Fatal Railroad Wreck.
. A collision of two engines, resulting
m considerable wreckage, serious peiv
sonni injuries, and probably death, oc
curred Monday atteruoon about six
o clock on tho Southern depot vard, at
a point on the track between .1/cDuuio
and .Manning streets. Tho construc
tion or ditching engiue, in charge of
Joe Hughes, was returning from work
nt the recent wreck near Broadway
trestle. On the eugine aud tender
were probably twenty hands. Tho en

commodation freight, duo about this
timo from Walhalla, had arrived at tho
"luo Ridge yard and had cut off and
was bringing to tho Southern yard sev
eral cars and knew nothing of tho ap
proach of Hughes' engiuo. Ou the
other hand, Hughes knew tho schedule
of tho freight, and was endeavoring to
take a Biding, believing he had ample
time. A curve in tho road prevented
either engineer from seeing tho other
until within about 75 yards of each
other, and before tho engines could bo
reversed the craBh came. Most of the
hands saved themselves by jumping,
but H. W. Foster, white, aged 210 years,
was caught and so severely crushed that
there is but little hope of his recovery

ON ROCK BOTTOM,
THAT'S where we have been bending every energy for the past eight
years to get our business foundation set. Wo knew that a foundation set in
the sand was alike foolish and dangerous, and for this reason have labored in
cessantly for all that meant a rock-bottom basis. Our price3 havo been kept
on rock bottom, our credit system has been kept on rock bottom, and wo are
pleased to announce; to our friends that our business ia on a solid rock founda
tion. This wo attribute to the fact that wo give every customer sixteen ounces
of satisfaction to every pound, and throw in with every purchase a smile
apiece for every member of his family. It is due also to the infallibility of
the gilt-edged guarantee that accompanies every purchase, and the satisfaction
and confidence with which our customers feel that they can send even a child
to trade for them. We may have at some time sold shoddy stuff by mistake,
but we have always stood ready, and do so yet, to make satisfactory repara
tion for any unsatisfactory purchases from us. That's our mode of doing business.
