It s was seemingly a hopeless case, and r might have been, only for a demure e "Charley. I have said 'yes' twice, s and if you mean it, I mean it, too, 1 and-' t And to this day that young man will t insist that he popped the question. All this happened away "down t east," and it wasn't long before there t was a wedding. Not much longer l before there was a letter from Po ly's r Uncle Josh, (ilou. Joshua Turner, an old pioneer planter of Lafourche t parish) rich, generous and level head- e ed, who wrott effusively of his delightJ at her exhibition of what he called 1 "grit," and he proposed that if the 1 young people would locate at Thibo daux he would start them up in life, I as a wedding gift, having fully ex- ( plained that this is the best spot in ( the world for young married people to 1 get a good start. Of course they ac cepted, and were soon bidding their i friends adiesu. A few weeks subsequent to the above conversation a travel-stained e party arrived in Thibodaux. Our t friend Uncle Josh, was in charge and I he led the party straightway to the r 'Empire hotel. "We'll go to the Em- I pire," said he, "'cause that's the t popular place and strictly first-class. I have known Larrd, the proprietor, 1 for years and he is mine host after! mine own heart; being endowed with that delightful intuition that makes a guest feel at home, comfortable, con tented, and in mighty good luck. The house is one of convenience; the .part ments are well furnished and the cuisine-well, that hotel is noted for its excellent table, so I have engaged rooms here until your own house is n readiness'" "After breakfast is over," continued a the old man. "I must take you for a little drive and then we'll proceed to 4 buy your outfit. To expedite matters 1 I'll just call up phone No. 65 and have ( Naquin & Kesler. our enterprising livery people, send us around a rig. When the handsome carriage, with elaborate trappings and prancing horses drew up in fro -t of the hotel Polly declared it to be a turnout fit for a queen. "Yes Sir-ee," replied Uncle Juosh, "that is a purty neat rig the three S's. 'Speed.Safet. and Style' is Naquin & Keeler coat of arms, and best of all, the rates are mighty rea sonab e. Their weddinw, party and funeral equipments are unsurpassed. It was in a stylish turnout indeed that the rounds of the city were made. "No grass shall grow under our feet," remarked Unole Josh, "so what's first on the programme ?" "Oh goodness knows there's lots to buy." remarked Poll. "Then suppose we buy 'lots' first," quoth Charley without turning a hair. "Well, I see you've got a great head for business." laughed Uncle Josh, "we'll just stop at H. N. Coulon's real estate office. I ca:: always depend upon Nick Coulon for bargains in real estate, as he never holds out false lights to induce people to buy, but what he tells you about property. may be set down as solid facts. He controls a large list of des irable residences as well as farm pro perties, and his judgment on the 'good things' is par excellence." Ac cordingly ,Mr. Coulon, accompanied the trio on their drive and before re turning had sold to Uncle Josh, for his wards, a cosy cottage on Canal a, reet. as well as other property as an investtnent. "Having already provided a cage for the bird," said Uncle Josh, "now the ifrat thing we'll look after will be the furnishings for it." Hereupon Polly energetically declared that she had heard so much about Edgar F. Riviere's furnitu e store that she had decided to go there. The result was that they were ushered into such a be wildering display that .the girl was at first at a loss how to select. But she soon yielded to the seductiveness of a magnifceut parlor suite, bed room set in oak, golden finish, that would do credit to old Mr. Klondyke himself. To this she added an easy rocker for Uncle Josh, and didn't forget a most convenient and ornamental writing desk for "HIubby" C aarles. having come to the conclusion that Rlvlere's prices were below the very whisper of competition. "And in the matter of insurance." the old gentleman continued. "That is also of importince. You will want a risk on your new house and goods; then you can't do a more sensitbl or satisfactory thing titan provide for your family by takling out a 810000 Ipolicy in the Mutual Life of ew York. Our friends, Conlon, Braud & Coulon, not only representthe Matual Life, but also have the largest fire agency in this part of Louisiana. Their companies all belong to the old reliable category, being well known for their prompt and satisfactory ad justment of losses. It's better to be safe than sorry and you'll surely be safe in trhe Coulon, Brand, & Coulon, agency, because they are expert .nd trustworthy underwriters." The in surance matter was subsequently at tended to. "A pretty.good start," said the old man,' and now we'll go to J. s. Levron & Co. big hardware and stove store where Pollr's housewifely in satincts will have full play in marvels establishment In the country that car- or ries a more comprehensive stock of ca cooking machinery, or otýer house to bold furnishings,' remesaked Uncle as Josh. 'Every possible piece of kitch- sa en turni ure from a tin dipper to a pl cooking range is here in all styles and tb variety." If Polly fails to accomplish Ji wonders in the culinary art, it will not at be for want ot superior cooking uten- as oils, for she purchased a superior range with all other equipments need- e ed in a well regulated kitchen, all of m which Uncle J.losh paid for with de- oh light 'cause he knew Levron & Co. had n, treated him all right, just as they li treat everybdy. Ic Woman like, Polly was discusing ei the matter of how she would arrange w her new ho :se and was Interrupted by T Uncle Josh. " nd those house fixin's f reminds me," said he. "that you Y haven't pot your dishes yet. Now, al the most fam us stock in town, for bi extent, quality and completeness is in J. S. Le"ron , Co's china department. s There isn't positively, a thing in the a' line of china, crockery. glass or porce- p lain needed for use or ornament in ct any part of the house that can not be found at Letmon & Co., in Indefinite variety and at wonderfully low prices." They jlso have a splendid stock of 1 lamps of every description and cutlery ,G in abundance. Pollv's big order sug- it gested her thorough appreciation. w Again strolling down St. Louis 11 street. Polly cast some very wistfu and ei eager glances into V. J. Knobloch's cl music store, and with a coaxing smile is she told Uncle Josh all about her great P love of music. Uncle Josh was noticed tl to examine his bank book rather lugub- a riously. "Well, I guess I can stand it," b he said, "but what i'iane would you sl most prefer ?" "I think I'd like to s5 have a Fischeri or a Gnabe,' she quickly b answered "Several people have re- s1 commerded both tome for their purity 0 of tone, sympathy of touch, beauty of finish and a whle lot of other good ti points." "You couldn't ehoose abet- J ter instrument," repli -d the old man. " "and sure enough Knobloch isthe very V man to see about it," Polly selected . t the coveted piano, a.,d also a Singer a sewing machine and a big lot of sheet c music, while Uncle Josh wrote out a it check for the whole business, pleasant ly too--'c'ause he knew the price was i extremely reasonable. I At this point, somewhat to the con- a fusion of Charley, the old man indulge I t in a halfserblo', criticism of hit; person c al appearainc "*You are decidedly i off style for a townsman." sail he, V "and w--'d better go see Ellis Brand's e Sons. about some new duds. Te:at's an up o date place, where they under stand the changing styles and are noted for good 'its. and I bet : ou'll look more t like a ne .vly marrieI man when you t get togged out in Braud's suit." Ac- a cordingly, having Jound goods and t prices irresistible, Charles purchased a neat suit and then invested in a com- v plate oatfitof mens furnishings from a e late style hat down to sox, and he read- 1 ilv agreed that Uncle Josh took him to the right place when he took him to a Ellis Brand's Sons clothing depart ment. I "But say, uncle, aren't you about to forget another one of the greatest es sentials of our house furnishing?" Suddenly asked Polly. "You haven't said a word about mattings and carpets t yet." "Jes so. jes so." replied Uncle Josh, "It does beat all how you wi- I min folks can think of things. but I tell you it won't take me long to think of the store for carpets and mattings. Fact is. we're in it right now. Any thing from matting for the bedroom to the most elegant Brussels or Axmin ster for the parlor, you can get 'em here, and Ellis Braud's Sons don't charge fancy prices in that department either." Polly got something suitable for the parlor, living and bedrooms, and then turned her attention to rugs, curtains, table linens emt. for which this store is noted for giving extra choice values. "Well Seat my ?" exclaimed Uncle Josh, with a David Harum accent, as they reached the street, "I must run around to the Bank of Lafourche and get another check book. Come along with me and get acquainted with K. J. Brand the Cashier and stag, for of course you will do business with them and it is always more pleasant to be personally acquainted with the people you do business with. This bank is as solid as the base of the universe, is managed on safe cons_rvative lines. and has a strong working capital of 045,000 You will fiBad them ever ready to extend any accommodations comps tible with busines principles." "Guess [Ii Iope * a account with the Bank of Lafourche right away," re plied Charles, and he did. "Oh, say, Uncle," exclaimed Polly, "wherecan I go for dry goods ? This dress is hardly suitable, I must admit." "Well, my girl, if you want to select from one of the mos: popular establish meats in the city, I will direct you' to H. Riviere & Co., who carry a stock of dry goods that for variety and real value Is seldom seen outside the largest metropolitan cities. They have all the latest weaves in fashionable drges goods and you are sure to be golded rtght in your selections. You will iod Raviere & Co. pleasant to deal with and their employes polite and expert, while t he prices cannot be duplicated " It di., not take Polly long to tell a bar iain when she saw one. She got a andsome dress, with all necessary trimmings. and several other articles of ".fantastic disarray" so dear to the heart of every woman. "lla!t !" commanded Uncle Josh, as the party came in front of Tuibodeaux Drug Store. " Walk right in." "Why, Un:l,. were not sick, and- " ";uess 'but I suspect it won't be long before this young man begins to take an in terest in matters of paregoric and---" a "U-n-a-l-e: ! "We'll go in anyway! and get acquainted, besides Polly may ind some toilet articles she wants." Sure enough, before leaving he was loaded down with combs, brushes. face powders and several bottles of fin, perfumes. "Don't forget," added Un cle Josh, "to come here with your pres. eriptions. as F. J. Guillot, the manager, is a competent pharmacist who uses j none but pure and reliable drugs." "I would also like to make you acu quainted with Dr. O. L. Braud my dentist friend," said the old man. "If you ever have to supplement your na tural teeth." "Ugh I Don't you men tion false teeth to me." cried Polly. "I'11 never carry 'pely-lisa' In myr mouth if I go toothless." "Oh, as for that," laughed Uncle Josh, "if you'll only consult a good dentist in time, you can save the catastrophe. Dr. Braud, for instance, is wonderfully expert in saving natural teeth, and be has the skill and every modern mechanlcal ap- r pliance necessary to do his work with the least discomfort to his patients. Just come up to the office a minute, anyway its on the ground floor 'till I mse if my new teeth are finished yet." After this visit, Uncle Josh suggest ed a resort to some place of refresh ment. At the refreshment table the old man waxed philosophical. '-N ver Jr neglect your larder," said be. "Th t important adjunct to housekeeping r controls masculine temper. To that end you must patronize a grocer on whom you can depend for honest goods. t'hro h a long term of years I have found Denis Clement perfectly reliable. Ii You will find Denis a c ireful dealer, al always f :lly stocked with every possi r ble thing in the line of staple and fan cy groceries, fresh and first class, no shelf-worn goods there, while the ,rices are down to brass tacks To keep peace in this family get all your gro ceries of Denis Clement." "Oh me ! Oh my I" ejaculated Polly as they halted before a show window, "what a perfectly lovely slipper." I "Yes," said Uncle Josh, L. Philip Gaude's stock is alright. Go in, look it over and get acquainted. Pick out f what you want and I'll foot the bill." It might have been policy not to have extended that invitation, haf not Un cle Josh known what wise economy it Is to trade at L. Philip Gaude's for Polly found goods and prices 'o seduc tive that she purchased an outfit from a pretty slip: er to a handsome walking boot. Charley invested in gout's fit e shoes, while Uncle Josh indulged in a stout boot, with rubbers for the crowd. No one needing footwear can resist the styles and rices offered by L. P. Gaude, the shoe man. "And now, another place I wish to take you youngsters,'- quoh Uncle Josh as they reached the street again, "and that's to the Thibodaux Boiler Woa ks Co. Ltd', Your introduction .to town would not be half complete without, 'cause thats one of our prin cipal industries and a mighty interest- s ing plasce to visit. Besdes I ust hap pen to think that lye got a lot of mach in, ry that needs repairing and Ireckon I might as well attend to that now as a any time. It is pleasant to deal with the Thibodaux Boiler Works Co. 'cuse tleir greatest aidu is to give sa' isfHw tion ~o .very c'ts'omir, :tni h y ,io it want all the mone. a fello.v- got ei !. er. Walk right up that stairs th r. and I'll iatroduce yo: to the president made arrangements, to h.tre, his elan tation machinery repaitred they .ul took a stroll about the koiler Works and every one tried to see which cou d talk the loudest. While Uncle Josh was pondering where to go next, Polly suddenly ask ed: 'Uncle, where can I find the leading millinery establishment ?' . 'Just a block or two down St. Louis street," remarked Uncle Josh, 'and we will visit the Misses Webre, who, by the way, have on hand one of the completest stocks of millinery to be found in the city You can get what you want there, the latest styles and lowest priegs being their motto. The Misses We"Le's good taste and exper ience guarantees that when you have purchased of them you have the thing according to fashion and a satisfaction that your work has been done by a competent artist.' In a few minutes there never was a happier girl than Polly, for she got a"perfect dreamn' of an Easter hat, and the bill didn't scare Uncle Josh either. Polly also arranged with the Mides Webre to make her a new dress.' "Yum, yum," laughingly escaped Polly's rosebud lips, as sie glanced in to C. C. Johnson attractive confection ery storeand lee cream parlor 'Uncle * Josh, you know I've got aiweet tooth, and those home made candies look so nicee I just can't resist the temptation to go in." Charley here objected, 'cause he knew if Polly got into Joho son's confectionery store once, there's where she'd likely want to stay. He releated however, when Uncle Joe said, soda water my boygand cake," so in they went, and after regaling them selves in delieious 8oda water the girl oaded up oa ehodolates and bon boas _enugh to maike every tooth in the county ache. Poiey was a splendid judge of sweetmeats, and she indulged ina profuse compliment to what shbe found at C. C. Johnson. OoetiOaed os Iss page. The Servant' We Do Not Keep.
