N Catering to the Public Ol' Sam'l Beasely used to keep a kind of a general store in one of the towns back home, an' it was his brag that you couldn't stick him on anything in the line of "gineral merchandise." Used to keep a kind of a drug store an' grocery, hardware an" dry-goods, an' 't was about as he said—you couldn't stick him if you let him have time enough to burrow through his stock. They put up a iob on Sam'l one morning—sent a smart Aleck in to interview the ol' man, whilst all the rest of 'em hung around to see an' listen. Sam'l was out in the back room, skinnin' the mold off a big cheese. The smart Aleck asked the ol' man, he says: "Have you got such a thing as a secon'-hand pulpit, Sam'l?" an' Sam'l says, "I dunno as I have, an' I dunno AS I haven't. I got some watches with secon'-hands on 'em," he says. "But about the pulpits, I dunno. You come up-stairs with me," he says. Sam'l, he keel-hauled everything in his store-loft, an' then: "Here's what we're lookin' for," he says. "Bought this one of the Free-Will Baptists over to Harwich. Them Free-Wills pound pulpits somethin' scandalous," he says, "so this one is kind o' wobble- jawed, an' you can take it away for three-fifty," he says. An' the feller bought it. What else could he do? Things hatie changed since Sam'l's time, and the era of specialization has come into the realm of trade.
