Mr. Harris has been here but a few weeks l?ut the has won an excellent reputa tlon and his stock is one of the largest and handsomest ever shown in this part of the State. On the face of the evidence he seemsy to be the victim of misplaced confidence, the hoI,ler of the mortgage being a modern Shylock.

Harris' Statement. Someone has said that I had more uerjve than brains and while-this may be irue, the Lord has said "That an open confession is good for the soul." 'Mine is an open book. Briefly I owe "the Chattel Investment Company 15,000 for borrowed money on my stock, the payment of which has temporarily <!mbarrassed me but only temporari y. Nine tlujLUsand of my own monev and this $5,000 loan represent my stock, fixtures a.nd expenses. The loan company orally agreed to extend the time of payment until the hpliday trade opened, as the flood had delayed my plans. ' 1 One thousand of this $5,$^ loan was due July 1st, but the mortgage -was made so'tliat dcfaulu in one payment made the whole |5,000 due at one time. ' , I could have raised the $1,000 In this - ' city but was assured b^ the ]oi»n company thiat more time would ~ bo giv^n ' and mjr reliance upon this promise, . wbtch WBS not ke^ caused a defaolt Jo9r !ff and c9n8eQU«)at fore they close' my store and will begin Thursday sell cnougli of ray stock at public auction to pay th $5,000 and ccists. I have between $14 t>00 and $15,000 worth of goods stock at this lime. How much of will be sacrificed to raise this money remains to be seen, but I sliall have a pretty good stock left and can assure I ho people of lola that though I will have thus descended a few rounuS t»« the ladder leading to success, I will take a firmer hold, retain my nerve :ind continue to carry only the best ^oods.
