Feeling that the puMio deairea information
on thia eubirct, the Temperance C'ouamitlee
have decided to hold a aeriea of
continuing every night for weeka if the way
be open beginning Surday, February 14,
at 11 a.m., at the Firt Method at
Church, with a GOSPEL TEMPERANCE
SEKMON, by the Rev C. 11. Ml AD. an well
known and ao favorably received at Mont

prominent in thit work, and with gteat
ability utiitel an exceedingly cheerfal and
maaical attractiveness, which tlaaya bringa
overflowing houaea to bear hun.

o'clock p.m.. at the Young Men a C'nriat an
Aaaociation 1111. and at 7 :M p.m. at Avery
Chapel. On Monday night, at the First Bali
tint Church, tbe Rev. Mr. Mead will be aa
aiated by A. A. llnpkinaof ew York. Mr.
liopkina gave a ttirring addresi on night of
January 2tfth, giving a logical preaentation
of acta and figuret in favor of Prohibitum,
abounding with laughable anecdutea and il
luatrationa, lie ia a pleaaing apeaker, keen
and witty, and will oharm all who will hear
We will alao have Dr. JOHN A. BROOKS,
the gifted preacher and orator of Miaaouri.
Lecture will be ail free. If weather it
favorable, may get the Kxpoaition Building.
Announcement! (or meetinga after Monday
will be made later. We will have new muaie
book a, and hope to have a choir of lll voicoa.
Shall we not hope that Memphia will lollow
the example of Atlanta?
We all know that the manufacture and ne
of alcoholic dtinka ia the greateat evil of the
country; that the tratlic enalavet women,
wrecka manhood, injurea publio and private
tervice, peoplot priaona, breeda paupere and
criminal, and thereby impoaea enormoua
burdena of taxation; deatroya capital and
ruins lubor, and prevent many a man lrom
having a good home of hia own.
Knowing thin, ah ill we not all unite and
try to aoenre for tbe State of Tennecace the
benelita ariaing from PROHIBITION.

MENKEN AND (01PAXY.
Change r Flraa aad Other latere!
las Heme Abaal Thia Cuter
One of the important changes in the.
interral arrangements cf the business
arising from the retirement of Mr. J.
A. Menken is that of the purchasing
bureau in New York, which now is
and will continue io be under the per
sonal supervision cf Mr. J. 8. Menken.
It is needless to sty anything com
mendatory of J. 8. Menken in com
munity where he is so well known for
the laTt quarter of a century. Ilia
public spirit, his enthusiastic aid cf
every enterprise and lnstitufon tend
ing to the progress and advancement
of our city has endeared him to all.
As the head of the new firm, his ex
ample and energy will inspire there
and imbue theVhole with enthusiasm,
making success as ceitiin as the com
ing day. Ilia trained experience, cul
tivated taste and thorough knowledge
of the wants of this community give
him such advantiges ai it buyer
that nothing more could be desired.
To assist Mr. Menken in buying
there are three other resident buyers
in New York, one of whom visits Eu
rope periodically. - A large number go
from the Memphis House also who
are thoroughly trained in speciit'ties.
At present four of their Memphis
buyers are in New York the clothing
buyer, the millinery buyer, tbe notion
buyer and hosiery buyer. Others
wi I follow as the season advances.
Already the House has received all
Kuropcun purchases, such ns fine laces,
s?phyrs, embroideries, white good?, ta
ble damask, etc. They also exhibit at
present the line of newly-made cotton
dress goods, such as percales, Eatines
and ginghams. We learn that al
though Menken and Company have
ceased to enter for what is known as
long-winded wholeeale trade, the
House still keeps a large stock on the
upper (bora suitable fjr planters'
trade and commission merchants,
whom they are still anxious t) please
and to whom close prices and liberal
terms will be glveu. riince Mr. J. 8,
Menken became head of the firm,
every dollar's worth of giods bought
is paid for on tbe spot, making all the
discounts that reduce so largely the
cost of goods ; therefore, the House is
in a position to give the best value
and tbe beet terms. Success attend
them, is the sincere wish of every
Memphian who takes pride in hia city
and hopes for its growth.
