Well that Ends Well" and in this
ease his words apply with iho fitness
of intimate knowiede. On the day
mentioned Mr. llolloway lo k the
bou-ehoid coal oil can to a paocery
store, ordered it Tilled and S'.-nt up to

For several days there li;;ve been
three very srarrt. swell yountr fellows
about town selling rugs and clocks.
They visited the bouses and when in
vited in ;uid ofTereda ehuir they would
make themselves as agreeable as pos
sible and endtavor to inffratiut.i them
selves into the good grtices of the
ladies of the house.. In most places
they would st;;y until they wore their
welcome out and it ws a grreat relief
to the ladies when they departed with
out the embarrassment of being in
vited to leave. Tney seemed to think
'.t was smart to steal photographs of
youDg ladies whenever they found
an opportunity. It is said, a ho, that
tney made themselves odious upon the
streets and were not slow in offering
insults to ladies. Last niyht several
young men, nmong them brothers of
young ladies whose photographs had
been taken, met these would-be lotha
rios and informed them that the ohoto
graphs must be immediately returned
and that their undecorous conduct
must cease under penalty of receiving
a large invoice of biack eyes and other
evidences of their, and the young
ladies di-pleasui e. The chotographs
have bet n retui ned nnd it is hoped the
"hot"' hoys have inade their escape
from the e.tv.

A few days ago one of the men em

bottle, containing a note saying that
he was iiuxii.iH to correspond with a

ages of twenty-oae and thitty, with a
view to matrimony. If the notehould
