"Father," said the young man, "your 'business has always been one of large sales and small profits, has It not?" "You know what I advertise, my son; I buy everything direct from the manufacturer, and I sell to the consume? at exactly seven and a half per cent from cost. Such a business I believe to be as beneficial to the public as any philanthropic institution. The people should purchase the necessities of life at a margin above first cost sufficient only to pay for the actual handling of the goods. That is a fixed principle of mine."

Dickens, who made his presence felt wherever he wandered, sometimes wrote upon window panes and at a spelndid old coaching Inn now almost a wilderness on the Great North road, not far from Pontefract. is a very clear signature of his on the, dining room window pane, this same signature having been written, along with scores o others. In the presence of the late landlord. Other signatures on the same window are those of David Roberts, Macllse, Warren of "Ten Thousand a Year" fame, Brunei and G. V. Brooke, the actor. In an old hostlery In Fette lane at one time a Dickens window signature was highly prized and often sought out by strangers and on this same pane some wag said to be the late H. S. Leigh had written: "Should you ever chance to see A man's name writ on the glass, Be sure he owns a diamond And his parent owns an ass." Near Bately, in Yorkshire, a poetical lament written on a window pane by a lady who was kept locked away from her lover many years, was sold to a customer introduced by the late Lord Houghton for a sum of 20, this being at the rate of more than a sovereign and Mr. Woods, the celebrated auctioneer, in 1890, sold a window sig- -' nature of Tom Moore, the poet, for 50.

There Is a feeling In the country that this is a work that should be attended to, and that too without delay. Not that we are in danger of immediate war, but the vary fact that our coast cities are so de- -; feriseless might prove the occasion of a, war whei strong defenses would bring peace. Any nation wishing to punish the United States for an alleged injury would figure out that all they would have! to do would be to send a fleet to some; one of our great cities and demand a ransom. The senator also points but that we should have proper defenses for the sake of our new' and costly navy, : Cornelia Weekes, widow of a Brookas there might cpme a time when a portion of our fleet, being suddenly out- lyn undertaker, died on Saturday, Feb. numbered and would need 8, at her home In Brooklyn, aged 70 a temporary harbor of refuge.
