"I have heard so much talk about
the so-called "lReduced Price Sales"
in the larger cities that I will state
the facts as I found them. it is true
that great many retail stores in the
larger cities are selling goods at
greatly reduced -prices, but it Is also
true that the great majority of these
goods so offered are either unseason
able, or somewhat old, or the style Is
'bad; and in every case It Is the cheap
er grader of goods.
"In very few cases were the bet
ter grades of goods, new goods, or
standard lines being offered at any
great reductions. The demand, too,
seems to be for the botter classes of
merchandise, for' the people tdem' to
bt realizing more than ever before
that it is not economy to buy junk.
"Here's another thing, too, I have
looked over some stocks at home here
since returning, and I find that the
Greenville merchants are doing busi

or so it appears to me. The big city
