daytifauuliy nxcd for the payments.
In England the payment of the price of
goods delivered is required at the end of
thn-p months dating trorn the day of ship

business without allowing a lorg credit,
which is usually one of six mouths.

One Girl Accomplished.
Any young woman -whose time Is not
wholly occupied by more serious duties,
who can beg or borrow the use of a rain

or six dollars in an experimental invest

industry in pigeon culture.
The charm of it lies in the birds them
selves, graceful, gentle, cleanly, harmless,
noiseless creatures, who flutter down at the
call of a friendly voice, arch their necks
humbly at the touch of a caressing hand
and lend to a barn yard that air of pros
perous domesticity Uie sleek house cat gives

A CHARMING OCCUPATION.
They ask but few requisites to thrive and
multiply and are very much less trouble

young girl who will supply herself with a
little practical information before hand,
can manage a cote of a hundred pigeons by
devoting one hour in twenty-four to their

ply her hour and interest two or three times
and feel it not labor loBt but pleasure and
money gained, for their very presence and
the opportunity to study them is a growing
delight while the quick return in money
for time and capital invested will inspire
her to greater effort.
However, as in all initial ventures, it is
best to begin on a small scale. Let a woman
who can command the requisites enumer
ated lay out five dollars m a basket full
of full-grown, healthy barn pigeons or
"common pigeons," as they are geuerally
Markings make little difference provided
the birds are clean, in good condition and
aboout six months old. They should not
cost more than sixty or seventy cents
apiece. Before even this step is taken it is
well to find your market. That is, consider
where you will be able to make steady sales
of tho "squabs. Any one living within an
hour by rail of Boston, New York, Phila
delphia, St. LouiB or Chicago cau depend on
disposing of their produce at the city mar
kets. Summer hotels are excellent depots
for sales, or in neighborhood? where there
are many summer countiy houses a clien
tele of regular patrons will not be hard to
secure, fixing the price at forty and fifty
cents per brace.

Kissing has come in again.
When two young women who mot last
week in the crowded shopping district of a
big city, raised their veils, bent over and
imprinted a hearty faluto, lip on lip, those
observing the litllo tableau declared It
j charming and refreshing in the extreme.
The spectators immediately forgot all about
the old blue laws of etiquette against pub

and in active practice, with all its code of
observances drawn in 1 nes as hard and faft
