Or if they had but a few hkles to sell they would take then to J he j Join 1 meat merchant and leave them. . The merchant would ,pow. jtlffiiu into a bock room and wait for a hide, man.. - Sometimes the hides.. SBoiledt The hide men came and made a ridiculous offer and the merchant sold, dividing the money as he saw fit. Now there is a reliable dealer in the town permanently located where the man with hides or pelts to sell goes and sells for the highest market price and takes the money away with him, leaving the hide. Mr. Pierce wants to buy hides, he pays the highest market' price in order to get enough, lie also buys scrap metal.
