'' Of worse they didn't bring half their value.\ Is it not M. de Boohefonoald, who sayi that\ in the mlsfoirtnnes of our best friends, there is something not altogether disagreea- ble to m?\ And there is a deal of truth la the saying of this keen French satirist Ths Bemadottes were rained out-and-out; and their sooiety-friends talked of the failors for an hoar, and then forgot that snob • family had ever been. \ I think I shall go to the auction,\ said Mrs. Prioe. \ I am told that great bargains are to be had, sometimes at auction t and I always ooveted that sweet old task cabins*, with its plash lining! and delicious oarv- Ings.\ I \Pshaw!\ said Mr. Prioe. \ Mrs. Bernadotte gave two hundred dol» laxs for ii. in Ban Franoisoo,\ said Mrs. Price. \ It's a deal too big for our rooms,\ said Mr. Prioe. '' But we don't always expect to live la this little oramped-ap plaoe,\ aaid Mrs. Prioe, with a contemptuous glanoe around the room which, although snog and ooay In the most superlative degree, was not what one would oall absolutely spacious. \ I don't approve of seoond-hand things,\ •aid Mr. Prioe, shortly. \Andyou are quite right,\ said Aunt Clarissa, the elderly maiden relative whose opinion always carried weight, in oons*- quenoe of the money she had to leave. Mrs. Prioe was silent. She did not ven- ture to rebel against the publio opinion ol the family ; bat all the aame, her mind wat made up—for Mrs. Prioe was one (ft those women who always want their way la UWs things and big i and who contrive to have <t, too. \ I will go to that auction,\ said she to herself, \ in spite of what Prioe and Aunt Clarissa say !—and I wUl have that darling of a teak-wood oabtnet I\ Mr. Prioe, meanwhile, was chuckling to htmselflf a* he rode down town In the Ele- vated Boad.

'' Your drawing-room is ov*r-furnl*b- ed already.\ And Aunt Olariasa nailed the matter—in >r own opinion at least—by making aa ap- pointment for Mrs. Prioe to spend the day with a cross old relation at Yankars, on thai sspeolal Wednesday.

Then ha drew the UttUshovsl over tt» heap, smoothing it oat so that its oolor was pure white. A like quantity from an. other bag, when smoothed beside tha first, looked yellow, with very faint specks in it. When seen in separate bags ths oommon aye oould not detect any different between th* two qualities. 41 Th* first is roller flour and the other U the old style,\ the dealer explained. \ Ooi la free from dirt and husks; the other U not. In the good old days we hear about th* farmer used to sarry his wheat to miU, where it was weighed, elevated into a bin abov* a pair of stones, the upper one of whloh revolved horizontally, arid was ground. Tho meal was then sifted through •Ilk oloth placed on revolving reels, and th* product WM flour mixed with partloles ol bran, flue dunt from the wheat bin, and oth«r dirt which accumulated la the bins in >ys bettor loft to the imagination,, There * *1»K> a quantity of rye, oat, and cookie Hour in it. Horneiui to separate these ob- >ud grains and loose partloles of dirt hftTo boon devised, but they are more or M Imperfect. K few years ago a man in- mtod a mnohino for oloaning the grains of wheat, whloh, an now used, L» aa near per- fect M can be imagined. In a perpendicu- lar ihell of «U)«1 plate revolves a reel oom- pomvl of a vertical shaft, with arms extend- ed to within a fraction of an lnoh of tha < shell. The ends of the arms are oonnected by strips of metal. The oy Under of steel is perforated with rows of narrow slate around It* olroumferenoe and along Ita full length. The wheat passes over a oouple of short toreena through a blast of air in a spout, and then drops down on to the head of ths r*«l, which ia either doma or dish shaped. Tbe reel revolves from 360 to 600 times a lnute. \ The grain flias (rut against the shell of sUel and drops of its, own weight between tha shell and the flying beaters. Centrifu- gal foros presses each kernel against ths ih.ll, and th* beaten whirl it round and round a thousand time* bafor* It finally drop* out at the bottom and ia conveyed away In a spout against another ourrent oi air. As th* grain flies round with the beat- m th* smut balls and th* little fin* beard found on th* grain ar* out off against thf sharp *dges of th* perforations of the shell, and are blown out through th* perforations, and ar* carried away by a cwsnt of air. When ths grain finally drops out it Is poL Ished all It sblaes, and when it is ground Ih* mlllar has nothing to contend with bat the husk, or bran, in his efforts to mak* whit* flour. Half a doasn variatUs of that* ' smut machln*s' ar* mads, and ths owners of fit* patents ar* growing rich.\ IM8AHB OT A LOVER'S DEATH.

HELPED ROB HIMSELF, i L*elu da While tke Thief . V9 and Oarta Off Us Iteaps. • \Talkabout cool thieving operations,\ Wd a wholesale druggist of this dtjf, \ but what do you think of a man standing by and seeing his property oarried away in bulk right before hi, eyes, and neve* know- Ing it? Well, I did that very thing one day last week, and found it out only yesterday. Our house had ready for shipment to differ- tnt customers in the West several oases' ol opium, quinine, and other valuable drug*, worth in the. aggregate several thousand dollan. They were on the sidewalk ready to be carted to the freight depots. I was standing in the door, when a two-hone truck stopped in front of the store and backed up to the sidewalk. It had- our name on the side. There was no one lint the driver, and as one or two of the oases were quite heavy, he asked me to have some one from the store help him load ftwnn, I oalled a porter, and he helped the truckman put all the good* on the trok. The driver drove away. This week we received in- qolriea from all the oonsigneea t$ to the goods, and inquiry on our part eUcited the unquestionable fact that the track was sot ours, and that we had aided thieves to phn, deros. There seems to be no doubt that the wholesale drag houses of this, dttes are being systematically robbed by a gang of thieves, who are in oott the olerks,-poften, and other No other arUde of merohandise easily or profitably They oanoot be ide of these goods offer large vain* wtfeuwtt balk.
