THE THINGS THAT SELL
Our long - experience in the Mercantile Business has
taught us that it pays best to buy ,the kind of Merchandise
that sells-readily to our trade and not buy the kind that would
sell in New York or New Jer sey.
Now we know that we have hustling, thrifty people in
Pickens county and we are all proud of the progress that has
been made, especilly with the farming people in the last ten
years, bnt we want to make a little suggestion right here that
might be of so.ne help topush the good work along.
A lot of our people have an idea that they can make good
money, raising cabbage, I ish potatoes, etc., and selling them
to our small towns. Well, such a business located near large
cities pays well, but it is not very profitable our country. We
know everybody should produce such thihgs at home for their
own special use. But it is a loss of time to grow such crops
for profiE here.
Our Mr. Plumer Hyde bought ten bushels of Irish pota
toes from Mr. B. last Fall and put them up staips in baskets.
The pile kept getting less and less but no one was selling any
potatoes until finAlly there was only about a peck left and
Plumer slipped up stairs and gave THEM away.
Had Mr. B's load all been CHICKENS AND EGGS we
doubt very much if he could have fought the peopie off with
clubs until he could have reached our store,'they would have
been so eager for his load
We think that when poultry and eggs are in such de
mand as they are now and probably alwaAs will be, that flarm
ers ought to give more time and study to that line ot work.
Poultry raising, like every other line of work has to be stud
ied if one gets his share of the profits, but literature is cheap
and the work simple.
Give us less Irish potatoes and cabbage and more Chick
ens and Eggs.
