the miasmatic swamps, and in

very sewers, built for the protec

guarded against lest we take in
life-killing germs. The refrig

comfort, and once thought to be

All merchants v "have more or
less cause to complain of the
extremes to which the credit sys

without some assurance that he
will receive pay therefor. If
you can, it is best to pay as you
