DANIEL LUTZ, dealer in tobaccos, cigars &c. Mr. L. commenced his present business about one year ago, but he has been identified with the mercantile interests of the town for the past 23 years. The enterprise of which he is the representative, is rather a new feature for a town of this size, but he has nevertheless proved it a success. His stock of cigars and tobacco is large and complete, and embraces some of the very best brands in the market. Pipes and pouches and in fact everything pertaining to an establishment of this kind is well represented. The enterprise is a model one, and Mr. L. is the very man to make it a success.
