So much has been said concerning the differ
ence in prices now and during the war, that we
believe the readers of the Mist will he interest
ed to know just how much goods have declined
since 191 Sand 1919, when most prices were
at their peak.
It is our opinion— base i upon the information we glean from the mag
azines and journals we read containing articles written by men of broad
experience— that the market is now pretty well stabilized, and therefore
people need have no hesitancy in buying their normal requirements.
