� Among other things, Walton Enterprises owns banks in several towns around here. Jim and a partnerown the local newspaper, theDaily Record. The story of buying theRecord shows just how far we'vecome from those days when Helen could just sashay through the store and pick up what she wantedapractice, by the way, that I always frowned on. Back before we went public with Wal-Mart, I bought thenewspaper figuring that we would have a cheap place to print our circulars. I think I only paid $65,000for that old paper. When we went public, though, some New York lawyers came down and told us wehad to sell the paper to Wal-Mart because otherwise we would be taking advantage of the publiccompany if we continued to print the circulars. So we sold it to Wal-Mart at cost, about $110,000 bythen. Well, years later, Jim decides he wants to buy the paper. So we had an outside consultant come inand tell Wal-Mart what it was worth. Jim and his partner paid $1.1 million for that darned paper. It'sbeen marginally profitable at best, and it quit printing Wal-Mart circulars years ago. The point I'm tryingto make is that we as a family have bent over backward not to take advantage of Wal-Mart, not to pressour ownership position unfairly, and everybody in the company knows it. � 北京赛车正规投注盘 Among other things, Walton Enterprises owns banks in several towns around here.

We certainly have had more than adequate funds in this familyfor a long timeeven before we got Wal-Mart cranked up. Here's the thing: money never has meant thatmuch to me, not even in the sense of keeping score. If we had enough groceries, and a nice place to live,plenty of room to keep and feed my bird dogs, a place to hunt, a place to play tennis, and the means toget the kids good educationsthat's rich. No question about it. And we have it. We're not crazy. Wedon't live like paupers the way some people depict us. We all love to fly, and we have nice airplanes, butI've owned about eighteen airplanes over the years, and I never bought one of them new. We have ourfamily meetings at fine places like the Ritz-Carlton inNaples,Florida, or the Del Coronado inSan Diego. I've got to tell you, it drove the Ben Franklin folks crazy. Not only were they not getting theirpercentages, they couldn't compete with the prices I was buying at. Then I started branching out furtherthanTennessee. Somehow or another, I got in touch by letter with a manufacturer's agent out ofNewYorknamed Harry Weiner. He ran Weiner Buying Services at505 Seventh Avenue. That guy ran a verysimple business. He would go to all these different manufacturers and then list what they had for sale. This was a very serious suggestion. None of these sovereigns professed to be influenced by any other considerations than their own interests. And it was manifest that Austria could easily outbid Prussia, if determined to purchase the French alliance. For a moment the king was silent, apparently somewhat perplexed. He then said, 鈥淗is very flute,鈥?Carlyle writes, 鈥渕ost innocent 鈥楶rincess,鈥?as he used to call his flute in old days, is denied him ever since he came to Cüstrin. But by degrees he privately gets her back, and consorts much with her; wails forth, in beautiful adagios, emotions for which there is no other utterance at present. He has liberty of Cüstrin and the neighborhood. Out of Cüstrin he is not to lodge any night without leave had of the commandant.鈥? � � � THOMAS JEFFERSON, EARLY WAL-MART DISTRICT MANAGER, HIRED FROMSTERLING STORES, LATER.
