We are informed that a set of swin
dlers are oporatiug in this state. Their
pretended business is that of establish
ing agencies for selling feed mills or
grinders to farmers. The farmer so
lected by these sleek fellows us their
agent Is ono who nover reads an agri
cultural paper, and ono who is easily
led to belicvo that a small fortune
awaits him through tko sale of tho
mills. A few days after signing tho
supposed contract this guileless farmer
is confronted with a note having his
signature attached and there is nothing'
bettci to bodono than to pay it; and so
the farmer is out at one fell swoop a
sufficient sum of money to kcp him
self and family supplied with the right
kind of rending matter for years.
