1 ALoiittweiity years of that time I have conducted practically a
NE-PRIGE BUSINESS! ;
During the period of my apprenticeship my sense of justice. Vvas,
frequeutly shocked by the prevailing methods of business inequali
ties, and I resolved then, If I ever entered into business pursuits 111
my own behalf I would Improve 011 previous conditions.
When I, first introduced, a

And fiom which no deviation would be permitted, many prophesied
a failure, because up to that time but few houses of any sort had
adopted that system, aud as, for the
It was simply impossible to succeed under any such arrangement, as
it had never been thought of in that connection.
Now the One-Price System prevails in the Clothing Trade every
where in large and successfully-conducted b usinesses.
I claim no, merit for the invention; I only anticipated the luevit
On the 0(ld-Time Process was the

it, only stipulating that the articles were in as good conditioii as
when purchased and that no unreasonable time had elapsed.
This I had also the honor to introduce, and while this has not be

I have always made it a point to identify myself with my pursuit1?
and to make myself feel that I was performing, though it may be an
insignificant one, a part in the great scheme of life.
It will always be, a matter of pride to me that when I worked at the
United States Arsenal, making cartridges for the Mexican War, that
the officers in charge always brought visitors to my bench to observe
the manner of formation, because of 'my superior workmanship. Nor
will I ever forget the kindly lieutenant (Lieutenant Hagner I
think his name was,) who taught me how to make them with his
own hands and who encouraged me with his smile. This matter of
I have endeavored to signalize in every branch of .my business, with
what.success others must judge.
The Conclusion of the latter
Is that I have concluded, at their invitation, to form a partnership con-i
uecUonwithMessrsAi SAKS & CO., on the completionofthe building
now in progress on the corner of Seventh street and Market Space,
and we have mutually agreed "That it is distinctly understood, and
