HAT AND CAP DEPABTMENT.
This department £ives the best values of any in
the store, yet there is not one customer in a dozen
who know the value of a Hat when it comes to
prices. We know we could get better prices by
asking them, but we do not want to take advantage
of the trade by putting prices up on goods of which
they do not know the value. This is a good point
to watch all along the line.

This department this season will be in charge of
Miss Alice Nicholson, who has just arrived from
St. I^ouis. She comes highly recommended as a
trimmer, and we are sure the ladies will be pleased
with her. As to prices in this department no one
but a prejudiced person will say that the same
goods can be bought for less money any where in
the State. Miss Nicholson will be pleased to meet
and serve the ladies and will do all she can to
_ "One Price to Everybody,"~J. F. COBB.
