It is known that on the 9th of next
month the editor of THE TIMzs will be in
Columbia attending the duties of his office,
and of course this will necessarily take
him away from the paper. We will try to
arrange to put the paper into competent
hands, but at the same time we know that
unless a man is constantly at the helm he
will find difficulties to get up a first class
paper. We therefore beg our friends
throughout the county to come to our aid,
at least as long as we are in Columbia en
deavoring to do something for t'2e people.
We want news letters from every section of
the county, and when too late to reach us
by mail and within reach of a telephone
we would appreciate a call of THE TIMEs
office and give us what you know. Who
ever we leave in charge of THE TIMas will
greatly appreciate this aid and so will thc
readers, and so will wve. WVe want a good
lot of snappy news items. Giive them to us.

Yes, it 's the same old story, we know how you feel-just don't
know what to buy for Xmas gifts. Now listen, we don't intend to
say much, but what we do say, goes. We have one of the largest
varieties of new and seasonable, also useful as well as ornamental,
stocks to select from that we have ever displayed. It makes no
difference who you may want the present for, we can please you.
All we ask is a look. Come in, make yourself at home;- if you
don't buy, you'll find just the same treatment as if you had. Space
will not permit us to mention all the different lines, so will try and
content ourselves with a few. Of course the children are first.
Well, I should say so; all kinds, at any old price.
See our centre tables of toys-a great big lot of all kinds-a
snap picked up by our New York representative, a line of samples
from one of the largest importers in New York. Prices on these are
way down. An early call will mean money in your pocket. Lots
of other truck for the children. Can't call them all. Just come
BOOKS :- BOOKS -:- BOOKS.
You know what our holiday line of books has been in the past; well,
just look at this year's line. All kinds, all prices. Publishers' prices
smashed to pieces by us.
See the books we offer at 12c. It's a wonder and no mistake.
Complete line of Chatterboxes. Wish we could tell you all we really
have in our book line, but space will not permit us.
Handkerchiefs for All.
We have the largest stock of Handkerchiefs ever displayed in these
parts. See our line Embroidered Handkerchiefs at 5c. Something like 50
styles to select from. That's pretty sweet, don't you think? Then we
have them at 10, 124, 15, 20, 25, 3.5, 40, 50, 75c and a little higher. Every line
the right stuff for the moner.
New and complete holiday line just opened. There is nothing else that
makes as nice and serviceable a present as a nice Umbrella. Just see the
line we have for both ladies and gentlemen. You'll not find their equal
elsewhere. We have marked them very close, just to make fast selling,
Neckwear and Mufflers always acceptable. We have them, too, All the
new kinds and colors.
Last, but not least,
Groceries for the Holidays.
We have a full and complete stock, at low down prices. Before you
buy your Groceries for your cakes, give us a call. We may save you a
penny or two.
If you can't come early, come late. Our stores will remain open every
night from the 18th for your conveniepce. -
