SOME OLD TRADE TRICKS.
HERE ARE FORTY. Cheating to trade is no new thing. It was practiced in the fourteenth century as well as in the nineteenth. Our town records contain many cases of summary jurisdiction in matters affecting the price, weight and quali ty of food, clothing and other things. I cull a few from the archives of t he city of London. In 1348 proceedings were taken against a butcher for sell ing putrid meat. Three reasons were alleged against this conduct at his trial before the mayor and aldermen. It was deceitful and dishonest ; dang erous to the public health ; it brought scandal and disgrace upon the mayor, corporation and all the Inhabitants of the city that a Londoner should behave so. After the Investigation he was found guilty, and condemned to be taken, with his bad meat carried in front of him, to the pillory in Corn hill, and while he stood therein the carrion he had tried to sell was burned under his nose. It is well known that the pillory was an instrument in which the cul prit was fixed, Incapablcof movement, exposed to the contempt of the people. The offense of the culprit wis always publicly proclaimed, and, according to the views of the spectators the punishment might be severe or other wise. If they disliked the offense of the offender their contempt would take the proverbial and forcible form of rotten eggs and dead cats, and the trader would make a closer acquaint ance with his own wares, both raw and cooked, than lie might find pleas ant. A publican, convicted of selling un- sound and unwholesome red wine, was sentenced to drink a draught of the same stuff which he sold to the common people, the remainder being poured on his head, and compelled to forswear the calling of a vintner in thecitv of London forever, unless he could obtain the favor of the king. A note on the record states that he was readmitted five years later. About the same time we find a wo man charged with selling nlo in a short measure quart pot, the bot tom of which she had thickened with pitch and covered with rosemary, to look like bush In the sight of her custom , ers. It was a common practice to put some sort of evergreen leaves In the bottom of tankards hence the pro verb, "Good wine needs no bush." Her sentence was to stand in the "thew," or female pillory, with half of the pot uttached to it. As far as possible the cause of the offense was always exhibited along with the per son punished. Severe punishment was meted out for endeavoring to raise the standard market price of corn and other arti cles. In 1347 a merchant was Imprl soned for forty days for enhancing the price of his own property. lie secretly employed a man to bring certain of -his own (the merchant's) wheat to the market, whereupon lie bought his own at 2 pence more per bushel that the market price, of course taking care to make the same well known, forgetting, however, to state what he knew about the seller. Fur a rill Tlmea. The New Orleans Times-Democrat in its efforts to drum up all free silver papers represented at tflloxi In the rress Convention, unintentionally stumbled upon sixteen papers which advocated sound money and by a su preme effort managed to muster up 35 free silver papers and announced with a flourish, that the Mississippi press stood &5 to 18 In favor of free silver. Here Isallstof 40 Mississippi papers that favor sound money, not withstanding the Times-Democrat's erroneous report : Macon Sun. Okolona Sun. Iuka Vidette. Dekalb l'ress. Iiiloxi Herald.

Just as soon as a man is married, women shun him as they do a mud-puddle. If his wife goes away for a week he is deprived alto gether of female society. Girls who treated him nicely before his marriage would not walk a block with him af ter dark to save his neck. Married men must be a mighty bad lot. Dr. A.P.

Persons who.ifeel deeply, whos se.isiouities are Keen and strong rarely find it easy to maintain a uol- form, placid exterior, and the strut. gles betweeu their passions and their calmer wisdom is often a terrific one There are others nho never seem tu be troubled who are amiable wit h an amiability that it seems impossible to ruffle who never show any sign, of irritation, but are always equable and cheerful. Such persons are doubt less much to be admired, but their society becomes In time not only ex ceedingly monotonous, but even ex ceedingly aggravating. Try as we n ill, we can not get them to show fire They are devoid of enthusiasm, as they are Incapable of anger. Nothing disturbs that serene stillness, which is certainly not the stillness of death. A hearty quarrel is an Impossibility, Whatever we may do or say, they never get cross with us or call us ob jectionable names. All this is un deniably irritating. It Is quite re freshing to pass from the company ot these to a warm, full-blooded Indi vidual of susceptible passions. It Is a I treat to feel that the hand which grasps ours could, if need be, strike hard. It may sound very paganish to say 80, but we do love a little spice of human nature. Sturdy truth and faithfulness generally lie behind some capability of hottest anger. Wc know that those friends who often seem most cross and irritable are really our stiinchest and most reliable. Kut that bad temper In itself can never be an admirable thing, but that it is of ten accompanied by very sterling qualities. It generally co-exists with strength of character and independ ence of spirit. Moan and treacherous persons arc frequently amiable; but ter will not melt in their mouths, nor. I at their hearts. Of course, it Is very heretical to say a good word for had temper. Rut let us recollect that all temper is not! necessarily bad, nor all equability good.
