Then, too, the quality of the goods we've been getting lately is terrible. Lately 1 have had to fall back on oe eaftional sales of two or throe and even sometimes a single bottle, and that's risky business. I’d rather handle bigger quantifies. It's l"ss work, less risk and while I don’t make as much on each quart when I sell half a ease or a ease. I get what I do make quicker and the deal is done. The fellow who has been bringing the stuff up here for me is taking over my regular customers, ami he'll do well, be cause he'll run the business just as I have b-H-n running it. and unless he gets greedy and tries to make too much of a kilting, lie's got a ebam-e to clean up a fair sized pile. 1 don't know what line of business to go into. Tending bar under the old laws and selling In violation of the new laws, does not particularly qualify 11 guy for any special line of business that's legitimate.
