We came to Wellington when the dry goods fraternity of the city were fast asleep, and not until we were well estiblished did they find out that we had come to stay. In a year's time we had erected a Groceiy, Hardware and Dry Goods establishments, kept on growing, till at the present writing it covers Thirty: six Thousand square feet of skiing space alone. Our great success has been gained by hard, ceaseless pushing, and by giving the trade of ten thousand people who deal here ft this store every month their goods at a small margin. We were never asleep; if we are we keep one eye open for our customers, and you will never find the grass growing around our feet as we found it four years ago. If we were fast asleep, such values as the following, would never land at your doors. Read on and see P rice Smashin Beginning MONDAY, 20th, and continuing till Dec. 1st. Flannelette.
