I didn't come to Newberry over six years ago to
boom business for one or two years just to get myself
established. I am here to boom business just as long as
the people appreciate My Low Caslh Prices, and as long
as I can conscientiously advertise that Mimnaugh sells it
for less. Wc have built our reputation, by handling Good.
Reliable and Honest Made Shoes, we don't buy bankrupt
or job lots, we must know how the shoes are made and
what material used, then we stand behind it and guarantee
every pair to be just as we recommend them.
One of my customers came in last week and said:
"I want a pair shoes for my wife, I was passing a store a
short time since and Mr.- called me in and said that he
wanted to sell me my shoes, that he would sell me shoes
cheaper than I could buy them from anybody else. He
showed me some very attractive looking shoes, and I
bought a pair. They were not worth half I paid for them,
I got badly cheated, I have come back to you, for a pair to
day. I have always gotten the worth of my money here."
That is the way we have built up our immence
shoe business, by giving the people the worth .of
their money. It matters not how low a price you
get elsewhere we can always do better for you.

Georgia, "and if even any other

I think he will take the nomination,

of the next house, Judge Bartlette

San Francisco, July 14.-The of1
cors of the 2d Oregon regiment,
while very guarded in their state

the American troops at Manila at
the outbreak of hostilities between
the United States and the Filipinos,
was very critical.
Tho capture of a letter sent from
in,iido our lines at Manila to an
emisery of Agninaldo, is probably
all that saved our army fron a ter
rible disaster and possible annihila

Otis, who fcvnd in it a plan or plot
to open the gates of Manila, sack

The United States troops were
under arms all night to meet the
expected attemp)t but the enemy had

out, which was the burning of a por
