This new store is the outgrowth of an old business. The firm was organized in 1878 under the name of Eompen & Marret, with J, Edward Marret as the junior partner. This partnership lasted several years and then the business was taken over by Mr. Marret and operated under his name until Jan- uary 1, 1918, forty years after it was started, when his son-in-law, J. S. Miller, purchased it. From that time until his death, which occurred June 26 of this year, Mr. Marret was inactive in the business, but it continued to run under the partnership name and Mr. Miller says he will not change the firm name, as the name of Mr. Marret has been identified with the business for so many years. Mr. Miller also states that since build- ing the new structure the business of the store has been increased over twenty-five per cent, on account of the increased facilities for handling it. SHOWING THE PUBLIC. The benefits to be derived from the remarkable speediness of the florists' telegraph delivery service are well enough known to those who have made use of it, but there are many people who must be shown before they will even start to think about the advantages. The Colonial Flower Shop, of Pittston, Pa., accomplished this kind of educa- tion with a unique window display, in- tended to point out the speed and eflScacy of telegraph delivery. The service denoted in the display is the delivery of flowers purchased on one side of the ocean and delivered a short time later on the opposite side. The ocean is represented by a small pond of water, with camps and buildings de- noting this side of the Atlantic, while on the other side, as represented, are cottages, with wires strung along de- noting the rapid progress of the tele- graphed message. When lighted at night, the display was particularly at- tractive. MAKE SEPTEMBER SELL FERNS. *' Sale
