told him so repeatedly so nccordingly this
wus sure to bo quite tho thing that Mrs. Law
rence and her sisters wero accustomed to.
Operas? He watched up and down tho
paper, but could find no opera advertised
(nutuiallv, fur it was the mouth of Noveiubor,
nnd we aro still so benighted as to have no
opera all the year round iu Loudon), aud
thus everything seemed to point to a play.
In a fever ot excitement, and iu the veriest
slough of ignorance, he pitched upon apiece
(it was the poorest aud feeblest ga.ng), wrote
that he iauaied ho had heard Miss Ashburtou
say she would like to go to it (she had clono
nothing of the kind) and wound up by offer

N. U. Ono of tho tickets was of course for

He was jubilant. All that day he walked i

His next lelter, tho order for tho tickets,

barons will begin to put an extra lining in

grub at the poor man.
There was n slight decline in the ptice
early in March, but tbe old prices were re
sumed about u month ngo.
Wholesalers nnd retuilers thought' nt that
timo that there would not be another increase
uutil the regulu: advunco in the Fall, and
they set about making contracts, taking the
prices for Juno as a basis.
At a meeting of the managers of the big
corporations held during this week, how

from 10 to IB ceuts per ton.
This scale will go into effect on Monday,
nnd the wholesale prices then will be: Grate,

the letaii'pnce according to the advance they
huve been forced to pav.
