Respectfully, Dvindee Mercantile Companiy, DUNDEE, INCORPORATED. I KENTUCKY. T ALWAYS DEMAND FOR TEETH pne of Pawnbroker' Best Lines, and , Incidentally a Boon to the Poor or Big City. A ghastly little heap of false teeth. both upper and lower sets, lay in a Icorner of the pawnbroker's window, amongst second-hand shoes, rusty flat irons, old clocks and so on. "Any sale for second-hand false teeth?" the pawnbroker cried. "Why, bo, there ain't a more saleable com modity going. I'll advance money on a good upper set of false teeth as pulck as on a gold watch." Just then an old woman in a dingy black shawl entered. "Let me look at the false teeth in the window an upper set," she said. The pawnbroker, with a wink at the reporter, brought out three double bandfuls of teeth. These the poor old woman placed, one set after another, in her sunken mouth. The sixth set she pronounced a good fit. Paying for , It with dimes and nickels out of a worn purse, she departed contentedly, (the teeth wrapped in a piece of news paper. "Oh, I tell ye," said the pawnbroker jubilantly, "there's notbln' like second band teeth. I only gave 30 cents on that set, and I get one and a quarter for It. Not bad profits, hey?" HAD A NAUTICAL CHRISTENING iSea Captain Knew Only One Form of Ceremony and Old HI Duty at He Saw It Some years ago a slow sailing ves jsel, when some COO miles out from IJverpool, picked up a lusty young jster of five years lashed to a mast. The captain took a great liking to jhim, called him his son and decided (that the little chap must be Christ' ened one of the few things which ffce know must bo attended to in tb case of children. Of courso there was no chaplalv ! aboard, so the captain himself under took the ceremony. He gathered tht men about htm, and with a mixed knowledge of his duties he glarec 'about him and asked whether an) ono knew just cause why the bo) (should not be christened. 'If there is," ho roared, "speak ui hike a mau or forever hold youl jtongue." Then be suddenly cracked a bottlt lot wine above the boy's bead ant christened him. The ocean waif Is now settled dowi I a steady longshoreman, but he stll' relates with satisfaction the story tf jblM christening.

Weight Reduced by Cutting, The Kohlnoor diamond originally weighed 800 karats, but by suricesslvi cuttings it has reduced to 106 karats. Profit by Competition When several fertilizer companies decide to extend their business into new sections, price cutting is apt to occur, farmers are tempted by tnese reductions to buy even lower grade goods than the average. But the lower the grade, the less plant food one gets for a dollar. Ask for one percent, increase of wvm A Sn Potash in place of each dollar per U 1'1'jl VII ton reduction.
