      _________________________

      McTague, Hardware, Stoves, etc., Main Street - One of the handsomest and best selected stocks of stoves and hardware in Galt is that carried by Mr. James McTague in his establishment on Main Street. The premises occupied, which are large and commodious, are well adapted for the display of the stock on hand, being 15x100 feet in dimensions and three stories in height. These are completely filled with a large and complete stock of stoves, of the best manufacture and most elegant designs, from the best makers in the Dominion; general and shelf hardware, cutlery, etc.; also tinware in profusion, the later line being of their own manufacture, which is made for stock or to order. Mr. McTague gives employment to five capable and courteous assistants, who are kept constantly busy attending to the demands of the business, which extends throughout the town and country, and is constantly increasing. The business has been established for the past 26 years and since its inception has annually developed. Mr. McTague is a native of Canada, and is a capable, energetic and enterprising business man, who takes a deep interest in all matters that tend to the welfare and development of Galt. He represented the town for 20 years in the Council, was Reeve for 3 years and Deputy-Reeve for 6 years. He is a gentleman held in high esteem in the community of which he is an honoured member
