The Christmas spirit i? abroad,
and the dealers in merchandise of
all kinds are handing out goods for
holiday gifts in great numbers.
The hustle and bustle of the
season began about two weeks ago,
and since then there has beeu no
let up. Every man and woman one
meets has bundles galore, and the
delivery wagons and express com
panies are pushed to the limit.
There is only one day mote be
lore Christmas, and tomorrow will
be a very busy day, for there are
no doubt many this year, as there
always is, who have put off the
purchase of gifts, until the last
miuute, and up to midnight to
morrow the hustle will continue.

OLEOMARGARINE VS. BUTTER.
Since licenses have been taken
out by several parties for the sale
of butte rine the price of butter has
taken a big drop. The price of the
latter had been going up until it
reached 3S cents a pound Tin
made it impossible for many fatni
lies to indulge in such a luxury,
and when butterine came on the
market there was a general rush
tor it, at 20 cents a pound.
At Bomboy's market over half a
ton of it was sold the first eight
days. Buter began to take a turn
Die, until it tell to 28 cents, and it
is reported that one deiler is sell
ing at 24 cents.
Some claim that after the first of
the year the price of butter will go
up again, as the dealers in butter
ine may not be willing to pay the
license fee of $ioo for the whole
year, as they will have to do if they
continue the sale.
If butter goes up again, there is
little doubt that the sale of butter
ine will be continued, and in this
event it is probable that butter will
be a scarce article, as many farm
ers claim that they cannot afford to
make butter at the present price,
and say they will sell their cows
and quit making butter.
