Memorial Day In Clxarlestoxnx.
On Saturday last our citizens made their
aunual tribute of flowers to the memory of
the heroic dead of the Confederate army re
posing in our midst. The congregation of
people from home and abroad was large,
and as we surveyed the multitude we noted
with sadness the absence of so many famil
iar faces of veteran soldiers who had, here
tofore, been accustomed once a year to meet
for the purpose of honoring the memory of
departed comrades. There is nothing truer
than the statement that “ We all do fade as
! a leaf.”
The procession was marshaled by Mr.
David Howell, assisted by Messrs. W. S
Merchant and Isaac H. Strider, and was
composed of the Charlestown Cornet Band,
the Jefferson Guards, the Citizens and In
dependent Fire Companies, and citizens and
visitors. As published in the programme
the procession first visited the graveyard
surrounding the M. E. Church, South, and
strewed with flowers the graves of Confeder
ates there; those of the P. E. churchyard
were next decorated, and then the column
moved on to Edge Hill Cemetery, where a
stand had been erected and preparations
made for the ceremonies. Rev. Dr. Hop
kins, President of Lee Memorial Associa
tion, called the assembly to order (a call
which was not as promptly or cordially res
ponded to as might have been desired or ex
pected ' and the exercises commenced with
Prayer, offered by Rev. Dr. Gardner, fol
lowed by beautiful ami appropriate music
by a choir organized for the occasion, under
the direction and leadership of Madame
Ruhl. The speaker invited for the day,
Capt. John J. Williams, was introduced by
; Col. R. P. Chew, a comrade in arms, with
graceful allusion to his patriotic devotion
, to the cause of the Confederacy and his
brave aud brilliant services in the late war.
Capt. Williams delivered with excellent ef
fect a carefully prepared address, elevated
in tone,—leading the thoughts of his hear
ers from sordid things” to the higher con
siderations of patriotism and duty, paying
eloquent tribute to the memory of the dead
and generously alluding to those who from
conviction of right fell fighting against us.
At the conclusion of Capt Williams’speech
the choir sang and Dr. Gardner pronounced
the Benediction. The Cornet Band then
gave some suitable strains and the Jefferson
Guards fired a salute of three rounds over
the soldiers’ graves, the choir then sang
“ Cover them over with beautiful flowers,”
and the crowd dispersed to strew the flowers
which had been brought in great abund
ance for the purpose.

The way to the heart is through the purse.
The easiest way to a man’s good graces is
through his pocketbook. Give a man a
“tip" on a good thing and he becomes your
friend. The many advocates of our tine,
ready-made clothing are the people who
have profited by our advice to buy our reli
able clothing. It has cemented them to us.
e have reached their hearts through their
pockets, and now they are paying us by
recommending us and our clothing. The'
stores that advertise impossibilities wonder
why we flourish and grow.
Our tree is nurtured by the fountain of
reliability. Every branch bears blossoms
of economy.
We profit by a very large business and
the buyer by saving hard-earned dollars.
Take no chances ou quality for ours are the
best—best in make and finish—beat because
they are reliable and durable—best in fit—
the fit is everything in clothing.
Take no chances on the price, for our’s
is the lowest—loweft because we buy strict
1 v fnr pn.ti_lmvpst hppiinsp U P htlV five times
us much clothing as any of our competitors
—lowest because we are square dealers.
Take no chances for your children's cloth
ing. We arc leaving nothing undone to
please the boys and children—we ought to
say the mothers. The prices too. are un
usual; for just sea what we will do. Give
your boy or child a new suit, tie and hat.

In large cities is a constant demand for good
Fitters at salaries ranging from $15 to $20 a
week. There are hundreds of young women
throughout the country who have the taste
and talent to fill such positions: all they want
is an opportunity, and a knowledge of the laws
that govern the art of dress-making. A want!
of this knowledge precludes the possibility of
reaching a high position as Cutter ami Fitter.
We will help you in this matter. We teach
you in detail the art of cutting. That our me- ,
