NAIL KEG HOOPS.
I wish to contract for a large quantity of hoops, already shaved, for nail kegs. Persons in the country who have birch growth in considerable quantity will find it to their interest to apply at my office on Pearl street, south of Cary, where they can see samples of the hoops wanted.
