The Mecca to Which all Well Dressed People and Lovers of Style Mock.
While other stores resemble some deserted cemetery, with monuments of high prices looming up before their idle employes, who seem to act as sextons to watch over the remains
of dead trade and toll the funeral knell to exhorbitant profits, we are on the jump, as busy as bees, waiting upon big crowds, who have "come to the biggest and most aggressive estab
lishment in the South. At the sound of the bugle, spreading forth among the people news of the biggest bargains ever heard of this side of Mason and Dixon's line, we will, commenc
ing Saturday, March 28th, at JO o'clock a.m., continuing 90 days, inaugurate one of the greatest merchandising events of its kind ever held in the South.. A more complete stock nev
er adorned a Southern store or attracted a fastidious customer. It seems that the weavers and dyers exhausted nature's resources in the production of the rich and elegant materials that
bank our shelves and counters this season. The stock was bought in person, direct from the factory of Ferguson, McKinnie & Co., of St. Louis, with which I am connected. This
famous firm has branch offices in New York and Paris. My goods are the brightest and best from their looms, and were purchased at inside figures. No stock in any city can sur
pass it none in any country town can near equal it. The rich and handsome colors are a feast of beauty to the eye, the modest price attractive to the pocket. - Our limited space pre
vents anything approaching a mention of each article, but we will call attention to a few lines, which will give some idea of the vast volume of varieties to be seen in our mammoth
three-story brick building.vvvv5v

-Dr. W. J. Cox, of Fulton,

first of the week. The Doctor was
mixing among his numerous friends
Monday, all of whom were glad to
see him. He relates a regular "bull
in a china shop" story that recent'
ly came under his personal observa
tion. It must be remembered that
the enterprising citizens of Fulton
buy and sell cattle, as well as other
things. Last Saturday, a dealer, in
attempting to herd a drove, failed
to round them up properly and a
wild, long hortied steer broke ranks,
ran down the main street of the
city, pursued by a horsemau, right
into the drug store of Dr. Cox.
The frightened , animal stopped
about half way the store, surveyed
himself in a large mirror, and re
tired, without damage. x Several
were in the store at the time, and
it is said they were more excited
than the steer.

mer met an obstruction and tie
contents of one barrel entered his
