- Almoat daily ring the winter our 'merchante and business men have received calis from persons of both sexes, soliciting aid in some form. Last Friday afternoon a woman called at a grocery store ou Main street, and as she entered the door one of the proprietors, whose name we wiü cali Clark, thought to himself "there comea another beggar,1' and made up his mind to give her a cold shoulder. She approached the said propnetor, who at the time was making himself quite " busy " examining something about the store, taking a paper from her pocket, asked him ïf he " feit liberal to-day," and received a short, gruff reply " not a bit," he continued his " exammation.'' " Well, then, I will try and see what I can do with George." and proceeded to the opposite side of the store, and commenced to make purchases. Clark, thinking to keep an eye on the movements, discovered that the woman was a regular customer, proprietress of a large boarding house, that she had come to make an order, and before leaving had purchased a wagon load of supplies. He says hereafter he will be more cautious with süpposed beggars.
