Colman & co., "Per C."
I am Louis Colman, half of the firm
tong and well known in the country as Col
man & Co. I want to tell you how I work
ed my way to this position.- At the age of
fifteen, 'with my free consent, my father
signed articles which ;bound me to give to
- William R. Lee, cabinetmaker, the Jailor of
three years. In lieu' of 'hoard, clothing,
etc., the usual equivalent given, I was to
receive one dollar per week, and at the ex
piration of the . three yedra fifty dollars in
money. My home in the mean time was
with my father, who boarded and clothed
A backward look over those three years
seems pleasant to me. I suppose - many
times during my apprenticeship I longed
for more liberty, more leisure, and more
money, or something different rom what "I
had. I should hardly:have been an average
boy if I had not; hut in the main I was tol
erably contented_
So eighteen came. The heir of an Eng
lish estate, on the happy day when he was
to take possession, could . hardly, I. _think,
have felt happier' than I. Upon. Xki morn

as Lreplied: . .

litf:Come to the office after hours," he said,
and turned away.
- n the office at night I met my father,
w o with me saw the writings canceled. I
th n received Dfty dollars, shook hands
wj i th Mr. Lee; and turned to leave the office.
' One 'moment ," said Mr. Lee. "Have
y u any plans for the future?"

`No, sir," I said promptlY; "to4aorrow
3 y eighteenth birthday, and I want to

_te smiled a little gravely, and then said:
' Well, fake a week lo think of nothing,
then cope back to me."
utside I found my fellowiworkmen wait
' to give me a cheer ,t for it was customary
ong us on such occasions to have a gen

I knew I could not. I said so. So again
I WAS back in the familiar place, with three
pars before me, but they proved unevent
ful; save as the first links which- connected
me with the firm of Colman 'ct Co.
Tile-first duty assigned me in my new po
sition was the opening of some letters, and
they first letter I opened flaunted the bill
headnf ." Colman & Co." My • own name!
Just,so, sonic day I should send out large
sheets and bills with just such a heading.—
Sol jellied an air castle. But this letter
contained' esides the order some reference
to a "superior casket," and a slip from a
paper making public announcement that
the:decease of Colman, of the firm of Col
man &Co would not alter i the business ar
rangements of the firm. Ito would still be
carried on at the - old stand, with the same
name. Signed, Colman & Co:, "per Q."
.T. handed the letter to Mr. Lee, who said:
"See to your - order immediately, make a
note of the reference to casket, and file the
letteron hook C."
He 'rose, took down a paojiage of letters,
and said to me:
"kook at these curious signatures. Col
man :always signed like that, with a long
coil. The son has, I suppose, inherited or
acquired the same curious coil to his signa
ture." • • '
-I reti*ed answer to the letter, and when
finished' 'a 'sudden fancy possessed me to
make- of shy "per C." the same fanciful
coil. After a few endeavors I succeeded in
doing thia[and signed Win. R. 'Lee, "per
C:,'? making of my "C." an excellent irni
taticin of the long-coiled 'C, appended to
Colman & Co.
Forthe three succeeding years nut a monin
elapsed that we did not receive an order of
some kind, large or small; with the same
Colman Co., "per C.," and then the long
coil; which I as invariably answered with
Lee, " per C.," and a flourish of the aunts
around my C.
I found myself at my majority in what I
thought then, and think now ,
an enviable
State. I had at twenty-one a air addrqss,
good health, good habits, a goodlrade, an
average education, moderate ambitions, and
a willingness to work, and.three hundred
dollars a year in ready money. When my
time expired with Mr. Lee he again asked
me my plans for the future. Though this
time I had many add many a one,.they were
very indefinite, and none of them practical.
Mr. Lee, as before, gave advice and oppor
tunity. He sent me upon business of his
own through different parts of the State,
saying, " Look out for yourself as you go,
and if you find the right business point, let
me know."
I liked this change. I was making a "al:
uable acquaintance with business men and
the country ! and for a year longer found
nothing which made me desire a change.
One night I took a branch road and a
new route to reachl a certain point. Start
ing .with (a most unusual thing for rae) a
racking headache, which the jar and rattle
of the cars so Increased that by ten o'clock
I determined to ask'for a lay-over ticket , at
the next station, I stopped not to ask where,
but threw myself into an omnibus, and ar
riving at the hotel, into a room and bed as
quickly as possible. :Next morning I awoke
with my head clear, but with a feeling of
exhaustion that decided the to remain where
I was that day.
After- „breakfast I sauntered out / going
slowly up the principal street, gazing idly
at the signs, dreamily settling myself with
a home, a business, and a name;, and my
sign would read—l started, there it' was—
" Colman it Co." Yes, I read it aright, it
was Colman & Co.
" Is this Abhetowit?" I said to a man who
was padaing. He looked bard at me, but
said civilly enough, "It is, sir." I crossed.
the road quickly, curious to confront the
bona fide personages who bad so many
times appeared to me under the jagged sig
nature of "Colman & Co:" and the singu
larly-coiled "per C.V
I entered the open doot and strolled thio'
the rooms. Nothing but a nice lot of cabi
net warerooms, with the arrangemahts, per
haps in better taste than is usual in 'eliches
tabliahments. ' A quiet,' light-liaired young.

outer rooms, then' asked if he could be of

"'Step this way." ,
Beyond the salesroom a green-baize door
opened, into a room about twelve feet square
neatly carpeted, and furnished with desk,
chairs, 'and sofa. Occupying the room wefe
two young women. One, at the desk, did
not raise her bead'at my entrance. The
other arose and bowed with an air of a busi

was that tbe person I Wished particularly to

the ledger. The woman sitting opposite
me, with a kept-back smile in. her eyes and

Mr. Seward, speaking of the great wall
of China, 101611'1 lie examined during his
trip to the East, says: The C,hinese, have
been for at least two or three thousand years
a_wall-making people. it would bankrupt
Yorker Paris to build the walls of the
city of Pekin.. The great wall of China is
the wall of the world; it is forty feet high.
The lower thirty feet is of hewn limestone
or granite.. Two, modern carriages may
pass each other on the 'summit. It has a
• parapet throughout its whole length, with
convenient staircases, buttresses, and garri
son houses at every quarter of a mile; and
it runs not by cutting down hills and raising
valleys, but over the uneveg crests of the
mountains and down through.their gorges;
a distance of -a thousand miles. Admiral
Rogers and I calculated that -it would cost
more to build the g,reat wall of China thro'
its extent of one thousand miles than it has
cost to build the fifty-live thousand miles of

of - printing, a newspaper was issued in Bos
ton. It lived one day, and only one copy is
known to have been preserved. That copy
was discovered by the historian of Salem,
Rev. J. B. Pelt,'itt the Colonkal State paper
office, in London, while engaged in
earches relating to tie history of his own
city. This pioneer i f American journalism
was published-by 13 njamin Harris at the
London coffee house, Boston, and was print
ed for him by Richard Pierce, on'Tlimsday,
the 25th •of September, 4 1090, nearly two
centuries after the' discovery of the New
World by Columbus. The paper was print
ed on three pages'of a folded sheet, leaving
one page blank, with two, columns to a
page, and each page about eleven inches by
seven in size, Harris pr • posed to issue his
paper once a month, r oftener if there
'should be a "glut of ccurrences." His
first : and, as it turned out his. only number,
contained several columns of home and for
eign gos Sip without a word of editorial com
ment. Unfortunately for the success of his
undettaking, he printed one or two items
of local and military news which set the
official busy-bodies in a ferment of indigna
tion! The legislative authorities solemnly
determined that the paper came mit contra
ry to law, and .that it contained " reflec
tions of a very high nature." `To prevent
Mr. Harris from issuingla second number,
they forbade " anythingin print without li
cense first obtained from those authorized
by the Governineut to grant the same." In
this ,way the first American newspaper came
to grief, and but fur the accidental preser
vation of a single ,copy in London its very
name would have passed into oblivion.

Of a Cap of. Coffee. : '
It has been trilthfully ' said that even in
these enlightened days, and in the lands
most blessed by the influence of civiliza
tion, there are thousands upon thousands of
persons born into the world who live long
lives and then go down into their graves
without ever having tasted good coffee.--
There ate many reason§ for this, and the
principal one of cdursn, must he that :.-e
faw.porz us tchow how to make good coffee.
And yet there have, been thousands of reci
pes and irections' published which: teachus
how to ake good coffee by boiling it; by
not boili g it; by•cortfining the essence and
aroma; by making it in an open , vessel; 1 . 3 y
steeping it; .by not steeping. it; by clearing
it; by not 'clearing it; by grinding it fiNte;
by grindie it coarse, and by many other
methods of ..k osed to each . other and •to led
these. No: we do not intend to try-1-6 •tell
anybody ho to make good. coffee, but. We
just wish t 6 ay a word about the treatment
of the coffee after it is made. And Oft - thie
treatment de ends its excellence,lbrewAt its
you' may. The rule is simple: 'never clecg:nt
it! , Whatever else you do ahont it,' bring it
to the table in the vessel in -which it was
made. A handsome urn dr. gorgeous coffee

if itil i is considered more desirable to have
the pot look well' titan to have the coffee,

La l the town of Montour there lived till

aged abdut eighty, who has lived in the
State of New York, in the counties of Ca

and Montour, and always lived and died in
the house in which he was .born. During
the greater part of his life he was a wealthy
man, but in the latter part of his life be
came poor, demented, anti:a miserable crea
ture. When in prosperity he put his pen to
too many men's paper, had, to pay, and
hence his last end. He was a kind, good
hearted man in all the relations of life, loved
home and quiet, and perhaps was never 20
miles away from home in his life, except
when in company with J. W. Lee and oth
ers they went to the wilds of Pennsylvania
to hunt (in the language- of Lee) bars,

At a recent gathering, where isearlyt_"-
the speakers were practical farmers, and
most of them engaged in making milk One
of them spoke earnestly and 'decidedlyja
favor of soiling the stock: lib opinion_
was formed after grazing his cows for ,yalis
upon natural pastures, upon pastures form
ed by ploughing mowing lands and then re
seeding, and then by cutting the. orage and
feeding it out in the barn. He had no doubt
but the latter • course would -be genereft
cheaper, and in the long run, easier, and
that it would produce more milk than: either
of the two former modes.
IBy proper care in feeding-and giving tie'
mock opportunity for exereis. at suitaliie
times, the health of the stock could be phi
served just asperfectly as it when the,f l
run in pastures. Fed and tended in the
barn, they will get clean water regular
and abundantly, and their meals at 'regular
intervals. That will 'be a great gain
many pastures where!, water is taken froto
stagnant pools—sometimes in an off'ensi've
condition—and in other cases, where"they
can get no water, good or bad. -• . -
At the gathering of farmers at LOwell i
last September, Mr. H. Sedgwick, ofL Corn-.
wall, Ct.„referring to. he short feed of the
fall of 1971, said:—
" Our farmers all deckle tin* will not_ g,p
back to.the old way' of. feeding stock.. We
cut up our straveand everything available.
Many of us have adopted the plan of steam
ing the food for our cattle, and we ate sat
isfied from the experiments we have made
that we save a third of our provender hy
steaming it. As a sample of what this
manner of feeding stock will do, I will re
late .an instance of a , young man, who, a
year ago this last spring bought a farm of
eighty acres of land tpr $ll,OOO. The farm
then kept eleven cows, four or five yearlings,'
and a horse or two. The young man took
hold of that farm and immediately put in
fourteen acres of sowed corn: He increased
the stock to twenty-five cows, and kept _
them on twelve acres, feeding them the
sowed corn, and also cutting his oats green
for food. His receipts the first year were
over $B,OOO. This year he has summered
on that same farm twenty-seven cows, and
he told life the other day that ,his twenty
seven =cons would average him $lOO each
froth the profit on milk."—N. E. Farmer. .
Starting Early Potatoes.
A correspondent of the Cottage Gardener
says: "To have a few early potatoes I hate
found the following system to answer well.
I plant my potato sets in pots, say about five
or six inches in diameter; the soil I use is s
pure, turfy, maiden loam and charred earth •
with a little soot. Being in pots they can
be started whenever there is a little heat.
While they are coming on in the pots, leaves
and a little manure are put up in a roun d
heap to ferment, then put into a pit or frame;
after the bed is i,n a fit condition of heat,
the surface is cpvercd eight, inches deepwith.
With. half rotten leaves. When the heath
up the - pots may be plunged in this material,
and the plants kept in the sane pots till tlip
young tubers are the size of large peas or
small marbles. This can easily be eager.-
tained by turning them out of the pots. .1
consider the chief advantage derivable'
from this 'system is, that 'as they are confid

Planting in the Garden;
About the epd of February or beginning .
of March, in this latitude, we often, get a
few very warm days, when the citizen fresh
to the country feels sure the - spring is come;
and is very anxious fox fear the acceptable`
time should pass away and he not have his
trees and ,plants, fidweri3 and vegetables,
put in before it is too late. The old hand,:
whoha's beecirne a veteran in garden-work.,
will need no hint from us that this is all
wrong; but there lie so many new corners_
into the field and garden every year that we
are sure our words of advice will not'
thrown away.
Nothing should on any account beset out
in spring until the ground has become so
dry that it will crush under the heel - when
trodden on. Besides this all' danger of a
return of frosty Weather should' certainly
he overbefore much;in the.way of planting
be attempted.
Even tho;igh the ground be tolerably dry .
and warm, and in general geed cOnditlika*
when the seeds or plants are put out, they
are \not always the first to bear over those
often sown later. A chill often stops growth.
