A good deal of amtnet'mett hni been caused in dry goods trade cir elee during the pant few dayas h. the leakitng out of a little story aR the expense of two young gentle men who itre widely and filtvolably known in the traith.

At lelgtlh, knlow ing their father's ftlllld s fi lor a blr gain, they thought of a rute b3 whicb to inlluce himt to lay oil lit old gaTrment Iand get a Inew oine Tatking the coat ,which the father hadl worin they went to their tailoi and instrutcted Iit to take it Is r pattern as to size nidtl to lit n;make the fluest eciit he couldl.

In dun time the tuils received wore that the coat was l liiisheld-p-rie eighty dollars. The next ililrliiun at breatkfast the eldest lon cannalll renmarked: "F'atber, you uwill be goinlg near the tailor's to-day, Ian I wish youl would sttlp Andll tell hits to be sure anld senld home my nec coat to day for I hlave a lparty to attend t to to light." "Very veil, my soil, I vill do so but I don't see what you iptys vail with s manily goats." The oll gentlleman delivered hit imessage, iand the tailor' oplportuti ty had come. Fingerngll the veaer able garment, Iht rettiirked., iWtrnst sively: "You ought to have a nen Coatt. It i a it shame for a rich iatl like you to wear such an oil gar imet as that." "Tank yotl very much; but this goat is good enough ifor mlle." "I hatie got tumletrhilg," iersis ted the tailor, ,Itlht I belitre will fit you, ittil it is the greitelt bargalit that yo ever i healrd of. i uiltl it for a celtonier, bilt it wans i lintflt The prlicet of thlit tcoit," suitl the tailor, jirodtucilg the gllrnltt, "i. eiglhty tiollatR, buit it noni't fit the man I nilmale it for, anltd I'll let yot have it for next to uothiung. Tty if on." The coat was tried on, and proe ed a lwrfect lit. "You'll never get mach a bargain again if you live a htlltdrttd 3ears, said the tailor. "You may have that coat for forty dollars. "I'll gift you twentyfive," said thu old merchant, who knew cloth whet he saw it. "Take it." Carrying his old coat in a bundle Ute purchaser went out arrayed it the eighty dollar coat. At sipper that night be sppeare In the famoiliar old coat and in ex eellent goed humor. To hit soni be aid: "1 made Ia ice little bthin to day. VeI wu a de tailor's I bought a goat-a nice, fine goat. The price vas eighty dollars, het I got it for twenty-five dollars. I put it on and had not gone a square pe fore I met a friend. He uoticed my new goat and shpoke about it, and I told him about bow I got it so sbeap. He offered me thirty dol lars for the goat and I took it made five dollars in fife minutes." "Yes," said the sons, dolefully., in chorus, "you've made five dollars, and we have lost fifty-fire." Then they explained. "My gracionasl that is stad," said the old man, when he compreheuded the situation: "but let die be a lesson to you, my ahd-l dren. Never dry to deceive your fader."-PhiladelpAia Times. Raise Your Own Seed Corn. The tilme to plant for this is now while the corn crop is going on, or under cultivationl. It is a reasonable thing to say that a tenth may be added to the yield of corn on any farm by using seed that has been carefully raised for the purpose. Not much attention is paid to the selection of seed by the average far. titer. The man who reads and thinks about the Mred used for his lrops, select* the best he can find In his crib it plantinig tiime, and linds Ithat this laysl. It pacls still better to se le.ct eailr from the fall previous to planting, from stalks that bear two or nearle pe-rfi'ct ears. A better pl!anll sill is to pltint the corn for 'seed in a small patch by Itself, and ginlirll it against all the accidents that must attend its growth and r.,-lltivation in the larger field. The grllUel should hlie specially prepared tar this purpose, and utadle rich enough to supiiily all the wants of thie lilant. It should be thoroughly enltiviateil e'ery two or three weeks until tim grain is full in the ear. Like piro lllces like, in coiin as ill cattle, alnil the milk awild the tassel a re boith fact-ors in givinlg cbharacter to the le ar. Though theli male and fetllUate hilosao,t ill the corn are upi. tion the saille plant, theli ils to se.u rit% for aeilf-fertilizatinn when anll phl:at in grown in the open field. The illlen from i barren stalk may fall uponii the ear grown frolit select. ed setee, and this ear may he imper fetI , or be a cob with little or lno e-orn one it. If the eirm seliectIedl for se-ei lhave beeni fi-rtilized by i nobiib bin stalk, tiele nbbin imperfection goes down to posterity. In a small piece of corn planted remote fom other corn we maiy guard against the accidents of promlsoeonlu thrtili. fstatin, atndl accure. a far as lposlible, corn with a good pedigree, and pleer. feet after its kind. All barren stalksa honld be cuat et, ntill no more stalks he left in the hill thatn will give perfect ears. If the owner will epltlt f'rnom this patch the eacr iest anlld Itest formed ears, for his stdccl. alind follow upl this plractice for a few yeailrs eti will have a nlew va. riety anlld a large increnas in his yieltl.--A nterican Agriultu'raliat for A Petrifed Corpse.

Ottne small hole otlly liad rusted through tbe zinie. The metal was cut, and the coffin opened, and the body found to be eomltletely petrifled. The child lay betore the mother as no. teral in fbrm saclid Atrate uas when consigned to the Igrave twenty-on years ago. The features were per feot, anti face, arms and hands like alabaster.
