Everybody knows the story of the ac
coinuiodutlng old man wha was anxious
to please all tho world, lie was travelling
along the road on loot, driving a donkey
before him, with his grandson, nine or
ten years old, trudging at his side. "See
that man," said the tlrst group he met,
"letting his poor little grandson toll aloi.g
while the donkey li3 no load to carry.
What a shame!" The traveler Imme
diately seated the boy on thu donkey's
back. "Get down you . lazy, young
scamp," cxelahned thenaxt proup, "and
let your grandfather ride. Your limbs
are young, while his are old." The boy
was instantly dismounted, and the old
man took his place. "See that lazy fel
low," cried a third group, riding In com
fort, whllo the poor little boy has to walk
along the dusty road." The accommo
dating traveler thereupon placed
his grandson before him, an J they both
rode on until they encountered a fourth
party. "Wtdl," exclaimed the new pass
ersOiy, "look at that man and boy, both
stout and healthy, riding on that little
donkey's back. Why they are strong
enough to carry the poor beast Instead
of making him carry them." .Resolved
to please everybody the old man and h:s
dismounted, and with some dllliculty the
former managed to raise the donkey on
his shoulders, and staggered along, only
to meet another group of passengers,
who laughed and hooted at him as a lu
natic. As we walked through the establish
ment ol Mr. D, Hartman yesterday
afternoon and tx'tmined the stock which
he has on hand, we arrived at the conclu
sion that that gentleman had resolved to
pleae everybody, ana we certainly sej
no reason why he should not. Such
a conglomerate itm-j" of toy;,
glassware, silverware, una other
articles whieh are iu stock we have never
before seen, and we are atistled it is the
largest and most complete t-ver oflered to

crockery department is complete in every
detail, and embraces anything and every
thing usually found in this line. A tine
display ot Roger's cutlery; silverware iu
knives, lurks, spoons, casters, inkitamls,
etc., is an attractive feature. Toys iu an
endless variety, children's wagons, carts,
velocipedes, hobby horses, sleds, sleighs,
baby carriages and innumerable other
things. L'imp gooJ of all kinds, ch in,

and sizes. Mr. Hartmaa bat In stock a

it is one thlnif that verv few neonle have
chants been in business and still have
it were-to say It, when asked by a customer: "Is this piece of foods all wool, slit 'I
want to buy a good all-wool suit lor $7, Will you guarantee it to be ell wool and
to wear well?" The merchant who can say no, knows his business, and deserves
a monument. In otber words to tell the
of the hardest things to do. All butinets men are fully congnlzant of tbe
fact, and give at their reason: "Well, If 1 had told them the truth, 1 would
have lost the customer, and my competitor made tbe sale."
