OCT I?, IHOl i
The Court of Common Plea? con- j
vcncd in the city last Monday, hi?
Honor Judge Townsend presiding. All
the other Court otlicials were in their
places. Several jurors were absent,
several 'vere excused and a new venire
had to ho drawn. There is a very
heavy docket, and there ia talk of un !
rx tra term to enable thc bar to clear
thc docket. A number of cases have
been tried hut, norn; of them un; of any
interest to tho public. Yesterday tho
question of the constitutionality of the
present jury law, passed at thc session
of the Legislature in 1890, was raised,
and his Honor, like several of tho other
Circuit Judges in the State, decided
that it was unconstitutional. There
fore, only those cases are being tried
where the lawyers on both sides agree
that tho point will not hu raised, but it
is possible that the Court will be in,
session nearly all tho week hearing !
equity cases. A number of cases have j
been continued and the jurors will
probably bo discharged to-day.

him to reply t<i my art ?clo on the Sol

alright, HO taras lam concerned, for
any ono to reply to anything I may say
or write, but it is not right for him to
publish anything that is not true by
saying "that it was reported." If a
"Farmer's Son" knows anything ubout
thc report that was circulated several
years ago in some newspapers quoting
me as saying flint the Poor House was

The great secret of,a merchant's success
is in buy inn bis goods right. Sullivan
Hardware C.). have a regular Wbolesalo
Department, and since opening same
their trade bas Increased in volume very
rapidly. In this age of sharp competi
tion, m ereli au ts are looking more closely
after prices, and they are finding iht?t
they can buy at wholesale Irom this houso
cheaper than by ?ending their orders
-way froul homo ana paying freights, j
The reason for this Is that the Sullivan
Hardware Co. are always wideawake and
make contracts ahead with the manufac
turer direct; besides they employ a resi
dent buyer in New York, with branch
olflces in other cities, who keep in touch
with all large factories, whioh gi vea this
house the advantage of knowing just
where their spot cann orders will obtain
the lowest prices. It is much more satis
factory for merchants to buy in a home
market when they can save money bv do
ing so, and that ls what Sullivan Hard
ware Co. propose to do for their trade.
Anything in the Hardware line can ba
bonght from them as low, often mu oh
lower, than the same class of goods are
offered by other wholesale houses. If
you have'not investigated this fact they
stand ready to prove lt if yon will give
them your orders.
