GOES ON A RAMBLE AND TELLS WHAT
rniptlinenlary Notices of the Way Honn
otftan Antonio's llusln... Men Keep
Rambling or sauntering at my eaie with no
particular object In view, it a favorite rtcrei
tlon o( mine, combining both bodily exercise
and mental amusement, and it hat almost
grown into a habit Saunteiing down Hous
ton tlreet my attention was attracted by the
tisteful display in Gregory's crockery police,
and I entered and requested to be shown
through hit store, which request was complied
with in the politest manner imaginable. Po
lite c'eiks are a great help to merchants, es
pecially when competition It brisk and trade
it dull. Gregory'! assortment It eitentlvr,
complete and varied, and Is arranged tattc.
fully, to that I enjoyed a treat in looking
through hit ttock. The ladiet should pay his
store a visit., I dropped in nest at the store
of Soule & Williams and found them at home
In their new quarters. They are live buiinett
men at well at polite, and have a fine lot of
paints, oilt, gilts, and paper hangings. Be
ing curiout to tee something of the art of book
binding, I paid Mr. C V Krommer a "pop
call," on Solcdad street, and was more than
repaid by Ihe Insight gained into book bind
ing. II persons who have periodical! and
magaiinet would but get Mr. Frommer to
bind them, they would grace their libraries
and be in a condition to be read with pleas
ure. Il is aggravating to be forced to hunt
up the numbers, at it breaks the thread of the
store. Keeling tcmewhat thirsty and dry in'
the gullet, I mtde a flank movement, and
having driven in the pickets, ttoimcd the
White Elephant. Dear me, that's a laloon and
billiard room for you. llclng crowded, when
I entete l, I had to wait till my turn came,
but a glass of choice liquor,' most artistically
and scientifically mixed and shaken, "acted
like a charm" on my thirst and knocked 10
years from off my age. I have had a good
taste in my mouth ever tlnce. At I wat clote
to Wol (ion's and fell rejuvinated, I wended
my way straight to hi, mammoth establish
ment, but found Ihe entrance blocked up
by customers, and was under the necessity of
elbowing and pushing my wry inside. After
looking at his Immense and varied stock (it
seemed to my dated tenset that he had every
thing) the mystery of "everybody and hit
wife" flocking to hit ttore to fade, wat ex
plained to my tatislaction. Wolfson meant
business, and hit business It to tell goods to
an appreciative public. Unluckily for me,
amid tuch a wildcrneti of. nice articles, my
pocket book wat in a ttate of collapse, and
all that wat left me wat to feast my eyet and
imagine what I would buy, when ray revenue
from my catties in Spain came to hand.
Sam C. Dennett was the place at which I
"rounded up" next, and he showed me over
hit ttore In Ihe mott courteous mtnncr. He
hat everything suitable for the "Inner man"
in Ihe way of creature comfortt and luxutict,
and he regaled me with a glatt of splendid
wine it wat not a fabricated compound, but
the pure juice of Ihe grape, mellowed
by age. Its aroma was delightful, but
its taste was divine. I am an expert
in the matter of wines, although not equal to
Sancho l'ania and his cousin. A tavern
keeper drew a tankard ol wine from a cask,
and asked his friendt tp give him their judg
ment of itt quality and flavor. When Sancho
Panza't turn came he laid It had a tatte of
iron about it, and hit cousin said it had a
tatte ol leather about It, which exposed them
to much laughter and ridicule. . Well, when
the wine wat drawn olT, to be put In bottles,
a key with a leather strap wat found in Ihe
catk. Sam C. Dennett it Ihe man to buy
groceriet from, and "don't you forget it."
At I was by this time pretty hungry (it was
5 o'clock) I cast anchor in the Globe res
taurant and requeued Ilordonl to Cx up a
dinner for me. I like eating at a restaurant;
It It independent, free and easy;' you don't
have to be on your p't and q's, and to tit bolt
upright at If you wat made of cut iron, but
you can ttretch your legs out under the table,
and enjoy yourself. Well, Ilordonl tet before
me a capital dinner It wat well cooked, and,
what it Indispcntlble with me, everything wat
dean and tidy, my nose wat not offended by
a "compound of villainous smells," nor my
eyet by dead flies and scraps of the mouldy
bread and stale meat The atmosphere of
common restaurants takes away my appetite
and sicken! me, but Ilordoni't was free from
thlt unpleasant smelt. Fortified by a good
dinner, and feeling Immensely good humored
I resolved lo have a peep at the jewelry stores.
S. Stern hat a nic. assortment of watcher,
jewelry and diamond!, and my impression
was hit ttore wat ahead of anything in San
Antonio, and I should have given him my
affidavit to that effect, -on Ihe sour of the
moment, but after leaving hit ttore I
"took in" Ilcrtzberg, and at once be
came a "hung jury," I shall hate
t visit them a tecond lime and lake an inven
tory to settle which one it entitled to the pre
cedence. Both are good enough for me, and
tt wat lucky for me, my ppeket was empty.
Ain't Paul Wagner's Bazaar the acme of
crockery stores, a wilderness of curlotitiest
Hit Mexican curiotltiet captured me, spell
bound me, I should like to spend a couple of
bourt in hit ttore every day, looking at itt
tatteful and varied content!, only I should be
in the way of hit cuttomers. Why, I even
dream of Wagner'a Bazaar In my sleep.
Bell & Brothers, Alex Sartor and Rouvant
were next visited, and they were found to be
polite and affable, and with well selected
stocki In their Unci.
S. Mayer & Son have a ttore which any
city in the Union might be proud of. It is
not only brimming over with goods, but every
thing It to arranged at to thow the goodt and
cet off the ttore. There It a great art tn
knowing how to arrange goodt in a ttore to
at to pleate the tatte of customer!, and S.
Mayer & Son have this art to perfection.
From S. Mayer & Son I tacked acrott the
channel (Ihe rain had effaced the street) and
entered the huge furniture establishment of
Erastut Heed, where the smiling Mr. Kose
received me and conducted me throughout Ihe
ttore. There it everything in it in the share
of furniture, from elegant and costly down to
cheap and plain. Such charming rocking
cbtlrs. I sat down in tome of them, and
came near falling to sleep. Keed doet an
Immense business and deserves the patron
age he receives. Were I in Ihe furniture line,
I should make it a point to engage Reed't
talesman, Mr. Rose.
Haas & Oppenhclmcr have a splendid ttore.
The ladiet can turely be lulled to a T in their
ttore. The clerks were mott polite and cour
teous ami teemed lo feel a pleasure In show
ing me their ttock, llelwetn you and me, I
avoided tome ttorcs, bccauie a report had
r.'ached me that the clerks were gruff, rude
and unaccommodating to cuitomeri, but' I
wilt not name them, (lusting thil hint will lesd
the proprietor! to watch the manner! of their
employed. The ee of Ihe prop'ietor in a
store Is to his business what axle grease is to
Ihe car wheel, what a driver is to a team, or a
cook to the preparation of a meal. Some
magnetic or physiological influence drew me
inlo paying the jewelry ttore ol S. Stern a
tecond visit and to give it a more careful In
spection, and Town Talk regards II at the
largest and finest in San Antonio.
At Town Talk doet not believe in doing
thingt by halves, he mutt tell merchant! they
act moil unwisely in paying cletkt tmill
waget, and they ought to change It. Make
your cletkt a present Chtistmai and open
18S4 by increaiing their salaries. Attach your
clerks to you, gentlemen merchants, and puj
them above temptation.
Town Talk meant to lake another ramble
and merchant! had better keep a sharp look
outhe ii not crotseyed, nor hunchbacked,
nor lame of a leg. Any one may addrett me
to the care of Ihe I.Ifiiir. Town Talk
