A Chance for Saving.
“A penny saved is a penny earned,” is one
of Poojr Richard’s proverbs, worth remem
bering by old and young. Any of our read
ers, when tempted to form the habit of smok
ing, will do well to think how much they can
save by keeping out of the habit. An ex
change furnishes the following moderate
estimate of the saving :
A young gentleman of our acquaintance
concluded to commence smoking cigars on
his twentieth birthday, but resolved that he
would never exceed eight per week, nor pay
more than ten cents each for them, Wo ask
ed him to reckon how much money would be
saved by the time he was sixty, if he should
place the eighty cents per week in the sav
ings bank every six months, and let it lie
there, drawing seven per cent, interest. Be
ing quick at figures,he made the calculation,
and found the amount to be eight thousand
three hundred and eleven dollars. “Put
that in your pipe and smoke it.” young

The Wheat Crop of Europe.
The Mark Lane Express, in its weekly re
view of the breadstuff's market, says:
“Bad weather has prevailed throughout
the past week, but our farmers have kept a
sharp lookout, ami have secured their crops.
There are no reports of sprouting, though
much wheat was stacked in poor condition,
in consequence of high winds and low tem
perature. The same weather has ruled on
the Continent. This will bring good samples
to the front, an 1 increase the value of old
stock. There is little difference in prices
since last reports, although the tendency is
downward. France is sending back here the
cargoes shipped hence. The crops here and
in France are mostly secure, and the depen
dence of both countries on foreigners is ma
terially lessened. The latest estimates put
our crop at seven per centum below the aver
