I understand that Henry Bros., aro
going to have an auction solo In your
city at an early date. They aro first
class men to boom your town. They
had a big lot sale here about two
weeka ago. The lots sold well at
reasonable prices and there was abso
lutely no by-blddlng. Every sale was
a genuine ono. Several of the lots
were sold at an advance after the
sale, many of them at twenty-five per
cent over the. auction price. There Is
not a single purchaser at the Henry
auction who would take cost prlco for
the same now. I want to give you
this endorsement of Henry llros., as
our dealings with them were so satis
factory that I want your peoplo to
know Just what kind of men they aru.
