A. MOSES, proprietor of variety store, Chippewa Falls, has a stock which is rarely excelled in Europe or this country. Such a variety of goods is seldom displayed anywhere. Any thing from a jewsharp to a bass viol, guns, pistols, complete fishing outfits, jewelry, silverware, cutlery, etc., from the cheapest to the finest imported articles. If you don't see what you want, ask for it, and Moses will probably find it in his stock for you. He was born in Russia-Poland in 1831. He served for three years and fifty days in the army before leaving Europe, was in the Crimean War, wounded three times. He has traveled over most of the civilized world. He carried on business in New Zealand and the Australian colonies, and was married in Melbourne Oct. 9, 1861, to Martha Marks, a native of London, Eng. In 1870 he came to Chicago, lived there until 1876, afterwards at Winona, Minnesota, for four years, then came to Chippewa Falls.
