If you have a big account to audit take it to the book-keeper at the Largest Retail. He is pretty good in figures, and will figure any account from five to teu eents, but look out for the mistakes. Tlio reason why the New York Store is so neat and clean is that the clerks when not busy sell ing goods ure cleaning up the store. At the Largest Retail when the clerks are not busy instead of cleaning up the store they Jay back on their oars in the corners and eat crackers and cheese. The first thing you discover on going to tli" Largest Retail is a big dog, but no clerks. They are too busy mow ing away crackers and cheese to wait on customers. For bargains go to the New York Store. Sudden Death. N. V. Lent, a one-armed soldier, died suddenly Saturday night at the residence of George W. Gardner.

Pal miter in the wilds of Hamilton town ship, HiIh county, by a catamount, on the 2Hth of June last. Other pa pers have copied the article from our cotemporary and the Bradford Era of Tuesday has shown commendable (?) eutcrprise by going into the details of the a flair aud giving a lenghty and blood curdling account of the encoun ter between Mr. l'almlter and the catamount; and tells of the finding of the dead man's body by his brother. We don't know how the Era and Miner gained their information but we have positive proof that Mr. Palmiter is not dead, but still living in Hamilton township and expresses in readiness to fight, all the catamounts that McKean county can scare up. It is true he killed what he called a lynx a few weeks ago, while watching a deer lick and the animal made a spring at li f 111 but by the means of his trusty rifle and unerring aim the ani mal dropped dead at his feet witli a ball through its brain. He didn't re ceive a scratch. The party who gave our eotemporarics the information published by them either had a very lively information or was desirious of gelling up an exciting sensution. McKean Comity Democrat. ' New York, J uly 25, 1 88 1 . Dear Editok: While visiting Bidgway the other day 1 slopped be fore what looked a liltle like a dry goods and grocery store, next door to the watchmaker. When I went inside 1 found it wait intended to be a store, but concluded that the windows hadn't seen water since they were washed by the big flood of ISISI. The clerks looked worse than the windows, covered with buckwheat, beans, and molasses. I am certain that I was in the (fraud Buckwheat, instead of in a dry goods store. I saw three clerks, hut they made about one and a half. I went down to the post office and found a real dry goods store next door, and it looked more like a city store than any other in town. I advise all my friends to buy their dry goods, and clothing, at the dry goods store in the post-office block, where everything looks neat and clean, kept in first-class style, and where every one is waited on by gen tlemanly and experienced salesmen. Good bye, T. G., New York. Judge Pearson at Harrisburg on Tuesday last filed his opinion in the legislature mandamus case. This case is an application for a writ of man damus upon State Treasurer Butler, to compel him to pay to members of the legislature ten dollars per day for the extra fifty days of service at the last session of t he legislature, the applica tion being made under authority of a special act passed at that session. Last winter Attorney General Palmer rendered an opinion that the portion of the act of May 11, 1874, which pro vides for an extra per diem compen sation violates the constitution, which provides simply for a salary. A test case was made by members of the legislature in the case of Representa tive Charles S. Wolfe. A committee was appointed to take charge of the case and money raised to pay expen ses. The opinion of Judge Pearson sustains the Attorney General. The next step will be to carry the case to the Supreme Court. Lessens to Girl Graduates. An Ohio paper says that a young lady who graduated in a calico dress a few years ago is now married to u rail road superintendent who has an in come of half a million a year. This may be taken as a basis for the regu lation of graduating dresses hereafter. Had she worn alpaca slio might have done even belter, and caught the general manager of the road. On the other hand, hud she bloomed forth in white Swiss she might have captured the president of the concern with his untold millions, while had she worn silk, with point lace aud diamonds, she might have scooped in the conductor of n passenger train, aud had onyx staircases and alabaster stairs to her house, and cut the wives of the officers of the road as society altogether too thin for her style. The thing ought to be a lesson to girl graduates aud a sharp warning to patronize their tailors liberally. Brook lin Eagle.
