The peddlers cum to our house about 2 o'clock Friday afternoon. I had lust got my dinner dishes washed up, and went to the back door to throw out the dish water, when I see a feller standin' in a wagon with some mules hitched onto it, a hammerin' on a stove and Josiah a standin' right by a watchin' on him. It came to my mind quicker 'n lightnin' that that was one of them steel range peddlers what sells $45 steel ranges for $69, an" jest because Josiah hadn't had his hair out yet this spring the feller took him for a Jay. So I says, says I, " Josiah, you'd better cum and get the milk for the celf," (wantln 1 to get him away, you know). But the feller made snob a racket that he didn't hear me. When he looked around again to see if I was a stand in' there, I jest shook my fist and, gave him a look which was a " warnin' sign" thane understood better'n the one he learned when he jined the Masons. Josia haittt no fool, an 1 all the steel range {peddlers in th tiul county couldn't tv made him sign n note for $69 fur a $45 stove or anything else Then the feller tried to sell me me one; bu jest sed that he couldn't drive them mules' fE the premises fast enough; that when 'I;"' 1 wanted an anvil I'd buy one for $8, and' \i vhen I wanted a steel range I'd-buy a > Buck's at Doxsee's hardware store fur $45, )' v jne that couldn't warp all out of shape af- ., er it had been used a little while, and then ,' I'have $21 left besides. I says: "You 4 'ellers don't pay no taxes in the county,' an' you don't care after a range is sold whether ^ t works or not, but you jest run over the country swindlin' the farmers out of $24 or f25, when they can't sell their corn for ten cents a bushel." I was a goin 1 to tell him a lot more o' things, but he whipped up his mules and got out. I heerd him say when Josiah let him through the gate: "Did^ your wife ever buy one o' them pianos; Mr. '-_ Alien!" An' Josiah up an' told him that I 5 took one on trial about two years ago' an' ' that I was sellin' eggs yet to pay up the J note at the bank. '' 1 thought so,'' says he,""" an' then he'tells Josiah that" as long as his , wife is alive he will be allrlght." Yes, it's lucky fur him that he got out when he did. Josiah says we will buy a Buck's steel range when we get one, and buy it .of. C. M. DOXSE&, Groceries Cheap for Cash.
