As tho details day by day are (rettint; guttled into Htnoutb running order, the new store of II. J. liii.i.KN becomes daily more popular with the public, both with the old customers of the house, and with new ones. Never bus a change of locu tion proved more generally satisfactory; for, us aid bwfore, Mr. Gillen's Increased facilities for handling tjoods luve enabled him to Increase bis stock In a department in proportion, making a complete house that has no rival In this city. The spring stock now open is a superb one in all lines, being complete In all directions, show ing all the novelties of the dry goods trade, all offered at new prices, facts which havo had decided weight with nil classes, and particularly with those only occasional buyers, who have called "to see the new store." And certainly with the new good, the carpet department and the Increased conveniences buyers now find there, the house Is in a condition to please tho roost exacting and supply every lino of goods this market calls for, such us it never had be fore. The development of the house during tho past few weeks has been wonderful, and those who knew the house on Court street would hardly recognize It now, so much has it lmprov ed In every way. One might almost say a new house of the first class has been added to it dur ing the past month. Mr, Gillen invites till to call on him, assuring them he will show them goods and prices that will please them. The Churches. Baptist.

The "Old White Corner" clothing store, M Stlefel, Manager, has uulto beaten Its record this season in opening up a stock of spring clothing. This bouse has long beeu recognized as one of the best clothing houses in this part of the state, both as to size and character of stock and fen eral cheapness of goods. It has done an enor. moua business, and is doing one now; and has at all times enjoyed the confidence of the public, But this season particular pains have been tak. en, as the stock shows, to place the house In a position to claim an even greater support from the public. There is literally no end to the ne goods in slock. All grades of clothing, all sizes and styles, for all ages, lu all fashionable and re liable fabrics ore on their shelves and counters, Every class of goods known to be worth public notice are here, made up in the best manner. And while men and youths can be fitted from any grade of goods desired, special attention baa be'ii paid to the lino for boys and children. These stocks reijulre careful attention to be thoroughly satisfactory; and the present one is very large, containing a wide rang of goods, to fit all ages, at your own price. The clothing de partment is certainly one of the largest ever hown here, und must be popular in this county this spring. In adttion there is a full lino of huts and raps, containing all the new styles ot stiff and soft hats for men, boys and children, a very complete stock. The line of furnishing goods also has been iu- creascd with new goods, new linen goods, neck wear, scurfs, underwear of ull kinds, hosiery, all goodsof every description. Also such specialties s rubber goods, umbrellas celluloid collars and ull', etc. Besides these Is the stock of trunks probably the largest in the city. This trade has been a penalty for some years, so that they secure trunks now-a days by car load lots. This line, with valises und kindred articles, Is an immense one, and shows the thoroughness with which the house has been stocked this season in all epurtmcuts. The house expects an enormous trade this sea- son, und the stock laid In ought to bring it. It s one In which there are goods for everybody; which, combined with the proverbial lowness of rices at this house and their methods of square euling with everynody, ensures a most profita ble and prosperous season. We recommend our aders to call on them. Wui, Trailing baa a fine assortment of the lat est going clothing. Give him a call.
