Of couree. a hundred vears hence. hunters
for antlque tbings wlll discovcr and write up
the queer waya of people of now-a-daya, and
thank the Btars they did bot llve ln thla elow

do the same way wlth a hundred years ugo.
One of our leading cltizena tells us of the inno
vatlons made ln veblcles many years ago. Ilis
father bougbt ono of the flrst buggles brought
to town from Connecticut. It had nelttier
sprlnes nor thorouch-braces. but the body was
bolted behlnd to the axle, and in front to tbe
croBS oar. rue seat Rnow no luxury oi e

Arrlved at hls majority, and about to marry, be
bought that buggy, but no longor to uso in that
old fashioned wav. that lacked tone. Thero
would be notblng startling in tbe new body he
gave it, but wbo guessea how many eyes and
moutbs may havo been ngap as he adaed to it
a set of tborough braces 7 Dld tbe wortbies of
that day honestly thlnk they saw dlsaster and
ruln ahead of the young man? Well, he haa
dodged verv clear of such a fate thus far.
Another curious feature of those days waa tbe
manner of debt-paying. October 1st and Janu
ary 1st belng days speclully set apart for tbe
purpose, the former for pavlng wlth ntock and
the latter wlth graln. Another of our citizens
tells an interestlng Incldent of an October

sbe squared a number of accounts. Then. too.
