íiiiys siuce a geutleman trom a distant part of ;he county, remainiug in the city over night, tepped into one ot the business liouses, and after conversiug a wlule asked to see the Argus of that day. A sean h was made f or it, jut it could not be found. The gentleman suggested to the youug man in charge, who was a on of the proprietor, that perhaps his father lid not take the paper. The young man relied that he " did not kuow whether he does or uot, 1 never pay any attentiou to county lapers, and cousider tliem a d - d poor investiiünt any how." The gentleman asked the roungster what papers were his favorites, he dnswered by saying that he read the Chicago l'imes aud the Day's Doings. The gentleman was satieiied and asked no f urther questions. We think that the father does uot take auy one of the several county papers.
