LIFE IS PARIS. Foel and Frevislone In the French Capital. A Paris letter to the Philadelphia Ledger says : All the shops being open on Sunday morning, in Paris, this pe culiar people, who live only from hand to mouth, first bought their breakfast, and then started ont to buy their din ners. They first invested in a little bunch of kindling wood to start the fire with, and then a little bag of charcoal to keep it going. The person who bought more than a day or two'i supply of fuel, would be looked upon as a foe to the state, so fixed is the publio habit of buying only enough for tbe day. The kindling wood and charcoal shops are as prominent and numerous along the streets as any others, and they display their goods in the windows as attract ively as possible, the kindling-wood neatly tied in small bundles and sold at one and a half cents apiece. If the fire wood is wanted by some aristocrat, who is bold enough to establish a fireplaoe, he pays for it at the rate of about two cents a s...

Statistics of the yellow fever are being mado up. The total number of deaths has been about 13,000. In New Orleans the deaths were a little less 'than 4,C00, the total number of cases a little more than 13,000. That is, about 30 per cent of the cases were fatal. Allowing the same proportion through out the South, tho whole number of cases must have been about 45,000. A Chicago wholesale grocery which, a few years ago, carried sixteen drummers at an expense of $-10,000 per annum, and did an almost profitless business, has abandoned the drummer system, spends one-fourth their cost annually in newspaper advertising, and divides the rest among customers.

In a certain big wholesale house down in Front street there is a young man employed, who, by dint of hard work and rathetr frugal habits, has managed to save tip soiao $200 from his meager salary. An acquaintance of his a man in mining circles said to him one day, about three months ago, " Jim, if you want to make something sorape some money together and buy a hundred shares of Sierra Nevada ; it will go up, maybe, one of these days, and you can get something pretty nice out of it."

lilt Henry A. Parsoni, Jr., Editor THURSDAY NOV. 14, 1878. The United States Revenue Collec tor in Clarion county is compelling lo cal granges of the Patron of Husband ry, where they buy their own supplies to take out a license, and the Porter township Orange of that county is re ported to have been particularly unfor tunate In the matter. A woman need ing alcohol for some medical prepar ation requested the Orange to get her four gallons. The liqntd was stored in the grange warehouse, and some boys, obtaining access to the building, drtw off some of the fluid for their own con sumption, and filled up the racum with water. The woman was fur nished from the watered tank, and the dilluted alchohol spoiled her mess for her, whereupon she came upon the Grange and recovered damages to the amount of $20. The Revenue Collec tor, getting wind of the transaction, required the Orange to pay a license or fine for dealing in liquor It looks very much as if another trans-continental railroad will...
