William G. Darneille


A Clean Well-Kept Grocery House –

A Splendid Place at Which to Trade

Located in the Brown Block, opposite the Post Office in our busy little city, is one of our most progressive, up-to-date stores.  The first thing that attracts they eye on entering the store is the elegant manner in which the large and complete stock is displayed.  Even a casual inspection will convince any one that nothing is lacking which goes to make up a complete and first-class stock of staple and fancy groceries and provisions.  The line of canned goods is complete and contains only the best brands packed.  Fresh fruits and vegetables are received daily in their seasons, and the line of dried fruits is second to none.  The line of teas and coffees deserve special attention for they embrace the best grades the market affords.  The stock of candies and confectionary is the best in the city.  Country produce is given special attention, and when the farmer brings his products to this store, he is always sure to get the very best, for nothing but strictly first-class goods are handled.  

The proprietor, W. C. Darneille, is an energetic and progressive merchant and is a pleasant and courteous gentleman, and is always pleased to see you.  Commencing at the very bottom fourteen months ago, he has, by perseverance, industry, and economy, placed himself on the high road to success, where he is now.  Believing in honest weighs, full measures, and pleased customers are the very best advertisements a merchant can have, he will always be found striving to please you when you favor him with a call.  His business is steadily increasing and bids fair to rival any house in the county.
