B USINESS <»f all kinds is being put on a Cash
Basis, and it is right and proper that it
should be.
If a farmer sells his wheat, corn, oats, or ha*,
it is for cash.
If he sells his beef, pork, or potatoes, it is for
cash.
If he sells his pearlies, it must be for cash.
Mercantile credits are now reduced to thirty
days, which is equivalent to cash; for thirty
days is no accommodation a| g|l, to a mail who
does a credit business,
At the beginning of every month the "Monthly
Statement" is sent out to all dealers, and the
amount summed lip at the foot of that " State
ment"
ust be promptly paid, or the delinquent's
credit suffers. It is evident, therefore, that mer
chants cannot do business satisfactory to them
selves, and keep up their credit and their stock,
if they continue to give the long credits hereto
fore extended to their customers.
Business, generally, is approaching more near
ly a cash basis, and business men everywhere,
will lie compelled to conform to the general rule
and practice. Consequently, the undersigned,
