It has proven to be a profitable Way for the Farmer to dispose of his surplus and it affords a Market for accumulations on the farm that could not be disposed of at any Price at private Sale.

Ten years ago sales were advertised altogether by Means of Sale Bills. Now the Best sales Are advertised in the newspapers and the newspaper is the cheapest and most effective Means of reaching the people. Sale Bills Are Good enough As far As they go but they Don t go far enough. Few people Stop along the Roadside to read Bills but the Farmer picks up his local newspaper to find out who is going to sell when he Sells and we hat he Sells. It takes four or five jays to Bill a Sale the same time devoted to fitting the Stock for the Sale ring would be far More profitable. We predict that within a very Short time the Sale Bill will be a thing of the past.
