It is a pleasure to a uewspaper to chronicle the sncoess of a fellow townsman, or one who has bfen bom and bronght up in the town, and that pleasnre comes to the Argus this week in speaking of the upward move in the Dusiness world made by Herbert C. Watts, of Syracuse, N. Y., Monday. On that day be acqnired by pnrohaae the interest of C. S. Ball in the best optical business in Syracuse. In 1893 Mr. Watts founded for Mr. Ball the business which he has now purchased, and he has seen it gradually grow from a small beginning to the excellent business that it now is. This ias been accomplished by steady application tn business and persistency in doing good work The latter he is ominently fltted to do. He etndied the optical business under Dr. Fleming Carrow, professor of ophthalmology at the U. of M., and graduated from his teaehings a finished optician. Since then he has had five years of experience at the business and it is needless to say they have been well and profitably spent. This is evidenced by his purchase of the business on Monday. Mr. Watts is a son of J. C. Watts, of E. Liberty st. He was born and brought up in Ann Arbor, and left here something over four years ago to go to Syracuse, his present home. His friends in this city, who knew him so well and favorably, are pleased to hear of the present brightness of his material prospects in life and wish him unbounded success in the future.
