This is a serious question,
one at which some folks take
ofl'ensc, yet salesmen are under
tho necessity of asking it.
Some folks deal near home,
sottlo infrequently, never in
vestigate to sec whether they
pay moro than they should and
too often allow their accounts to
go long over due. If you don't
care what the fumily expenses
are it's a poor way to do if you
want to lcavo your children in
nilluent circumstances when
you nro gone. Now it is quite
an advantage to have nn open
account at a well-known house,
who can execute your order
promptly. Often persons say
they don't wantnu account and
will pay in a fow days. But
wo cannot keep memoranda of
charges; it isn't safe or good
business. The stock found in
ordinary stores is usually stale,
uninviting and inferior, while
tho stock in our e tore is turned
so frequently and so carefully
watched that it is at all times
fresh. Our stock in trade con
sists of tho luxuries and deli
cacies from every civilized na
tion. Send for our catalogue
and prices and noto tho variety
offered. Telephone us 240.

Tho Knw river hod overflowed its

IIli Vallh Wm Rewarded.
They wcro going to try a colored man
for stealing a quantity of raw cotton,
and wheu tho hour arrived I went up to
tho courthauso to heur the case. Tho
prisoner was a man about 40 years of
ago mid had elected to plead his own
case Tho prosecution proved that tho
bng of cotton was found in his cabin,
and tho property was fully identified as
belonging to tho owner of a compress.
Tho prisoner asked no questions, but
said ho wanted to make a statement and
rest his case "wid de Lawd." After
awhile he -was given an opportunity to
speak, and ho -said:
"I -war gwine by dat compress at
'leben o'clock at night, when a voice
called out to me: 'Hold on dar, Abra
ham Jones I Yo' was a pore man, an yo'
jest take 'long- dis bag ob cotton to buy
yo' -sum shoes fur cole weather. ' Den
de hag fell at wry feet, an I dun took it
"Did yo' recognise the voice?" asked
mq, saJo. Bas Z reckon it wm a
joigel who spoke."
"Then why .did yon hide the hag
when you got home?"
"Well, sah, jest as I gotfrew do gate
anodder voice tolo ma dat I'd hotter
hide do cotton.f ur a few days. " ,
"Did you'xecognize .that.ypioe?"
"No, sah.- But I dun reckon it was a
"And that's your defense, is it?"
"Yes, sah. I'xe willin to rest dis case
in do Lawd's hands. Do Lawd knows I
nebbcr stole dat cotton."
"Hadn't you bottor havo a lawyer?"
suggested tho judge.
"No, salt I'zo bin gwine to church
fur do lost fo'ty y'ars, an I'm rcstin dis
caso right in do hands ob do Lawd. "
"I shall havo to giwe you four months
in jail, Abraham."
"Huh I Whutfur?"
"Stealing that cotton."
The prisoner received his eentenco
without a word, seeming to havo ex
pected it, and was taken away. Two
weeks later I met him on the stroets of
Selma, 50 miles away, and said to him:
"Why, I thought you were in jail for
four mouths oter at Florence?"
"Yaos, I was," he replied.
"I remember that yon put your caso
in tho hands of the Lord. "
" Yaas, sah, an I cum out all right."
' 'But you got four months. "
"So I did, sah. but arter snrvin fnr
uino days do Lawd showed me how tn
dig outer jail, an yore I am, an dey
won't git mo ag'in. " M. Quad.
