THE YORK STORE
The York Store is the only exclusive dry goods store in North Manchester. Courtesy and prompt service as well as the highest quality merchandise are the marks of York's place of business. Their stock is the most complete of its kind in Wabash County.
Mr. York has been in the dry goods business for twenty-four years previous to his coming to this city and he has been in business here for the past five years. His success is the greatest criterion for judging his past. In him Manchester College finds a real friend and booster.

YORK STORE SOLD TO BROOK MAN
The York dry goods store has been sold to P.E. Hanson of Brook, a representative of the new owner taking charge the first of the week. Mr. Hanson is expected in North Manchester in a day or two and until that time there can be no statement as to the policy of the store.
Mr. York, the retiring owner, purchased the store of George Heister fifteen years ago, and he and Mrs. York have lived in North Manchester since that time. Lately his health had failed, and during January and February his condition was such he could be at the store but very little. While improving, it would have been some time before he could have resumed active management, and he decided to sell the business. During the time Mr. York has been in North Manchester, he has made many personal and business friends. He was active in civic affairs, a liberal contributor in civic enterprises, and was highly regarded for his honor and integrity.
