A few days ago a tory came to the knowl
edge of a Now. rep HOT that ts-nrs out the
olmrvatioim. It wns a I mi it a Mrs. ttrown
wbo lived tn an uptown flat. Khe read tba
advertisement of a laree auction sale lu a
street off the flowery. She had never been
to any of these snli-s, but her friends had told
her such tab of the many useful articles
that ran tw ImiiKlit there for lew than half
their value that she fell bent ou trying the
txperinient for herself. Cy strict economy
she bail anved f.iu from her weekly allow
ances, and that money should buy two sets of
curtains. They were aih ertinil for lesa than
one-fourth of their real value, and Mm.
Brown wanted curtains ery !ail!y. Her
bal been wanlnil and darned so often that
tbey refused tn bold out any lonper. So one
fins morn 1 MR Mi-a. Brown set out for the auc
tion snle, a little timid but full of anticipa
tion. Tba room was so crowded that she could
not eTnmine any of the articles for aide and
hardly could she collect her thoughts. The
humming of the hundml-i of voices, the shrill
calls of the auctioneer and the answers of the
bidders bewildered her thoroughly. But she
wa a smart woman and able to take care of
herself. The curtain bail not lievn sold yet
and would not l for some time tn come, but
there was a ilik such a beautiful, old fash
ioned one, just one of tin we that ara all the
Tgm now. Her huiluind had winhed for a
good, big desk with eiteuslon and drawers
for ever so 1-mz, and oext week was his birtb
dav. Kur-h a chance would never occur
apatn-e desk worth from t" to H. Mr.
Brown could not resist and after several ef
forta the ihk was hers for '.'."i.
She would not ifn home yet ; she just began
to feel interested in the thing w lien a folding
bed was brought. How much mors room
would tbera be in their little sleeping room
if. Instead of the big standing tiedstead, she
would buy this lsautiful f il.ting bed. The
room would look quite different, and any
how everybody bail folding lie. Is nowadays,
soliloquized Mrs. Brown, and looked with
longing eyes toward the envied object.
Why don't you l.idf" aske.1 a womau be
"I am sorrv I cannot, 1 have not money
enough with me," replied Mrs. Brown, dole
"If It is only that, ther w ill give credit a
long as you like, and if they do not. I will
take the folding lied off your b in Is. I want
it an v how and do not care for bidding mr
MR. SK'iWNS SHHAls.
An I thus encouraged Mrs. Brown bought
the beautiful folding bed for t'U). It was a
real bargain, she wa wild everywhere, aoJ
slie felt very happy.
At hut there caiue the enrtaius. They
were just what she wanted, and she had no
more money But her newly found friaud
encouraged ber again and pmnn-s-d to take
tba curtains also off ber bands if necessary.

auoo Mrs. Brown was the b.ippy owner of
two sets of real lace curtains for (1; worth

At last the sale was over, ami people paid
and removed their pun-haw-. Mra Brown
was asked to settle ber bill, amounting to
70. and take har bargains away.
Timidly she approached tbe auctioneer to
explain matters and ask for credit, but he
looked augrily at her and inrioted on Immedi
ate payment. Mrs. Brown went tn look for
her friend, but that person was not to re
found anywhere, and Mrs. Brown stood help

An el.lerlv geutlemuu. who hud evidently

Jiever anv bargain hunter felt more grate

This man worked for Maglnnis, a fish and

Tbey used tbe trunk to scorp water on tb
