saying, "I think I can seU.it for more to another man," It
amused and pleased us very much. This is not an isolated
case. Scores of men allover our county prefer High Point
Buggies, because they last longer, ride easier and look better.
Only yesterday another one of our customers told the
writer that, after using his High Point Buggy for six years,
he would not take less than for $25 for it.
Now, these men are not Buggy Salesmen. They are
farmers buying their goods where tney can get thc most
