It was my good fortune to fall lit with two
oommercial travelers at Foryth, Taney
county, and rids with one of them as far as
Sparta, Christian coujty. No one who do
sires to snjoy life will fail to fall in with com
mercial travelers in the west at every oppor
tunity, for what they do not know about the
section their route covers cannot lie lourued
by intoUiKunt and persistent inquiry. The
drumiiKT'n outfit iu this country consists of
the bvst team of road ;tors to be had, a light
covered carriage, and a few grips for samples
stowed beneath and behind the souls. One ot
the tw men was Mr. AJ Baldwin, in the
hardware line, the otlier Mr. Charles Blood,

drove out of town at 7 o'clock. They hod
