THE CLERK Should be a plain and rapid writer, well known in the community where the sale is to be held, accurate in figures, and .'personally agreeable. He should also be familiar with the financial condition of bidders, so that he may be able to give advice along) this line. TERMS OF SALE . This depends on the time and other conditions. After harvest time is usually the most convenient time of payment. Sales held in the fall should have nine months' to one year's time, in the winter six or etght months; ask . the auctioneer or the bank where youi expect to dispose of your paper. As to charging interest or giving time without discounts for cash, etc., you should be governed by conditions. iner home last Saturday. Mrs. Wins- .MISCELLANEOUS ARTICLES Should not be left in the corners of the yard, barn or house, or under piles of rubbish. If they are worth selling at all, fish them out, clean them up, get them ready and get every cent possible out of them. DO JUST AS YOU ADVERTISE ALWAYS Nothing can be more important. A suspicion of side-bidding will kill a sale, no matter how big the crowd. Make in an open sale and take your chances. BE SURE AND HAVE A LUNCH S.ome auctioneers refuse to cry a sale without it. A full stomach, or the prospect of one, makes a good bidder. Don't omit the hot coffee. THE AUCTIONEER Get a good auctioneer the best to be had one who is honest and reliable and whose statements can be relied upon. He must be a man familiar YOUR HORSES AND CATTLE Should be carefully groomed and made to look as well as possible. Number and tag every head. Lead it out by itself that the bidders may not have their attention diverted. HOGS AND SHEEP Should be graded if of different classes, not too many in a pen. All their surroundings clean and neat. FOWLS Should be cooped or crated, not crowded, and sold with the coops or crates. This increases bidders by furnishing them with a convenient method of taking them home. MACHINERY, BUGGIES, ETC. Should all be clean, in good repair, and so arranged that each piece can be seen by the bidders and the auctioneer can see his audience at all times. Harness should be newly cleaned and oiled and should be sold on the horses if possible. some time.
