I' WILLIAMS BBOWN.' '
During the winter months most of
us become more or less exercised over
the matter of stoves and all that the
work implies, so the Watchman report
er! has taken some pains to acquaint
himself with the stove and kindred
lines of trade here. Upon bur . note
book are some items . concerning ' Capt.
Brown, and they are to this effect.
The gentleman in question is from Fay
etteville, this State, and in 1840, while
yet a boy, he tame to Salisbury, his
father the late Allen Brown, then re
siding here. In 1841 or thereabouts,
he began learning the trade of a tin
and copper smith with his brother, J.
D. Brown, and about 33 years ago he en
gaged in business upon his own account.
At the outbreak ot the late war he en
listed and was commissioned 3rd Lieu
tenant in the 4th N. C; nine months
later he resigned, returned to this sec
tion and raised Co. B of the 57th N.
C, with which' he went to the front
with the rank of; Captain", and he re
mained in the service until shortly be-
tore the surrender. In the meantime
he had maintained his business here,
and after the war he again assumed
charge of it. He has had several part
ners, but tor now nearly a year he has
been alone, i He has occupied the same
location for, upwards of thirty years.
Capt. Brown usually empio s three
or four persons and besides doing a
general rane of tin, sheet iron and
copper worl has a considerable busi
ness in the pair of stills. He also
does such outside work as roofinggut
tering,' spouting, &c. In stock he car
ries a general line of cooking and heat
ing stoves from leading foundries of
Albany, Philadelphia, Louisville and
Nashville, and in heaters he, makes a
specialty of the "New Baltimorean"
and the "Sunshine -Fire Place Heater,'
the latter made by K. Painter & Co., of
Philadelphia, and one that can I e pro
nounced to -be without a superior if
having an equal. Prices in all lines
are extremely rtfcisonable this year, and
Capt. Brown has had a most satisfacto
ry business thus far. He looks upon
trade prospects as being very fair, and
old acquaintances and new will find
him ready as ever to give value receiv
ed in the case of every purchase made
at his store. .
: W. SMITHDEAL.
None of the business men of Salis
bury are. better or more favorably
known to the people of this and adja
cent sections of, cou ntry than the gen
tleman to whoioi we now refer. Though
yet, comparatitely speaking, a young
man, he has for a long term of years
been identified withthe m?rcantile in
terests of this his native town, and he
has ever J?eri known as a man who
possessed progressive ideasi Those
ideas have been of a practical charac
ter, too, and have been productive .of
. Mr. Smithde'til entered upOnHhe ac
tualities of mercantile life in the year
1850 as a clerk for J. J. and J. A.
McConnaughey, general merchandise"
dealers, and he continued clerking' un
til enlisting as ,a private soldiei; in the
Fourth North' Carolina regiment, in
1801, In 1802 he returned from the
front and from that time on until the
surrender he filled the position of trans
fer agent here, at Chester and Augusta.
In 1805 he went north,' realizing that
at that time there were; better opportu
nities for securing remunerative em
ployinent in that section than here jat
his old home, and he soon , secured , a
position witlua carpefc'house of Phila
delphia. , Subsequently he entered ?the
employ of a boot and shoe house in the
(Juaker City Jand traveled for it.' ' Upon
returning tojSalisbury- Mr. K Smithdeal
opened a boot '' and shoe ' house ;here.
iVhen he qtut that' business he became
a salesman for R. Crawford & Brb.,
general dealers, 'and soon after became
associated with Crawford & Heili who
opened ageiieral hardware house. In
187 )-Mr. Smi!hd?j 1 organized the firm

, The. visitor to MH SmithdeaFa place
of business will agree with tis that it
has quite as much the appearance of a
'wholesale as of a retail' house,' and we
have no doubt that fully -one half ? of
the annual, trade in the hardware and
kindred departments are at , .wholesale.
And so they should be. As nearl v as
possible Mr.; Smithdeal makesf his pur-
cjuitaes :ox siock airect irom leading
manufacturers of the country and in
such quantities that he can duplicate
Miciunuiiu, naxioiie or oiner jo Doing
bills to advahtage. His expense ' ac
coitnt is comparatively pmall-is an
nual -sales are large-and though he
does no traveling for orders yet; coun
try merchants have found out that he
can and does fill orders at such rates
and with' such promptitude as to make
the house a desirable purchasing point.
Extremely large stocks for a town the
size of this are carried, and complete
assortments are shown of everything
relating to heavy; or builders' hardware,
tools, paintsoils, glass, cutlery, &c.
wagon and carriage, material, and
blacksmith's supplies 'generally receive
careful attention, and by looking close
ly to all the .details of trade the house
maintains its efficiency. : ...
Two very important features of 'Mr.
Smithdeal's business are, farm machnj-'
ery and wagons and carnages. He
sells engines and boilers made b Skin
ner & Wood, of Erie, Pa., and by the
Westinghouse works of Shenectady,
N. Y: He also represents the famous
Geiser Manufacturing Co.T of Waynes
boro, Pennsylvania, and ; the Hagers
town (Md. ) Engine and Machine Com
pany a company (hat is especially
noted for producing the best clover
huller ever offered the people of this or
any other country. Threshers, reapers
and mowers and other implements or
machines from leading factories are
carried, and particular attention is paid
to the Avery and Dixie plows. It is a
fact apparent to all that our farmers
are rapidly learning tnat machine labor
is cheaper and better than manual
labor, and Mr. Smithdeal has certainly
had very much to do in bringing about
this improved condition of things.
We visited his carriage repository
the other day and were astonished at
the number of vehicles he carries in
stock. Besides the wagons and bug
gies set up and standing upon the floor
were stacked away great piles of boxes,
running gear and, the other component
parts of vehicles and in this depart-
ment alone there cannot be much less
than $3,500 to &4,000 of stock carried
We noticed Columbus and. Cortland
work; also from the Whitney Co. of
Syracuse, IN. Y., and the world famous
Studebaker and Tennessee farm wagons
in other words, they are all reliable
goods such goods as the house can
sell without prejudice to jts reputa
We might go into further details
relative to Mr. Smithdeal's business
but the .. foregoing will suffice to con
vey an idea of it, and that is all we
can hope to do. We tan add this!
however: Every visitor to the house
will meet with a cordial reception,
whether he proves a purchasher or
J. M. BB0WN.
"Brown's Variety Store" is an estab
lishment that one can better appreciate
by visiting than by reading discriptive
sketches of it. Upon counters and
shelves and in all manner of recepta
cles are a thousand objects, each of
which has its uses and purposes. There
are family groceries and . provisions,
there are lamps and; lampware, crystal
and Bohemian ware; fancy articles of
one kind ,and another; toys in profus
ion; there' are foreign and domestic
fruits in fact the list is almost an
endless one, and it rather puzzles one
now Mr. Brown can remember what
he has or has not in stock.
' The house as it now is presents Va
rious stages of growth. Its beginnings
were comparatively small, and the ad
vance it has made has been in accord
ance with the well known and recog
nized maxim that uthe gods help those
who . help themselves," and if ever a
merchant in Salisbujry has worked with
a will toward the upbuilding of his
business, .Mr. Brown is one. He is a
young mariahd a Native of this town.
He began irade life here . as a clerk for
"Foster & Horah, and when he quit that
house, ten years ago he established his
present business. He has had no part
ners arid has made ho change ot loca
tion. He has manfully paddled his
own canoe, and by the exercise of tact
and sound judgment he has. been en
abled to sail in deeper waters from
year to year in other words the vol
u me and scope of his trade has ex
panded. ; . . "We like . to chronicle, the success of
our younger merchants they will be
the old merchants of the future, and we
like, to see. them laying the foundations
blioad and., deep and strong . for. future
enterprises. to rest upon. - "
