I The Mecca to Which all Well Dressed People and Lovers of Style Flock.
h 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 10 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. v$vaeejjjvM

A disordered stomach may cause
no end of 'trouble. When the
6tomach fails to perform its
functions the bowels become de
ranged, the liver and kidneys con
gested, causing numerous diseases,
the most fatal of which are painless
and therefore the more to be dread
ed. The important thing is to re
store the stomach and liver to a
healthy condition, and for this
purpose no better preparation can
be used than Chamberlain's Stomach
