you think that they possess ALL the business qualifications in their
line, and that others must know nothing 'at all, because they know
it all. In- a few years they claim to have amassed such a fortune by
selling you clothing "way below cost" that they can dictate .to the
jobber and ."snuff out" the competitor; and yet when you look over
the Tax Duplicate you will find that some of these "Big Stock" and
"know it all" fellows, not a thousand miles from the Cheese City, who
"have more goods than all the other oiothing houses in the county"
will actually swear that they haven't one-third as much as some of
their modest competitors. ,v- V
How do you like it, Mr. Farmer you nho pay tax on 160 rods
of each acre of land youjpossess txAave a "Big Windy" tell you
that his brain is so big and his stock SO large that he can "knock
out" everything, and then when it comies to sharing the public burden
have him swear that his stock in trade is' not one-third as valuable as
that of an ignorant competitor? Where does the "wonderful suc
cess" of misrepresenting come in, in the advertisement or the affida
vit made to the assessor? Let us advertise facts, and not injure the
reputation of an honorable business by windy misrepresentations.
