Sales Day Desired "
At r. meeting held in the court house
Wednesday evening at which every
business aud professional man of the
city was present it was unanimously
decided to hold a sale day in Dallas.
A committee appointed from the Dal

work on the proposition for the past
several weeks and had invited a num
ber of Albany boosters to he present
at the meting and give their views as
to the advisability of holding such a
day each mouth. A. K. Fisher, one of
the most enthusiastic boosters of that
city told of the success of the sale day
in their town. Several other business
men of Albany spoke favorably on the
question. The committee in charge of
the meeting will make their report at
the meeting of the Commercial club
next Wednesday evening and it will
then be decided whether Dallas will
hold a sale day each month or not.
