A Swindle: - A large man of prepossessing appearance and courtly address has been touring this province introducing a new brand of paint in cans. He offered extraordinary inducements to the dealers with whom he did business and succeeded in placing his wares in almost every village. He delivered the paint when ordered and an offer of 20 per cent off for cash would generally secure pay down. One firm which had taken a large quantity became suspicious, made inquiry, found that the firm alleged to manufacture the paint had no tangible existence, and that the article itself was copal varnish. The dealer was arrested on a charge of fraud, which he compounded by re-couping the firm the amount he had taken from them with a further sum for expenses and was allowed to go in peace.
