age with a grand optnintj. It was pronounced by
all the ladlw who gave them a call a decided
success, In point of variety, elegance and artistic
display of goods. When we reflect back to the

Imagined a small rivulet swoolen to a mighty
stream. In place of makinir a meatrro attempt
to fill up by putting and spreading their goods,
they have got every available nook and crook,
up aud down stairs, completely packed with as
flue a line of dry goods as ever was seen In this
city at one time. If they coutlnuo using their su
perior judgment in the selection of desirable and
stylish goods, their courteous manners aud ac
commodating ways, we predict for them a brilli
ant future. Their trade N gradually increasing,
having now reached a magnitudo far beyond
their expectations. The plausible reason for this
is, they are close buyers, paying cash for their
goods and recelvlug the discounts. Their ex
penses are perhaps three times smaller than any
other house in the city. These are items worth
considering, as it enables them to undersell all
competitor. On making our tour of Inspection
we noticed several new cases of goods just op
en ed, consisting of the newest and latest spring
styles, each as brocaded, striped, checked and
plain grenadines; the same lu bunting, summer
silks, cashmeres, etc., with beautiful trimmings
to match. Every lady who visits our city will
find it to their advantage to call and see these
goods before purchasing elsewhere. They have
also an elegant line of parasols, dolmans, cloaks,
etc. Remember, a word to the wise is sufficient.
