A woman entered the writer's
home yesterday peddling a bunch of
toilet articles and soliciting trade.
She would have the ladies of this
city believe that our local merchants
don't carry anything In this line
worth a pinch of snuff. The refusal
of our women folks to purchase any
of her goods lead her to make re
marks that were on the verge of in
sulting. We have investigated and
find that this woman had no license
to retail goods in Hickman much
less to insult ladies who do not buy
According to her own statement,
her sales here Tuesday must have
been fully SSO worth. We find that
she has oeen coming here for about
three years, taking this business
away from our local merchants.
This is not right. It is an Injus
tice to our merchants to pay license,
taxes, etc., and then have similar
stock sold by house-to-house can
vasers who pay nothing.
Another thing, the ladies of this
city will find it a great deal more
satisfactory to buy such articles of
our merchants not only in the mat
ter of price, but quality as well.
As for us, we don't take any stock
in peddlers, and take the liberty of
appointing ourselves a committee of
one to get right in behind them when
they get to operating in this city
without a license.
We're for the Hickman merchants
365 days In the year.
We believe the report has been
greatly exaggerated concerning the
city's frog pond and fishing place in
the middle of the Buchanan street,
between the homes of Ed Townsend
and R. B. Johnson. While a sign
has been erected there which reads
"Fish and Frog-Pond Reserve, own
ed and operated by the city council
S10 Fine to Fill Pond," It still re
mains a fact that the pond has not paid
a decent dividend during the past
three years, and it is more than like
ly that they will sooner or later again
turn this spot into a public Highway,
Some of the most enthusiastic Nim
rods on the Board are now driving
to Blue Pond and elsewhere to da
their fishing, which indicates that
the city's pond is Retting to be a
poor fishing place. The frogs, too,
are of a small slender legged variety
and it seems impossible to raise the
laree ereen ones successfully for
lack of sufficient shade. We are of
the opinion that citizens in that vi
cinity are unduly excited about the
pond being made larger and taking
in individual property, and that the
report to that effect has been great
