Three hundred years ago there was
no city of Boston, but there was a sec
tien of Massseht; celts, now called Mas
sachusetts Bay, which the Indians
called "Shawnjut," and it was here that
kitin was built. In Boston today the
name "Shawmut" is used in several
connections, one of its longest streets
bearing the name "Shawmut avenue."
5awmut has been adopted as the
name ef a well known brand of foot
wear, characterized by New England
thoroughness and honesty in lt manu
facture, and distinguished by a number
of features that greatly enhance its
wear raltie. These rubbers are on sale
in this city at the stores of several of
our leading dealers, and the advertise
ments showing their superior advant
ages may be seen from time to time in
our columns. "Why not memorize the

The Morican Co.
There are not many industries w hich
will show up the year 190S as their
tanner year of prosperity. In a great
many branches of trade it will long be
remembered as a year in which a mon
umental amount of energy was require
ed to make both ends meet. It is a
source of gratification to know, how
ever, that in the retail field there are
some lines which not oriby held their
wn, but made considerable progress.
One of the most noteworthy, per
haps, is The Mohican company. They
not only mads good with the people
whose elreimistances required the clos
est economy in buying meats', butter,
baked goods, and provisions, but they
fteve persistently maintained such a
high, standard of quality that many
housewives to whom quality is para
mount to everything else, have not
nly been able to obtain the very high
est grades, but at prices far beJow
those regularly charged in some stores
for very much inferior goods.
During the past year The Mohican
company has been traveling along at
erpreas train speed, opening up new
branches at every stop, improving;; its
equipment, as well as Increasing and
strengthening its organization. As a
consequence, the new year find it
hustling along without, any hitch, or
strain, and in a position to supply :tiie
public with the world's best foodstpffs
is unlimited quantities at the lowest
FJvi-rjr week mauy unusual opportu
nities are offered i The Mohican com
pany to secure large shipments' of
meats, flour, butter, fruits, or grocery
specialties at prices under the lowest
level. If the quality of the goods of
fered -is right, the proposition is seized
upon and the patrons of the company's
many stores get a chance to possess
the commodity at a great reduction
from the regular selling oriee. When
ever these extraordinary opportunttes
develop, the fact is advertised, and ev
erybody Is given a chance to get in on
the ground floor and save money. Only
recently when the butter market was
going up every day, rne Monican com
pany had a chance to secure an unusu
sUlv large shipment of the finest cream
ery at a figure which enabled them to
sell to the consumers at a very at
tractive price, and the public was not
slow to take advantage.
