He has bought an immense lot of clothing, furnishing goods, hats, caps, umbrellas, etc., for both the Detroit and Toledo stores, and has also bought for other houses at Ionia and Stanton, Mich. "For the past three years Mr. Hudson has been the leader of the Mabley buyers, was C R Mabley's partner, and managed the entire business making it enormous and profitable.
