That January wns a good month
for the business men, regardless of
tho sovoro winter weather, Is gonor
nlly agreed upon. Morchnnts point
out howovor, that tho conditions

woro a year ago, but on top of this
thoro Is a healthier business growth,
mils Holm: I'nl. I.
"Wo havo obscivod since tho closo
of January business," said una mer
chant, "that business for last month
wns four times ns heavy as during

thoy woro n yenr ago, but Individual
observations show us that tho pro
hibition law has had a stimulating
effect upon our business. This Is
shown In our collections. Wo hnd
more bills paid during tho first ten
days of January than wo havo had
for more than a year. Peoplo who
boforo havo asked us for credit havo
niado their purchases with cash."
"I should bo bitterly opposed,"
s Id another merchant, "to u roturn
