Desirable merchandise is scarce, and prices are daily advancing. You will profit by supplying
your needs now. You will gain nothing by waiting, in fact, the information we have is that all dry
goods will advance very much higher than they are now. Cotton, the one product of which 75 per
cent, of the goods used by the average consumers, is selling very high, and we believe it will go
higher, and of course cotton goods will advance. We, with many years of experience and close ob
servers of the market conditions, had fore-sight enough to go in the market early, when prices were
much lower and purchased our fall stock. The result is, we are now prepared for Fall Business with
a very large stock of merchandise. When this supply is exhausted we have no assurance as to what
the prices will be- Our customers that make their purchases early will obtain goods at practically old
prices. We strongly advise early buying, whether you buy of us or not.

An Interesting Letter From Mi
The following is an interest^
letter which Mr. and Mrs. W.
Lott recently received from Re
and Mrs. John Lake, written A
gust 29 from Canton, China:
Your nice, long, newsy letters
two in one-have been read by
with delight more than once, ar
yet there is so much sadness in tl
home letters and newspapers on a
count of the mention of the deat
of oar friends that there is, (
course, the sombre side of it to(
Yours was the first news that v<
had of the death of Mrs. Fann
Tompkins, and what a list of ot
other friends, Linie Allen, D
Prescott, Capt. Gunter, Mrs. Cooi
er, Miss Burton, Mr. Bussey an
Mary Clyde. Of course, we ha
heard of the passing away of sevei
al of these, and yet it was so kin
of you to mention them. Sometime
people fail to do this, and what
shock to their relatives if we shoul
wrke to them without having hear
of their loss. At one time we trie
to write letters of sympathy in al
such cases, but to do so would tak<
so much of our time and strengti
from the work you sent us to di
that we have despaired of beim
able to keep up this custom, an<
then in case we did not hear of th
death of this or that one we loved
and in case our letters were los
. on the long journey, we should cer
tainly give offense by seeming t<
overlook some. But won't yoi
please express our sympathy, as yoi
have opportunity, to the relative:
of those you mention? The truth is
so many letters we have written tc
friends in the homeland hav<
brought no answer tnat it almos
discourages us at times with lettei
writing. To write and feel that thc
letters were not received and to feel
that our friends believe that wc
have forgotton them or neglected
them, is one of the really trying
things in a foreign missionarysi
Well, no doubt you have seen in
the newspapers about the third
revolution we h ^e had in South
China since the + .anchur Dynasty
was overthrown-the growing pains
of the new republic-and we too
have remained on our mission com
pound through all three of them.
When Yuan Shi-Kai died, having
faild to make himself emperor we
mig! t have had peace but for fact
that he had appointed so many men
to high office who, like him, cared
nothing for the liberties of the peo
ple. If politics can be so bad in a
land of churches, what must be the
conditions out here at a time like
this? They are horrible-indescrib
able. The late president appointed
as military governor of this prov
ince-state-a man who was thor
oughly hated by its probably 25
million people. Certainly the two
million or so people of this city
, bate him as only heathen can hate.
Well, since the new and better
president has takeu office this mili
tary governor refuses to give up his
office to his successor, and until
three or four days the new governor
in trying to take his office has been
besieging the city with rifles, raa
I chine guns and cannon, for more
than three weeks, night and day.
we heard the roar of battle, for the
Chinese are now armed with modern
equipment and they are learning
how to use it. The only members
of the mission of the compound, we
two, have watched from our veran
da the bursting of shrapnel shells.
All of the hospitals in Canton are
crowded with the wounded and a
state of anarchy exists. Fortunately
for us, the attack centered chiefly
in the westend of the city, while
our compound is in the east end, so
that our chief danger, humanly
speaking, has been and still is from
the large bands of well armed rob
bers that night after night are killing
and looting, sometimes in the city
itself, and even worse, in the de
fenseless villages. Our compound is
especially exposed and for many
nights a lone ex-Citadel cadet (an
ex-member of the Edgefield Rifles)
contented himself with two or three
hours sleep a night and did sentinel
duty for a compound of twenty
acres, where were the temporarily
deserted buildings (this is summer
vacation time, and frightfully hot)
of the theological seminary, the
girls' and boys' academies, the wo
men's training school, etc. The
twenty-odd girls in the school for
the blind next door to us could not
leave, they have no homes to which
to go, so think of the responsibility.
But God has taken care of us thus
far, and we are not afraid. We
know that you too and the other
friends at home are praying for us
as we are for you. Remember us
most kindly to Dr. and Mrs. Jones
and all the members of the church
and community, especially give our
love to your own Elizabeth and
Faithfully your friends,
John and Carrie Bostick Lake.

Mr. Lott's Exhibit.
"Mr. P. N. Lott, the efficient coun

to make an extensive exhibit at the
county fair in the agricultural build
ing, showing the different depart
ments of his work, and also show

through the methods which he ad
vocates. This will be a splendid
feature of the fair, one whose agri
cultural value can not really be esti

an opportunity of reaching people
in remote parts of the county., among
whom he has been unable to labor
or visit satisfactorily.

good that kidney and bladder troub

lasting. I always recommend them
