"I saw my muff in the snow," she said, "and was stooping to pick it up when someone suddenly threw a cloth over my face and tied my hands. It was all done so suddenly and gently that I had not time to see who it was, and thought it was one of the boys who had done it in jest. The truth dawned upon me when I began to struggle to get free and found myself half-dragged, half-carried through the deep snow and tied to a tree. I was nearly insane with terror. If ever I prayed in my life I prayed then to be released." 鈥淏ut you have won my friendship, Monsieur Bigourdin,鈥?said Corinna, with rising colour. "I am quite convinced that your conclusion is a sound one," said Lord Dalhousie, "but I would like to have Colonel Durnford's opinion in the matter." 97色伦图片 97色伦图片影院 97色色 97色伦图片在线影院 "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.' He didn't say anything, and I droppedthe subject. A few days later I went by to see when we could start setting the fixtures in the building, andI saw that our sign maker, Rayburn Jacobs, already had the 'W-A-L' up there and was headed up theladder with an 'M.' You didn't have to be a genius to figure out what the name was going to be. I justsmiled and went on."Something else about that sign that's worth mentioning. On one side of it, I had Rayburn put "We Sell forLess," and on the other, "Satisfaction Guaranteed," two of the cornerstone philosophies that still guide thecompany. As usual, some of our criticsmostly unions in this casetook a shot at me for this idea. They said I waswrapping myself in the flag and pulling a typical Sam Walton promotion to hide the fact that we sell a lotof import goods. These folks, I'm afraid, are really living in the past. They don't believe in a free market.
