GOOD NEWS FOR THE PEOPLE.
Money is Saved When Best
The ITouso'of Dax Will & Bros.,
in McArthur have just received
their stock of Goods for tho' Ilolli
days. They, can offer some of iho
most decided'1 bargains that have
ever been offered . lit this market.
Their stock is full ano" complete-
selected with grent care. Tho re
duction in values that has taken
placo within the last few weeks in
all kinds of Dry Goods lias been
enormous; prices of everything
iu Foreign and Domestic Goods
have declined bo much that goods
are 61Hn' to-day ' at ; much . lower
prices than ever before id' 'tho his
tory of the Dry Goods trade; of
this decli.no thf.y havo fortunately
taken advantage of, and have pur
chased , largely at reduced prices.
Their largely increased sales for the
last few weeks convince them that
thopubllo appreciate' their endea
vors to furnish GOODS AT LOW
PKICES'Tliat ttTef ' ar'o'5lfering

laTofj,tlepwit-h a call will be con

lyfvlland complete, Tlio goods
are all new and fi-esh, and .the pri

than' tho goods have been sold with

j.'i'tiE McArthur Enquirer says it
is reported that Fkanuis Suauics, ol
Zaleslci, has .- absconded, leaving
$3,0(IQ of hnlJtediiess. It will bo
remembered that Mr. Siiadbs was
the first Sheriff of Vinton county,
Ye;, sir, Francis Shades has left
for unknown parts, leaving not only
$3,00D,but almost $5,000, of indebt
edness. Ho even borrowed several
hundred dollars of ttvo aged wid
ow women and added chat to his
pile before he departed. We know
of one farmer in this county who
endorsed a note for Shadks, and
is left to pay only $550; another,
who did the same, has to pay $532;
and soon. Suppose ho was "the
first Sheriff of Vinton county after
its organization,'! should those
whom ho has left almost penniless
look at that as the least..ioof of
his honcbtyV That will frol relieve
any of his creditor, and is nothing
in Shadks' favor, unless it might
be that during tho timo he was the
"first Sheriff," he was a Democrat,
and of course he could not be n dis
honest man. But ton years after
that timo lie must have lost his
honesty, or tho Democratic parly
became too honest for him, as it
was about this time that he joined
the party which, is endorsed by the
standard through "thick and thin,"
for the sole purpose of being "Sher
iff of Viutou county" a second time.
Ilo was elected. During tho war
ho held the office of Provost Mar
shal of Vinton county, which fi.ct,
no doubt, was overlooked by the
Standard As AmsTiDiiS wasa med
for his learning, and wisdom, and
Cicero for eloquence, then, accord
ing to the Standard editor's philo
sophical explanation of this extra
ordinary phenomena, Shades was
famed in such a great degree for
being "the first Sheriff of Vinton
county after its organization," that
absconding to parts unknown with
nearly $5,000 in money belonging
tQ honest ponple, will not in the
east discolor or injure his charac
ter in Vinton county.
