She struck off the high road into a lane, a lane that led to the base of a wilder hill than that where the red cattle were grazing. The crest of the hill was common land, and dark fir-trees made a ragged line against the autumn sky, and the view from the summit was wide and varied, with a glimpse of the great brown cliffs and the dark, grey sea far off to the west, to that dim distance where the Dodman shut off the watery way to the new world. On the landward slope of[Pg 5] that wild-looking ridge was the Mount, Lord Lostwithiel's place, uninhabited for the greater part of the year except by servants, his lordship being the very last kind of man to bury himself alive in a remote Cornish fastness, a long day's journey from the London theatres, and the R.Y.S. Clubhouse at Cowes. Yes, that is what I came in for. Now, I'll tell you what I will do. I will take the money out of the pocketbook, and give you half, if you won't interfere.

Because our salesand earnings keep going up doesn't mean that we're smarter than everyone else, or that we can make ithappen because we're so big. What it means is that our customers are supporting us. If they stopped, ourearnings would simply disappear, and we'd all be out looking for new jobs. So we know what we haveto do: keep lowering our prices, keep improving our service, and keep making things better for the folkswho shop in our stores.
