Hard Bleu at huckstering.

--The City Council, by recent amendments to the market ordinance, have given huckstering a death blow if the ordinance is strictly enforced.--As amended, it says that no person residing within ten miles of the city shall offer for sale at a market, or in the streets, any butter, eggs, fish, fowls, fruits, vegetables, or other articles whatsoever, which shall have been purchased, raised, or produced within ten miles of the city, unless the same shall have been raised, produced or caught by them.--By this amendment the plan of waylaying market carts on the outskirts, of purchasing of commission merchants, and of forestalling all the necessaries of life, will be effectually checked; for hucksters cannot ride ten miles in the morning in time to attend market, and cannot sell by agents as heretofore. Let every citizen aid the police in the enforcement of this ordinance, and the producers will send in their products, sell them at fair prices, and thus save to the people the profits heretofore made by the hucksters.
