Business Notices. 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 4«—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 the lily or gild refined gold by attempting to improve on, that, but it should be a source of comfort ;to the tea drinkers of Ashburton and sur•rounding districts that they can now proIcurp. the finest Teas at my establishment [for much less money. I have just received a fresh consignment of Nelson, Moate, and Co.’s Poke Blended Teas, in jackets and boxes. I have also opened up an assortment of Fancy Goods, and fruits in variety, are constantly arriving, Iso that my. patrons may have plenty to ichose from at the coming festive season. |l wish' all my kind customers a merry Christmas arid a happy New Year.
