I never had so pretty and complete an
assortment of lamps of all kinds, as now,
nor at prices so low.
This is a little early for lamps, but I
believe there . are plenty of people who
would ijny-Tiow if the price made it an
Thursday and Saturday, July 28th and
30th. we will sell any lamp in the store,
one fifth off the regular price. Remem
ber the days, please, for the reduction
will be made only on these days.
I have purposely set the time ahead so
that those who want lamps may call, look
the line over, get prices, and see hst
they are eetting when one fifth is taken
off. It will brine a good central draft
iiickel lamp down to 68 cents, for in
stance. This not an effort to "reduce stock for
new Kooda",4wt to "get moTe" on the
new goods ibsAselves, for we have just
opened this line.

the meeting of the committee appointed
to make the arrangements for the ob
servance of Labor day. It was well
attended and the reports of progress
made were very gratifying. The com
mittee reported having secured the
Harper and Robinson tract on the hill
back of Huber's garden, which is one of
the most delightful picnic grounds in the
vicinity and readily accessible by street
cars, the committee not taking tbe Co
lumbian grounds, because of lack of
shade. J. W. Cavanaugh was appointed
to endeavor to make arrangements with
one or more well known sweakers who
are prominent in labor movements to be
present, and a committee was appointed
on pan.de who will call on our citizens
and ask ibem to co operate in making a
grand industrial parade that will eclipse
any former attempt in that line.
T. A. Pender, J. W. Cavanaugh and
Harry Boslock were selected to make
comprehensive arrangements in regard to
reduced fare on the different railroads,
and it is thought that a rate sufficiently
low to bring people here from all sec
