"We desire to take thi.i way of thanking the maDy friends who honored us with their presence yesterday. It is possible that in the crush attendant on our opening that we may have failed to thank each
one personally for his presence; if so, we trust you will now accept our kindest thanks and best wishes, for aiding us to mako the event oneong to be rememembered by all. Our fondest hopes and anticipa
tions were moro than realized by the cordiality of the good people of Marietta and vicinity, displayed by their presence with us we were strangers yesterday, but to-day we feel thafwe are friends.
Yesterday we sold nothing, but from this' on our doors are open to the public as merchants, and we trust that our prices, qualities and goods will merit the approval and patronage of all. We solicit a
share of your trade, but whether you desire to buy or not, remember that we shall always welcome you as visitors as cordially as we did yesterday. It will be our aim to give the best quality possible at lowest
reasonable prices; the most' careful attention to every customer's wants, and the best satisfaction to every customer that we possibly can. These, it is true, are all "stock, phrases," but for proof of our sincerity
We ask for but one visit to our store. If wo do not convince you that it is to your interest as well as to our own to buy from us, we will be the losers. We have come to stay. Marietta's .interest from now on
is our own, and we hope t;o assist as well as to be benefited by our location hero. ,
Oome in and see us, whether you ever expect to buy from us ornot. We desire io make the acquaintance of everyone. Come in and ask questions. Oome in and bother us, trouble us, worry us, annoy-i
us or at least try to do so, andif you succeed in troubling: us more tlrhn wo want to bo troubled, we will confess that we are not good business people. By trouble wo expect to prosper, by hard work we ex-'
pect to succeed. We need your assistance to make work and trouble, so give us your full share, and wo shall smile ouriull approval. No ono can forget the place. Remember our Great State of Ohio,
