saving aentlmont waa echoed with

The discussion of tho buyers are
educational, even when caught in
aaatchea whllo passing among tho
crowd. Cost of living Is the gen
rral topic and is not confined to
food prices but tako In the whole
scale of rents, freight rates, cloth
ing and fnrnlture. Ideas, varying
from conservative to radical, seem
to come naturally to tho surfaco In
tho environment of the market and
the buyers who arrlvo in automo
biles eom to have aa strong
opinions and feel as deep an interest
In tho cost ot living aa thoso havo
no cars to bring them.
