And Still it Grows
Last week we made mention of
the large and constantly iimreua
ing business of Commorce. calling
attention to the fact that on
Monday morning then \vi re 17
solid car loads of freight at Lula
cii route to Commerce. Possibly
some who read the article thought
timt it wus mere boas.mg but
such was not the case. It wus a
fact. But on M unlay of this
week even that record was broken.
Last Monday morning when the
train was made up it was found
that there were* 18 solid cars of
freight lor this place. So far as
we knew, this is a record breaker.
As was intimated last week it is a
matter of“roal pleasure to note
that the volume of business of
Commerce grows larger every year
There are some reasons for this
state of affairs which deserve no
tice. Commerce is fortunately sit
uated. She is backed by one of
the best agricultural sections of
the state. There are no better
farming lands than can be found
in the territory contiguous to
C mmerce. Our trade conies
from Banks, Franklin, Madison
and Jackson counties, and the
fa’rm lands embraced in the terri
tory from which our trade cornea
are among the best in the slate.
Then too the farmers m Jthis ter
ritory are among the best to be
found . anywhere. While they
have not yet reached perfection
it is a fact that must be admitted
by all who are at all familiar with
the conditions, that the farmers
in this section have made rapid
progress within the last few years
They own better stock, live in
better homes, use modern ma
chinery, adopt Jthe best methods
of preparation and cultivation,
and are up to date in very many
respects. And still another fact
needs to he mentioned. Com
merce Las more money possibly,
than any town of its sizes in the
state. 0r tbre banks are able,
and aecomaiodatiug, To have
such bank* is not only a conven
ience, r but a blessing to auy com
munity. Added to this, is the
faol that possibly m U o town of
it* *iae, are to ba found so many
many merchants of sue’; stroi g
(inanancial backing, as ,ve have
in Commerce. Only tins week
wh publish notice of a formation
of anew firm capiliozed with
* 10,000 every dollar of winch lias
actually beoii p rid in. i’here are
several others with as much, and
others who have more. This en
ables our merchants to pay spot
cash and hence they get .-> item
at rock bottom prices. And dill
another fact as to our Ouuikh
men is rather remarkable. Tie
men composing the leudi ig fi-„n
here are all men in middle life,
full of energy, and of ifiinowl
edged business ability. Not only
so, but their business ni ■' !m i , art,
commendable. They fight shy of
the sensational—steer clear ot
futures—avoid all gambling feat
ures ot anvikind wliatso • r, and
conduct their business on sound
business principles. II nee, we
have comparatively no business
failures in Commerce. And what
is more, and even better than u ;|.
our leading business m< a are of
high moral character, and un
questionable veracity. In s (ior j
Commerce is f, unded on a ro ’
and hence her present is s.itisf
torv, and her future full of pi,......
