"Shortly after we opened a Wal-Mart in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, I had a lady come up to me and say,Oh, I just want to thank you so much for coming here. This is the best thing that could have everhappened.' I thanked her and asked her what she did there in town, and she said, 'Well, I run a paintstore right over here, just down in this mall.' Here's a chart that shows the course over the years of that 100 shares: Finally, I hope there's a special place in heaven reserved for my two secretaries, Loretta Boss, who waswith me for twenty-five years, and Becky Elliott, who's been with me now for three years. They deserveit after what they've put up with here on earth. Two days before Maggie received that letter, she had been to the Rectory for the last time. The heavy rain would have prevented her from going since; but there was another reason. Dr. Kenn, at first enlightened only by a few hints as to the new turn which gossip and slander had taken in relation to Maggie, had recently been made more fully aware of it by an earnest remonstrance from one of his male parishioners against the indiscretion of persisting in the attempt to overcome the prevalent feeling in the parish by a course of resistance.

He begged her to allow him to write to a clerical friend of his, who might possibly take her into his own family as governess; and, if not, would probably know of some other available position for a young woman in whose welfare Dr. Kenn felt a strong interest. 鈥淚 daren鈥檛 stay any longer, Miss Deane.

That helped meget access to a lot of information about how they were doing things. I probably visited more headquartersoffices of more discounters than anybody elseever. I would just show up and say, "Hi, I'm Sam Waltonfrom Bentonville, Arkansas. We've got a few stores out there, and I'd like to visit with Mr.
