Not only has this concern a full and
complete stock of everything to tempt
the appetite, and to make the house
keeper happy, but they also carry many
articles of adornment for the home,
they keep things which bring eladnes
to the hearts of friends, and they are
up-to-date with all of their novelties.
It would be hard for us to describe
their stock of goods, their store is a
veritable emporium where everything
first class can be bought.
The best wiy to get an idea of what
the Manning Grocery has to offer is to
read the advertisement and then mak e
a personal inspection. The force in
their store is an intelligent body of
young men who will take a delight in
pointing out and showing the goods,
and directing attention to many things
whicn will aid the housekeeper in
making selections for a "big dining"
when the college boys and girls with
their friends come home for the holi
days. These people are hustling all of
the time, and if there is anything that
can be found in any market in this
country which will please their trade
they get it and take the chances of
selling. It is this spirit of energy,
together with the courteous attention,
-and the quick delivery which has given
them a reputation that is as valuable.

ready to be filled up for the nolidays,
and if there is anything which from
oversight they have not in stock all
you have to do is toe mention it and it
will be forthcoming as fast as the wires
and express can bring them. Did we
undertake to enumerate what can be
seen at the Manning Grocery it would
take up more space than they are using
in their advertisement, therefore, take
it from us that there is no establishment
anywhere better prepared to please thbe
trade as toe quantity, quality and price.
