Under the old system every ear of corn had to be handled at least three times. The ear Is first pulled off the stalk and thrown Into the wagon. Then It Is thrown from the wagon Into the crib.

No one saw him until lately when he walked in again and asked how much profit he had. "Twenty thousand dollars, or there- abouts," replied one of the partners, after the account had been checked up. "Sell my stocks and give me my prof- Its In cash," the customer directed, after a few minutes. As soon as the orders could be exe- cuted and a messenger returned from the bank, the partner counted out to him twenty one-thousand-dollar notes and some odd bills and change. He stuffed the money In his wallet and sat down. Then, after he had enjoyed for half an hour the sensation of carrying his profits In his clothes, he pulled out the money, linnded It back to the part- ner, and said: "Buy all those stocks back again'" —Wall Street Journal.
