Gillou's great slaughter of winter goods as announced above was the most no ticeable feature of the holiday trade In this county last week. Ills trade last Saturday was simply enormous, which day has been followed by a week unusually lively for a week following Christmas. It is unquestion ably truo that this Is owing to the great re ductions made in prices on a Btock ho great It Is customary to make low prices to clear out a broken stock or special lines, but a slaughter of a complete stock like this Is un usual, as every buyer knows. The reduced prices will continue until further notice, and if buyers want the greatest valuo to be ob tained for their money they will call at Oil lex's at once. Inspection of stock invited. A f trd.

Beat lunch In the city, at Pierguc's. Such of the farmers of the vicinity as feed crushed corn to their Btock, are obliged to go to Dayton for the purpose of having it ground. There is no mill in this city adapted to grinding corn and the cobs together, so a prominent farmer informs us. He use about three loads a week, necessitating thut many trips from south of the river. Trll it Out. Why not'r food news uuffht to be told, aud it is good news that Hunt's Remedy ha. cured the worst of kidney diseases, and can do it again and again. There are abundant testimonials to this fact. Mr. Joshua Tut hill, of Saginaw, Mich., was cured of Bright's Disease; Mr. John Hunt, of Providence, of dropsy, when death seemed irnmineLt; Mr. 8. G. Mason, of Providence, of rheumatism which crippled him; and a host of others of similar diseases which threatened dissolu tion. And what Hunt's Remedy has done it will still do. It is the great kidney and liver medicine of the age. ''Tell out tbe good newt to all. iiaf ea winter sua filLLERI'S slick no line oi tinier or TIio I.Hsr, We Hope. Our mistaken friends of the Timet and He- puMiean have seen tit, in a spirit of hunillia tlon and semi repentance, to take back a part of ihe unpleasant things they have been eayinjr about Fisko A Beem, the clothiers of the northwest. The former, to be sure, stoops to a low sort of forgery in publishing a pretended statement which was born In tuj fertile brain of the Time man alone, but as no one believes anything he ever says no offense is taken. This is a part of the Timr' admission : "As to tine goods we find we are mistaken. The extensive stock of this great house of Fisko Beem affords a place tor the rich as well as the poor to buy their raiment. We mustnree that tlicy oiler the same extensive chance of choice as does the New York, Phil adelphia or Boston houses." That is all very good, and it Is the point we were contending for. The Itiyutilictm scribe Is about us reckless in his state incuts as the other, but ho con tents himself with uttering a few common place delusion-). It will bo remembered that some time ugo hu said that if overcoats were ouly $ each we thought he could buy a "bandaner," If it was sold at a proportionate price. It is needless to add that the weather has been too severe for him to be out, aud consequently he knows very little of what Fiske it Beem, or anyone else may have XMevertneiess he now says, (which is nearer the truth than His Stupid Highness usually gets) that "of courso Fiske & Beem have all tcjidi of clothing for everybody, and of quali ties and prurt to suit, though there la one thing In which they ue remarkable, and that is tbey have an uniform system of prices and the same prices on the samo goods for every body. They mark their goods in plain fig ures, so that he who runs may read, and they never vary them. Unit is, they never ak one figure and drop to another. Tbo buyer aud salesman must be governed by the price marked on each article or suit of articles. They never allow any variation in this rule, but live up to It strictly, and woe to the clerk who dare disobey it for anyone. Ills fate would bo promptly Indicated by the "g. b." We were satisfied, too, in our observations made yesterday, that Fiske it Beem keep as fine a quality oi clothing and of clothes as can oe found anywhere in the I'nlon; that Is, they keep only the better classes of the more desirable goods, that is, there are certain goods that go into business men's suits.
