I
i A trip over town and a few
minutes spent with each of our
merchants has revealed the fact
; that Prescott is on the upward
move along commercial line1*.
Below we give a few things that
some of our most prosperous
business men had to say when
approached on the question of
‘ How are you getting along
from a business standpoint?”
.
Uncle Haley Kershaw was
j the first that we saw and his
was. “Quite well thank you. I
am going to move the first of the
I year back on Front street where
I did business so many years
successfully, and am looking
forward to a great business next
year.”
0. R. McDaniel, president of
the McDaniel Hardware Co.,
says, “Business has been good
tnis year and we are expecting a
splendid Xmas trade and will
! the first of the year increase our
stock. We expect to either
move our grocery department to
the building now occupied by
Kershaw or else fill it with a
complete line of wagons and
S buggies.”
Dopular institution had enjoy* d
one of the best years of its ex
istence. He informed us that
some changes were on foot for
this bank that would make it
one of the safest banking house?
in the state.
The Prescott Supply and
Hardware Co. notwithstanding
their recent los3 by fire will soon
be ready to accomodate their
large trade. Mr. H. A. Hamil
ton,the president of the concern,
told us that they would com
mence the erection of their large
store within the next few days j
and would push its completion as
rapidly as possible. He said:
“We have had^ajjood trade this
year and feel very grateful to
our many customers. ”
Dr Marsh, proprietor of Mon
crief Drug Store, had just com*
into the store from a visit to the
sick and answered our querry
with a smile, saying “yes, busi
ness has been reasonably good
this year. There is some sick
ness now and we look for that to
abate and give us more time to
look after our Xmas trade which
we expect to be good”.
Picayune Patrons Pay for Your Paper
WE ARE nearing the close o. another year. We are right up to
another Xmas, and of course we want to buy some things for our
I i children for that occasion, and we ask every one that possibly can to call at
the Picapune Office arc! SETTLE FOR THEIR PAPER, all arrears and
put yourself up for the good year of 1911. This will give us some money
|i to operate on and will not hurt you in the very least. REMEMBER, that
' |i
Jj the amount YOU OWE US is small to you, but all of it put together
amounts to a gooil deal to us. Renumber us for Christmas. If you can t
come send a check or money order.
Jake Suckle said to us, ‘Toll |
the people that my business has
t>cen exceedingly good this yeai
and that I am still headquaiters
for clothing and gents furnish
ing.” He is one of our very
best merchants and is spreadini
all the time.
Wat White, who is one of thej
young men that was reared in
! Prescott and who has always
| took a lead in the development
of the city, was next seen. ”i
have no complaint to make of my
business. It has been satisfac
tory to me the present year and
the prospects for a sph ndid trade
this winter is flattering. We
anticipate no changes in our
business and expect to cater to
the trading public for their busi
ness by giving them value re
ceived.”
Knox Arnold tells us that on
the Q. T. that he was making
money, but did uot care for the
old maids of the town to catch ;
on. That he was enjoying
"blessed singleness” and if
they actually knew that he was
"Lousey” with the filthy lucre
that he would not have time to
I look after his extensive business
and give any time to the duties
of Chairman of the Street Com
mittee. Now, girls, we have
given you the tip, get busy.
The next place we stopped was |
at the Nevada Couniy Bank. (We |
|didn’t draw anything but our;
breath.) O. B. Gordon, the;
!clever cashier, told us that this!
Lee Biakely was all smiles
when we entered his place oi bu
siness and met us wit . a “Good
morning, what can 1 show you?
Oh. business is good and get
ting better every day. Wo arc
anticipating a good trade during
the holidays, and trusting to a
kind Providence that we will have
a great year before us.”
J. K, Hamilton says “Why it
has actually spoiled my Domino
buisness. I cannot iind time to
play any more. It keeps me
busy all the time waiting on the
immense trade we have.”
We stepped into the establish
ment of W.B. Waller and every
body was busy. Will said.
“Certainly we are pleased with
our business, and we are loaded
for Bear when it comes to Xmas
goods. Something for the whole
family, from Pa down to baby."
Mrs. Tealfanswers, “ Yes, my
buiness has been all that I could
wish. We nave had our share of
the Millinery trade and hope to
merit in the good year to
follow.”
We found every body in a rush
at the Prescott Hardware. “How
is buisness Dan?” we asked.
“Oh, fine, it could not be much
better. We are to busy to talk ad j
come around nextfweek. We
think we will have something to
say to the people about Xmas
shopping. We have had a fine
business and expect to do an im
mense lot of it during Xmas, J
Continued on Faye £
/!^im in food must therefore act as a poison.”
