GAULT & DODSON. There is nothing that so certainly defines the vim and enterprise of a city as her first-class livery and sales stables, inasmuch as these are the barometers that indicate the pulse of the traveling public and those persons who are fond of a good ride behind a brisk team of roadsters. The establishments in this line in Springfield, Mo., are particularly prominent, the number including the finely-conducted house of Gault & Dodson, who, in all probability, stand at the head in this branch of business in this section. They have an excellent location on Walnut Street, and their stables are fitted with all the modern improvements, being well ventilated, healthy and comfortable. The building is a handsome two-story brick, modern in architecture and very conveniently arranged, and the upper floor is used for storing their carriages, while the lower floor is devoted to their excellent line of stock. These gentlemen keep a superb line of horses and carriages, and furnish first-classs turnouts of every description, and their place is a very popular headquarters for persons who are desirous of hiring a good team and buggy, the policy of the firm being one of strict attention to duty and to their patrons' interests. These gentlemen are old and tried business men, thoroughly understand every detail of their calling and are to be relied upon on all occasions. Their house is deserving the large patronage it receives, and of them it may with truth be said that when they have once secured a patron he is always a patron; a fact which speaks eloquently for the honor, promptness and reliability of the proprietors.
