aoowcred and rsplied. 'A pin." And
the bank m insaid, "Little boy are you

bunk man said, "How do yoa otei1

Cash vs. Credit. v
The Louden Grocery News, in an
editorial on "Iler-dy Money," says'.
It is no utto denyiut; the fact that there
is something very pleasant about ready
money. A distinguished philosopher
of the list century once mado the res
mark that even the best of men cat
occasionally a ludicrous figure wheu
they hare do cash ia their pocket.
Tradesmen aro quite aware of tbtt
tact, aud they are rather shy of th;.t
numerous, and io their way, we dare
say, highly respectable class of people
whaare always at their wits' ends for
the needlul, aud are accustomed to
borrow what, at:'cordin, .10, ahs1 iat
Moutap;ueTi;ij;,'lj-q , was the rtdteu
tously sinsip 8u!U of half crown. One
would, however, arrive at a different
opinion from the way in which the
husines4.tif the country is c.rned on.
The retail tradesman has no right to
gsve credit at all. Atetraetedlv, aud
as a matter of ethical philosophy, it.
may be stated that no customer shauid
purchase what be cannot utfnd to pay
for. As a matter of fact, tie Very
reverse is the case. Tradesmen gives
long creli:s, and half the people in
Kngiantl live aud ilouriflb, and cut a
dash by means of a papor credit in
urclerenco to cash payoient3. , As it is
the svsteui works badly in many ways
The tradesman makes bad debts, a:ul
loses bis money, and tie customer
.icquires a habit of es'ravaance, ruiu
ous iu every way. It has often breu
said, a::d said truly, that bankruptcy
begins in the parlor. The reason ot
ot tins is obvions. iirs. l. sees no
reason why the should not dress as
smart as jlrs. A ; why bcr children
should not go to the sarao expensive
school; wi y her house should not, be

the habit ot doing, when su id.M Ay a

A colition seemed iueviub!, unlo -s

however, was observed in th.;
