The lawn sociable at Mia. Clarkson’s
last Tuesday evening was a very agreeable
entertainment to all present. About 80
people were scattered over the lawn, in
the parlor and porches, but the chic* at-
traction seemed to be on the east side of
the house, where the ladies had two long
tables for the guests to enjoy strawberries,
ice cream and cake. The berries were
from Mr. James Martin’s strawberry gar-
den and considering the very dry weather
were quite nice. Mr. H alien beck made
an addition to his already wide-spread
fame as maker of moat delicious Ice
cream, while the number and variety of
cakes eras excellent. In the parlor the
singing of Mrs. Acheson, Messrs, tones.
Brown end Sherwood added much to the
enjoyment nf the evening. Several of
“Buckeye” Down Binder,
“Buckeye” Light Mower,
pleasant, four-handed pieces, and ac-
quitted themselves very creditably.
The uaanimoun'opinion was that it waa
truly a sociable ei the soda! kind. Chairs
and benches in the yard gave the young
people an opportunity for flirtation, and
the little folks had merry games. AU
agreed to attend the next Christian social
wherever it Is, and they find it a pleasant
thing that “brethren can dwell together
in unity.” 4
Mr. Clarkson ^dispensed the ice cream
lavishly and all had as much as they de-
sired. The object eras not so much
money making, as to unite socially the
members of the various societies here.
The proceeds, however, gave the ladies a
nice little sum of $!&.

Democrats Take Hotioe
About two months ago, soon af-
ter the commencement of the great
railroad strike, we marked down
prices on our entire stock to the ex-
tent of from 33 1-3 to 50 per cent.

Sherman, Texas, May 15, ’86.
Members of the County Executive
Committee of the Democratic pRrty of
Grayson county, are requested 10 meet at
WE1SMAN & G2*
the court house in the city of Sherman on
Saturday the 29th day of May, at one
o’clock, p.m , for the purpose of consul-
tation and determining the policy of the
party in the coming fall election.
By order of
Joseph Bledsoe, Ch’n.
The following are the names of the
Democratic Executive Committee of
Grayson county, who are called by Judge
Bledsoe, Chairman, to meet at the court
house on the 29th inst.:
Northeast Sherman—J. H. Dills.
Northwest Sherman—J. W. Finley.
Southwest Sherman—R. M. Neely.

pulse of a moment’s thought; we de-
liberately weighed the loss on one
side and the gain on the other, and
arrived at the conclusion that our
loss in dollars and cents would he
made up in the futurie from the ex-
pansion of our business and from
the popularity that always accrues
from magnanimous actions to a
grateful people. How fully our ex-
pectations have been realized, ia
evident to every citizen in Denison.
Our railroad trade is running up to
a magnitude away higher than we
could expect; the same can he said
of our Country trade; so, to sum up,
our business is booming, while
others are crying “hard times.”
The above cause and effect should
be enough to explain why we are
slaughtering goods. Coupled with
this, we are needing funds for the
purchase of our fall stock. Our
buyer in New York is procuring
greater bargains than the sacrifices
we are now making. So you can
see that money is a power even be-
hind a throne.
Archimedes, the ancient mathema-
tician, once said in explaining] the
power of leverage, “Give me a lever
long enough, and I shall move the
earth.” We say in 1886, “Give us
only a little more funds and we shall
move some of the mossback dry
goods houses of Denison to Potts-
boro, Sherman or some other
village.” Yours truly,
Beirnk & Stknson.
