II.. J. 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.

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

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'
"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.

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

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.
