STOHY OF SUCCESS.
An Enterprise that is
SOME CAUSES FOR IT.
Live ami up-to-date Slot hods uro At
tractive to Uio People?A Liberal
Policy? Everything Neu and Fresh -
Daily Increasing Business.
The remarkable success achieved by
Tin- Fair since opening In Laui-ens is
evidence that ear people appreciate
live and up-to-date methods of doing
business. Since the doors of this con
cern were thrown open only a few
months ago there has been a stream of
eager customers, who have not only ex
pressed in words their gratillcation that
l.aureus has such a store as Tho Fall')
but have bought liberally of the unus
ual bargains olTered. They realize
that their monev has suddenly doubled
in value ami that fifty cents will buy as
much at The Fair as they have boon
getting for one dollar. This, coupled
with the fact thai the goods aro guar
anteed, makes the popularity of this
The character of the stock carried
by The Fair bus stamped itself Indeli
bly on the minds of all within their
reach who like fresh, clean, desirable
merchandise at the lowest possible
prices. Nobody buys goods as cheat)
as The Fair and nobody Issatlslied with
so .small a profit. Nobody's credit is as
good as the cash down, and nobody
knows so well as The Fair that in order
to build up a permanent and suceossful
business thoy must make it to the ad
vantage of every buyer to trade at The
Fair, and absolut ly to undersell all
competition. The, are doing these
things and arc doing the business.
CRISP WITH NEWNESS,
Hvory piece of goods at The Fair is
crisp with newness. Tho stock is just
from the North whore it was bought
for cash. 'I'here arc no damaged shop
worn good* at The Fair. They can sell
you goods lower than other people, be
cause they get the cash every time anil
cash is a great power in business. They
do not, therefore charge you enough to
make up for what they lose on others
because they lose nothing, neither do
they charge you enough to make up for
what they lose by carrying hard ac
counts a long time, because they have
no accounts of any kind, selling always
THE PAIR'S POLICY.
The F.-ir is abundantly aware thai
the way to make a mercuntl'o business
a success is to have satisfied customer.-,
who have received such treatment and
such good.-, as will not only bring them
back t<> the store but will also lead them
to direct others to The Fair. They re
gard their advertisements as contracts
with their customers and stand ready
to prove every statement made In them
Their policy is: One man's money is as
good as another's. They make no dis
tinctions whatever. All goods are
marked in plain figures so that any
body can see what the price is. The
price is always the same to everybody
and a little child can buy goods at The
Fair as cheap as tlu1 most experienced
MONEY HACK, IF YOU WANT IT.
One of the most attractive features
of the many that distinguish this store
is the guarantee that goes with every
sale, that goods may be exchanged or
will be taken back and money refunded
If the customer Is not satisfied with
the purchase. There is no haggling
about it either. All you have to do is
to take or send the goods back undam
aged and you get your money.
The Fair's trade Is increasing every
day. and the people take them their
cash because they know that they get
big values and because they believe
that when they have cash to spend it
is to their interest to spend it at a store
that does a strictly cash bu.sine.--s. Then
they know that they are not helping to
pay anybody else's bills. If you want
anything in dry goods, notions, shoes,
clothing, hats or gents' furnishing
goods by all means go to The Fair.
For a few days longer The Fair will
continue their great cost sale and it
will pay you to visit their .-.tore in that
time. AK staple dry goods, llani.els,
jeans, shoes and clothing at first cost.

In Memory of a Devoted Husband ami
Father. Alexander F. Simpson.
Whereas (Jod in his infinite wisdom
and power, has seen tit to take from us
on the 2nd day of Oet. 1900, our dear
father, we, knowing that ?'The Lord
ohastoneth whom He loventh," humbly
submit ourselves to Him that doeth all
things well, though home seems dark,
mi dark, not one ray of light can we see
-for tho angel of death has entered our
midst and snatched from us a dear
loved one. Our sky is hung with black
and somber curtains: our visions are
o'eroast with the gloom of sorrow, and
every EOlind thai strikes our ear has in
it a cadence of despair. Without the
presence of the one on whom wo have
lavished our affections, the world in
deed seems empty and cheerless, and
In our hearts there is a dreary, dismal,
aching void. Although it seems hard,
Oh! so hard, we say "I'hy holy will be
done." The only consolation wo have
is that our treasure is in Heaven, and
we know if we live US he did that we
Call go to him and bo linked together
in an unbroken chain, where there will
he no more parting.
Ho bore his afflictions with all Chris
tian fortitude possible without mur
muring. His last hours were beyond
any doubt his happiest.
'hrough all pain at limes he'd smile,
A smile of Heavenly birth:
And when the angels called him home
He smiled farewell to earth.
Doubtless ho bad some premonition
of the impending sorrow that awaited
his stricken family, when standing
around his bed-side weeping lie would
say Ina cheerfel tone: "cheer up my
dear children, it is all right, the Lord's
will must be done."
Our hearts are broken, crushed,never,
no never, to bo bound up as before, but
we have tho assurance that. God is too
wise to err and too good to he unkind.
It is a sad, sad fact that we will no more
see the face of our lovely pure minded
father on earth Now he sloops quietly
In the grave-yard near tho church
where ho was a consistent; member for
more than thirty years. In early boy
hood he consecrated his life to the Re
deemer's service. h. his home and
around his lire-side a noble example
he was of Christian industry, forbear
ance and meekness. Wo know the God
he delighted to honor on earth has
transplanted thisswoot llowcr to a more
congenial clime whore no rude blast
will sweep over his pure spirit, but
where ho will exist in an eternity of
happlnesss, and may not we who dur
ing his gentle life wore cherished with
his love arid sweetness, hope that his
immortal spirit will hover around us to
guide our weary foot-steeps in the
paths of righteousness and we ask the
prayers of all of Cod's people to help
us bear this sore dispensation.
Oh! father, thy gentle voice is hushod,
Thy warm, true heart is still:
And on thy pale and peaceful faeo,
Is resting death's cold chill.
Thy hands are 'duspod upon thy breast,
We have klsse i thy marble brow,
And in our aching hearts we know
We have no father now.
And darling lather, 'tis hard to break
tho tendor cord
When lovo and affection have bound
'Tis hard, Oh! so hard to speak tho
'Wo must forever part."
Dearest loved one, we have laid time
In the peaceful grave's embrace,
But darling father, thy memory will
Till wo see thy heavenly faeo.
