The Greenwood merchants had no cause for complaint over the holiday trade this year. E. T. Burch and Fricke Rossman Co., both state that their trade exceeded that of previous years and that never before were they so completely cleaned up on holiday goods. The same is practically the case with the Big Store, and their trade was easier to handle in that it was spread over a longer period instead of waiting until the last week, making it easier to handle the business and enabled them to do the larger amount. Arends & Steffen have been here only a few months and could not compare this year's business with other years. However they were well pleased with the season's business.

Last summer a pair of sewing machine agents canvassed the farming country in this vicinity. They sold a number of machines, taking in part payment any old sewing machine the purchaser might have. In each case the agents allowed from $25 to $30 for the machine and required the purchasers to sign an agreement to pay $60 for the new machine. At the bottom of the agreement, below the purchaser's signature, was a statement that a certain sum of money had been allowed on the contract or the old machine. These are now turning up for collection but they are minus the last mentioned clause and are simply a contract to pay $60 for a sewing machine, and the worst of it is that the signers have to pay it. The Clarion can only repeat the warning it has given before - sign nothing for a stranger. - Abbotsford Clarion
