NEW YEAR, in its inception, turns another sp)ke in the wheel of time, and promises to be, at the end of the next twelve months, exactly as the force of circum stances will make it. Some, at the end of this period, by continuous hard work, will reap good results. Some will mourn the vagaries of the fickle goddess. Some will fold their hands and say, "We'll take it as it comes." And another class will modestly follow in the footsteps of success, whether it be gathered in a high or in a lowly calling. We are satis fied with the three hundred and sixty-five days' work of the year 1889, and if the year 1890 can make as good a showing we will have no reason to complain. To brine about this result means fifty-two weeks—six working days to the week— hard work with no letting up. It means that the confidence of every purchaser must not only be obtained, but held. It means that every dollar's worth of merchandise sold at 7 and ■ 9 North Spring must be exactly as represented. In thanking our patrons for the courtesy extended us in the past, we promise to outbid all competitors for a continuation of it in the future, and prove our sincerity by getting down at once to value of dollars and cents.
