Biggest bargains in the
Horses, Mules and Wagons
We have received three carloads of Horses and
Mules within the past week, which in addition to
what we already had on hands gives us a large, com

We sell them fast and on short profits, with no
long feed bills added.
This last car being our eleventh carload shipped us

our sales outnumber all competitors. It is because
we give the people "Value for their money."

We were filed with feelings of
profoundest sor-ow yesterday
when we were apprised of the
death of Wrs. D. Y. Morgan. She
had been iH some time since, but
recently, however, her health
seemed to be somewhat improved.
And it was apparently probable
that she woult regain her wonted
health and strengtb. Yesterday,
while assisting her granddaughter
to prepare dinner, she took sick
suddenly and lived only a few
minutes thereafter. She was
about 6S years old. The funeral
services were held at the Presby
terian church, of which she was a
member, and were conducted by
Rev. J. E. Jones. The interment
was in the cemetery at the aboive
named church. Mrs. Morgan is
survived by her husband and the
following children: Mrs. Frank
Boulware, Mrs. S. L. Weir, Mrs.
John Gladden, and Mr. S. H. Mor
