GOOD EARTH ROADS.
The problem of how to secure goo

The vast agricultural empire of tI
great west and northwest is a counti

It has heretofore been assumed tha
this thing was an Impossibility, and s
all lines of road improvement hav
been based upon the theory that tlh
earth must be covered with some sut,

treating the earth itself that it shoul

There are just three things which are

cent patronage ever enjoyed by any house in Greenville. Our record
shows an increase of nearly 40 per cent. over any previous year that v- Vt l
business. This record shows that the Bee Hive does undersell in honest merchandise
or else our increase in sales would not have been so large.
The One Way to Thank Our Patrons Is to Improve on
the Unmatchable Values We Have Given them thus tar
We have spent months preparing for the fall trade and. we are now ready with one of
t the most complete stocks to be found in the upper part of the state, Every article
sold under this roof is guaranteed to be worth every cent you paid for it, or your
money back after a fair trial. This guarantee, in connection with our always lower
prices, makes the Bee Hive the people's trading center.
DO NOT BUY YOUR FALL BILL BEFORE GIVING US A LOOK.
We will make it interesting for the other fellow if we don't sell you the bill. Remen
