Gr?md Fall Opening of Millinery,
Dross Goods, Notions, etc., Sopteniber
29th was a big success. Hundreds of
ladies visited their store and expressed
themselves as boing delighted with
tho beautiful Display. The hats shown
in their Millinery Department
would do credit to auy city ? tho
sty'os all being good and a great
variety of shapes. One of the newest
shown was tho Di Vernon in bhio, made
of panne velvet, trimming, bird of
Paradise. The most boautlful and the
handsomest hat that attracted our at
tention was in black, also qulto a pro.
fusion of brown and Crocquo De Koche
being one of the most popular combina
tions this season. Their store was not
only filled with delighted customers,
but there never haB been seen such
a stock in Laurcne.

Probably tho most attractive display
of Mlllluory, Dress Goods, Silks and
Wraps that was ever witnossed in Lau
ren s was shown by O. B. Simmons &
Co. at their Opening Fall Display last
week. Their large store room, from
their olcgaut show windows to the rear
end, was an array of ladies wear so at
tractively arranged that the hundreds
of ladies who went to see it were
completely charmed and 01 all hands
could be heard the most extravagant
exclamation i in praise of the showing
this old and reliable firm made at their
Fall Show, and from what we saw, we
feel that the Show was not all, for
their courteous sales force was very
bu<y, cutt'ng oil" goods and boxing bats
and packages which could be seen go
ing out. A noticeablo thing was
that nn unusually largo number of la
dies from the county attended tho Dis
play and numbers of buggies and car
riages wore seen during tho day load
ing with bundles of merchandise,
bought from this firm.
Mrs. Nelson seemed to have collected
the m.ist exquisite creations in millin
ery, dre?s goods and accessories from
the cream of the Northern markols
and placed them on exhibition. Tho
daintiest, mos*, styish productions in
milhnary, In all the leading shades
and shepes, called forth unqualified
praise and tl.o gratfiying sales stamped
the approval of tho admiring and ap
p. eolative public. The beautiful dis
play in the silk and woolen dress goods
departments is worthy of a more lengthy
descript'on. Tho exhibition of their
stylish f ill wraps is worthy of special
