i RHYL. LoNG FIRM OUTWITTED.- Nothin comes imiss to a "general" dealer, especially if larketabie commodities can be got "on the heap." We have in Rhyl a dealer of the most 'eneral description cor, livable. All things his man can get to his hands-from a needle 0 a ship's anchor, from a sprat to a sturgeon, )r a pear to a pine apple-are acceptab1 All rades in their turn are honoured' with his -astom. And he his above any narrow-minded )rejudice: he will buy of anybody-that will rust him. He objects on princple to remit cash with order (or at any time, for that matter, if he can possibly help it). It is won- lerful the number of 'cute business people he has succeeded in gulling." But occasionally has succeeded in gulling." But occasionally jven "Long Firm" himself is outwittea. Last, week, for instance, he over-reached him- lelf. A tradesman in the town, bearing a I similar name to that of the head and body) of his no orious firm," is in the habit of dealing with a Chester wholesale house. This fact ividently came to the knowledge of Long Firm, who favoured the house with the following order —i ——— street, Bhyl, 18/2/88. Or Sir, Pleue send me this day per pat tender train the following order and oblige,-Your Obt, W. s s. 6 Reams Best Note Paper. •50) Befit Envelopes. 12 Doz. Id. Pickets Notepaper. The reader will observe the italicised words. These were underlined in the original, to de- note "urgency" no doubt. The "urgency" plea is an old-fashioned dodge of this person. Delay would mean an inquiry, and that would be disastrous. Persons in the trade will wonder perhaps how the suspicions of the warehouse- man were not aroused by the unbusiness-like way the order was worded 1 But he, knowing there was a customer of the name in Rhyl, audi believing doubtlessly that, the goods were ur- gently required, thought more of their dispatch than of the way in which they were ordered. The parcel was forwarded. However, suspicion was afterwards aroused, and the telegraph wires flashed instructions to atop delivery at Rhyl. How far this unmitigated scoundrel has carried on his nefarious trade he himself only knows. It is a fact that he hawks goods at half the retail prices, and well he might, for the original cost to him is nil It would be easier to shoot a rhinoceros with snipe shot than to rid the town of this pest by exposure. The remedy is in the hands of those who purchase from him. They cannot but know the character of the man, and their own common sense will tell them that goods honestly got by cannot be sold for the prices he asks. Let them consider how they assist to tarnish the commercial reputation of the town, by support- ing a commercial leper.
