ob to V [California Grocer.] To keep trade i« the particular line in which you profee« to deal, it. I« necessary to always have on hand a well-asaorted line of good« so that your customers can rely on finding just what they want. How often does it happen that custom era, but especially those calling at yonr store for toe first time, not finding the article they first call for, pass on to another store whew they are possibly more fortunate and make the balance of their pur chases for the time being, thus run ning the risk of losing. If not all, a part of their trade. To obviate this, we. recommend the following plan as worthy of consideration. A memorandum book—which for convenience soke may be called a "purchase book"—should be kept easy of access in some part of toe stoic where it can always be found so that whenever any article is nearly sold ont it may be entered therein. Or it may be that some j article which you eonld sell to ad vantage might be suggested in trading that could be added prof itably to yonr stock. This plan would not only help your memory, but save a great deal or worry when about to make your purchase, either from a drummer or sending orders by mail, or preparatory to ward yoitr visiting toe markets. Instead of hurriedly running over ; your stock on hand, and thereby possibly overlooking some impor tant, article« you meant to purchase, j yon have merely to consult your purchase book, where, if it has been properly attended to, yon will find nearly all the articles nee-1 essary to porphtuse entered. By this simple means yon not ouly save yourself anxiety, but are less ! likely to purchase an uneven bal-j au ce stock of goods. We have seen this method tried with perfect success, and recommend it as an excellent plan to enable the store keeper to keep a well assorted stock always on hand, and thereby succeed in holding on to his trade. A Rwwuttie Story sf a Miue. [Washington Star,] The mention m toe Star that toe Mexican «had taken possession j of the San Feliato mine, and driven toe American company who were working it away, recalls to a writer for toe Star the romantic story told her by a prominent New j York physician in September. He : said that twenty years ago he was in Chicago, and was called to at tend the bed-side of an old Mexi can. The doctor remained faith fully at his side until he drew hie} last breath, and j ust before he died toe old man said: "Doctor, may j God reward you for your kindness to me. I have no money to give you, but I can tell yon a sevret known to me only, which may sometime prove valuable to you." i In a faint voice he told of how he j had become possessed of the i knowledge of the exact locality of j one of toe lost mines in Mexico, which had not been worked for ! more than a century, and he gave the physician the maps showing ! the situation which he had been! carrying about with him, being too 1 poor himself to use the knowledge for his own advantage, but always hoping to find some one to buy his j valuable secret. The physician ; thought little of toe matter at the i time, or for many years afterward. Within a year he has been there with a partner and bought toe land where his maps said toe mine would be found without disclosing why he wanted that tract. The mine was found, has been success fully worked, and has proved one of toe richest mines in Mexico. Set. Hfcaugdeodk Baxter Insetted [Texas,Siftings.] The Rev. Whaugdoodie Baxter, an Austin colored clergyman, wish ed to hint to Unde Nace, who is his near neighbor, that a gift of a cord of fire wood would be veTy gratefully accepted. Uneie Nace by toe way, does not like Whang doodle much. Finally, says Whang doodle, insinuatingly, "Uncle Nace, I'se gwine tor be powerful hard up for firewood dis winter. Can't yer gimme a load f" Unde Nace looked all around as if he was afraid of being over heard, and then he said— "Parson, is you worry pertiekler j whar de wood comes from?" Parson Whaugdoodle supposed I this to mean that Uncle Nace was going to give him some stolen wood, so he replied : "Unde Nace, as long as I get« de wood, I don't keer whar it "Den Parson, yon don't keer whose wood yon bums up." "Hit»« all de same to me, Uncle Nave." "Well, lam gwine," aaid Nace. "War is yer gwine f" "Ter lock up my wood shed."
