E. A. MAYHEW, Prop.
Some merchants are so all-fired dumb, you wonder how they '
ever come to sell the stuff they have in store, and keep the
sherriff from the door. Old Binkson is a lot that way; he.
seldom has a word to say. I ask him for a pound of lime;
lie wraps it up and all the time, he wears a tragic air of
doom, and sheds an atmosphere of gloom. He never chats
he never spiels, nor jumps tip high and cracks his heels. He
isn't gruchy or unstrung; he never learned to wag his tongue
Oh silence is a golden thing, when tisn't worked too hard by
jiilg. But none of us will stand up strong for men that,
gabble all day long, and elocute a thousand miles in fifty
seven varied styles. The dealer who is prone to talk until
you hear him round the block; is worse than t'other kind
of bird, who's never known to spring a word. But if you've

Other things he needs. I called on Lumber Dealer Gaff, to
buy a shingle and a half. He put my purchase in a sack,
and wrapped a string around and back, and as he toiled in
manner gay, he talked to pass the time away. "The fann
ers in busy troops are building stately chicken coops; the
winter soon will hit the road, and hens must have a warm
abode, or they won't lay then lucious eggs, but stand
Ground on frozen legs." And that recalled the fact to me
that I had hens some ninety-three, and ere I left that lum
ber store, I bought a wagon load or more, of stuff to build
a chicken shed; its staridiug now all painted red. And
that's the way big sales are made, and that is how meii
build up trade. Talk corn cribs at the proper time, or

hope is hale in eagerness to get the kale. Suggestion is a
noble art; the wise man get's it down by heart.
