Auction day is indeed a gala day to our busy house J wives ; yes, and to the husbands and chil !dren, too. They all make a day of it. j To pet the full flavor you should go early and watch tliem gather. In the old clays they came afoot, horseback, in the 'democrat, ami in the lumber wa;;on. Now. of course, a few who live near come on loot, our tne majority come wnu au tomobiles, and there is a small sprink ling of horse-drawn vehicles. Rut hark! Here comes the auctioneer! His is in deed a familiar face and he also has a great memory for faces. Now cp-.iet, no more visiting ; the bus in of the dav is at hand. It is still for a brief space, then tongues that cannot keep immovable long begin to wag. at first low. then gradually louder, and more ami more join in until the auctioneer calls out, "wait your visiting until later." There is much good natured chaffing between him on the block and the bidders, mostly local, but one needs to be .well acquainted with the parties to get full significance if it lefers to some past transac tion.
