Should Know
First, That times are generally whatever you
make them. If you have hard times, it is usually
your own fault. You are the architect of your own
fortunes. If you build with the proper foundation
you build right; if you use the wrong material for a
foundation you build wrong. You should always re-
member that the foundation decides the destiny of
the architecturs of your life. You should always
start right in life, and always select the best and
wisest means to pursue.
You Should Know
2d. If your object in life is to achieve success in
any undertaking you should learn to discern be-
tween the way which will bring success, and the
way which will cause failure. You should listen
to reason under all circumstances and never bow at
the shrine of prejudice.
You Should Know
3d. That if you sell your cotton at 4c a pound
and turn around and buy your goods from irre-
sponsible-merchants, you had better make applica-
tion to the poorhouse for board. That it you don't
have the opportunity of spending your money at a
first-class store like Mistrot Bros. & Co, it would
be advisable for you to get 20c for your cotton, but
if you have a, chance of buying at Mistrot's it is not
then necessary that vou get so much for your cot-
ton, as the low price of our goods inflate the price
you have obtained for your cotton.
You Should Know
4th. That if you get $10 for a week's wages and
pay 020 for a suit of clothes ffom irresponsible par-
ties, whose goods are" high bougot, then it would
have been best for you to have gotten $5 for a week's
wages and bave bought your goods at the right
price from Mistrot Bros. & Co.
You Should Know
5th. That a merchant cannot afford to sell with-
out a profit unless he finds out that his customers
are buying their goods from his competitois for
less money than he paid for his. That being the
case we think he does well to get cost, and those
who buy from him have no advantage to gain, and
all to lose.-
You Should Know
6th, That if you sell^your Cotton at 8c a pound
and pay $15 for a suit of clothes of the California
makes which ace being sold at that price in the
bigh-priced stores, it would have been best for you
to have sold cblton at 4c a pound and have gotten
the same suit of California clothes at $5 a suit at
Mistrot Bros. & Co.'s cheap sales.
Yotf Should Know
7th. Th$tthe Cash system is the only balm to
the many aches and sorrows of the human heart, ,

county attorney, and Miss Juliet
Ellis, of. .EsockkaK, were united in
marriage at the home of the bride's
parents on Wednesday' morning of
last week; the Rev. J. J. Cramer
officiating. Percy is well known
to all Fayette county as a true gen-
tleman, upright and honest, and
we believe Miss Ellis has chosen
weli. Miss Ellis is the daughter
of Judge Ellis, of Lockhart, and
one of the prettiest and most ac-
complished young ladies of that
city. 9he has many friends here
who wplcome her back to our city,
having formed her acquaintance
when she was a school teacher in
the public schools here a few years
ago. We join the friends of the
couple in extending congratula-

It solves all questions. It brings relief and con-
tentment and makes life a pleasure. To work and
get the value of your wages in goods is content-
ment. To work and not receive a sufficient remu-
neration for your week's wages when you convert
it into goods, is dissatisfaction and sorrow.
You Should Know
8th. That the credit system is the demon of the
earth who roams at will throughout the land. With
its sharp bladcd scythe it mows down acres and
leagues. It spares not th'e deserts but leaves the
oasis to mark the traveling spot which induces an-
other traveler to try the path also.
You Should Know
9th. That no man fan prosper if be gets 4c and
5c for his cotton and 25c anil 30c for his corn, and
adores at the shrine of the credit god; he may pros-
per for awhile, but hie doom is sealed. The crash
will come and he must sooner or later witness his
own downfall. If he* buys on credit he must get at
least 10c a pound for his cotton or he cannot afford
it. The credit price depreciates the price he has
obtained for his product to the extent of 25 to 50
per cent.
You Should Know
10th. That our customers make their money from
us. They derive all the benefits of our closest
watchfulness over the dry goods markets of the
world. We make our money when we buy. . Our
profit is made in'New York, Boston, Philadelphia
or wherever our purchases are made. We handle
the manufacturer with an iron hand, and we always
insist on the closest margins and the highest stand-
ard of qualities. We make our profit by a correct
handling of the cash, by a knowledge of the details
of all branches of manufacturing, by a constant
watch for the best and the cheapest. Our custom-
ers make their money from us. It matters not
about depression of values, the low prices of what
thev sell, or the low price of wages. Our business
thrives the best when values are the lowest, as the
people then look to us and find io our prices a so-
lution of their sitnation. They find in our prices
a way to make up for the short crops and the low
prices of their products.
You Should Know
llth. That these are the facts which every man,
woman and child in Fayette county should know,
They should know where and how to spend their
money to the best advantage. They should know
Where to get the advantage-in the pnice and qual-
ity. They should know in buying from Mistrot
