fl What Is Doing in Denison Mer cantile Circles. Results Plainly Visible rri*Denfson To day. All Our Advertisers Are Busy. Fads of the Ad Men. T)ie Balle-Brodersen Co. is meeting with great mccess for its formal opening week. The big store lookt its best. The display windows are works of art and would do credit to State street in Chica go. The stocks in the various depart raents are displayed to the best advantage and hundreds of people are thronging the store throughout tbe entire day. On the second floor, Mrs. John Silleio Denison's favorite cateress, is superintend ing the refreshments which consist of ex cellent coffee and fine ham sandwiches. We are informed that mote than five hun dred people were served on Tuesday after noon. The firm is to be congratulated on the popular success they are making of their grand opening. J. E Balle is the ad writer for this firm and everlastingly keeping at it is one of his mottoes. He watches results too and knows what mediums pay and what do not. We would call attention to the large advertisement of The Boys on page eight of this issue. The Boys are preparing for their removal to their new quarters, and instead of having a great removal sale all in a bunch, they have decided on the policy of ofieriug great bargains, first in one line and then in another and thus re ducing their stock to a minimum without interfering with their regular trade. Mr. Gebert, the "ad" man of the firm, be lieves in quoting prices that will demand attention and brinp trade. It will pay good hou-ewives to keep an eye on their announcements this fall. Geo. Menagh & Co.'s advertisement takes a Dew form this week because they wish to show a large cut of their harness. They have already transfered their hard ware stock to the old Sievers building and are ready for business in that line as well as in the harness business. Mr David Menagh is the "ad" writer for Menagh and Co. and h' complains that half a page is not big enough to tell all the bar gains he has for the people each week. L)avc threatens to buy a page of the RE VIEW for the next year so that he can tell 'the people all about it. Well, that's the Menagh way and it's a winner. Mr. J. C. Piratb. who has beeu manag ing the Bamford Sale for the Commercial Adjusting Co., has left the city tempora •rarily but the sale goes merrily on. Mr. "Mrath told us before leaving that even he, as experienced as he was in such sales, j. was surprised at the success ot the Bam -ford sa'e. The stock is being rapidly re duced «nd Mr. Bamford believes that he will be able to close it all out this fall. It is to be regretted that so good a merchant as Mr. Bamford should be forced by ill faealta to give up the fine business be has established, but now that he has decided to make the step he is anxious to do it quickly henc^ the bargains. Fred Soehl, who has charge of the sale of the Hub stock, is sho ving himself to be an expert ''ad" man. His announcements are catchy and yet they tell their message in a straightforward way. It is wonder ful what results Mr. Soehl is accomplish ing single-banded in hia little store on Broadway. Have you noticed the clever signature design Used by Huettman Bros, in their announcements. It was especially en graved for them and they have a similar one for use iu the German papers. The boys have a fine stock and intend to keep pounding away until everyone knows it. They are using some attractive clothing cuts in their ads. Bartcher and Schneckloth intend tbat everyone shall know that tbey nre ready for business with a constant ly increasing stock of new goods. At present they are busy unpacking and setting up new furniture, but Ben has 'some great ideas in his head for push ing busiuesB. The cut fl wer depart ment is one of them. Next year he expects to grow his own flowers and to make his own desig" for floral pieces. The firm has decided not to handle wall paper and is closing out what is left of the Pom stock very cheaply. Kelly says not to use borders on his ads and set tbe first line black, black, black, so every one can see it. He be lieves in heart to heart talks with his customers, or perhaps it would be bet ter to call them sole to soul talks. Mr. Kemming says he has the finest stock he has ever been able to offer Denison people and from now till Christmas he proposes telling people about it. Charley does not believe iu crowding his ads b^t in telling the people a few plain facts each week and letting the goods do the rest. -Vr-. f»y --i w, ~»7 r-jfCCv 1 W •T- Perhaps the most unique ad in this issue is that of the L3inborn Drng Co. Three hundred and thirty-nino dollars is a mighty big payment to be made for one brand of cigars by retail store for two months trade. No wonder the concern wants people to know about it. The fac simile of the cbecf was engraved especially for the REVIEW advertisement. THE REVIEW man called upon C. Salomon this week and had difficulty in getting through the big stock of furai ture his sales rooms contain. Mr Salo mon said he was not ready to advertise ^. WITH THE AD MEN. SIMPLEX TYPE SETTING MACHINE. because his stock was not all in. We wonder where he is going to put it It was suggested that he make room by advert'sing and he is going to try that plan next week. Haugh and Brummer are also plan ning an extensive advertising campaign. During ihe summer ihey decided to let the other fellows have the closing sales and just to keep their name in the papers to let the people know thev were stayers. Now their fall goods are in and they are going to let folks know all about it. There area host of advertisers in tbe REVIEW and the advertisements make good reading We shall take accasion to speak of other advertisers from time to time even if we cannot speak about all of them this week. The active ad vertising campaign conducted by Deni son merchants is having its effect in in creased business a 1 along the line. Whether they mean to or not every advert'ser helps every other advertiser and the effect is cumulative, bringing trade to Denison from every part of the county. house. On the arrival of Mr. Smith, he went in quest of Anderson with a shot gun. r? a W "5 6 V, n' This is a cut bf the machine that will set type for the Review next month. It is not a linotype it sets actual type and distrib utes automatically. Two men with this machine can do the work of six men by hand composition. A DUNLAP SENSATION.

Moeller Bros. Buy and Will Take Possession on Next Monday. H. W. and Fred Moeller have pur chased the John Klinker meat market and will take possession Monday morn ing. The Klinker market has been forging to the front and we see no rea son why the new.firm should not hold and increase the business. Tbe Moeller Bros, are well known to all. They are industrious, straight forward and honest. They deserve success. Henry was obliged to give up his fiourshng business in South Dakota on account of his wife's ill health and we prophesied when he returned to Denison that he would not long remain idle. The sale was effected to-day and we have not learned as to Mr. Kiinker's plans. He is a good business man how ever and we hope he may remain in Denison. Mr. Conrey who was so seriously in jured in a ditch a few weeks ago. is now slowly convalescing, a fact his many friends, will be pleased to know. Last week Warren Romans, whose health has recently been the cause of such great anxiety to his relatives and friends, under went a second operation for appendicitis at a Sioux City hospital. Tbe operation proved much more severe than bad been expected. Warren is now doing finely and it is hoped that he may be able to re over Sunday. It is the hope of all that Warren may soon recover his usual health and spirits. THE SHAWS ARE EXPECTED. Mrs. Leslie M. Shaw and Daughters Will Visit Denison' This Week. Mrs. Leslie M.

SEVEN Cupid *3 3* M## Court House of County On nday thfj board of supervisors held an important meeting at which it was decided to use the basement of the county jiil for the heating plant ot the new court house instead of using the temporary court bouse as first planned. It would seetn as If someone had made a stupid blander in planning to uso tbe temporary office building for this pur pise and that when it came to the working out of the scheme it was found to be very expensive and practically impossible. It is said that tbe change will save several thousands of dollars, besides being much more convenient and economical in operation. The on}y wonder seems to be that it was not thought of untii this late date. HAS A SECOND OPERATION. Warren Romans Undergoes Another Severe Operation at Sioux City. COUPLES WED.
