The Tricks ok Trade. Tho. effort on J
the part of somo of our httckstors to socuro
tho "first pick" from tho vegotablo wag
ons coming into our city, often gives rue
to ?cry splrtyijjeontcntion. About threo
o'clock yesterday morning an cntorprlsing
member of thnt class tf traders posted
himself on tho sidewalk about a hulf milo
abovo tho court houso, with a view of
"way-laylng" a load of green peas that
wero expected to arrive in town about
daybreak. Ho felt quito suro of his prizo,
and felicitated himself on the advantage
It would give him in tho trade of tho ear
ly morning. "Whllo waiting on tho side
walk, and congratulating himself on his
promised success, n rival' huckster was
stealing by him, underneath, tho sldo walk,
determined to gobble tho samo batch of
peas. The "dodge" was a good one, Tmt
not qulto sacceisful. No. 2 finally stole
beyond the eyo and car-shot of his rival,
and emerged from bis cover. Thtnklng
it possible that a third huckster was still
boyond him. ho mado up his mind, as
Uotts once did, "to head 'em or dio." and
actually visited tho garden from whenco
tho supply was expected. Findine a cou
plo of busheh of tho coveted vegolablo
already gathorcd, ho dumped them into a
wheel barrow which bo found at hand,
and actually wHcclcd ttio load, a distance
of twomlloj, tohisplacoof business, in tno
city. This he thought "sharp," though
somewhat laborious "practice," and it
was ; but the result scarcoly justified tho
effort, since, on his return, he found his
competitor "up to his ryes" in peas, nnd
measuring them out by pecks and half
bushels to a perfect crowd of customers,
and manifestly Ignorant of tho offort that
had been put forth to "head him."
While No. 2 was under tho sidewalk the
market wagon passed him, nnd with it!
entiro contents, fell into tho hands of his
