The Store That Never Advertises.
The following doleful description of a store that never advertises is commend ed to those merchants who think they can do business without patronizing the printers : The store that never advertises is probably one of the most solemn spec tacles to contemplate that is ever spread before human vision. From the out Milo it resembles a hearse house with mournful variations. Occasionally some one steps in to inquire, with becoming solemnity, ii there has been a death in the lamily, or to ask where that store is that the papers tell about? But aside from these and a few withered cronies who drop in to discuss the causes which led to the revolutionary war, the quiet of the place is never interrupted. One of the proprietors, if there are two. posts the last year's accounts in chalk on a shingle, and the other5 tells how folks did when he was a young man a story, if told well, that would make a first rate legend. They don't keep any clerks and onh haii keep themselves. Timid boys say as they pa the store the place is haunted, and the hurrying business man referred to it as that old place where old Slow & Easy ii-ed to keep a store man years ago. The onh difference between day ami night is, that at night you are more lia ble to bump your heads against the fad ed out sign board that drops from the door facing, and once was luminous with the gay colored word "store,'' Such instances are terrible warnings to men of the present age not to try to do business without advertising. The Jeemses-A Funny Incident for Funny Folks to Read. From the K. C. Journal of Commerce. Kearney was the scene of the follow ing rich incident a few days since. A well dressed, heavy mustached gentle man, with a valise, left the train, enter ed a store and took a seat by the stove. Shortly after Airs. Samuels, the mother of the outlaws, came in, and being sus picious of strangers, quietly asked a clerk who that man was and what was his business. The clerk, thinking only of a little fun, told her he was a detec tive, but that he had forgotten his name; that was enough. She left at once to report. The clerk, thinking it was a pretty clever trick, told his employer of the joke. "Good God man!" .exclaimed the merchant, "your joke will be the death of this gentleman.''1 Away went the clerk to find the old woman and ex plain the matter, while the gentleman with the mustache and valise gave un mistakable symptons of ague. The as surance of the clerk that it was "all right now,' served to onh partially re store the tranquility of that St. Louis drummer, who solemnly avers that it is his first and last visit to Kearnej. Kate Bender. A woman upon whom suspicion has rested for some time, was taken' into custody one day this week near the Douglass county line. It has been thought by many for severl months that she is the geuuine Kate Bender, the genuine maiden, and heroine of the Kansas murders. Parties arrived here Tuesday and telegraphed for correct description. This "woman of whom we speak, we are informed, has been in )ouglass county some live monts. She has been known to hide herself on the approach of strangers, but we believe the direct cause for suspecting her con sists in the fact that she offered a cer tain man S5i0 if he would travel with and take her out of the country. She mentioned that it would be her plan to travel by night and rest during the day. Marshall (Mo.) Democrat. The Lafayette County Court. From the Jefferson City Journal. The St. Louis Democrat of yesterday morning contained the following tele gram from Lexington, Missouri, dated the 27th: "All the members of the count court resigned to-day, in compli ance with the demand of the Repudia tion Convention, now is session in this city.11 The resignations here referred to were received by the Governor yes terday. But the pith of the matter is they were promptly returned not ac cepted. The case is this : A few days ago the Circuit Court of the United States, now in session in this city, awarded an alter native writ of mandamus against the county court of Lafayette county, requir ing the justices thereof to issue their warrants on the county treasurer for the payment of the judgment of the court against the count lor interest on certain railroad bonds. It was for the purpose of avoiding the service of this writ that this resignation of the judges was at tempted. To this the Governor refused to be a party, and the acceptance of the resignation was accordingly refused. "We have not the exact language of the Governor's letter giving his reasons for the refusal, but we understand them to bo that he did not wish to be placed in the light of conniving at any such revolu tionary proceeding a? the resignations contemplate or constitute. Besides.it is understood that the Governor does not think that the resignations accomplish in law what they are intended to by the justices and their friends. By the pro visions of the eighth section of article 11 of the Constitution all officers shall con tinue in office until their successors are duly appointed or elected and qualified. So, until their successors are qualified, these would-be skulking justices will constitute and remain the county court of Lafayette couuty, resign or not, as they will. . Anotiiek "Xkw Idea." In some of the Granges in Indiana a -'querry box" has been introduced. Important ques tions are written on slips of paper; the Secretary then passes the box, collects and reads them, and the members of the Grange who wish to do so, give their views upon the questions read. This plan might no doubt be pursued with good results in connection with the cus tom adopted in many of the Granges of appoirting questions proposed, "to be read at the next meeting of the Grange. After Thirteen Yeahs. Dr. AVeatherby entered our office the oth er day and showed us a minnie ball, weighing one ounce and a half, which he extracted on the loth inst., from an ex-soldier named "Win. G.llainlin, who received the ball at the battle of Shiloh, on the fith day of April, 186'2, and had carried the ball in his body until that day, a period of thirteen years and nine days. The ball had caused a running sore, and was run ning at the time of the operation in several different places about the hip. Mavsville Register. It is evident that the Chicago Times does not have much faith in Louisiana Conservatives. It is evident, howerer, that truthfullness is not cultivated to any great extent by New Orleans Demo c:ats. The justness or unjustness of the Wheeler compromise has nothing to do with it, they solemnly swore to abide by it, and violated it at the first oppor tunity. Here is what the Times says : "When the Wheeler adjustment' was proposed, the Conservative members of the Louisiana Legislature entered in to it heartily. They promised faithfully that they would abide by the terms of the adjustment, and by means of that promise obtained a majority in the Low er House. The country confidently hop ed that this would be the end of the troubles in that section of th Union ; but the nature of the 'Conservatives'was not fully understood. The conscious ness that they possessed a little- power, awoke in them the desire for a complete domination. As a consequence they yesterday proceeded to unseat four He publican members of the House who had been declared legally elected, and seated in their stead four Conservatives1 who had not been elected. This was in direct violation of the letter and spirit of the Wheeler adjustment, which they had solemnly sworn to abide by." PIANOS AND OEGANS. Walter S.
