Opening Day * Grand Succcm—The
Cat Humps Himself—Attracts
Crowds of Bargain Seekers.
One of the most successful tales
ever inaugurated at any time or
place is Myrick's Great Unloading
Sale which began yesterday at 9
One of the unique and exciting
opening features was the "cat
chase." Promptly as advertised the
cat was turned loose to the tender
mercies of the crowd of small boys
who had congregated far in advance
of the advertised time in front of the
store. With the cat well in the lead
of the yelling bunch of youngsters,
fur on end and a camel hump every
jump his "Egyptian Reverence" lead
the chase down Main street, up west
third for a block, down an alley and
was finally surrounded in a heap of
discarded implements and captured.
"Dutch" Brazil, the victor, brought
the cat back to Myrick's and was
rewarded with a bright silver dollar.
Of hardly less interest was the
opening event for the men, just after
the last straggler in the cat chase
had passed up west third street. Of
the hundred or so gentlemen collect-
ed in front of the store, the first fifty
pushing, persistent persons to enter
the store were awarded a ticket good
for a chance at any $25.00 suit of
clothes in the house. When a small
boy was placed on a counter and
reached a hand into the box and
drew forth a stub numbered "43,"
Lewis Mcfiride held up his eager
right hand announcing himself the
The store was crowded yesterday
from the opening until the closing
hour with eager seekers after Mr.
Myrick's big bargains. The faces

The Democratic Pledge.
It appears that the State Demo-
cratic Executive Committee has re-
fused to require the "Pledge" to be
printed on all the ballots, but has
referred the matter to each county
committee. If the county committees
follow the law ail the primary tickets
will have the pledge printed thereon.
Section 114 of the Election Laws
reads: "No official ballot for pri-
mary election shall have on it any
symbol or device or any printed
matter except a primary test, to be
uniform throughout the State, which
shall read as follows :
'I am a Democrat and pledge to
support the nominees of this pri-
mary,' and any ballot which does
not contain such test printed above
the names of the candidates thereon
shall be void and shall not be count-
ed." Then if a county should not
print such pledge on the "Official
Ballot," the primary election held
in that county would be null and void
and the votes should not be counted.
In the case of a contest, the votes of
a county, not having such a pledge,
would be thrown out. If we are to
follow the law, let us abide the letter

It is well understood that there are many ail-

care of the family physician. In the slight ail-

employed. It is because of this fact that the
Penslar remedies have been prepared and are
offered to the pnblic. They consist of a series
of well made, scientific preparations, each one

the ones which experience has shown to be effec-

ful study in each case.

There is nothing secret about the composition
of the PENSLAR REMEDIES. Their active
constituents are standard remedies of the Phar-
macopoeia and in every case the ingredients are
plainly stated. They are compounded by
pharmacists who have made a study of the art
of combining remedies, and no pains have been
spared to render them pleasant and palatable,
so far as this result can be secured without the
sacrifice of efficiency.
Furthermore the PENLAR REMEDIES are
guaranteed by the manufacturers to conform to

Act, the label in each case bearing the guaran-
