Those who were iu thorough sym

performance at thu Academy Thurs?
day night, were not a little put out
to have the whole of tho final do

rustle of overcoats and tho general

tho door, Unfortunately this baa al?
most grown to bj a custom and many
have been mortified at tho discour

The recent full of Wei Hai-Wei

tu the hostilities in that quarter,
which have shown no Bign oi peace

bi?ht of, however, for tno truth is
tliut the world at large has too much
to cope with in the serious problem
of living to give more than a pass
in? glance to foreigu wars and
rumors of rebellion. The geueiai
discord aud unreBt pervading near
1 v all countries and people seem to
gain little quiet as time develops,
so that the thoughtful man grows
perhnps a little more ttioughtfui,
aud the timid man more downcast in
the pretence of Burrounding con
ditious, A word on this text may
not, therefore, be out of place.
The pessurnist can tiud many
things out of joint to gloat over, but

The weather prophet finds his theo

blizzards; the cotton grower aud to
baoco planter discover they have
pat their confidence in leaky vessels;
labor baa been more than usually
aggressive and even the sleepy cour

siniialions about "Muscovy drukee."
Tnru where you will, discord, and

The oilier side of tho subject pre

adds: "We think it probable that

that the .regiments, etc., that sur?

TELLING PRICES and SELLING PRICES
in every department, without considering LOSS, is
our maxim now. Wc are determined to force down
our Winter Stock to a minimum before making our
annual inventory, and have concluded to clean out
every Heavy Weight Garment in the house "AT A
PRICE." Mark you, we mean just what we say?AT
A PRICE?and here is a chance that rarely presents
itself, and never were such Hii>h Grade Clothing of?
fered on sale at such Extremely Low Prices.
Here are suits for Men, Youths' and Bovs; suits in
exquisitely style, suits of this season's make; suits made
up by our own experienced tailors (and not better
workmen than ours can be found) cut by our own
first-class cutters, ( inj no better nor more Perfect Fit?
ting Garment can be produced) from the very finest
Foreign and Domestic Cloths, Cassimeres, Worsteds,
Tricots, Diagonals, Cheviots, in fancy effects for young
men and soli i mixtures for older ones of quieter tastes.
Suits that no man nor bov need be ashamed to wear,
no matter what his rank or station; Suits that have
sold freely (when sizes were in better condition) at
$2.50, $5, $7.50 and some $10 more than we are now
charging for them are included in this GREAT
UNDER VALl1?E SALE cf Winter Weight. Wear?
ing Apparel, to make them move as quickly as possi?
ble, in order to reduce this enormous stock as rapidly
as the emergency demands.
These are Suits which are selling so fast, these are
Suits that catch men of sense who know how to save
money, these are Suits which are talked so much
about, and these are Suits no man who contemplates
purchas ng can afford to miss, and as we've sa',d before,
the sooner he comes the netter he ll fare, for we in?
tend to clean 'em out. without reserve, to avoid carry?
ing anything like a surplus stock over until next
season. THIS IS WHAT WE ARE NOW DOING.
Here are Overcoats of Our Own Superior Make,
and everybody knows, or could know, if they would
investigate the fact, that we manufacture as tine Over?
coats for young men and gentlemen, as can be seen
anywhere in the Union. Here are English Top Coats
in Meltons, Kerseys. Cheviots and manv other sub?
stantial weaves. Here are Sack Overcoats in Wors?
teds, Beavers. Tricots and Chinchillas, in manv shades
and colors, with Silk Sleeves, together with Cassimere,
Serge, Italian. Satin and Silk Trimmings. Here are
Storm Coats and New Markets of the Wry Best
Fabrics that money can procure. Here they are and
here they go, at prices which must clean them out,
without reserve, before the close 01 the season. THIS
IS WHAT WE ARE NOW DOING.

are frequent. No dull times experienced here. Can't Bfl'nrd it.

volume of business that enable* ns to sell

If you are selling more than you can make,
If times are too good to keep up with.
You might consider the question of stopping your ad?

When people are hard to please,
When only the "littest" can survive,
When times arc what they are to-day.
