Good Form In Lawn Tennis. Eor'ru is the style in which the play? er moves, carries himself, and makes the strokes. Good form, I should ex? plain, is not grace; it is making the stroke in such a wav as to produce the greatest sffect with the least fric? tion. In making a stroke both feet seldom remain on the ground, and any violent effort will destroy the bal? ance of Use body, and thus make the stroke more uncertain and the recov? ery slower and niore difficult. This preservation of the balance, to me,seems the most important advantage of good form, but you place yourself at such a disadvantage in the recovery that you must injure your chances Vor the ucxt stroke. Et seems clear, then, that good form :s worth having:; that it can du no harm and may do much good; but how is it to be acquired? By watch? ing the best players, if possible, aud studying out the position of the feet aud body in making the different strokes. Also by the direct teaching of some player who has a good style h...

TRICKS in price marks. A Shrewd C:'..-.to?;er May Sometimes Lenrn tlio C?v.{ of the Goods Offered. Recently a western merchant camo to .a largi :! tt.1i house in New York to buy goods. He was known as a very shrewd and rather triclcy merchant, who had ;i fondness for learning the prices at the various houses and then trying to beat them down. Knowing this, '.he salesman who wailed ou him put an o.Mva p; ice on every article! that he showed him. In no case was the price made so large as to rouse his suspicion. Tho buyer seemed very disappointed, and his brow was knit in a way to show that he was very much puzzled over something. When he had gone away the clerk turned to the writer and observed: "i think 1 have blocked that fellow's' game very nicely. You saw what he was trying to do, didn't you?" ? The writer admitted bus ignorance. "Well," said the clerk, "no was try in? to discover our secret mark." As ho .spoke the clerk pointed to a little tagattached loa piece of cloth in his ha...
