“Monday,” said Inspector Knox to the re
porter, “is the bargain hunters’ day. Tliej

out of bed Sunday morning, and all day lonf
they poio over it, reading tho cut dowt
prices of shim, dusters, dress goods, house
furnishing», including tin pails and brooms
and all tho rest, and they can hardly wait foi
Monday to come, they aro s< anxious to get
to tho bargain counters to inspect the 'marl
downs.’ Monday is a bard duy for the era

to say that the bargain hunter h;u
the right way. Some of them are known ir
the stores os‘hens'and ‘rifters’ and theii
mission in life seems to be to make tho clerk.1
‘tired.’ Monday after Monday I seo bun
dreds of faces that I have not seen for just a
week, and I know them like a book. I don’t
suppose any of them spend more than flftj
coats or $1, but what they don't know on th<
subject of bargains isn’t worth knowing.
They know all about prints and prices, il
they don’t know anything else. Some o!
them haven’t got over tho old fashion ol
trying to beat tho clerk down. That used tc
be the favorite pastime ^f many estimabh
old ladies from the north end, but with th<
modern methods of doing retail business, il
is just as useless as talking to a stone wall.
"Tuesday is a better kind of shopping day
The ‘mistresses’ come out I suppose they
have com© to learn that tho bargain huntei
must havo her day, and there is not mucl
comfort in entering into competition witk

and then they eome forth in all their glory
We know them pretty well now, but there is,
of course, less sameness in this class of cua

that where they came so often, as many ol
them undoubtedly do, they would get used tc
this: but then, there is a great difference bo
tween working on a quiet farm and elbowing
your way through Boston'« narrow streets,
and if they should com every week. 1 don’t
believe that it would bo possible to get used

country people are good people for ns tc

more considerate than the people of the city
are. Wo watch their interests closely, too,
and guard them against pickpockets, to whom
they might easily fall victims. Yet 1 will
say this for tho country housewife: Sb«

better than tho city woman doe* You never

When a sinker is used in bait fishing,
as it must l>e, it should be fastened so
that the loop in the gut or snell of the
hook is above it. The hook should be
about a foot below the sinker. Common
earth worms are the best, and should be
put on by running the hook through and
through them, care being taken to cover
completely the luirband tho »haft.

cannot be taught theoretically any more

in price and so complete in arrangement
that it is better to buy them than to trust
to one’s own ingenuity unless, indeed, one
be a connoisseur, in which case these
hints are useless.
Tackle should be of the lightest and

It was in this clinrch that I became
fully conscious of the superior methods of
the Catholic church in Europe, at least in
their ability to reach down and take in all
classes of people. The churches of Italy
are open nt all hours and times. The
central portions of the churches are clear.
There are chairs al sut which can lie used

sence of formal requirement which was
most agreeable to witness. People came
in and went out as they pleased. Even
those who were listening to the sermon
felt under no compunctions to listen to
more than they cared to bear. They could
listen to a portion and then move on.
People came in out of the street just as

Exquisitely dressed ladies from the high

had ever witnessed in my life where It was
evident that everyone was made welcome,
and that in this splendid palace of religion
there was the most perfect democracy to
be found in its audience.—T. C. Crawford

DAHKIEl* SEE1NO THK SIGHTS.
It was no uncommon thing to see four or
five colored ladms and gentlemen, with
loaded trays bulanced on their beads, stand
ing in front of tbe Lark lodge gates at once
fairly drinking in the Oriental niagnificeucv,
Tbe great sight consisted principally of the
fountain in tbe middle of the yard and a few
strangers sitting under the archway leading
to tbe hotel oflice; but this was enough to in
terest the sable trumps, who had already
trudged over miles of dusty roads to bring
theii gtxxis to market, and still had a
long walk before them. It is only fair
to tbe colored people of Jamaica to
say that they do less of this sort
of thing than their brethren on any other
English island in the West Indies. in
Montserrat, for instance, they regard a
strange white man as a colossal aggregated
circus come to town, and fol lew him wherever
he goes. In Nassau, though they are used to
seeing strangel’s, tiiey surround a new arrival
in droves, and make great efforts to secure a
nixpenee or even “a big copper, boss." In
Barlsuioes, where thr improvement of the
negro race under British rule is seen to tha
best advantage, they set after a newly ar
rived stranger like a crew of Malay pirate*
till he is driven to take refuge in the nearest
shelter But in Juniaiea they are quiet, in
offensive, and generally well behaved and
polite. Of courst those who make infrequent

to stare in the gate were waiting for a chance
to sell their wares, but they bad no such idea.

One of the earliest arrivals every morning
was the man who sold photographs This
title I give him, “The man who sold photo

because I do not know what else to call him.
He was hardly a men, although he had the
outward appearance of one, for be had no
more intelligence than one of the goldfish in

for notxxiy ever bought any , the pictures be
