For example, we've got one store in Panama City, Florida, and another only five miles away in PanamaCity Beach, but actually they're worlds apart when it comes to their merchandise mix and their customerbase. They're entirely different kinds of stores. One is built for tourists going to the beach, and the other ismore like the normal Wal-Mart, built for folks who live in town. That's why we try our best to put amerchant in charge of each store, and to develop other merchants as the heads of each department inthose stores. If the merchandise mix is really going to be right, it has to be managed by the merchandisersthere on the scene, the folks who actually deal face to face with the customers, day in and day out,through the seasons. Frederick remained at Reitwein four days. He was very unjust to his army, and angrily reproached his soldiers for their defeat. It is true that, had every soldier possessed his own spirit, his army would have conquered, or not a man would have left the field alive.

"I remember him saying over and over again: go in and check our competition. Checkeveryone who isour competition. And don't look for the bad. Look for the good. If you get one good idea, that's onemore than you went into the store with, and we must try to incorporate it into our company. We're reallynot concerned with what they're doing wrong, we're concerned with what they're doing right, andeveryone is doing something right."CLARENCE LEIS: "We were flying to Fort Smith in the spring of 1962, and Sam was piloting the plane over the BostonMountains. It was that Tri-Pacer by then, not the original plane that we had made a lot of trips in. Sampulled this card out of his pocket, on which he had written down three or four names, and he handed it tome and asked me which one I liked best. They all had three or four words in the title, and I said, 'Well,you know, Scotch as I am, I'd just keep the Walton name and make it a place to shop.' I scribbled'W-A-L-M-A-R-T' on the bottom of the card and said, 'To begin with, there's not as many letters tobuy.' I had bought the letters that said Ben Franklin, and I knew how much it cost to put them up and tolight them and repair the neon, so I said, 'This is just seven letters.'

At three o鈥檆lock of a dark and misty morning, the Austrians from the west, the south, and the east rushed upon the sleeping Prussians. At the same time, an attack was made upon the left wing of the Prussians, which was a feint to bewilder them, and to prevent re-enforcements from being sent to the right wing. For five hours there was a scene of tumult, confusion, and horror which can neither be described nor imagined. The morning was dark, the fog dense, and the Prussians, though ever on the alert, were taken by surprise. No one in the army of Frederick467 thought either of running or of surrendering. It was a hand-to-hand fight, with bayonets, and sabres, and butts of muskets. Marshal Keith, after receiving two bullet-wounds which he did not regard, was shot through the heart.
