Information is gleaned that one
of the prominent business Arms
of Winnlield is about to close out
his stock of goods between the
12th ot 'January and the early
part of February. The Famous,
J. Israisky, proprietor of one of
the popular business houses of
Winofield, proposes to seek other
fields and will sell his varied
stock of go4ods regardless of cost.
The Sentinel will regret the de
parture of the proprietor as he
has been a firm believer in the use
of printer's ink, and which he has
liberally used. The public are
reminded that if they wish for
bargains they had better embrace
this opportunity to secure some
rare purchases as speedily a
possible. The present stock of
The Famous is not only varied,
but is fresh and new having been
porchased recently and embraces
all the latest styles of all manner
of household articles, clothing,
shoes and all goods in that line.
Go and enquire and be coaviseed
and satisfy pressing needs.
