ALL SHOULD CO-OPERATE.
OF THE CREDIT SYSTEM.
In view of tho credit policy heretofore pursued with my customers
many of whom I have indulged for years the month of November
has come and gone, bringing with it some satisfaction in trade, to lit;
sure, but a great deal more disappointment in collections.
I admit that the past year has been a hard one on us nil, and on
this account I have accommodated many of my customers with time
until crops could be gathered. This time has eomo and almost gone,
and although 1 have made a special effort to collect what is due me,
and at considerable time and expense as well as annoyance, winter is
almost upon us and many obligations remain unsettled.
I have given the matter careful thought, and have decided that
there is but one satisfactory solution of the credit system, and that is
to continue my business on a strictly cash basis.
In coming to this conclusion I have been influenced by motives
which can but result to tho mutual benefit of my many cus'tomers as
well as myself and this is the object to bo desired in my dealings
with the people amottjg; whom I have been burn and reared.
(Successful business men all agree that the cash system cuts down
the profits of the merchant. This naturally results from a system of
"Quick Sales and Small Profits." To be more explicit, the merchant
who pays eashfor his goods can sell them cheaper than the merchant
who buys on time. He gets the benefit of all discounts for cash pay
ments, thus enabling him to reduce the credit prices all down the line.
This can only result satisfactorily to the customer who pal ionizes a
strictly cash house.
Every cent counts these days, don't it? I can help you save money
if you will let me. See here! I offer the following reductions to be
gin with :
CALICOES, a!l brands, 5 cents per yard.
BROWN SHEETING, 5 to 6 cents.
DRESS GINGHAMS, 5 to 7 cents.
HAMILTON ALPACAS, 8 1-3 cents.
HENRIETTAS, 36 inches wide, 25 cents.
HENRIETTAS, 32 inches wide, 20 cents.
Women's SPLIT POKA SHOES, 60 cents per pair.
Misses'; SPLIT POKA SHOES, 55 cents per pair.
Child's SPLIT POKA SHOES, 35 to 50 cents per pair.
Women's GLOVE GRAIN Button Shoes, from 75 cents to $1.50.
I can make it to your interest to price my shoes before buying.
I have some excellent bargains in clothing, and have inaugurated a big
cut in the prices of hats and caps. Get my prices before buying.

The following circular letter has
been prepared by the managers of
the Tennessee Centennial Exposi
Davidson County by an unprecedented
majority litis voted the upp-i irintioi of
&I().(!1)( asked tor ly the Tennessee Cen
tennial Imposition Company. Thispives
those in charge a fund or basis upon
which to commence the active and ear
nest work oi the ei. lerprise. It was right
and proper, as the exposition was to be
held in Nashville, to make Davidson
speak out first and show her faith by her
works. Tin's has been dune. The coun
ty court by an almost unanitno'.u vote,
79 to 55, agreed to submit the proposition
to the people. The people in the late
election have spoken in no ueertain
terms. It required .1 tluee-fourths vote,
but the people did better than that by
voting almost .vdidly, tln: city of Nash
ville voting for the proposition by 19 to 1.
lint this is not a local affair. The
whole St at is interested, or should be.
The wounds of the late p litical battle
will soon be healed, and in this enter
prise all have a comnu 'ti heritage, a com
mon cause, where they can unite, and
work together. Other counties should
begin the work--subscribe as much as
th"y can, a"d make the centennial an
exposition to be proud of, one to remem
ber, one that all can visit with prido and
The press of the state has shown itself
to be i:i hearty sympathy with the move
ment. That great artery tlnongh which
the thought and action, the life-blood of
n nation flows, has, with wonderful una
nimity, espoused the cause. It is hoped,
that each county will appoint 'onnnittees
to see that its resources and advantages
are properly represented.
The exposition will be the means of
bringing thousands of people and mil
lions of dollars into the State Hearty
co-operations, however, is needed to
make it the grand success it should be,
and every county, every community must
join in the work. Make it the theme of
conversation for the home and the pub
lic thomuhfate. Jiegin now to think
of suggestions and pleasing attractions.
A subscription from each county is
asked not mly for the reason that the
exposition will need and judiciously use
thbsuni, but to show to the State, to the
country and the world that each county
is represented; that each county feels a
ju.-t pride and interest in the success of
the great m vement; that each county
