Great Bargains at the Variety
Messrs. Quarles & Timmerman

this reason Quarles & Timmerman
have reduced price all along the line
in order to move out their large
stock. They tell the Edgefield people
about their bargains in a full page
advertisemnt this week. Read what
they have to say, every word of it be
ing altogether dependable. This pop

holiday goods, giving our people an
unusual opportunity to supply their
holiday needs at much lower prices
than last year.
