President Benjiintn C. Harts.
Viae President Prank W. Bihnsen.
Secretary aid Treasurer Irvin S.
Tbe object of the corporation is to
carry on a wholesale drag, cigar, oil,
paint and notion t usiness, in tbe same
line so successfully conducted by Harts
& Bahnsen, only on a much larger scale.
The advance of tie house of Harts &
Bahnsen in the con mercial world is the
best possible proof of what will grow
from a small beginning when backed by
push, energy, enterprise and merit. Fif
teen years ago the firm of Harts & Bahnsen

from tbe start tl us made the (firm
struck out until tour years later it
branched into the wholesale trade, mov
ing to the etcre since occupied at the
corner of Third avenue and Twentieth
atreet. The 11 years that have sped
since have brought wnch prosperity that
today tbe firm discards the retail line en
tirely, and enters xclnsively into the
wholesale and jobbing trade in tbe new
building heretofore mentioned, and de
signed throughout for the purpose, a new
firm of Hartz & Ullemeyer, the former, a
brother to tbe senior merooer of tbe

ience that will be of great vJue to him in
bis new relations and added reeponsibili
