Report on a prosperous grocer and insurance gent


Thursday, Sept. 30, 1909

from the Mathews Journal

Mr. S. P. James is writing insurance to beat the band but at the same time is whooping up the grocery business for all it is worth. On every Saturday he sells for cost and has a crowd on the string all day. The good people from all the county round are coming in to take advantage of the opportunity for saving.

Will trade a good farm and road horse for a suitable brood mare and give boot. For sale, a No. 9 Hockney Valley hand power feed cutter for cutting hay, oats, top fodder, etc., cost $16. Have no use for it and will take $8, also seed wheat for sale. Apply to Dr. Hoskins or at Spring Hill.
