ELLINGTON, Proprietor HICKORY, NORTH CAROLINA S POOR WORKMANSHIP Is high at any price, this everyone knows; then why have your watch suffer for a small difference in price. Good workmanship demands a fair price, the law of supply and demand regulates this. Good watchmakers arc scarce and command a good salary. There fore their labor cannot be sold cheap or in competition with poor watchmakers; as they as a rule arc glad to get most any price for their labor. These things have- always been and will always be. But we are the cheapest in' the' 'ehd,sd this will always be. GEO. E.
