peoplu to buy, but Mr. Hartman means
what he says. He desires to go out of
the dry goods trade and will 'quit that
branch of his business as soon as his pres
ent stock can be disposed of. Iu this
connection it may be well to state that
his stock is not old or shelf worn, but on
the contrary is fresh aud seasonable, nnd
ot the latest styles, consisting of such
goods as are usually to be found In a
first-class dry goods store. His stock ot
notions and gent' lurnlshlng goods Is
also large and select, and will be sold for
one-third less than tho same can ho pur
chased eNcwhere. All Mr. Hartman

prices to convince every one that he

most cordially in his doctrines und wants
the blblo retained In tho public schools.
