Thumbnail for FIVE

Since the last of August there hasn't been a single day passed that we didn't receive new goods. Each
express and freight brings us loads of new merchandise.
Goods are already higher than last fall, but we bought a stock of $50,000 during the month of April
when cotton goods went down ten and fifteen cents per yard and wool-goods were from fifty to seventy
five cents lower than now. We can sell every dollar's worth of Merchandise that we have on hand to any
wholesale house at a good profit, but we appreciate the large amount of business given us this year and
we rather divide our profit with our customers.
We have over four hundred dresses in stock in ladies'
and Misses' sizes as large as you want for less than you
can buy the material-serge, messaline, tricotine, taffeta,
crepe de chine and georgette. Prices from $10.00 to
A large stock of coat suits on hand in serge, poplin,
panama, gabardine and broad cloth. Prices from S17.50
up to ?75.00.
We carry the most beautiful line of ladies', misses' and
children's coats at any price and kind you want.
No doubt but what you have already heard that shoes
went up from 35 cents to 45 cents on the dollar. We
have bought $15,000 worth of shoes, all of the very best
brands, at the old price, and we are willing to share our
profit with our customers.
PT OTflTNflT Hundreds of men's, boys' and children's suits have already arrived, at prices for less
VJJU 1 lilli Ul. than wholesale market prices to-day.
Several hundred of ladies', misses' and children's hats already on display. You can find in our millinery department as nice selection as you find
in any large millinery house in any large city, only for about half the price.
Remember, you can find here everything you need in the line of dry goods,, shoes and ladies' ready-to
wear for less than elsewhere.
Our store will be closed on Thursday and Friday, September 25 and 26 on account of holidays:

A Family Reunion and Bar
One of the most delightful social
occasions the writer has been priv
ileged to attend this summer was a
reunion of the descendants of the

There were three children of the
late Mr. Smith as follows: Mrs. W.

ton and Mr. E. Charlie Smith of Sa
A large table was built in the
yard beneath the beautiful oaks, and
around this theve were fifty or more
who gathered to one of the most
tempting and appetizing barbecue
dinners ever spread. The menu con
sisted of pork, kid, mutton, hash,
rice, bread, pickles, iced tea and cof-.
fee. In spite of the large number
present, (and some of these were
noted for their ravenous appetite)
there must have been enough food
for fifty more.
The following families were pres
ent: W. G. Ouzts and family; M. M.
Padgett and family; E. Charlie
Smith and family, of Saluda; H. S.
Smith and family, of Saluda; J. M.
