The London's Great Scoop Sale began this morning at 8
a. m. and will last a short time only as such bargains are
bound to be gobbled up.
The old saying that:
"THE PROOF OF THE PUDDING IS THE EATING THEREOF,"
can be readily exemplified not only by the unheard of low prices, but to further prove
that this is a bona fide sale we below mention plainly the manufacturer name from
whom this great stock was purchased, viz; Goldsmith, Klaw & Co., OO-l Ol West
Third street Cincinnati, Ohio.
Cash is King! Pluck is Courage! Push is Enterprise!
With the above combination the London won the day and carried off the great prize at 55c
on the dollar. You know what 55c on the dollar means; it means goods retailed at 20 per
cent less than manufacturers' cost, or from 45 to 60 per cent less than regular wholesale

it is tne general .verdict that
when pneumonia seizes upon a
person in the decline of life it is
almost always fatal. The
marked increase in the number
of deaths from this malady of
late years has made its attacks
greatly dreaded. Reid's Ger
man Cough and Kidney Care
is a specific for it, and will cure
the worst case if taken freely.
John F. Gove is a respected citi
zen of Peoria, livine in Cedar
rartc t the age of 76 years
he was taken with a severe cold,
noming seemea to do aim any
good and his cold steadi v
deepened until his cough could
be heard all over the block. It
had the hoarse rattle so omi
nous of evil, and there was the
tightness across the chest and
the UBual symptoms of pneumonia-
The doctors came, but
shook their heads, saying that
at his age the case was well
nlgn Hopeless. . Id could not
tie down a moment; a hoarse
and tremendous rough set in at
once wnenever ne attempted to
do so. In this emergency a
friend suggested Reid's German
uongh and Kidney Cure. Mr.
Wove tried it. His condition
was so far gone that he could
not eat and so he farily lived
upon this medicine. As it is
nutricious in it itself and con
tains no poison, he was able to
do tins, not only without de-
leterous effect, but with posi
tive benefit. The result was
that in a week he began to
mend, and he is now hale and
hearty. He had pleurisy for
some twee years, but on his
recovery from his cough, he
found that his pleurisy had left
him to. Considering Mr. Gove's
great age, this is one of the
most remarkable cures that
have been effected by Ceid'tt
German Couh and Kidney
