DANGER OF FRAUDS.
We have warned the peo-
ple so long and so frequently
about aiding the procurer oí'
fraudulent notes, that some
begin to think that it is our
chronic hobhy. But let us
now warn you against another
species of fraud which has
been lately practiced in Bos-
ton, New York, and mav be
in Chicago, If it has not yet
infested the latter city, it soon
will, as it has been eminently
successful in the East, es-
pecially Boston. The prac-
tice is for a band of swindlers
to assume a firm name, differ-
ing probably only in a single
letter from a legitimate busi-
ness bouse of -good credit.
They then print a lot of letter
heads and circulars, which
they send out far and wide,
wanting to buy the farmer's
produce, such «shutter, cheese,
eggs, etc., and offering more
than the current prices, or
more than honest men can
afford to pay. In case a cus-
tomer should become inquisi-
tive and want to know their
standing, they are always
ready with Dun's or Brad-
street's Repot ter, to which
they refer them as to their
standing, always pointing to
the name of the firm, which
they attempt to imitate with-
out being really it. But both
firms are so near alike that
without care they will deceive
any one. In this way they
establish their credit, and
have vast amounts forwarded
to them to sell on commission,
or remit the pay if they take
it themselves. Tho induce-
ment of higher prices tempt
many to be caught in their
tap. Hut they never pay
anything. When they can
not ri.sk business any longer
in one location, they disband
and leave, to appear suddenly
in another city under another
name, but always as near as
possible to that of a credit-
able establishment. The Bos-
ton Ploughman says one of
these fraudulent concerns at
that city swindled the farmers
of thrtt region out of about
$1,900,000. They operated
in and about Boston, under
various names, for about seven
years. It is understood that
they have come West to grow
up with the country.—Iowa
Of the riches the showing
of all the pleasures we enjoy
we can carry no more out of
this world than out of a dream.

THE GOOD OLD MOTHERS.
God bless all the good old mo-
thers. I never see an old lady
sittinu; in tho armchair at her ease
but I think what storms have pelt-
ed into that chcery face without
souring it. It may lie that a man
can go "through more exertion than
Woman, but at least it remains true
that he cannot without losing his
laughter, his gentleness, and trust
in some kind of God. Yet how
ready do you find a frail old mother
whose spirit has been worn thread-
bare and unlovely by what she has
endured, A sweet old mother is
common; a sweet old father is $ot
so common. As thy day so tby
strength of love, tby richest of an
inexhaustible benevolence and hope
and faith. This is more apt to be a
w<5manV* history than a man's.
