discomfort, and having tried various
remedies, including mineral waters,
without relief, I saw by an advertise

been relieved of this distressing com

Ayer's Sareapariila. I then decided to
make a trial of this medicine, and took
It regularly for eight months, and am
pleased to state that it has effected a
complete cure. I have since had no re

We are now perfecting the preliminaries
for starting our September Limited on

It will make rapid work and quick re
turns to the advantage ot our large corf
stituency of buyers. A vestibule train,
saving time and its equivalent; money, to
all, with that safety in buying, that is felt
in traveling on the Chicago Limited.
The constant arrival of new
Fall Carpets, Furniture and Curtains,
makes the pressure for space in our sales
rooms bo heavy that something must
"break." We have decided it must be last
season's prices on stacks of goods whose
room is preferable to their company.- We
ring out the old and ring in the new. The
goods are standard. Ourreputation rests on
none better. Fashion's changeable whim is
their only demerit. The admired new of
to-day will be the slighted old next year.
They are then the peers of the present when
future use and true worth are considered,
NOTE THE DAY,

Be ready at the start, and reap the ad
vantage of the first comers. Here are a few
examples of the speed of our Limited. Do
they suggest bargains? Scores equally as
