qUKt. t littif.S IN PARIS. There are many trades,' professions, sal minor callings in the French capital which strike the English observer alo is fresh to the national manners and customs as very arioou. Charseter and elimate are largely atthe faondation of theseoeeliaritie, ind veral modes of getting aliving which ae pmlled in Puai would' not bear trane' plalatlon to England, although the attempt 1 oeeasionally made. Still the thing we atl here by the foreign name, which pro perly in the country of origin describes it, is atotally different article fron thie French prototype. It has the ames faint resem' blance to the latter as a reconstructed puri fied version of a boulerard vaudeville don to the racy piece as produced by the author in Puris without fear of Mrs. Grundy before hie eyes.

PARTHINGS AND THEIR USES. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 10 October 1914

-ARTHINGS AND THEIR USES. Everyone is familiar with the system in vogue amongst drapers for pricing their articles. There is always an odd farthing. Bundles of calico, for instance, lie at the door ticketed 21d. a yard; cheap shirts are in the window at is. I ?d.; hatsats as. Iid., and so on. You rarely ever see an even price, and the buyer scarcely ever gets the odd far. thing, the tradesman preferring to give pins or hairpins, lead pencils, needles, crotchet hooks, or some other trifling articles. This farthing system is not much more than twenty years old. It was introduced first in Scotland by a man who still lives and.wvho thereby received the name a "Farthing Johnny." This man, who be. gan life in a very humble' way,- now keeps a steam yacht, lives in a magnifi cent house, and is the owner of a castle as well as ofa large business. His firrt shop was just a room off the street that was entered by going down one or two steps. It was got up in the style of a grotto, and was main...
