Tbe Peddling Noluuice. Peddling, selling from door to door things that people do not waut and would not buy if they were not pressed to do so by the imoonunities of agents who Got only exaggerate tbe necessity for tbe article offered but often plead their poverty or other personal reason why the housekeeper should buy, is an imposition upon the public and a downright nuisance that ought to be abated. Tbe purchaser is nearly always beaten. It is almost certain that tie article will not bo as represented, or, if it is, tbat it can be procured at any store in the city for do more money. And there is another reason why peddling should be abated: The merchants who pay tbe taxeB and support in no small degree tbe prosperity of tbe community are entitled to tbe custom of their fellow towns-men.

"Every girl makes np ber mind at some time in her life that she will never soospt any man wbo does not propose graoefully," said a man who was sipping claret with several others tbe other day. "He haa got to be folly togged out in a dress suit, and has got to kneel according to the Delsarte system.

I proposed on the way back, while I was trudging along a country road with my left hand on a horse's bridle and the other -well, never mind that. She accepted me, but she always aaid it waa a mistake. I refused to let her off,. though, or to propose again in a dress suit.

My wife and myself were in the back seat in a four seat sleigh, and in going over a bump of some kind the seat, witb oa in it was thrown off. We landed in a nice, comfortable snow drift, and the sleigh went on for a mile before we were missed. When it oame back for as, however, we were engaged. We weren't in a dignified position, but we were fairly comfortable and we had the seat still with as. Bines then my wife ha* frequently stated that she had intended never to accept a man unless be proposed in true novel form, but she did." "I'll give yon a summer story," said a young man bat recently married. "I did my courting in s place full of romance, but tbe proposal never earns at a romantio time; Is fast, I don't think a man ia responsible tor the time be propose*.
