I really don't know what they thought, but I wasn't about to cooperate with them. So they found out allthese exciting things about me, like: I drove an old pickup truck with cages in the back for my bird dogs,or I wore a Wal-Mart ball cap, or I got my hair cut at the barbershop just off the townsquaresomebody with a telephoto lens even snuck up and took a picture of me in the barber chair, andit was in newspapers all over the country. Then folks we'd never heard of started calling us and writing usfrom all over the world and coming here to ask us for money. Many of them represented worthy causes,I'm sure, but we also heard from just about every harebrained, cockamamy schemer in the world. Iremember one letter from a woman who just came right out and said, "I've never been able to afford the$100,000 house I've always wanted. Will you give me the money" They still do it to this day, write orcall asking for a new car, or money to go on a vacation, or to get some dental workwhatever comesinto their minds. It was the aim of Prince Charles to get between Frederick鈥檚 encampment at Chrudim and his French allies, under Marshal Broglio, at Prague. When discovered by Frederick, the Austrian army was on the rapid march along a line about fifteen miles nearly southwest of Chrudim. It thus threatened to cut Frederick鈥檚 communication with Prague, which was on the Moldau, about sixty miles west of the Prussian encampment. The310 forces now gathering for a decisive battle were nearly equal. The reader would not be interested in the description of the strategic and tactical movements of the next two days. The leaders of both parties, with great military sagacity, were accumulating and concentrating their forces for a conflict, which, under the circumstances, would doubtless prove ruinous to the one or the other. A battle upon that open plain, with equal forces, was of the nature of a duel, in which one or the other of the combatants must fall.

At store openings, we'd stand on the servicecounters and give away boxes of candy to the customers who had traveled the farthest to get there. Aslong as it Was fun, we'd try it. Occasionally it blew up in our face. We didn't have systems. We didn't have ordering programs. We didn't have a basic merchandiseassortment. We certainly didn't have any sort of computers. In fact, when I look at it today, I realize thatso much of what we did in the beginning was really poorly done. But we managed to sell ourmerchandise as low as we possibly could, and that kept us right-side-up for the first ten yearsthat andconsistently improving our sales in these smaller markets by building up our relationship with thecustomers. The idea was simple: when customers thought of Wal-Mart, they should think of low pricesand satisfaction guaranteed. They could be pretty sure they wouldn't find it cheaper anywhere else, and ifthey didn't like it, they could bring it back. CHAPTER XXXIV. THE PARTITION OF POLAND. War has its jokes and merriment, but the comedies of war are often more dreadful than the tragedies of peace. Frederick, in his works, records the following incident, which he narrates as 鈥渟light pleasantry, to relieve the reader鈥檚 mind:鈥?3 鈥淎s the prince was anxious to come up with his majesty again, and knew not where he would meet him, we had to be very swift in the business. We found the king, with Anhalt and Winterfeld, by-and-by, sitting in a village in front of a barn, eating a cold pie there which the Marquis of Anhalt chanced to180 have with him. His majesty, owing to what he had seen on the parade-ground, was in the utmost ill-humor. Next day, Saturday, he went a hundred and fifty or two hundred miles, and arrived in Berlin at ten o鈥檆lock at night, not expected there till the morrow, so that his rooms were locked, her majesty being over in Monbijou giving her children a ball.鈥?
