SR. B. LORYEA, The Druggist,
To the Public:
Believing that my training in mer
cantile pursuits has fitted me to un
dertake a mercantile business vent
ure on my own account, and having
and abiding faith in those with
whom I have spent the whole of my
life, I have decided to open up a gen
eral mercantile business in the town
of Manning,opposite the court house,
where it is my purpose to establish a
business which will give the trading
public every advantage that lifelong
experience and a thorough knowl
edge of the wants of the people can
I propose to do business upon busi
ness principles and in accordance
with the demands of progressive com
petition. I do not expect to be here
today and somewhere else tomorrow,
but I have pitched my tent in my na
tive county to stay.
In the selection of my stock I feel
sure of being able to please the most
exacting, both as to style and qual
ity, and as to quantity, there will be
no complaint on that score as the
markets of the world are open to me,
and my purchases already made will
convince a most scrutinous public
that I am prepared to meet competi
tion from whatever source it may
come, and that those who have been
posing before the people as "leaders"
may well look to their laurels, as I do
not intend to be found in the rear
rank in this mercantile battle-I am
not built that way.
On every train my stock is arriv
ing, and it comes from the very best
markets. All that I ask is for the
people to come to my store and in
spect for themselves. It will be my
earnest endeavor to bring to Man
ning a trade which has heretofore
drifted to other markets and to ac
complish this, I realize the founda
tion must be laid at the beginning
by keeping up-to-date goods at up
I cordially invite the people of
Clarendon and adjoining counties to
come to my store, and if I do not con
vince them of my ability to sell them
goods at prices to induce them to
buy from me, I will acknowledge the
fault to be mine.
In this announcement I will not at
tempt to particularize any special
line of goods, but when all of my
stock has arrived I shall quote prices
which will compare with any mer
cantile house doing a legitimate bus
iness in the State. I shall not adver
tise an article at a price less than the
wholesale cost, and "be out of it"
when the purchaser calls for it; those
tricks can only work for a short time
and are bound to react unon those
who resort to such deceiving tactics.
This is no temporary venture on
my part; I have started this busi
ness as my life's work, and with the
advantages I am so fortunate to enjoy
I feel satisfied the people will give to
me all of the encouragement my fa
cilities and energy will merit.
I have secured the services of Mr.
Preston B. Thames and Miss Hattie
Bagnal to assist me; the former is a
man of experience and needs no in
troduction to the people of this coun
ty, and the latter is a young lady
well qualified and will make my lady
customers feel at home when they
visit my store. Respectfully,
Exacting, economical and critical buyers
included, are urgently requested to call and
