poor debts and long-winded accounts. We
expect to ro-orgunize tiie mercantile busi
ness in this valley, not to drum orlmnibug
the people by misrepresentations, not to
sell goods less than cost, but-to make a
uniform cash price on all goods, which
means 20 per cent, lower than any man
who buys on time can sell for.
Twenty thousand dollars worth of general
merchandise bought and sold for cash will
make this saving: 10 per cent, for tho
risk, ,6 per cent, discount, cash and 800
for hook keeper, making a saving of 84,
000. Does anybody blame us for starling
the bail a rolling?
