Them ar various means of ludmnViof a
city's prosperity various signs by which1
traveler would be lod to believe that tho
city in which he is temporarily laying oyer,
is ono iu which tho various influences
which build up great metropolitan centers
have been harmoniously at work in that
particular place, and . that its way
for a rapid growth to solid wealth
and wido-snread commercial Im
portance has been prepared for it,
It is a proot of general prosperity in a com
munity if its residences aro many and ele
gant; its streets and walks, in good condi
tion; its public institutions numerous and
grand, representing every branch of human
knowledgo aud usefulness; its factories,
producing every article that may bo neces
sary to man's subsistence, happiness and
general well-being, and its means ot com
muuication with the communities round it,
ample and in constant use, thus keeping up
n continuous flow of commerce and eutab
lishing fraternal relations with the outside
world. All this, noted by a casual ' ol
server, would, ot course, leave
the impression that tho city
possessing all these characteristics, was
indeed, a flourishing one, and if not al
ready a great commercial center, was dos
tincd soon to become one. But the most
positive proof of real, solid prosperity, are
the creat commercial establishments, all
bustling with business from early morning
until Into at niaht, employing as their
auxilliarics, the railway and the steamboat
and the electric wire, to establish and
maintain a continuous traffic between com
munities, peoples, nations and continents.
The truth of these statements no ono will
question, and hence wo feel particularly
proud of some of the business houses
of Cairo, aud in justification of this
pride, 've will endeavor to describe ono of
the foremost business houses iu tho city.
Wc have a number of enterprising and emi
nently successful business firms in our
rapidly growing city, all of whom deserve
fuvorablo notice, but we bavo time and
space to note only one ot them at present.
And in order to givo a fair idea of tho
general character of the balance, we
must select ono that combines
within itself all the manifold charac
teristic of the true, American business
man; such as energy, honesty, shrewdness,
judgment, intelligence, executive ability
and a thorough knowledge of practical
business in all its varied form, aud as it
daily presents itself for consideration and
transaction such a firm is the well known
and everywhere respected firm of Chas. O.
Faticr & Co., wholesale and retail dealers
iu general merchandise, on tho corner ot
Nineteenth street and Commercial avenue.
Tho firm is composed of two members:
Charles 0. Patier and William Wolfe, and
was formed March 13, 1872, when they
began business together in a one-story frame
building on the site where now stands their
collossal brick structure. The peculiar
business talent of the two men, made them
popular, and soon brought them the custom
they deserved, and laid tho toundation for
ha immense trado that now flows to their
doqr 'aud which has made their names
familiar in many of tho states of the
Union. The first year of this firm's ex
istence, they disposed of seventy-five thous
and dollars' worth of goods, and every
subsequent year, as they became better
knowu, their well directed tflbrts to 6crve
their customers well, were more and better
appreciated, and their sales increased, until
now they have reached tho enormous sum
of threo hundred thousand dol
lars. They began, as before
stated, in an old one story
framo building and their trado was strictly
retail, and confined to tho city and the
southern part of this slate. Now they em
ploy twenty-one clerks in a great three
story brick structure, ono hundred feet
each way, and their trade is immense,
coming to them from tho city and
this state, as well as from Kentucky, Mis
souri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi,
Louisiana, Georgia, Florida and, in fact,
all tho southern and some of tho middle
states. To successfully manage suck a
business naturally requires a tact that not
many men dobsoss, but Messrs. Patier & Co.
aro equal to Ae task and curry tho great
-csponsibility easily, and all their business,
tven to tho minutest details, is under their
siporvlMon and nothing escapes their notico
thbt affects their immense trade.
Ete.nal vigilance, activity and honesty 1b
