Joseph Burgess, a tenant on the farm
of J. A. Welborn, of our town, who
lives about 7 miles above Williamaton,
in the country, met with a serious loss
last Friday night in the total destrn.o

mules, a milch cow and a lot of rodder
and hay. The buildinsr whon first
discovered about nine o'clock Friday
night was so far enveloped in llames
that nothing could be saved, and the
only theory is that it was the work of
an incendiary, as no fire had been about
the building. The loss falls quite heavy
upon Mr. Burgess, who is a hard work

the barn itself, which is a large, roomy
one with six stalls, is no small loss upou

OH ROCK BOTTOM.
THAT'S where we have been bending every energy ;for the past eight
years to get our business foundation set. We 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 prices have been kept
on rock bottom, our credit system has been kept on rock bottom, and we are
pleased to announce to our friends that our business is on a solid rock founda
tion. This we attribute to the fact that we 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 purchaaesfrom us. That's our mode of doing business.
