Spring and Summer An
I assert without fear of eon
tradietion that I have the larg
est stock of General MIerchan
dise kept by any Retail Store
in the State. and my Spring and
Sunnner stock is unusually large
this year. I am not selling be
low cost, -but wisling to coil
vert this immense stock into
money, I am determined to sell
at the lowest fizures. I invite
a careful inspection of mygoods,
but please remember that it is
impossible in so large an estab
lishinent to exliibit everythinig
to public view: so ask for what
Ton want. and ilV salesien will
take great pleasure in showing
the goods. A Cordial invita
tion is extended to all to visit
my mammoth establishmenit.
where they will find everythiig!
they require. and receive fair
dealing and polite attention.

Lanes on the North-eastern Railroad.
Ithas sprung up since the road was
built. It has about three hundred
inhabitants and is growing daily. It
has good church and school privileg

business. A large saw mill in the
place is running on full time, and an
other is going up ne:ir by. It is one
of the healthiest locations in the State.
Chills and fever are unknown to its
inhabitants. It is surrounded by as
good farming lands as the State af

as fine if not better than can be found

THANK YOU 1AM!
To the Ediior of' the Timtes: Alow
us through the medium of your paper
to express our hearty appreciation of
the interest manifested in behalf of
the clerks of 'Manning, by the fair
writer, "a lady," in last week's En!er
orise. We may puff, swelter and blow
behind the counter these long, hot,
ultry summer days, but now with
the knowledge that in the bosom of
o fair and lovely a maid, a sympa
thetic chord reverberates, endurance
becomes.a delightful privilege. The
lisinterestedness of the motive touch
s us deeply, and if the sweet mad
moiselle would but make the oppor
unity by offering herself for a prom
nade "in the moonbeams' misty
ght," we would either individually
r in a body, according to her pleas
re, doffing hats and on bended knee,
eclare in impassioned language, fit
ly for the ear of so gentle a cham
ion, the emotions of gratitude swell
ag our hearts. Dear lady, listen to
ur prayer, grant the simple boon!
