year, there have been appearing in
these columns statements made by
neighbors, which we have all read
with great Interest, and many of us
?with great profit. But what we want
to know Is, do they stand the greatest
test or all?4hc test of time? Here is
conclusive evidence on this point from
a Laurons man:
