A mean ri.n cau pay thietia iatba
con at fifteen cents a - p6und and
loaur at fekir when the cash would
buy one at ten and the other at
three, and he can cheat then twen
ty-five per cent. in the weights and
they will never know any better
and never care. The Lord never
made such an easy, unsuspecting
creature as a free nigger. There
are white men who take advntacge
10f them and cheat them and gnt
their labor for their vittles and
clothes, but the darkey is sure of
a living anyhow, for if he cant
earn it he can steal it, so it is al
-right anyhow and the races keep
:about even. Some f armers are
tricky, too, when they take chick
tens to town the eickly o0nes are
sure to go, and the host potatoes
are put eu top of the basket. The
riThest pine is on the outside of
the load, and some rotten corn will
-get in the sheller when the meal is
for market. The merchant has
his tricks too. ie will bait you
with something for .less than oost
and make it up on something else,
at fifty per cent. To keep UJ) with
hard compoetition he will sell you
shoes with pasteboard soles and
nails that break in two under the
hammer and shoddy goods of all
soi-ts, for his customlers wants Cv
erythiag at the lowest price wheth
er it is good .or bad,add iU isbuck
le and tongvue whether the mer
;ch-ant eCaI get ahead ()I his custom
ers or they get aheiad of him. )tie
thing is;certa.*in, when the nierchnt
forgets to charge anything it is lost,
forever lost. If he makes a ink
take in change or weight or mtas
ure he hears of it if its in his favor,
and if it is the other way maybe
he dont. I dout kiaw for certain.

Wheu I was a young man I was
a merchant for several years, and
Mrs. Arp, that now is, used to
come and trade with me and I fell
in love with ter across the counter,
and I waA sorry the counter was
as wide as it was, and she was sor
ry too I reckon, and I showed my
devotiofpo tenderly and said such
sweet tia gs that site used to come
most every day and she done all
the famrily'trading and some for
the nabors and never priced any
thing but just said ,o many yards
or eo many pai-s and I had liked
to have got rich off of her before
I married her, which was all right
I reckott for it kept the money in
the family and no loss on our side.
A store is a good thing to marry
on, that is a dry goods store, but
the young man had better own it
if he wants to make a sure thing
of Ais girl. After he marries the
next best thing he can do is to sell
out his store and quit that sort of
business, for a merchant's own
family account breaks hi n oftener
than anything else, for it is so ea
sy to send to the store and it does
look so much like that things out
of one's own store don't cost any
thing. I never kept store but six
ionths after I got married, but
ime and my wife have kept other
people3 stores a going for the last
thirty yearA, and they have done
pretty well considering.
But the biggest fraud or all is
'n the narrying business,, and the
man is guilty of it heap oftener
than the woman. I'm not talking
about the regular society woman
in town or a city for I don't think
that anybody can cheat her, she
is generally an ieeburg in a passel
of fine clothes., ani she dont know
how to do anything but read nov
els and visit, but the average girls
who imarries for love is ofteier fool
ed than the average man. The
time &asedl to ls when a man dident
begin to forget his wife until he
had been married tent or fifteen
years, but now he forgets her in a
few mnuths and wort stay home of
nights if he can help) it. 'Some
