M. O'Brien 1899M. O' Brien (believed to be Michael).. is again restocking his large apartments. A prolonged description might be given of what is to be seen and what is being done at this up to date establishment, but a personal visit to this place is advised as this will best convey a realizing sense of the completeness and perfectness of the system pursued and the advantages accruing to patrons. It is a remarkable place, well worthy of inspection and wide patronage. November 2, 1899 Shakopee Argus

* We believe this to be a reference to the grocery store.
