TJt W -WW ft - 1 W r m v t am v. f - i A. M. FITCH. In describing the business Interests of Wellington we cannot Interest our readers more, than by giving tbe history of one of the leading mercantile industries of tbe town. Twenty-one years ago this summer Mr. A. M. Fitch put a stock of clothing and furnishing goods, into the only avail able room at that time, a small wooden 18x24 room, one of the Huntington relics, brought here on wheels, situated on the South side oi Liberty street, and com menced business under the name of the "New York Clothing House." Prevl 0U8 to that time the clothing business of this section of the country, had been con ducted on a bantering principle, charge all that conscience, or want oi conscience would allow, and take all that could be obtained. Merchant and customer would wrestle over the price uf goods, as fiercely as Jacob and tbe unknown wrestled at Peniel, until both becoming weary of tbe contest, a compromise would be effected at some point between what was first ask ed and what was first offered, and the weary customer would wend his way homeward, feeling that if he bad paid two prices for his suit, he had saved a "right smsrt sum" by his sagacity, argument and physical and mental endurence, and the cheeky merchant would stretch his weary carcass upon a couch in some secluded corner and deplore the condition ol a bus iness that required the asking of twenty five dollars for a suit of clothes that he would have to sell for fourteen, fifteen, eighteen or twenty dollars, according to the endurance or bantering qualities of his customer, or the amount of time he could spare to conduct a trading wrestle. The clothing business of the country was in such repute, that any man, no matter what his nationality or previous condl tion of servitude, who would engage in it, was dubbed a "Jew" tad unworthy to be believed and the finger of derision was pointed at him, as though he was respon sible for the murder committed on Cal sry, eighteen centuries ago. Mr.. Fitch believed that such a condition was en tirely wrong, that one man's money was as good as another's; that the principle of making a pleasant,' agreeable customer pay mora fol good than a disagreeably ,Jwlr3r and ATTENTION AH!

Buch a system at that time was considered an Innovation, and caused more comment than a hand organ with monkey accompaniment ' Merchants within competing distance sut up a Howl and complained in the wholesale markets that Fitch had ruined prices and demoral ized trade. Nevertheless the people gen erally appreciated the "innovation" and came from the surrounding country to trade, when bargaining did not produce the ennui of the fighting of a battle. Mr. Fitch soon found that bis room was too small and he rented the old Bank build ing, and built on an addition which be thought would afford sufficient room, but in three years bis business hod Increased so that more room was needed. He rent ed the largest room in the Union Block but in a few years he found his quarters too small, and in company with Messrs. Yischer and Oiterbacher, he purchased a site on the South side ot Liberty street and built the commodious reom which has always been known as the New York Clothing House, where he did a thriving business for several years. Five years ago he sold his stock and went west, hop ing to find a better country and healthier climate, but after traveling from Wash ington Territory to Mexico, he concluded that Lorain County wis as good a place as could be found, and returned and engag ed in the Clothing and Famishing busi ness In Elyrla. This spring he reopened tbe old store in Wellington where will be found everything needed in the line of men's and boys' clothing and furnishing goods, all Strictly New, of the beet work manship, and at the lowest possible cash prices. Mr. Fitch spends several days each year with one of the best de signers of patterns, in Rohcester, New York, has his patterns made expressly for him, and bis work done on contract, and prides himself on furnishing clothing equal In every respect, and superior in many, to tbe best tailor work, and at the lowest ready made prloaT . . .
