A Big Trade

You Know and in fact everyone who ever used harness knows that it never pays to buy cheap, factory-made harness. We know it too, and that is why everything in our store is good, honest, hand-made, home-made harness. And the best part of the deal -- for you -- is, we are selling at prices just as low as the lowest, and lower than the most. We cordially invite you to call and inspect our harness, saddles, whips, etc. If you buy of us, you will get your money's worth. Manchester & Gill.

Business news from the Skidmore Standard’s June 15, 1900 edition:

A Big Trade.

A deal was consummated the fore part of the week in which J. W. Ware, who has been one of the business men of Skidmore a number of years, retires to become a farmer, George Manchester and Fred Gill don the harness and enter the ranks as hustlers for business.

As the trade stands, Mr. Ware becomes the owner of the Gill farm, seven and one-half miles northeast of Skidmore, which by the way is one of the finest farms in the county; and Messrs Manchester and Gill become equal partners in the stock of hardware, harness, etc.  The invoice was begun yesterday morning and will probably be completed tonight.

Mr. Gill thoroughly understands the harness business and Mr. Manchester has gained a good, practical knowledge of the mercantile business by his connection with the firm of Sewell Bros. & Montgomery as salesman, so the new firm will no doubt succeed and be a trade winner for the town.
