New York territory, however, It was
found abat a direct factory branch
was tho .most satisfactory way ot
handling tho business, so tho opening
of tho branch, marking a departure
from long established Dort policy,
was a notable occasion for tho entlro

This was eelobrated by a luncheon

That Dort solos for the coming year
will reach' a volume novor before
known In this territory was evident
from tho reports, glvon out by all

are Increasing with such rapidity
(hat this year will show a far greater
Increase than was anticipated.

All sorts of stories ore heard to

The most popular explanation of

havo been caught short ot the stock;
that they stubbornly refuse to cover
their contracts, and that they are
being administered a bad whipping.
Tho extent of their short contracts
bos been estimated as high aa 60,000

must now approximate 13,000,000.
