least one dreaded disease that
science has been able to cure in
all its stages and that is Catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only
positive care known to the medi-

Catarrh Cure is taken internally

of the disease and giving the
patient strength by building up

The advice we received quite early in our business career from
an experienced and successful merchant stays with us yet and as it
has its good points we give it here. He said :
Your town will soon find out whether you
are slow or not. This does not imply reckless
buying. It means get ahead of the knowledge
of your customers anticipate their demands. Be
interested interested in the development of your
city's interests producing results on a fair squared
basis on everything you take hold of.

LIQUORS at REDUCED PRICES
On account of the low prices offered for
cotton and the scarcity of money I now
offer my entiro stock of liquors at redur;d
rates. Liquors heretofore sold at $2 per
fallon now sold at 1.75; that sold ai
2.50 now S2; for S3 now S2.50; tho 54
liquors at $3.25. All better liquors' sold a'
proportionately low rales.
a factor in the concerns in whih thft
people are interested.
He went on to say : The master motive in
buying and selling is money. Not because men
love lucre but because money stands for the com-
modities and necessaries of life. You should be
engaged in business to make money; not to
accumulate but to enable you to live. You should
buy your goods where you can make money by
saving it; for a dollar saved is a dollar earned.
In presenting your claims for patronage before
saying a word about the excellence or variety of
your stoek you want to appeal to this master
motive. If you can save money to your patrons
on their purchases ; if it will put money in their
pockets to trade with you you know that other
things being equal you have a strong presump
tion mat you can
Win Their Patronage and Hold It.
It is upon this advice that we have endeavored to conduct onr business. "We Lave
always marked our goods at such low figures that we were confident that a comparison of
our prices would furnish the strongest argument in our favor. In soliciting your patron-
age we "do it in the confident assurance that you will save money by trading with us.
Now a word in general with respect to our stock for the New Year : "We shall spare
no pains to make it complete in every respect ; complete in the variety of goods it com-
prehends in the quality of each article placed on sale and last though not least in prices
that will be put at the lowest possible profit mark. Again wishing one and all a Happy
New Year We remain your appreciative friends
