1 hroiigh the count ry establishing hay
fmk agencies. Their mode of oper
ations is somewhat similar to that
practiced by sharpers who pretended
to he establishing agencies for I ho sale
of cultivators, a few years ago. Each
agent must sign an order for ten or
more forks, to he paid for when sold,
or if not sold within a certain time to
he, taken hack. The. order is in two
parts, one of which is a promisory
note which is collectible whether the
forks are delivered or not. Third
parties come around and endeavor to
collect the notes, or compromise with
the signers. A ease of this kind was
brought before the circuit court a
few years ago. It will be remembered
that, a verdict was given for the de
fendant, and that the third parlies
were glad to get elf with paying the,
costs, fearing that they might bo im
plic.ited with the rogues who obtained
t he note,ami prosecuted for swindling.

Fresh Garden Seeds.
Now is the lime to commence your
gardens and it is important to secure
good fresh seeds I have in stock a
choice variety of fresh seeds from ti e
well known seed house of D.M. Ferry
A Cos., of Detroit,who have established
a reputation of b.*ing one of the best
in the. I nited States. The most of our
seeds we purchase in bulk and put in
papers.hence we know them be fresh
and good. We have also a large stock
of hulk seeds which we guarantee to
be of the very best, and are sold at
fair prices. R. D. Pi uuiui.
MARKET REPORTS.
There is so little business doing that
it would seem almost useless to quote
the prices at all; however we publish
them to let the farmers know what
they could get if the mud would allow
them to come to market. Jsv the list
it will be seen that extra butter is
about three cents higher than last
week. This is not on account of any
rise, hot we fear that we wore unable
to obtain correct figures before. About
2.50 is about all that hogs are worth,
and it takes good beef cattle to bring
;;.50. \Ve cannot find out the real price
of lead, but everybody says "its away
