But many of our farmers buy goods of various kinds of those traveling fellows, many of whom are sharpers and would not hesitate to change an order for a bilí of goods IrrtO a proniicsory note, and we Dtlgbt add that it isoften done too. Our merchants have good honest goods for which they pay, thev have good stores and are accommod fating and sell at a small profit, and tlio.e 9trangcr8 Can not afford to trayel around the country and sell at a less price If you buy of tlicm you are su re to get bit in some way, and our adviec is to deal only witli tliosé you kuow and those wbo are your Iriends and are willing to make right anything which proves to be different from what it is represented to be.
