Ton may have his con fidence. He may owe yon a bill and feel under great obligations to you, but the first question he will ask when shown goods: "What is it worth?" and "can't you sell it cheaper?" We have a treatment, if taken in time, which will give immediate relief. It's our Rock Bottom Knock Out Prices-One Price to all. This is the age of progression, and only a question of time until the old-time merchants will be trampled under the cruel hoofs of King Credit. Just tell Smith if he says anything that you are going to give Tlb-e 2"V2-"b a chance this season- If he gets huffy it will show that his friendship extends only to your sensitive nerve. That being the case there won't be much loss. We are going to push business for all it's worth. We have the goods and prices to do it with. Yours for One Price, THE - I .-.II.

Accidents to raUrod. employes are growing less frequent every year, thanks to the general adoption of automatic brakes and couplers. In 1895 the American railroads killed 2,700 employes and injured 32,000 more. In 1896 they killed but 1,823 and injured but 23,422. This year the figures will be still more reas suring it is believed, because the railroads are very generally adopt ing the satety device. Indeed.they are adopting the automatic brakes with so much speed that the Amer ican railway brakeman will soon be a rare individual. He has been re duce in number froni aboqt a half a million already, according to one writer on this subject. The use of the automatic brakes is so satis factory that in a short time prac tically all trains will be equipped with them, and a few meek car at tendants and freight handlers and switch throwers will represent the million lively young men who form erly held the post of brakeman. Journal. John Q. Ivicey, a crackerjack young attorney of Norfolk, has re? ceived passports from Secretary John Sherman and will start soon for Central America to look over the country with a view to raising- coffee.
