Perhaps tile most trying ordeal a nam eau be called upon to pass through, i is lo can Vass a si range city tor ;«ti atli- I cie of undecided or unrecognized merit. I I On tin* same principle I hat a man I shivers before jumping into tile liver) early in Hie spring, the eanvrsser eon-I (‘hides that he will not enmmeiiee where' Ik* first intended to. hut rushes off to the bottom of the street to bra re up his I courage. This was exactly mu* experience. We.had intended to present our first card at Kelsey Simpson's, Gut as it looked ti little (hill about there, we reconsidered, and concluded to begin at the lower end of Commercial street instead. We happened to Im* somewhat acquainted wit Ii the inhabitants of the A. Sc \. railroad office, and anc rushed boldly in then* as though ii was the easiest-thing in the. world to bore people to death with a small gimlet. It is not our purpose, however, to give a minute description of our experiences and travels. Intl simply to note a few of tin* more noteworthy incidents. I here is a certain store on ('nmiiier-eial street that we were irresistibly convinced would he a bad plat e to go into. There was a peculiar twist to the sign. and the articles iii the window seemed pay, and that la* viewed lite increase of newspapers with an alarm only equaled by the mud and slack trade. 'Vt* .always somehow managed to think of important hilliness at the oilier when we came to thi* store, and persuaded ourself to believe that we hadn't time to reach ii for several days, hut finally we pulled up our coat collar, gruffed up a little*, and determined to beard the lion in his den. We asked ti genteel, pieas-ant-lnoking gentleman if anc could see Ila* proprietor, whereupon he said certainly. for la* was that party himself. C andidly, not to moralize at two great ti length, ant* think Ave have never met a tilter man. or oik* better calculated rn inspire a timid canvasser with centi deuce. Ile invited us lo come again; offered us a cigar; said any little expense we made him was all right ; >aid we were a goof! oui* (a pure fabrication, hut bless him for it!) and cordially shook hands at parting. There was another man we had anxiously Availed to call on. tor from his reputation aud appearance, we imagined lie would at. once Hike ii- into his confidence, and give us a column advertisement. But la* didn't. Ne said la* couldn't afford to invest ten cents a week in anybody's newspaper and kept on reading a paper la* had borrowed from a shoemaker next door w ho took all the papers la* could get. dust as sure as we pictured a man to he pleasant countenanced and jolly, he turned out to he as sour as an owl. and if la* took the paper at all.it w as with the distinct understanding that la* didn't w,ant it. ( hi tla* other lanai, if w e expected to call on an iceberg, we found him a thoroughbred, and immediately took a vow that we would cultivate his acquaintance. it is our experience that when a man treats you gent eely to begin aa itll. before knowing you business, la* will do the hest he clin for you, and regret that he canl't do more. But we are suspi-pieiotis of a man that limits up a pair of specs, and spells your card ovei carefully with the air of a man reading a death warrant. If he says that it's a nice day. or asks you how you like Ila* town, your east* is hopeless. and Victoria Woodhull Contradicted. Progress of the French Revolt Against Dictator Crant.
