Henderson, through the tobacco sea son or certainly until the Christmas holidays, would inaugurate a Trade Day, preferably Wednesday of each week, at which time they would, if they saw fit, advertise and place on sale certain bargains from their va rious stores. “Properly publicized and with suf ficient individual advertising by the merchants themselves it is the opinion of those with whom the matter has been discussed that it would very greatly ad to the advantage of the merchants and to the tocacco mar. ket generally. “If properly conducted, the advant age to the merchants is obvious and the advantage to the tobacco market lies in the fact that farmers would be prevailed on to bring their tobacco to this market on Wednesdays in or der to obtain advantage of the bar gains which would be offered on each Wednesday during the season. If the farmers could be induced to bring their tobacco here on Wednesday it would relieve the usual block of the market, which records show usually takes place either on Fridays or on Mondays, at which time it is neces sary for some farmers, whose ori ginal intention was to sell their to bacco here, to take their loads else where for sale because they could not he accommodated on the first and last days of the week. Any trade which would have resulted from the sale of their tobacco on this market was lost to the merchants, so the general idea is to relieve this unfortunate condi tion by making Wednesday a more attractive day of sale than either of the two other days. “Quite naturally, before the 25-15 Club would attempt to give publicity to such a movement on the part of the merchants of Henderson, it is very nece sary that an expression be obtained from those merchants who have so generously contributed to and co.operated with this movement, and Henderson Daily Dispatch G. W. FURQUERON, Post Commander who are stockholders in the enter prise. "Won’t you please be kind enough to let us have an expression from you as to your reaction to this idea, stat ing definitely whether it would have your sanction and if you would co operate? It will he necessary that quite a number of the merchants take an active interest if the plan is to be successful. “Please let me have your answer immediately either by telephone or by mail. This idea is offered to you nere'y as a suggestion and, of course, the combined wish of the merchants themselves will be followed.” TABERNACLE STARTS REVIVAL ON SUNDAY Rev J A L’.ailcy, Methodist min ster <:.t Middiebu’-g. announced a re vival today for Tabernacle Church he,’’inning Sunday morning at 11 o'clock Rev.
