Miscellaneous Selections. A Prompt Man of Business.
The following "business-scene", from
"Never too late to Mend" is scarcely ex-
:el!ed bv anything from the pen of
Meadows fouud Mr. Clinton at Peel s.
"Mr. Clinton, I want a man of intelli
gence to be at my service for twenty
four hours. I give you the first offer,
ir." " -;: " ,
Mr. Clinton replied that he had bo
many irons in the fire, that twenty-four
hours . '
Meadows put a fifty pouud note on
'Will all your irons iron yon ont fifty
pounds as flat at that!"
"Why, hem!' - -
"No, nor five. Come, sir, sharp is
the word. Can you be my servant for
twenty-four hours for fifty pounds I yes
or nor - - '
"Why, this is dramatic yeal" : .
"It is half past two. Between this
and four o'clock I must buy a few hun
dred acres in Australia a fair bargain."
"Humph I Well that can be done.
I know of an old fellow that has land
in every part of the globe."., .
i.na uio w aj 1 in.
In ten minutes they were in one
those dingy narrow alleys in the cHj pf
London that loot .the abode ol -decent
poverty, and they could afford to buy
Grosvenor Square for .their stables; and
Mr. Clinton introduced his friend to
blear-eyed merchant in a '. large . room
papered with maps; the windows were
incrusted, mustard and cress might have
been grown from ! them. . Beauty ! in
clean linen collar and wristbands would
have shown here with intolerable lustre
but the blear-eyed merchant did not
come out bright by contrast; ne naa
taken the local color. You could see
him. and that was 'all like.a partridge
in a furrow ;; a snuff colored man; coat
rusty,' all but the collar, and that was
greasy ; ; poor, as Jts color wasy his linen
had thou eh t it worth emulating; black
ish nails, cotton wipe, little bald place
on head,4)ut didn t shine Tor tne same
reason the windows didn't '' Mr. Clinton
armroached this dhirrtv money,' thi
rustv coin, in the epirit of flnnkeyism."
"Sir," said he. in a; kw reverential
tone, "this party isdisposed. to purchase
a few liuri d red acres in the "colonies." .
..."Mr. Rick'' looked up-from his desk
and pointed with a aweep of his pen
the walls. . : ; :. v ' r. i V .: o
J "There are the maps; the red crosses
are mvland. .Tbey are numbered. Re-
. - k . .
fertothe margin, of .tne map and you
will find the acre and tbe latitude and
longitude calculated to a fractron.
When you have settled in what part
the world you buy, come to roe again,
time is gold. ".
And the blear-eyed merchant, wrote,
and sealed, and filed, and took no notice
of his customers.-;They found red .cross
es in several of the United 8tates,
Canada, in Borneo, in nearly all
colonies, and as luck would have
they found one small moss within thirty
miles of Bathnrst, and the margin
scribed it as n?e hundred acres. '
1 Mr. Meadows stepped to the- desk,
"1 have found a small property near
Bath u rt
"Bathnrst! where js that I" :
suitr . .... ....
"If the price suit. What is
pnee, sir! r r ; ; .
"The books must leu us mat.
Mr. Rick stretched out his arm
seized a ledger and gave it to Meadows.
"I have but one price for land,
that is five jer cent profit on my out
lay, book will tell you what it stands
me in: add five per cent to that,
take the land away or leave it". . .
With" this curt explanation Mr. Rick
resumed his work., . . .
"It seems you gave five shillings
acre ; said. Mr. ! Ulinton "
times five hundred shillings, one hun
dred and twenty-five pounds. Interest
at five per cent six pounds five."
1 ..... ... , . . r n
"When did 1 buy it I" asked Mr men.
'Oh! when did you buy it, sir?".
Mr. Rich matched the book a little
pettishly and gave it to Meadows.
"1 ou make the calculation, saia
"the figures are all there. Come tome
when you have made u.
The land had been bought twenty-
seven years and some montns ago.
Meadow made the calculation in a
of the hand and announced it -
rang a hand belL Another snuffy
ure, with a stoop and a bald bead and
pen, came through a curtain.
"Jones, verify that calculation."
"Penny half-penny two pence, penny
half-penny two pence. Mum, mum!
half-penny wrong, sir." , V ' '. ."','
"There is a half-penny wrong,"
Mr. Rich to Meadows ith a most
Liured air. ' " . : ": '; .''';''
"There is, sir," said Meadows, "but
is on the right-side for you. I thought
I would make it even monoy against
"There are only two ways, wrong
right," was the reply. "Jonea make
right There, that is the price for
next half hour; after business hours
add a day's interest ; and, Jones
iie doesnot buy, write your calculation
it.to tbe book .with date save time
customer comes in for it"
4 You need not trouble Mr. Jones,"
said Meadows. -' I take the land.
is two hundred and fifty pounds
Is rather more than half-the purchase
"Jones, count'- ' .r '
"When can I have the deeds, sirl"
"Tea to-morrow." - ,
"Receipt for two hundred and fiftj
pounds," said Meadows, falling into the
others key. v " ' '
"Jones, write receipt, two, rive, naugnt.
"Wnte me an agreement to. sell,' ,
proposed Meadows. ., -,;,
"No, you write it; I'll sign it Jones

you iinything to do, yosng gentleman f
Then draw this pen through the two
crosses on the map and margin.., Good
morning, gentlemen. .v.:-
And tne money-making machine rose
and dismissed them as he had received
them with a short, sharp business conge..

... "ie fair who turn a saop neaa over
heels, maul sixty yards of ribbon and
buy six, which being sent home insatia
ble becomes your desire to change it for
other sit, which you had fairly, closely,
and with all the powers of your mind,
compared with it during the seventy
minutes the purchase occupied, let me
resnectfullv inform vou that the above
business took just eight minutes, and
that "when it was done 'twas done.
All kinds of sayings are prevalent ex
pressive of contempt with regard to the
reasoning and argumentative powers of
women.' "Trust a man's reason, and a
woman's instinct;" "Depend on a wo
man's first thoughts, not on her second,
are specimens of what we hear every
day reiterated. We. are not about to
insinuate that the bitter pill is not ad
ministered in the BWeetest of coverings.
The assertion as to the inferiority of
woman s reasoning faculties are gener
ally accompanied by such strong state
ments with regard to tbe superiority or
their instinct, and of the judgments re
sulting from the decisions prompted by
, that we are not in the slightest de
gree surprised to find women unprepar
ed to give, up the advantages of an in
stinct, the exercises of which cost them
no trouble, merely that they may gam
the power of employing the slowest pro
