much better than when Texas had

THE MAN WHO CVOES AtTEU

occasionally. For tho moat part the
others aro specialty salesmen
Investigation also shows that Elias-

Graham flour sold hero to ono from

this trado cat ly both with salesmen

Business men In this section thought
for a whllo when tho railroad was
