Are the Offerings we make in
JULY is usually the dullest of dull months, so we put on this Clearance Sale to keep us busy and to get rid of all
SPRING CLOTHING. So far this month our business has been very much like it is in the Fall of the year. The trade at
times was more than we could handle. And just think, in the dullest month of the year, too ! But the values offered have
never been equaled in this Tows, so why should not the business be immense 1

These semi-annual sales of ours (January and July) offer unheard of values in our regular
lines of Clothing. Newness is the life of the Clothing business, and we never allow Clothes
to tarry hete beyond the period of goodness. Not even in these sales, that clean up the stock
year, is there any Clothing that has reached the state of undevirability. They are swept away in the height of
their excellence. Banning water is always fresh ; likewise the moving stock. That is why that Clothes bought here ?j?
at all times and seasons reliable, reasonable and trustworthy.

LIGHTEST MINERAL WATER
And retair s its gases longer than other Water on the market.
THIS IS CLAIMING *
A GREAT DEAL.
But you can make the test yourself by taking a bottle of
WHITE STOKE CARBONATED WA?ER and opening it,
and at the lame time opining a bottle of any other, and you
will be surprised how much longer WHITE STONE LITHIA
WATER ytlii retain its gasaes than the other. Another test
you can make of the softness of this water, that it does not have
the sharp, burning sensation on the tongue or stomach when
drinking it that most carbonated waters have. If you will give
it a trial you v* III have none other.
The WHITE STONE LITHIA ALE will retain some of
its gasces after remaining open 48 hours, while most Ginger
Ale on the market will not retain theirs 48 seconds.
All we ask of you is to make a test of oar Water and Ale,
and we know ybu will be convinced of their superiority.
Will be open for guests on July 1st- It is the largest brick
hotel in South and North Carolina or Georgia, covers more than
