This ad from a relatively local paper in 1866 makes me happy in many ways!

 Run to COHENíS very quick
 For HIGH PRICES is mighty sick,
 If you wish to keep him down
 By the CHEAPEST GOODS IN TOWN.
 Take your CASH and BARTER there,
 He will be polite and fair.
 BARGAINS there you can get
 Ten per cent his profits net.
 So rush along, be in the ring.
 And do your trading while I sing.


 FRESH ARRIVALS every day,
 Cheap and Cheaper buyers say; 
 CALICOS of every Style,
 HOOP SKIRTS there are pile on pile,
 THE ENGLISH PRINCESS SKIRT or three,
 And the DOLLAR SKIRT youíll see,
 WORSTED, FLANNELS, HATS AND SHOES
 CLOTHING ready made to use.
 So donít delay, but push along,
 While I sing this CHEAP STORE song.
 M. COHEN has the SHAKER HOODS
 And BALMORALS of finest GOODS
 The latest Style of BONNETS there
 Youíll find untrimmíd or trimíd with care.
 For GIRLS he has the Hat for Fall
 Or Winter, and can suit them all.
 For BOYS heís got the Velvet Cap,
 The Slick the Cloth and PLUSH WITH Flap.
 So hurry Ďlong in time to get
 Your CROCKERY WARE by piece or set.
 GOOD OLD RIO you can get
 And SUGAR too, that isnít wet.
 There you can get at lowest price
 Your SALT & Dye Stuffs, & your SPICE.
 In short of GROCERIES he will keep
 A Full Supply of Good and Cheap.
 OF HARDWARE he will keep on Hand
 The best sold in this Tar Heel LAND.
 So run along, and take a peep
 At Goods that all agree are cheap.

 In fifty lines I cannot tell
 Of all he has, and how heíll sell,
 But this I know, heís selling cheap,
 And profits large he doesnít reap.
 Heíll take just what you bring to sell,
 And though called ĎJewí will treat you well.
 ďNo dead men wanted here,Ē tis said,
 But let them blow HIGH PRICE is dead;
 So Iíll advise you call and try
 AT COHENíS when you wish to buy.


 Hillsborough Recorder, October 2, 1866.

    I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if
    you don't mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts
    in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
