As a merchant I smile to myself when I hear the proprietor of some high toned store brag about the better class of trade AB a matter of fact he has the worst of it. His trade mentally and morally is several degrees below what they choose to call the common people. Very little milk of human kindness in our mgn- tone population, and as to charity, what they hare of it is as cold as Ice cream. My life has been spent waiting on the common people. I enjoy their simple honesty and their good nature. I even enjoy It when they cuss me, for even then I know they are for me. Neville's store is now, and always has been, run for the common people. They are the people I have to thank for their loyal support which has enabled me to have a home and support my family. I am now selling shoes to the fourth generation.
