The Mecca to Which all Well Dressed People and Lovers of Style Flock.
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. v &&KXKX&&&uX&HxJtxMxx

General Crop Conditions.
The unfavorable conditions
of cold and damp weather
which prevailed during the
first half of the week gieaily
delayed farm work, and
checked the proper growth
ol vegetation. Very little
corn was planted and the
early plantings which are
beginning to come up are
doing no good as to growth;
much of the recently planted
areas will have to be replant
ed on account of seed rotting.
This -is true also of cotton;
the planting of this crop has
been pushed rapidly forward
during the last few days.
Wheat, in many places, is
beginning: to show the effect
of the wet, cold weather, and
is rusting badly, and looking
yellow, besides, many fields
are infested. with the liy and
the chinch bug. In the
western counties strawberries
are being marketed. Irish
potatoes are coming up well,
but some were injured by the
frosts of the 23d and 24th,
which also injured tomato
plants, and other tender
vegetation, and in some
places fruit. Peaches are re
ported scarce, but the pros
pect for apples is fair in most
sections. I he week closes
fair and cool.
For Those Who Live on Farms.
Dr. Bergin, Pana, Ills., writes:
'I have used BalUrd's Snow Lini
ment; always recommend it to my
friends, as I am confident there is
no better made. It is a daudy for
burns." Those who live on farms
are especially liable to many acci
dental cuts, burns, and bruises,
which heal rapidly when Ballard's
Snow Iiinimsnt is applied. It
should always be kept in the house
for cases of emergency. 25c. 50c,
$1.00 at Cox & Co's.
