He’d a Critic at Home. —At an auction sale of miscellaneous goods the auctioneer put up a wolf-skin dressing gown, and invited bids. An old man inspected it closely, seemed to think that there was a bargain in it, but yet he hesitated to bid. ‘ ‘ Don’t you want that 1 asked the auctioneer. “Yes, kinder,” was the reply. “ Then why don’t you bid and take it V’ “ Well, I’ve bought heaps o’ things in dry goods and so on,” slowly rejoined the old man, “and I never yet took home anything that the old woman thought was worth the price. If I got that ’ere robe for a song, she’d grab it up, pull at one end, chaw at the other, and call out ‘ Cheated again, mor’en half cotton.’ That’s the reason I darn’t bid.”
