EVERYBODY KNOWS IT. IT IS long since that everybody has known that J. H. RIDDLE sells the very best quality of Family and Fancy Groceries at the very lowest bottom pricee, and too. that he does it without hesitancy or quibbling. They know that he marks his goods at a fair price and that he expects no more. They know that others cannot undersell him and stay in business. CLAY PEAS. At J. H. RIDDLE'S you can find a limited supply of Clay Peas, and .he would suggest to parties wanting them to lay in n.irwilwr I fbn nnnonn tuoii ouyyij uww| iv/i juwji iu tuo ooaouu there is always a scarcity which affects the price.

He can surely auote close figures and will supply you in large or small quantities on short notice. Plastering Hair, Lime, Cement and Shingles. Heretofore J. H. RIDDLE has kept only Cement, Lime and Shingles; but by constant demand he has been forced to add to his building material a large quantity PLASTERING HAIR, which in the future you can expect to always find at his place, and when contractors or large buyers need any of these articles,they may expect special prices. Fruit Jars and Harrows. Possibly Fruit Jars and Cotton Harrows should not be put in the same classification: but since the rains have come you will need the harrows, and when the fruit comes you will need the Jars, and J. H. RIDDLE has them at bottom prices. T. W. SPECK. MY CREED. I Don't Believe That Everything That Glitters Is Gold. I DON'T believe in representing my wares to be tripple-plated when it was bought for single plcte. I don't believe in calling tripple plate jewelry "filled goods." I don't believe in calling "filled goods" solid gold. Ana I don't believe in taking advantage of the confidence a customer reposes in me, nor do I believe that a business built upon avarice, or misrepresentation can be put upon a lasting foundation. I don't believe in falsifying facts or Alloying brass with cheek to sell gold. I do believe that it is my duty as a business man to correctly represent my goods, and deal justly with my fellowmen, and it is to this that I attribute my growing business. When you want Eye Glasses or Spectacles. remember tbat I have a full line of the best goods, and will sell you for *1 what traveling peddlers will ask you $2. Fitted to gold frames the same glass will cost you more. When you want an Engagement Ring, remember that I can furnish it. If you want auykind of Jewelry see me. When you want a good Watch in either a gold or silver case, I can and will furnish it as cheap a$ anybody. If you have a watch that needs repairing, bring it to me. I do honest work and guarantee it.
