already advanced 60 cents per pair,

The Ganlois tells the following story
of an intelligent French poodle: "A
oiina beggar was in tbe babit some
years since of frequenting the Pont del
Sts. Peres, where he nsed to station him

poodle. Tbe place was well chosen, and
charitable contributions poured into tse

who bad reached an advanced age, was
not to be seen. He had fallen ill, in
fact, and was nnable to pursue his avo
cation. His faithful companion, how
ever, continued to frequent tbe accus
tomed spot, and the passers by to whom
be was familiar understood that hia
master was unwell, and, touched by the
dog's fidelity, dropped their pence into
hia bowl in increased numbers. After a
time the beggar died, an event which
tbe wily poodle kept carefully to him
self until he also became an absentee

appearance produced a great sensation
among bis numerous -clientele, and

by a womaa, although the ehirog
raphy is decidedly masculine. It
Dear Sir: I want to talk to yoa
a little about some business. I don't
know whether yoa know the maa or
aot. I promised his mother years
ago whea I lived with her; she aad
her husband had hid some gold
money; they got it by some crook
aad hid it away. They told me, pay
ing me well lor not to tell about it.
Now I see their bob has sola the oia

and, and that money ia hid away ia
the old brick house. I was out that
way a few days ago aad aee it ia for

people who live there about the
money; so I thought best to tell yon

thing over $2,000 ia gold ia that

house to reveal the secret to the
purchaser. I doa't waat the

tell yoa who I am whea I meet yon.
l hope it won't be loag until yoa buy
the place. Then I and my husband
will go out and atop over night with
yoa, and then we will nnearth the
treasure. I would aot pay over f 3,
500 for the place. Aad there being
12.600 hidden in tbe house, it will
only cost yon 81.000. Don't tell
anyone about it."
Tbe epistle bears date of April SO.
The clergyman has aot bought the
property, it might be said, aad no
one has heard of the gold being
round on the premises.

whom he seeks to hold np to public
scorn. But the nervv part of the
proceedings, and it is always the
case in such matters, the articles are
not signed or else the author reveals
his identity to the editor, but says
that if it most be nsed to relegate
the communication to the waste
basket, and that is where the most
of them go, any wav. Here ia
bona fide sample which the akqcs
received aome time aince:
Henry , father of Mrs
, who lives at No. Fourth
avenue, gets himself in trouble by
trying to run other people's business.
He entered a neighbor' house Bator
day evening at 8 o'clock and tried to
take authority of the house and its
occupants without having any cause
whatever to do so. He came near
getting a good lashing, and should
he try the same again, he will proba
bly get worse than a lathing. He has
been in a terrible amount oi trouble
and aa luck happened got out, but
he has the wrong one this time."
Here is another one, which having
bo signature, was treated like the rest
ox its character:
