IT is not altogether a new idea, when business people burst into rhyme in their advertisements. Our grandfathers and grandmothers have read some excrutiating poetry in advertisements in their time just as we do sometimes now. From an old newspaper dated a while after the Flood, a tea dealer, expatiating on the merits of his tea, has the following ‘ — “ For lords and ladies it is fit; Seven shillings is the price of it.” I’m not going to paint tho lily or gild refined gold by attempting to improve on that, but it should bo a source of comfort to the tea drinkers of Ashburton and surrounding districts that they can now procure the finest Teas at my establishment for much less money. 1 have just received a fresh consignment of Nelson, Moate, and Co.’s Pure Blended Teas, in packets and boxes. I have also opened up an assortment of Fancy Goods, and fruits in variety are constantly arriving, so that my patrons may have plenty to chose from at the coming festive season. I wish all my kind, customers a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. H. M. Carson’s New Fruit and Italian Warehouse (next Bank of New Zealand), East street.
