A question that Lias doubtless often presented itself did All this Hizir come from tlii1 question i will Endeavor to answer. With the coining of Spring in the midlands and West of Franco appeared what May fitly be termed a singular class of nomadic individuals armed Long Iron tipped Staves and bearing heavy packs of Mer Chandise upon their at first Glince one would have taken them to he Ordinary hawkers yet merchandise was but an accessory to their strange Industry. They were the Couperus the reapers of a hirsute Harvest.

Very often the coup eur had to return to the charge owing to female indecision and he was More than Happy when sure that a tardy remorse would not of half his coveted trophy. Until the authorities intervened Cut Ting was conducted in Public As an amusement for onlookers it being considered highly entertaining to hear 10 or 12 rival Couperus Eulogi zing their wares each pretesting his to be far Superior to his fellow s.
