The Chamber of Commerce of Ada wired him endorsing the bill. S. M. Schwab, supposedly from New York or Chicago, w*as among the arrivals at the Harris this morning. But what I started out to say about him was this, he was representing some Unknown Company and is here for the purpose of selling some unknown species of ware, which he described as being of the nature to turn green in winter, so I am at a loss to know whether he was selling hose or jewelry.
