A rather amusing story is told by an
exchange of a man who went to a

chase an ax. Being shown the article
and informed that the price was $1.15,
he said: "Why, 1 can get the same
kind of an ax from Bears St Hawbuck
for ninety cents." "Very well," said
the dealer, "I wili sell it to you for
the same price, providing you will do
witli me as you would with them.''
"All right," replied he customer, as he
handed over a dollar the dealer hand
ing him back 10 cents in change.
•Now,"' said the dealer, "1 want 3S,
cents more to pay express charges."
This the customer handed over. "Now,
how much does the ax cost you?" "A
dollar and 15 cents," answered the
man. "Very well," remarked thedealer.
"Now, give me 5 cents more for money
order fees and postage," which the
purchaser also handed over. "Now,
how much does your ax cost you?"
"One twenty," said the ctstomer.
"Not so cheap after all," said the
dealer. Whereupon he picked up the
ax, tossed it back upon the shelf and
told the customer to call for it in ten
days, as that would be as soon as he
could get it if he ordered it from a
