Mr. Editor. —In common with all
our citizens, I hail the rising Star of
Stephens City with pride and pleasure.
I hope it will date a new era in the
history and progress in our town.
One of the chief difficulties we labor
under here, and which retards the
growth and prosperity of the place, is
the want of better sidewalks on our
streets, and the need of a good walk
ing way to the Railroad Depot. Can
you not give the' aid of your vigorous
pen to these pressing and important
objects ? Now is the season to do such
work ; before the winter sets in. There i
is an abundant and most convenient
supply of black slate rock on and ad
joining the town cemetery lot, which
would make excellent sidewalks in the
town and to tho depot.
Let the attention of the citizens and
the town authorities be drawn and
ktptpraritUmtly to tho subject till the
good work is done.
Twelve reasons why our farmers
should buy Steele & Bros. KingPhos-]
pliate in preference to any other brand
in the market.
Ist. Because it is the be-t article in
the market for the price at which it is
2nd. Because it is manufactured
expressly for us, and there is not two
or three agent's profits upon it. you
thereby save from 5 to 8 dollars upon
each ton you buy.
3d. Because it produces as good or
better results upon wheat than other
brands sold at a much higher price.
4th. Because it stands almost with
out a rival as a Grass Producer, as
mauv of our best farmers will attest.
sth. Because it is dry and fine and
in good drilling condition, any not
found so will be cheerfully exchanged.
6th. Because you can save from 5 to
8 dollars on each ton you buy, and
get as good or better yield of wheat,
j and a good stand of grass.
7th. Because you will not have to
[sell your whole crop to pay your Fer
tilizer bill, ;i3 some of our farmers did
last week, (we admit last season was
a very severe one for fertilizers).
Bth. Because our leading farmers
use it, and recommend it as the cheap
est and best in the market.
9th. Because it has been sold for
three successive years and each season
grows more popular.
10th. Because it has a Slaughter
House Bono Stock base and contains
no dirt or sand to simply make bulk.
11th. Because it is manufactured by :
the well-known and reliable firm of;
Baugh & Sons, who have had 25 years :
of experience in the Fertilizer busi-1
ness. The analysis and proper me
chanical condition of every article on
their list is fully warranted. "Guar
ranteed Pure," means on their part,
a legal binding obligation which they
assume. Their estimated wealth is
12th. Because Mr. Thos. S. Sangs

fered to the public, and has the testi
mony of our best farmers in regard to
its great efficiency for wheat, grass and
corn, besides he would not solicit cus

Why Is It ?
We often hear the question asked,
"Why is it that G. F. Mayers succeeds
in distributing such a large amount of
merchandise among the people each
year?" We append the following as
our answer :
Ist. His purchases are made in a
large measure direct from manufac
turers or their agents, thus saving to
his customers the usual jobbers' profit.
2d. From his large and varied stock
(probably the heaviest carried by any
one establishment in the county), you
can always be sure of getting just
what you want, and not be compelled
to substitute something else.
3d. The prices at which he marks
lis goods are fully ten per cent, lower j
than other houses, depending for his !
income rather upon the quantity hau-!
died than a high rate of profit.
4th. The prices he ' allows for pro-1
duce in exchange for goods will al
ways be found to be a shade higher
than the current market rates.
4th. His modest but pointed adver
lent is always found in the col
of the Star, the statements cob
