41ressedI to lie cuity dispensers the I,

I received letters from nearly ev'ery

eharliginlg that they were not satisfac

whethier I can,.ship the goods back,'
''the moment T show them (my eus
toimers) the iltrioduietory goods, theyI
begin to kick.'' These are but a few
samplIles of a protest that was prae
ticlly unianlimlous. I have thle letters
on file, anld have attached tile COPY
of Onle from the dispenser at Sumter,
together wvithi my rep)ly.
At this timle thlere were in thme coun

$47,000 wvorth of these goods.

board at a regular meeting in August,
and asked that they discontinue ord

D)uring the session of the No+amber
meeting of the board a list of tihe
