Thfer. were three drug stores lu Llv
erpool, and Liverpool liad about 7,000
Inhabitants. There was a good deal
about the town and more about the
stolen which wight be called old fash
ioned. In addition to drugs aud fancy
articles each store dealt lu outside
goods. .One was hah" grocery, uuother
liad boots aud shoes and the third sold
agrh ultural implements aud Ohio car
riages, aud Its proprietor was also in
terested In a spring bed aud patent
churn. If auy man had declared his
belief that a straight out drug store
would pay expenses he would have
been called a fool in answer. Things ;
had been going on in this mixed up
way for many yer.rs wheu a stranger
appeared In town and begau loatlug
around the drug stores, lie was a cu
riosity aud a subject of gossip, and
most of the gossipers whittled away
at pine shingles and decided that be
dldn : amount to no great shakes. The
only citizen who sized him up correctly
was Uncle Eben Scheiuerhorn. lie
took his time about it and chewed up
half ;i plug of tobacco before be said:
"Waal, boys, 1 hain't givln' no opiu
ion :?J to how 'laters will pan out this
fall,, but as to that stranger, he's got a
head on him. Yes, slr-ee. you cau see
that lie's got a head on him."
-( , course he's got a head ou him,
but v. hat of It?" asked one of Ills hear
"Never you uiiud never yon uiind."
repl.ed Uncle Eben as be witUM his
left eye and nodded his head In a
km>>. ing way. "Wheu the band begins
to play and the Bengal tiger to roar
you jest remember that 1 said he had
a bead on him."
After a few days the band struck up
?that is, the stranger bought out
Kru 'gist White. The roar of the Ben
gal followed - that is, again Mr. Har
per. the uew man. decided to get rid
of grindstones, corn shelters, patent
chui us. groceries, confectionery ami
top buggies and run a drug store by
itself. He was called n fool by souie
and a lunatic by others, and the rest of
the town predicted that he would go to
the wall In less than three months.
Mr. Harper visited all the business
houses and assured their proprietors
that he didn't proi>ose to carry any of
their lines. That announcement ap
pealed to their selfish interests, and he
made a score of friends at once. He
brought on his family and divided his
cust< n evenly around in the matter
of meats, groceries .and dry goods.
That Increased his list of friends. He
changed the iuterior of his store all
over, put in a display window and a
soda fountain anil one day was ready
for business. Business came, but not
with a rush. People wanted to "wait
and see."
The other druggists were aroused
and meant to hang on to their custom
ers. Mr. Harper might be all right,
but he was cutting a wide swath for
Liverpool. One day he dropped into
the Weekly Herald office and had a
confidential chat with the editor. When
he left it was to go over to the Banner
and have auother confident!! 1 chat.
Cncle Eben knew nothing about these
visits, but a day or two later when
<tome one remarked in his bearing that
the druggist with a head wasn't taking
in a barrel of money per day the old
man bit a fresh bunk off his ping aud
"Don't you worry your gizzard about
that new feller. I was in his store last
night after some sulphur, aud I saw
?unthln' In his eye that told me there
was a hen on."
The "hen" betrayed herself when the
next issue of the Herald appeared. In
a double leaded article, uearly two col
umns long, It attacked the new drug
gist in savage style. It purported to
give his history for mauy years past,
and about the pleasautest thing it said
of him was that be was an escaped
convict That article was <vritten by
Mr. Harper himself, and be paid $15
for its insertion. The excitement
around town was added to a day later
when the druggist sued the Herald for
$100,000 damages. It got still another
boost when the Banner came out with
a two column article aud denied each
and every charge of its esteemed con
temporary. It did more. It boldly
announced that the editor of the Her
ald had spent six months in an Ohio
Jail for steallug hogs. The libeled edi
tor at once sued for heavy damages
and called the other man a thief, rob
ber and pirate.
There were a thousand people in Liv
erpool who said that Mr. Harper ought
to be arrested and who wondered why
It wasn't done, but at the same time at
least half of them sneaked Into his
store to get a closer look at him and,
of course, bought more or less. Sher
iffs were even sent for from the sur
rounding counties in hope that he
might be identified, but It was remark
ed that they all looked silly after leav
ing his store. Reporters came from
some of the big dailies, but never a
note did they Jot down in their books.
When the excitement had continued
for two months it somehow leaked out
that it had all been created by Mr.
Harper In the way of advertising. In
deed an announcement was made to
this effect In both papers, and In those
respective Issues the hustling druggist
bad three full page advertisements. A
few citizens were mad, but most of
them were enthusiastic, and there was
only one drug store in Liverpool after
that. Farmers would drive eight miles
to buy rochelle salts at Harper's, and
the townspeople kept his fingers sore
making change.
"I hain't predictln' about the weather
next whiter," said Uncle Eben. "nbr
the grasshoppers next summer, but I'm
sorter givln* you a hint that we've got
a druggist In this town with a head on
him." v M. QUAD.
