Owing to the. rush lor Heavy Winter Vest
ures we've neglected Shirt news. We order
so frequently and they go so rapidly that we
havn't thought to sreak of them since "way
long last summer." There are without doubt
many who are as jet unacquainted with their
GooJnefs in materials are of most import
ance, and this we look to first; next to be
considered is chape and manner ot making,
and last but not least by any means, price.
Beginning with our M)c Unlaundried
Shirts we describe briefly as follows:
Quality of Miulin used, Hill's "Semper
idem;" quality of I. men in IloFom, Cuds and
Neck-Band, what is known as "twenty
hundred," mtaninjj twenty hundred threads
to the square inch; style of cut, trench Yoke,
open in back with 1 inch facing, and sleeves
fated the same.
Of this one particular quality of Shirt we
lm e thus far sold probably 500 dozen, and
ttill the demand at times is greater than the
supply, as shown by broken sizes. We have
at present all sizes lro"n 14 to 17 Inch.
Iu Laundried goods we handle the "F. k
. Peerless" in numbers 8, 7, C, 5, and like
their name are matchless garments in point
of material, make and price. Did you ever
notice this fact, that tn o-thirds ot the ready
made Shirts are cut the wrong way of the
cloth to insure lasting qualities?
Erery lady knows that there's a right and
wrong way to cut muslin into garments, and
that if the latter is practiced in order to save
cloth and thereby cheapen the garment, it's
a losing game in the end.
It's therefore our orders to the manufact
urers of these Peerless Shirts to spare no cloth
in the manufacture of Shirs for our retail
houses, and the result baj been large and in
creasing tales. Every Shirt from this house
is Guaranteed Tailor-Made and Warranted to
Fit equally as well as any article of ClothiDg
Our great variety of styles in Collars and
Cuffs are also manufactured by the same firm
and are known as the Kiverton, Polo, Pixley,
Plm-nix, Kenwood, Amherst, Bend D'or,
Bernhardt, Edison, Paris, Harvard, Cricket
Climax, Montfort, Windham and Globe; each
and every style guaranteed to be -1-ply and
Tweiity Hundred Linen, with the one excep
tion, the Climax Cuff, is but 3-ply. Our prices
for these Collars in every instance is $1.50
ir dozen, two for 25o, or 13c for a single
Collar. The immense qualities handled by
our various branchc reasons for the price be
iue so extremely low.
In addition to the several lLcs of F. k V.
Sniits we carry a full line of the Cabinet'
Custom Made SLirte, a brand of higher grade
and price, and of which we have the exclusive
sale in this city. They are cut in the most
improved shape, having patent curved fronts,
and are ot the materials known to Shirt
Makers. Once tried, we dare say you would
not be satisfied w it'n any other.
In Working Shirts our stock is too large
We'll simply say with regard to prices that
we begin at 25c for a very poor one, going
from poor to good, to better, to best, and
every price named may at all times be relied
upon as being the very lowest at which like
qualities can be afforded.
Underwear seems to range at a half now;
meaning we take it, halt the price asked.
That would be easy encngh, but we don't
choose to do business in that way. What we
ask we take, and no less or more.
Just think of it once, we sell in the regular
way, All Wool Scarlet Underwear at G5c.
Now then, is it natural to suppose that any
little concern in this city can, or will, sell
garments of equal quality for half 30c each?
This is altogether "too thin to wash." Until
you have seen our Underwear Stock and
learned our prices you can't know the half.

report on the New Orleans Exhibition. About
exhibitions that lady knows much, having
been an exhibitor as an inventor. It is not
often that women entsr upon that path, and
it is seldom when they do that they achieve
to so marked a success as has Miss McMnllin.
Tbe feature of her invention is a new electric
battery, so far utilized in "the form of a brush,
which has had a marvelous effect in assuag
ing pain, or in dissipating it by the action ot
a continuous current of electricity applied to
any part congested. Bespeaking the good
offices of our friends in tbe United States for
our 'Special Correspondent,' we leave Miss
McMullin to speak for herself as regards her in
vention." The writerof this paragraph had the
pleasure ol meeting Mif s McMullin, at the ho re
of her iister, Mrs. Colonel Muter, at 35 St.
George's Square, London, in 1882, and he
can assure her of a cordial welcome in Amer

come here. We have no doubt her "Electric

therefore, of being directly brought

Sometimes it is led into a drain; at
others, into a thick growth of under

Many farmers neglect to plant shade
and ornamental trees, shrubs, and
large flowering plants because it costs
too much to purchase them of nursery
men and to pay the cost of transport
ing them by express. Manv neglect to
raise bush fruits, grapes, strawberries,
asparagus, and pie-plant for tho same
reason. They do not appear to bo
aware of tho fact that they can raiso
the stocks for planting on their own
places at a trifling expense and with
very little trouble. They think that
great knowledge and skill are required
to properly conduct a nursery. Such
indeed 13 tho case with a nurscrv of
fruit trees. The proper management of
a nursery requires an extensive knowl
edge of all the leading varieties of ap
pies, pears, peaches, cherries, plunn,
quinces, as well as of several other
fruits. It also requires a knowledge, of
the science and art of the various svs-
tcm of budding and grafting. Fruit
trees need almost constant attention
while in tho nur.ery. They cannot be
neglected during any month of tho
growing sex-on. Fersons wishing to
set out an orchard cannot ordinarily do
better than to procure their trees of a
reliablo nurseryman. They will gener
ally find it to their advantage to give
their patronage to a nurseryman in
their vicinity. It will bo well to con

The seeds of many of our most valua
ble trees are easily obtained, and they
germinate as readily as grains of corn.
The trees may need some protection
from the sun during the first year of
their growth, but this protection is
easily and cheaply afforded. Seedling
trees of ono or two year's growth are
cheaply obtained of nurserymen, and
can bo transported long distances at
small cost. Timber, shade, and orna
mental trees of the sizo most persons
desire to set out arc, however, difficult
to transport. They arc generally tall
and take up too much room in the cars.
These Uees-are-itr-oousinnt domzaiLin

wanted for ornamenting farms, plant
ing in cemeteries, setting out on the
sides of roads, and for starting groves
and forests. Farmers scud to nurser
ies for trees when they wish to set out
an orchard, but thoy do not ordinarih
send orders for other than fruit trees.
They will purchase timber, shade, anil
ornamental trees, however, if they are

bee them. The person raising them
will be almost certain to find a market
for them in his own neighborhood. If

Grapevines, currant, gooseberry.rasp
berry, and blackberry bushes and
strawberry plants can be disposed of in
largo quantities in almost any section
of the west. People who sec the fruit
are anxious to raise it for themselves.
These vines and bu-hes are very easily
propagated. The cuttings can be ol
taiued for a nominal price, and with
suitable care fhvy will be largo enough
to set out in permanent locations in
two years. Raising strawberry plants
is a very simplo operation. A hundred
plants of any variety will yield a large
increase in a single season. When sot
out with a view of raising plants for
sale they should be placed three or four
feet apart each way, in very rich soil,
so as to encourage the growth of run
ners. If the blossoms are taken off the
growth of tho plants will be increased.
The ground should be kept free from
weeds and grass and the vines allowed
to spread in all directions. Fifty plants
may, by judicious management, be pro
duced from one in the course of a sin
gle season. Asparagus and pie plant
would generally be rai-cil by farmers if
they could obtain tho plants in the vi
cinity where they live. The seed can
be obtained in large or small quantities
from any dealer at a comparatively
small price. It germinates as readily
as corn, and the plants arc remarkably
hardy. Xo selection is needed in the
case of the asparagus plants. They
only require rich soil tliat is free from
weeds and grass in order to mako a
rapid growth. Tho plants will be of
the proper size for setting in permanent
beds when they are two years old. It
is not desirable to retain all the plants
raised from pie-plant seed. Some of
them will produce small leaves, and
should be thrown away. A considera
ble revenue can bo "derived from a
nursery that will occupy but c small
amount of land, and will" require but a
small expenditure of time and monev.
CHEAP STORAGE OF ICE.
It is not necessary to construct a
building to be specially devoted to the
storage of ice. It can bo kept in a
part of a building used for tho protec
tion of wood amfcoal, or tho housing
of cattle and .sheep. Ice docs not al
sorb bad odors, and the sawdust and
other materials that are placed about it
to prevent the passage of heat will keep
all foul substances from coming in con
tact with it. One corner of an open or
closed building, about eleven feet
square, can be easily partitioned oil' for
holding ice. The walls of Ithc building
will furnish two sides of the compart
ment for ice, and the other two may be
formed of scantlings and common
boards. This space will hold a eako of
ice eight feet in extent and a filling of
sawdust eighteen inches in thickness.
Cakes of ice two feet square are most
convenient to handle. They should be
cut so that their edges are straight, in
order that they may pack close togeth
er. They should not come in contact
with the earth, but rest on a support
covered a foot thick with straw, chaff,
or sawdust. The top must be covered
with sawdust or other similar material.

Mr. Calhoun s Iiove of 'Possum.

Calhoun, who always hail bi-possum
and his sweet potatoes when he could
get them. Ho used to say to me: 4Xbw,
Steve, you get me a nice fat 'possum,
cook it'the day after it is killed, par
boil it, then put it in a hot oven with
boiled yam potatoes laid around it in
the oven and then let it slowly brown.
If you can get a coon, Steve, you make
plenty of coon gravy, very brown and
pour it over the 'possum, and don't
you fail to have the 'possum "well fla
vored with pepper, salt and sage.'
Well, sir, you just ought to see Mr.
Calhoun sit down to a dish of 'possum
with coon gravy. He wasn't a big
man, but he was mighty thin.and there
was plenty of room about his vest. He
used to say that it reminded him of old
Sotith Carolina to eat 'possum, and
that's the reason he liked it so well.
Many a time he's told me about going
out 'possum hunting at night with col
ored boys and dogs and an ax, treeing
