An Open Letter to the
Fully Prepared for the Fall Trade in
In our long experience in merchandising we have never
procured goods in every line more satisfactory with a view to
low and suitable prices than during our recent visit North.
We allowed no opportunity looking to this most important
nd to pass us. These bargains we pledge ourselves to give
ur customers the full benelit of. feeling sure that we could
not give more practical shape to our sense of sympathy and
zratitude to our country friends. We know by experience
the special wants of our farmers. whose friendship we think we
have a peculiar right in claiming, inasmuch as our firm it was
which was the pioneer in this section to operate first with the
arious farmer Alliances, and that our dealings with these
gentlemen were most satisfactory in every particular and
ere appreciated is clearly evinced by the present enormous
increased volume of our business. We take much pride in
his and are determined by continued conscientious dealing,
nd the lowest possible prices to retain our hard-earned pop
.larity. Our store is frequently literally packed with cus
loiners during the busy season, and this fact can be verified
)V a visit, and certainly most emphatically sustains the cor
ectness of our statement.
We have not, of course, the space to lay before the pub
ic all our offering stock, but can only refer to a limited por
ion. Probably much that is omitted will be found even

Makers of Women's and Children's Shoes,
And we can furrish innumerable testimonials of ladies who are wearing the
Godman $1.50 shoes with as much comfort and service as some other makes
for which they had been paying $2 and more. If your little girl can kick
out her shoes in two or three months try a pair of the
Godman at $1
Aud we feel assured she will get five or six months kicking out of them.
Our prices on these commence at 50c in 4 to S.
For Men's Wear RIYNOLD'S SHOE
Has stood the test for several years and it is our intention to retain their
agency so long as they keep their goods up to their present standard df
merit. It sometimes happens that even in a shoe of this grade a pair may
be found deficient, but in every such case we satisfy the customer-by giving
a new pair of shoes or making due allowance.
This is a kind of hobby with us. We cannot resist the temptation of
buying, no matter what the quantity may be if the styles and prices are
right, and it was our good fortune to secure a line of about fifteen styles of
All Wool Cheviots and Cassimeres
That were made by a merchant tailoring establishment to sell from $12.60
to $15, but we bought them to sell
Frozm $7 to S8.0.
You have to see these goods to appreciate them. We also got in connection
with this line of goods a lot of light-weight
Kersey and Beaver Overcoats
That were manufactured to sell from $12.50 to $20. Our price
SIO to 512.3O.
These are merely a few of the attractions of our clothing stock. You can
find anything from a boy's knee pants suit at 50c to a man's suit at $20.
HAT]CfS FOR MEN - AD BOYS.
In this connection we will only add that we are as well prepared to sup
ply your wants as we have ever been, and that is saying a great deal, for we
feel that our hat department has done more towards advertising our bud

We are exclusive agents for the Milbourne mills of Philadelphia and it
would be an injustice to them to terminate this article without saying a
word about their flour.
We Have Sold 3.000 Barrels of their goods in the vast year and the best
evidence of their merit is that we have never had a package returned or complaint made.
We have arranged with the mill to deliver this flour in any part of the county in 5-bar
rel lots on a basis of Sumter car load rates.
