before, I can show you more
Black and Colored Dress Goods
than any two stores in Newberry.
Don't buy your dress until you
see our line.
This is why we are doing the
business: No more high prices.
Mimnaugh is the man who killed
the high prices in millinery. Re
member this is the first fall with
us in the millinery business. We
have no old style to show, but all
the latest creations in French and
Americn Millinery. When you
want ap up-to-date hat or bonnet
come to Mimnaugh's. I will save
you 25 to 50 per cent on your
In this department we pride
ourselves in keeping a stock suit
ed to the wants of the people.
We positively do not keep any
thing trashy in this line. As in
all other departments we have
marked this line lower than ever
before. We are the only house in
Newberry that carries the Drew
Selby & Co.'s ladies fine shoes.
This is the strongest line of shoes
in the United States. The prices
range from $1.98, $2.50 and
$3.00. The most complete stock
of shoes in Newberry. Don't fail
to see our line before buying

BIG CAPE AND JACKET DEAL.
I have just received Twenty
five Hundred Dollars worth of
Capes and Jackets direct from a
manufacturer. The lot was large
but they needed money. I can
sell. you a Cape or Jacket for what
the other merchants pay for them.
The man who makes a dollar on
