|HISTORY OF THE CORNWALL CHEESE AND BUTTER BOARD|
|SMITH HARDWARE COMPANY|
| Arnold N. Smith|
ARLY in 1918, the old established hardware business carried on by H. Pitt since 1865 was purchased by Arnold N. Smith and Harold A. Smith, both lifelong residents of Cornwall. Mr. Arnold N. Smith is a son of Lt.-Col. Robert Smith, K.C., former M.P. for Cornwall and Stormont. Mr. Harold A. Smith is a son of the late G. C. Smith, formerly with the Toronto Paper Company, and latterly carrying on an insurance business in this district.
This firm carries everything in the hardware and building line that can be found in any up-to-date hardware store. Quality goods only are to be found in this store, as is evidenced by the fact that the Smith Hardware Company are sole distributors for such well-known goods as Martin-Senour's 100% Pure Paint, Chi Namel Graining Compound, Jap-A-Lac Stains and Varnishes, Clauss' Guaranteed Scissors, and also distributors for the famous YALE locks and Hardware, Barrett Rubber Roofings, Pratt & Lambert's Enamels and Varnishes, as well as other lines too numerous to mention.

Special attention is paid to farmers' trade and a large stock of the highest grade seeds. Plymouth Rope and Binder Twine are always available.
The Smith Hardware Company carry without question the largest hardware and paint stock in the town of Cornwall, and the ever-increasing number of satisfied customers that deal with the Smith Hardware Company, "Cornwall's Leading Hardware Store," would clearly indicate that the policy of the firm: "QUALITY GOODS AT THE RIGHT PRICE," is a popular one.
