notposfcees. The true womn allows
her affections full play and"' is not
ashamed of them. She will not lead a
man to believe that she cares for him,
when she does no such' thing; she will
not flirt with him for the sake of flirta
tion ; she; has a truer . conception of
what is right, and possesses a great deal
more common sense; she has derived
her education from something else than
three-volume novels and the society of
the empty pated ; sbe can be thorougly
cerry without being idiotic. . She may
attract less attention in a drawing-room
than the flirt does, because she is less
noisy and obtrusive, but for all that she
will get married sooner, and make her
husband a better and truer wife.
A true woman does not care for the
spoony young man., fche dislikes his
foppishness, the vapid compliments he
pays her, and his effeminacy. He quick
ly finds this out and leaves her in peace.
Thus, if he ultimately gets married it is
to a flirt, and the happy pair lead the
jolliest cat-and-dog life imaginable. .

JACOB CLINE & CO.
Here is an article, from the New York
Journal 0 Commerce, one of the, ablest
newspapers of the United States,- to
which we respectfully call the attention
of our business men. What is said in
it of theatrical advertising applies with
more than two-fold force to all commer
cial and transient advertising ; "The
theatrical managers of New York are
not the pioneers in the movement
against advertising by placards and
hand-bills, but their combined attack
upon that absurdity and nuisance is the
most important yet attempted. The
shrewder merchants long ago found out
that the only ebeap and effective means
of advertising is in the newspapers ;
that ten dollarswell spent in that way
is equal to a hundred scattered aimlessly
in plastering dead-walla and gutters.
When so large a body of men as the
association of theatrical managers give
their aid to the work of reform, we.may
expect soon" to see the last of bill-boards
and all other modes of attracting public
attention outsideof newspaper columns.
The statistics of the waste : on this
head by the New York theatres are
something curious, - Each theater erects,
say two hundred bill-boards at sigtly
points about town, and the cost of that
carpentry cannot be less than one thous
and dollars to begin with. To keep
these boards covered with showy, and,
of course, expensive posters, is an out
lay of between thirty, and forty t dollars
a day for each theater remember. And
this is far from all. The worst remains
behind, in the form of free admissions
to the persons before whose premises
the bill-boards are stuck up. As those
nuisances stand there upon suffrance,
the gracious occupants of the premises
exact at least two free admissions to the
theater each week ; and so there are
(on the basis of two hundred bill-boards)
at least four hundred free admissions to
each theater floating about town. Prob
ably a majority "of the people who use
these tickets, would, if they were not
" dead headed," pay their way into the
atres like others. If the theaters dis.
pensed with newspaper advertising, and
depended on posters alone, that would
be a reasonable item of expense, but
they are obliged to advertise in th
papers all the same."
It is only newspaper advertising, we
maintain, that has done any good for
the theaters. If they drop that or cur
tail it too rruch, they might as well shut
up their houses. When these bili-boards
disappear the most powerful blow will
have been given to the ancient, offensive
useless custom of defacing the streets
with posters. And we hope that the
Common Council will pass an ordinance
forbidding the erection of all bill-boards
or other framework for street advertis
ing, the effect of which is to obstruct
pedestrians upon the sidewalks, without
doing any good to the advertiser which
he could not gain, at much less cost,
through the legitimate agency of news
papers." " , ...

. At a recent meeting of the Centenni
al Commissioners the subject of rail
road transportation being under inform
al discussion, Mr. Robert Lowry, of
Iowa, said : "The crop of com in I6wa
immense, but it costs five bushels to get
ot;e to the seaboard,"
A C invention of farmers . was re
cently held in Illinois, to look over the
situation and Hud out how it happens
that with a constant growing demand
for their corn and everything they raise,
prices have fallen below the actual cost
of production. It was agreed that farm
ing in the West is in a bad way. Pov
erty, if rot bankruptcy, it is said, stares
farmers in the face generally. Accord
ing to one of their spokesmen, "In the
midst of such overflowing abundance as
to choke the marts of trade, aud while
the consumers on the seaboard and
across the waters are hungry for our
products, we cannot realize enough to
pay our taxes and labor." It would ap
pear that more than one cause has been
instrumental in bringing on this state of
things, but the sentiment of the gather
ing was unanimous in laying the chief
blame on the exorbitant charges of the
railroads. It was shown that in ten
years, notwithstanding the iucrease of
r iilroads and consequently of competi
tion and of business, passenger fares
had been raised nearly forty per cent.,
with a corresponding advance in freight
charges. With com selling in New
York at 65 cents a bushel, it costs 42
cents to pay the freight from Illinois,
leaving only 23 cents for the producer.
One speaker stated that the actual cost
for transporting a bushel of corn for
that distance did not exceed six cents.
