Everybody knows that they work in pnirs, nud when they meet a greeny, one braces him,, gets his name, and the town from which he hails, apologizes for mistaking him for Mr. Smith or Jones of Cohoes or Kenaka, nnd goes back and posts his pal, who usually waits around the corner for him. The pal then tackles the hayseeder, after consulting his guide-book, getting the population, bank presidents' names, and the names of a few lending merchants of the town the hayseeuer came from. Jt often happened that the countryman grew suspicious as soon as the flrst bunco man left him, after getting his name, and when the second tackles him shortly afterward .chock full of knowledge about the towii ho came from, would laugh at him, and if ho knew any slang at all would remark •Too thin!' "The now game is apt to prove more successful. Two men working together now learn the dumb alphabet before they start out. The first man to strike the stranger throws his left hand behind his back, and with the dumb alphabet telegraphs the stranger's name and whatever else ho has learned to his pnl, who is close behind him. In this way the second man is able to brace the stranger before the first man has done shaking hands with him, and there is no room left for him to; believe that the men are acting together. Then the llrst man apologizes anil walks away and the second man works the stranger, If he can, on the envelope; lottery, or sawdust game."— N. Y. Sun.

Hnrd-AVooU Floors. If you have hard-wood floors, or the simply stained and shellacked pine, the whole beauty and freshness of the room will depend on their being kept bright and free from dust; sweeping with a hair broom every morning and washing once a week will secure this, except in long dry spells, or if there is much coal dust in winter, when a damp cloth must follow the when the latter is insufficient to remove, the dusty appearance, but never in this or. any other case allow the damp cloth to replace a broom. Too many servants think they now! not sweep floors or oilcloth if they are going to wash it, the result is a cloudy, half-cleaned look. Once in a while, every fourth week perhaps, tho water used for washing stained or hard-wood floors should bo hot, and have a tablcspoonfnl of turpentine and the snme of oil in it, the '(.'loth be wrung out of this and used to wipe the floors.
