The literary department of the
Young Men's Christian Association

A well arranged programme consist

The question was discussed in an inter

A BUSINESS CHANGE.
Frank A. White Purchases the Com
plete Control of the Floyd & White
As will be seen in another column,
the firm of Floyd & White, lumber
dealers, is dissolved and the
business will hereafter be conduct
ed by Mr. "White, who has purchased
Mr. Floyd's interest.
During the years that Mr. W. has
been connected with the firm, first as
clerk, then as partner and now as pro
prietor, he has won scores of friends by
his manly, straight-forward attention
to business, and these will be glad to
note this latest upward step. Those
who do not already know him will find
the present owner of the lumber yard
a man whom it will do to tie to
A Tale of The Sea.
A local fisherman and general roust
about took it into his head to break the
tenth commandment the other day.
This led up to infringing on the eighth,
aud last night he borrowed for an in
definiuite period a good row-boat be
longing to Mr. Eugle living west of the
city and embarked on the gentle cur
rent of the majestic and mighty Smoky.
After 12 miles of sea-faring he became
weary and tied up the vessel. This
morning the owner missing his proper
ty set off down stream, rightly judging
that the robber would be too lazy to
row up the current, and at length found
the boat which he brought home. He
will get out a warrant and endeavor to
teach the ambitious sailor that the way
of the transgressor is hard.

We have a purpose in this sale and we propose io make it the most interesting of any sale ever held in Abilene. "We propose to put the knife in deeper. "We propose to
make greater cuts in prices. "We propose to give the people an opportunity to buy first-class goods at lower prices than they have ever had a chance to buy them in Abilene
before. "We shall not even stop at cost on some articles. We are going to move 1000fs of dollars worth of goods during this Great Removal Sale, and to do this we know that
the prices must be low enough to make it an object for the people to buy. Read our announcement below.

About the first of August we will remove from our present location to our
own building, at the corner of Broadway and Third Streets, now occupied by
Simon Rothschild. We own all the shelving, all the counters and all the
fixtures in the store room that we are now occupying. The shelves and
counters are filled with stacks and stacks of goods, and what are we going to
do with these immense piles of goods while we move our shelving and counters
into our new room. The shelving and counters will all have to be made over
and remodeled when we move them into our new room, and the question has
come to us what will we do with the 1000's of articles that our shelves are
loaded with when we come to remove our shelving. We have answered the
question in this way. We must get rid of the goods. We must close them
out. We are going to close them out. We are going to make prices that will
move the goods at onoe. Every article in the house will be sold at a reduction.
In no case will we ask the regular price on a single article in the house but
everything will be sold at a positive reduction. The people of this county
and city kuow when we advertise a thing we always carry it out to the letter.
You cannot afford to buy a dollars worth of Dry Goods, Boots, Shoes and Mil
linery Goods elsewhere during this Great Bemoval Sale. Bead carefully some
of the great cuts we have made and come at once and take advantage of the
great bargains, the like of which has never before been known in Abilene.
