Semi-Annual Great Green Tag Cut
Price Sale—The King of Money Saving
SATURDAY, JANUARY 17
A SEVEN TIMES tokt tale is the ttory of the SEMI-ANNUL GREAT GREEN
TAG CUT PRICE SALE at HARVEY’S. Greater and better each time,
better and bigger this time than ever before. Better because the prices are made
lower, bigger because $20,000 more stock goes into this matchless sale, much of it
NEW GOODS, spring’s choicest forerunners of fashion’s conceits. Preparations
for this worthy sale have been proceeding for many months. Jrfkt as the Xmas
holidays go into the perspective and enter the hall of memory the GREEN TAGS,
jealons of our record-breaking holiday selling, step to the front, and by right of
might, of precedent, of worthiness, claim the right of way, and it is conceded;
the BIG STORE, the home of prices, are sub-normal, surrenders, and the
GREEN TAGS over-run it. The main floor, -the upstairs, the balconies and the
show windows gladly welcome the hosts of GREEN. A merry spirit pervades
the store. The decorations tor onr Great White Sale give way to living green,
and winged victories forecast the success of the first GREAT GREEN TAG
y SALE for 1903.
STORE CLOSED THURSDAY AND FRIDAY,
hou-e ; not an art cle but what has its price marks lowered by the little GREEN
TAGS. Some goods will be epld at a small margin of profit, others at cost, and
still others below cost This is our cleaning up tim°, and if we break even in
____profits and expenses we are satisfied. It’s the volume of sales that interests us
more now tl an gain.
A Grand Tribute to the Worth of this Sale
reaching to other towns besides Denison. There has never been a meritorious
thing yet that wasn’t counterfeited, but the spuriousness of the counterfeit is
always attested by the success of the genuine, so we consider this “apeing” of
our Great Green Tag Sale by people who are always ready to appropriate the
ideas ot others as the most convincing proof of its merits.

Denison’s Original Tagger. 306-308 Main Denisoi
I., Denison, Texas
Washington, Jan. 24—The coal
queation took a novel and startling
turn in Congreaa today, after many
daya ot hot air. The House debat-
ed the Way* end Meana Committee
bill providing tor rebate*, and at the
appointed time patted it, wi>h hut
six dissenting vote*. Then the bill
went to the Senate, »h ch had shr rt
ly before beard a characterise
speech from Senator Til man, who
pitchforked the republican* in the
most vigorous manner.
When the Hou-e bill came over it
received immediate consideration,
and the astonishing thing waa that
without unusual delay an amend-
ment was adopted carrying into ef-
fect the terms of the Culberson and
Vest resolution* placing anthracite
cosi on the free list.
Back to the House went the bill
with this unexpected and radical
amendment embracing the demo-
cratic idea of dealing with the coal
situation. The republican majority
was astounded at the change in the
•ituation, but it acted. It concurred
in the amendment, and than the
democrats broke into prolonged
cheers, while the republican* could
only imilk and tay nothing. True,
free coal had come about at the
hands of a republican Congress, but
the majority were whipped and
spurred to unwilling, action by an
unrelenting minority.—Dallas News
Th« Prohibition Status.
The first of the week the prohi-
bitionists filed a petition with the
county commissioner’* court asking
that a county election be ordered.
Tuesday the antis, by attorney, ap-
peared before the court and re-
quested that the election be ordered
and to take place on the 31 st of
Januiry. This did not suit the
pros, as the poll tax disfranchising
act would not be m effect. Both
parties argued their respective wish-
before the court. The next day,
-the indications were that the
court might order the election on
the date asked for, the prohibition-
ists ended the discussion by with-
drawing their petition. This clearly
indicates that the prohibitionists are
afraid to submit the question to the
decision of the people. Their ob-
ject, ot course, is to disfranchise the
poor man. Unless they can do this
their cake is dough, and they know
it. Prohibitionists are tricky fel
lows and should be closely watched.
Undermuslins, Embroideries and White Goods
Will be worth your most careful consideration.
_ It has bebn no little task to bring together just those dainty and exclusiva patterna that ap-
peal so stroogly to the feminine teste and at the same time keep the price within the reach of the economical. Tuat to what extent sse have
been successful, we leave to your judgment. We are beginning the year aa it war# WITH THIS SAlE OF-WHITE, ttdw* intend that
it ahall lack homing on our part of being successful. Low prices count for nothing unless combined with quality and style; hence see prefer
the term “good values” which embodies all three essentials, price, style and quality.

Phil H. Lednok Dead.

Mr. Ledrick, In the seventies, was a
prominent _ business factor ot Denison,
being engaged most of the time in the
furniture ouslneas. He was chief of the
fire department and took a great deal of
interest in this direction.
Phil Ledrick waa mixed up in every
movement that pushed Denison to the
front in pioneer days. As a business
factor he was irrepressible, In fact,
nothing could tnove along without Phil
helping to grease the wheel. He was
generous to a fault, s whole-souled, no-
ble man. He is well known to the few
pioneers who are left. Thev will all re-

of Wiikesbsrre. In conjunction with C.
E. Callahan, who is the author of Fogg’s

Mr. Hart has just completed s dramatic
story of his native state, called “Pennsyl-
vania," the plot of which turns upon a
law peculiar to this and other mining
sections, under which a conveyance of
land passes title only to the surface, and
not to underlying ores unless the latter is
specifically mentioned. The characters
In Pennsylvania, are borrowed from real
life In the locality where the tale is laid,
near Wllkesbarre, and together with the
