There is a sweetness in a woman's smile at a dry goods store that her husband never sees. : This can be said of the millinery store as well. Some ice bills are still unsettled for this part of the season. We would kindly ask those of our patrons to whom this may apply-to look it up. Shoemaker Bros. The Wabash should follow the Lake Shore and put on a "theatre train." Many of our citizens would take in the theatrical attractions at Toledo if there was a way provided for them to get home the same night. A singular wedding took place in Wisconsin the other day. .

Simply because Toledo has no hors es to show. The Bee acknowledges this, but says to advertise a horse show would give the swell society people a chance to show their fine millinery. Then; by all means, let Toledo have a horse show. Since the earthquake which Rev. Ira R. Hicks, of St. Louis, predicted came on schedule time, interest in his remarkable predictions has increas ed.

The Jackets, tne capes, the dress goods ail share in the liber al reductions made to win you to the store now. - D. Wilson. Last week, hy mistake, an adver tisement or Messrs. Horn 5 jNorden was inserted, advertising a special sale of certain goods. Of course, a natural consequence, the rush for these goods continued longer tnan the firm had intended, and it was "to their loss. . Mistakes will happen in the best regulated families, but the instance is but another illustration of the efficacy of advertising. The rumor was rife last week that Bro. Palmer had sold the Signal to F. D. Pi-intis and W. H. Ker man. Upon our making inquiry of Bro. Palmer concerning the deal he said he knew nothing abiut it and that the parties who were- re ported to have made purchase had had no conversation with him look ing towards the purchase of the Sig nal. And there the rumor rests. On Monday Ed. Eger from Wause on, and a gentlemen from Toledo, came to Napoleon and took Al. Reiter from the county infirmary, promis ing to take good care of him and give him a good position. They left in the evening for Toledo. As both gentlemen are interested in the Vik ing bicvele of Toledo it is presumed that they will use Al. for advertising purposes during the next racing season. . We were talking with a drummer the other : day and among other questions we asked: "Well what do you think of Napoleon, any way?" JNapoleon isati ngnt," tne Knignt of the road replied.

We believe an ordinance prohibit ing our merchants from placing their goods on the sidewalks in front of their stores or hanging them on the awnings would not be distasteful to our citizens. Business men, use your show windows to a good advantage and then give the people room to get up to the windows and look in and you can get more people in front of your store. We have heard a few of our businessmen express themselves on the subject and all, to a man, say that they wish such an ordinance was in force. They claim they are driven into the sidewalk display business because others do it, and so on with all of them. . ; .Lames Kia mittens, lur tops, a good grade at Shoemaker Bros. 26, 28 and 36 inch Long Jackets, I Just New this Week ! $0.00 ofl9es The beautiful snow is with us.
