Holiday week is coming, and the busi

let us say a word. It is every one's
privilege to go where he pleases, and we
by no mean, wish to place any limitation
thereto. But still, one or two sugges
tion, may be in order. There is a false
and amusing idea in some people's minds
that what! they buy in another city
better than what our own
stores cantain. Sush persons think
tbey can buy better shoes, overcasts,
bats and all common or uncommon adorn
ment, in some big city than at home.
All this is a mistake, unless you want
to buy things with an unlimited pocket
book, and the average man is not a Van
derbilt, and his purchases do not run in-
the hundreds of thousands.
Aside from the ad
ditional expense of travel and tbe idea of
getting something better than in home
markets, a reason must and can be given
for this desire upon the part of some peo
ple to go to distant cities for their pur
chases. Familiarity is said to breed con
