T. SMITH & CO. LTD. A Big Bag Business. New and Second-Hand Saok Specialists. As promised in a previous issue we now propose to discuss further, aspects of this important business:— Smith's do a big trade in " once used '' wheat sacks and chaff bags ; these are sacks and bags that have been used once only, and are little dif ferent to new. It is perha;; • on this class of bag more thaij;- .ty other that Smith's reputation has been built. Farmers who use Smith's once-used wheat sacks • and chaff bags have the twofold advantage of saving money and securing a tho roughly dependable article. They are vastly superior to the second-hand ai'ticle sold locally in the country, yet they cost the farmer no more, owing to the fact that there are no intermediate profits to be paid. Farmers who have been prejudiced against second-hand sacks by using those purchased from local store keepers, that have been collected locally, should write to Smith's for information regarding their once used...
