The Mutual Dry Goods Company is
out this week with an announcment to
the trade that our readers will do well

rant a strong movement of goods, and
the only way to bring this about is by
offerina extraordinary bargains. Tie
stock in The Mutual is not one of odds
and ends or job lots picked up for spec

regular standard goods selected with a
view to style, comfort and durability.

good offerings now presented by The

Some of our correspondents complain
)ecause we do not publish all they
write. If they just but knew the value
of advertising space, and would dis
criminate between advertising and
news. they would not have cause to
complain.' We do not object to adver
tising free of charge for benevolent
objects. schools, churches, etc., but
we must draw the line at moving pic
ture shows or other travelling institu

in a locality. We separate our news
columns from our advertising, the
former, we gladly publish free, the
latter we must get pay for, therefore
when a correspondent wants to adver

or a school, he must seek our paying

The carnival is a thing of the past.
The court house square has assumed its
quiet peacefulness and, young and old
have once again settled down to calcu
late the benefits derived from the hurly
burly of the past week.
. The Smith Carnival Company had a
clean lot of shows, and.the people con
nected with it were far 'above the aver
age traveling fun-makers. There was
no gambling of consequence: the cane
racks and the baseball throwing came
nearer to chance games, but these were
the most innocent species of gaming.
The man behind the rack of course
came out first best, and the man behind
the rings got his money's worth of fun.
The most popular place on the grounds
was Gran' Pa's candy booth, where the
purest and best of candies were manu
factured and sold at reasonable prices.
Gran' Pa's family consisted of his wife.
son and his wife; and grandchild and
they were indeed an interesting and
happy family of respectable people.
The jolly songs of gran' pa and his son
were much enjoyed and it had a whole
lot to do with intensifying the sweet
ness in the teeth of old and young.
The lunch counters were also popular
resorts and here could be seen almost
any time all classes from a bank presi
dent down to Henry Smith making in
dentures in his face with a Hamburger
sandwich. They were hot ones, clean,
well seasoned and well cooked. The
Ferris wheel and merry-go-round were
a mecca for the kids and some who
were kids before- the civil war. The
wild animal show was good, so were the
moving pictures. The minstrel, "the
colored aristocracy," afforded much
amusement. But the show of shows.
was "Zora's theatre." We have
seen many beautiful reproductions:
upn canvas, but the -living flowers in
ts show and the electrical mirror
work in turning a living woman into a
statue, was simply artistic and grand
and worth several times the price of
admission, even if the other features
had been cut out. Mr. Meredith and
his wife (Zora) we found to be people of
refinement, a class rarely ever in car

.ers who could read your past, present
and future, tell you how many times
you have been married, when you are
going to get married and who you are
to marry and many other mysterious
things that may never happen and
hardly will, but they tell them and get
their~ pay and it helps out the fun.

ness, and was standing in the entrance

-the many colored lights, the whirling
of the flying-jenny, the si7zincg of the
lunch counters, the loud and drawling
sounds of the spielers voices, the
barkers, the cane rack and baseball
artists, music playing, laughter of the
multitude, the fashionable dressed com
mingling with the ragged: white and
colored; buckra and niggers, all in one
conglomeration of fun-having mixup.
It was an interesting sight. The free
acts were splendid. Mat Gay makes a
most wonderful backward high dire.
It makes the onlooker hold the breath.
Then there is Melle Boni,who performs
on the trapeze and has some very intri

is a very difficult piece of work From
a financial standpoint we doubt if there
was much profit fQr the management,
as it takes a whola lot of nickles and
dimes to make up the enormous cost of
maintaining such an aggregation.
The tented city vanished in a single
night, and by daylight Sunday morning
there was nothing left on the square
but a lot of loose paper and some little
"niggers" hunting for what they might
find. The management we found to be
gentlemen, courteous and polite, ever
ready to aid in keeping order, and they
seemed anxious that nothing would oc
cur to hurt their reputation. They.
left Manning after midnight Sunday
night for Georgetown, where they are
showing this week.
