no knowledge of the business. 1
have been working at the business
for 20 years, and can make any
kind of Harness from $2.50 up to
$500.00. I work from three to five
harness-makers all the time, and
can make anything you want that I
have not got in stock, but I always
keep a large stock of everything in
my line on hand. I sell one grade
of harness at $7.00 complete, that
if you can buy elsewhere in Lau
rens for the same money I will
make anyone that does it a present
of .1 set. I sell all of my goods on
twelve months guarantee if any
thing gives away 1 will fix it tor
nothing. I also do all kind of le
pairing at reasonable prices. Call
ami get prices and examine my
stock of goods.
