A HOME INDUSTRY!
The undersigned takes thia occasion to return his thanks
to the people of Yankton particularly, and to his many
friends throughout Dakota and Nebraska, for the generous
patronage which has been bestowed upon the late firm of
DUDLEY & HAWLEY through the many years in which
that firm has carried on business in this city, and he now
desires to call the attention of these friends and that of
the people generally to the enlarged fkollities, more exten
sive assortment and more commodious rooms, whioh the late
firm had provided and which
he,
& Hawley, now posseses.
In the line of the Hardware trade, and in the manufkoture
of Tin, Copper and Sheet Iron Ware, he claims to have an es
tablishment equal in all respeots to anything in the north
west, occupying three grand rooms, eaoh 26x100 feet in ex
tent. .V
In the future, by constant application to business, he hopes
to see tbe Hardware trade of the region which is naturally trib
utary to to this points centered here, and shall spare no effort to
make it for the interest of the people within this region, to par*
chase their Hardware, Tinware, Copper and Sheet Iron ware,
Stoves, and all other articles in this line from
Yours gratefully and respectfolly,
