E. Slee, (notlSlee Bros, vs stated
in our hist issue,) has started a
cheap cash store at this place, and
Jiaving been in business for 13 yenrs
at Kenyon, selling'-goo'ds en time,
he has come to the conclusion that
the cash trade is not only to the in
terest of the buyer, but also a pleas
ure to tire seller. He says that his
cash trade supported his credit trade
and was not giving his cash custo
mers a fair show that credit and
cash trade should not be .joined in
the same store, as a two priced store
does not give satisfaction. His ex
perience in buying, and facilities
for doing business enable hint to
sell at low prices.
