The following form the Toledo Sxinday Jonrnal contains large chunks of good horse sense and the Argua therefore quotes ït : "I have registered a firm resolution never to buy a dollar's worth of goods from the inan who advertises at my door by rneans of haud bilis," said a weil joiowu gentleman yesterday. "It is the most abominable nuisance that home owners have to contend with at this time of the year. Every morning we must clean up a litter in the front yard left there by boys and men, with whom we can find no fault since they are hü-ed for a purpose and since the dnving away of one has no effect on the others who raay follow. They needlessly cali us to the door by ringing the bells ; they are impadent if we refuse to receive their bilis they pnt tbenj under the doors or leave them between the knob and the casiug, and ten times worse than all, they tramp across our lawns and destroy the grass. I have a lawn before my house to walk upon for myself and fatnily, and I do not object to the neiglibors tramping on it - it is good for the feet - and, of course, we caunot stop -the letter carrier and the paper boy bat that should be the t'nd of that sort of luxury. Peddler.-, bill distributors, sollicitors and the like should stay away or keep to the walks. I do not propose togivemy mouey to any firm whose hireings I must furnish with a soft place to walk upon and I have registered a firm resolve that if I look , at another one of those hand bilis, it will be to discover with what merchant I shall NOT do my trading in the future. "
