Churning Done in One Minute.
I have tried the Lightning Churn, you
recently described in your; paper,' and it
is certainly a wonder. '. I can churn in
less than one minute, and tbe butter is
elegant, and yon get considerably more
butter, than , when you use , a common
churn. I took the agency for the Churn
bera and every, butter maker that eeej it
buys one.- I have sold three" dor.fin and
they give the best of satisfaction I know
I can sell 100 in this township, as they
churn so quickly, make so much tncwJ
butter than common churns and araVf
ebeap. Some one in every townsKp can
make two or three hundred dollars sell
ing these churns. By addressing J. F.
Casey & po St. Louis, Mo., you can get
circulars and tail lniormauon so you can
make big money right at home. I have
made 89 in the past two Weeks and I
never 6old anything before in my life.

Tne approach of winter always brings
what might be called an avalanche of
street beggars, A new dodge is for Some
young follow to approach you on the
street with four pennies in his hand and
ask for another to make five to get a cup
of coffee, for he had nothing to eat -tince
morning.' No person ouUide of a miajr
can harily refuse such a lequest, and so
t ha 'begger gets lots of coppers and nickels,

say : "Here,s a nickle," and would scorn
to ask for the chttnga. It is said that
