This week the firm of Snyder Brothers is dissolved, Roy Snyder purchasing the interest of his brother Harold. Some three years ago the boys purchased the Rexall Store of O. S. Ellvin, and have since conducted a very successful and profitable business Harold Snyder retires because he prefers some other line of work and may eventually go into the clothing trade. The store was closed Tuesday while invoicing was going on. Both the boys are very competent and very popular young men and their many friends wish them abundant success in their several callings.
