Sweet Potatoes Command High
Price.
Mr. Editor : '1
I read Prof. F. T. Guilbean's
article and that of Mr. Chevis of
the Southwestern Bureau, aud I
hlave made some observation con
cerning farm products.
\While in Chicago a few weeks
ago, I wade it my business to in
quire the price retailers were get
ting in that city for sweet pota
toes, which was 6 oeuts per pound
or $J9 0 per barrel.
Sweet potatoes are shipped to
the Chicago market in hampers
from Delaware and New Jersey.
The hampers weigh 50 pounds,
the potatoes are of the same qua
lity and uniform in size. The
very large and smail potatoes are
not salable and are kept on the
farm for feeding stock and hogs.
If the producers will pack their
products in the right way, in qua
lity, size and package, and get in
the right market, they will always
,et good, paying prices for what
they grow.

ANOTHER EVIDENCE
OF PROCRESSIVENESS
THE COMMERCIAL BANK has recently install
ed an adding-subtracting machine to be used for
Ledger Posting. The machine was manufactured
by the Burroughs Adding Machine Co., of Detroit.
People who are not acquainted with the inside work
ing of a bank will not fully realize the great advan
tage of machine work over hand work in posting to
the ledger. In the first place, the Commercial Bank
will save at least twenty per cent in time by the ma
chine method. This saving means something to the
depositors of the Bank, for this time can be devoted
to the improvement of the already excellent service
which the Commercial Bank is now giving to its
patrons.
THERE'S MONEY IN IT.
If people only knew the opportunity which is offer
ed them by a weekly newspaper, they would take
advantage of it each week and tell their neighbors
about things which they have to sell which would
be profitable to both of them.
Every day there are bargains going to waste be
cause the party who would like to have them, and
who is looking for them does not know that they
are within his reach. :: :: :: ::
