TRUTH OF SCARGIT!
Mr. G .H. Bailes Has Returned
From Business Trip to New
Mr. G. H. Bailes, who has been in
New York City foi' past week, return
ed to the city Friday afternoon. Mr.
Bailies says that the stork , ' hoing
printed in the newspapers about tho
scarcity of certain lines ot merchan
dise, and the constant advance in
prices of many staple commodities ls
a stern reality. "And if there ever
did exist a sellers market," says Mr.
Balles, "that market exists in New
York today, and they make no bones
about telling you so.
"I secured some very excellent val
ues, however, In goods that we .were
needing and whjch we could not -have
touched with the proverbial ten Toot
pole hod I not been on the ground
myself. There's* no getting around
the fact, though, that we are facing
a condition such as we have nevei
gono up against before. Merchants
everywhere realize that this ls true,
and in a great many cases have ad
vanced their prices on goods that
show such an appreciable advance in
market. I do not know how we will
come out, but so far we have been
turning ours loose at old prices, which
In some instances are lesB than same
goods could be bought for today."
