“Primarily the words ‘trader‘ and 'tradesmnn' mean one who trades, and they have been heated by the courts in many Instances rm synony- mous.

His shop is on the ground floor,’ etc. Dr. Johnson mves it the same mean- in-,:, and quotes Prior and Goidsmith as authorities." In re Ragsdaie, 7 Bias. 155, Fed. Can. No. 11.530.
