Some people appear to think it is a privilege to beat o sewing machine agent and many are the dodges and games played on that much-abused indi vidual, but none of local importance can come within some distance of the one a West Hancock citizen attempted on a representative of the Singer sewing ma chine company. The agent, aa is usual, came out ahead and the present case is no exception to the rule. TV - .. . . i ue agent m question naa sold a ma- cume on easy terms, and payments were to be made on it monthly. The agent, when the payments were not regularly made, went to the house to take posses sion of the machine, but the party dis claimed all knowledge of the whole tran saction and the agent was beginning to think he had been worsted. However, suspecting the machine waa about the house, be obtained a search warrant, which was placed in the bands of Deputy Sher- ff Sullivan. The houae was searched and tne machine found in sections. One part was safely locked in a trunk, another hid under a stairway and still another under a bed on the upper floor of the house. The machine waa put together again and is still in the poasessioa of the West Han cock man, who paid tho balance and set uru luciuaufr. 11 is needless to say mat said citizen will not attempt to get ahead of the sewing machine man again, at least not in the near future. Mr. Hugh James left on the morning train for his old home in Ludgvan, Corn wall, on a two months' vacation and visit with his parents. Mr. James has not been home for twenty -two years and is indeed glad of an opportunity to visit bis old home again. He was accompan ied by John Kddy who will also visit frienda for a couple of months in Corn wall. PslntM to Be Considered In the manufacture of beerarepurfj and tin vor.
