was appolnted receiver in the matter. He
becarue Interested ln mind and llually ln

whlch we shall tjneak moreat lenuth li

marblo business of nny one llrm ln the world.

a tlour, feed and grocery business in the store

In 1871 thls firm Bucceoded S. Brown & Co.,
near the depot. Mr. Haluea, n natlvo of Cabot,
came here ln 1801, a young man from Greens
boro, whero he had been a short time in trade,
and bought of J. G. Stimson hls stock of goods
and block ot storcs. Ho cariied on a dry goods
and clothing businesa alone tlll 1805, when C.
E. Richardson, under the firm nnme of Haines

he sold out and, aa atated above, formed hls

and tho Innumerable artlcles of comfort, ue-

larlv Known to u large number ol peonle with
whom he haa personally traded than most of

nddreas of the born merchant, and though not
bo young as bo once waa, is nlways found at hls
post wltn a Keen eye to business ns ln earller
daya, believing that it ls better to wear out
than to rust out. Mr. Haines ls tho " sollcltor
general " of the firm nnd spends hls time for
the most part on the road. He Is a succesaful
