      P.H. Good, Groceries, Crockery, Glassware, Wines and Liquors, King Street - There are many old established business houses in Berlin that have grown up with the growth of the town, and met with deserved success. Among merchants most prominently connected in this respect is Mr. P.H. Good, whose grocery establishment is located in the Canadian Block on King Street. This gentleman first started the business in 1865, and for the past 21 years has steadily and solidly advanced. The premises occupied, which are large and commodious, suitably and tastefully fitted up for the requirements of the business, are 20x75 feet in dimensions. Here is carried a large and well selected stock of staple and fancy groceries, choice brands of teas and coffees, table delicacies, condiments, hermetically sealed goods, etc.; also a choice and handsome assortment of crockery and glassware, and imported and domestic wines and liquors. Mr. Good gives steady employment to three careful and competent assistants, who are always ready to show goods whether purchases are made or not, although the quality and variety of the goods carried, and the rock bottom prices at which they are sold, are sure to effect a sale. Mr. Good is a native of Canada and is an honorable and enterprising business man, and one who merits well of the community.
