would advise farmers to be care
ful how they "sign contracts."
Their plan of operation, says the
TrentvH'Jiepuhtica, in to go lo a
responsible old well to do farmer
and solicit an order to put up a
lightning rod, They rtriuo that
it pays them better to lake
orders and then come around
afterwards and pt.t np the rod,
a- by that means they save
bawling tlio licit vy matoiial nil
over tbo country. They general
ly represent that the rod will
cost from eight to fifteen dollars.
Before leaving they induce the
farmer to sign an onlor, which
afterwards proves to be as bind
ing as a note. The parties taking
the order do not come back put
up the roil, but send another w ho
carries out the Contract and puts
it up as Hpecitled, making the
cost four or five timo as much ns
represented. If the farmer com
plains, be is informed that he
signed tbo contract, or order and
they consider him good for the
money. They then sell the note
to an innocent purchaser, who
collects the money. Buy no
lightning rods of strangers, and
sign no orders to bind ydit, until
you get what you contract for.
