to have seen that salute: Left hand on the

little boy in an adjoining^sunnner residence.
Her eyes lighted up, then comes that feline
curvature of the sprine, take her photo,
grasp it with your minds eye, add fifty
per cent for extra curvature, and you will
have then only a faint conception of that
salute. Ask M llson—ask llindamnn; they
both do this salute to perfection.

A gentleman out west, who had a very
lucrative business, found to lii< dismay
that lie was gradually losing tr-de. widi-
oui knowing any cause for the falling olf
until he came to Denison, when lie remem-
bered that he had once bought a very choice
lot of liquors and cigars atEppsfein & Bro's
Kentucky Whisky Depot, and had not re-
plenished his stock with the same goods.
Tie went straight to that house, laid in an
other line Jot of those celebrated liquors
; and cigars, for which Eppstein & Bro’s
I are justly popular, took them home and
l was 1 nippy in the discovery, that all hi>
lost customers came back.' and thus lie
found the sure wav of sustaining his trade.
AH those in quest of that class of goods,
do well in profiting bv this lesson, and
come straight to the Kentucky Whiskey
Depot. Eitstkin & Bho’h,
