general merchandise store during the

the verdict of a Jury n-ndenil In the cir

societi.-s of tlie Army of the Cumberland
and of the Army of the Tennessee, the
lira nd Army of the Hcpuhlic, and the As

to lie so great that It will tax tlie capacity
of the railroads 'centering liere and the

Veterans who fought against each other
arc crowding into the city to take equal
part under national enactment lnthedeiii
cat Ion of fields which their prowess made
memorable as a national military park.

Twenty-Two Miles in length, Inrludlns
the Fields or I'ht Days' Hut tic.
The park which is to he dcdlcatiil is of
unusual dimensions. It extends, with Its
approaches, from Sherman Heights in
Tenness.i', six miles north of Chattanooga,
to Olass Mill in ;cor;:in, a distance of
twenty-two miles. The broad boulevard
bet ween these two point is owmil in fii
simple by tlie government as part of tho
park. This rent ml drive runs for eight
io ili-s nloiiT Urugg's !it:e of battle on the
crest of Missionary Ride. It pusses along
the fronts of Sherman's army, Thomas'
Army of the Cumlierland, and the army
under Hooker. It overlooks all the baliie
lielils about Chattanooga, including Look
out Mountain, end runs for twelve miles
through the center of the lighting ground
of the three days' buttle of Chickmuugua.
If the territory over which jurisdiction
has U-eu conceded to the I'nited States

Tlie park and its approaches therefore

days of general liattle hetweeu great
armies, and three days of minor engage
ment, namely: Chickamausra. Orchard
Knob, Lookout Mountain and Missionary

The plan of the park is to restore the fields
as Dearly as possible ts their condition at
the time of the lmttie, to close nil new
roads and reopen and improve those used
in the kittles and over which the armies
moved to und from the fields.
The disign is to mark with historical ac

This is a great point to consider. It is not simply the prettiest
shades you want to select. You ought to be sure that they are
fast colors, and won't wash out or fade. We all know how mor
tifying it is to have a suit of clothes which has a different color
where the sun has struck it from the parts that are necessarily in
the shade. You can avoid this trouble by purchasing from us.
We satisfy ourselves that the colors and shades are unfadable. and
we keep a very large selection of them in the best materials that
are now imported from England and France.
