We were informed a few days ago
', by" two popular citizens of Mon

in Aberdeen, that goods of all
kinds are cheaper in Columbus
than in Aderdeen. They stated
that oats were $3.25 in Aberdeen
and $2.90 in Columbus on the
same day . They also stated that
our business men were simply the
finest bunch of jolly good fel
