  • Notes 
    • WM. BUCK.

      If clothes do not make the man they often go a long way towards it. The average New Hamburg citizen appreciates a good fitting suit and he shows his appreciation by patronizing liberally the leading tailor of the place. Mr. Wm. Buck. For he knows through long experience that this shop will make a determined endeavor to please and that it generally succeeds. Mr. Buck has been twenty years in business and has worked up a large trade not only in the village and its immediate vicinity but also in surrounding towns. This fact speaks volumes. He carries a good stock which together with an excellent line of samples, enables the most fastidious customer to procure just what he likes. Four hands beside himself are usually kept busy. Personally Mr. Buck is popular and has the confidence of all classes.
