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
