The Important Feature,
The sale of seasonable goods at H. J. Gil
lea's is the moat notable feature of the
week, in a business way. The euooess of the
gale being greater as the season . comes
more and more toward winter.
Speoial attention should be called to the
cloaks, dress-goods and carpets stocks as
offering Inducements that are really without
equal in this county at this time. Special
prices are offered on particularly fine ana
complete stocks in these departments, and
make the house specially worth a careiui
investigation by buyers.
All other lines offer rare inducements in
carrvine out the aim of the house to make
a small profit on Urge sales, rather than
a large profit on a small volume. The house
desires all to call and examine the stock
throughout and to compare prices with any
house in the city or county.

Hon. J. N. Perrin of St. Clair county de
lirered a splendid demooratio speech in
Turner Hall, last erening. He was esoorted
to the hall by the Jeffersonian Club, in full
uniform, and in a few minutes the hall was
filled to ths doors. He made a brilliant run
ning fire upon the republican platform, and
provoked round after round of laughter and
applause. His deductions from the Mills
bill and the senate tariff bill, were oontinc
ing and able. He showed that the reduction
in both bills was subHtantially the same on
many articles, but that the Senate bill, while
making about the same reduction on street

penny on heavy rails, made in Pennsylvania

A Proirreiuilve Firm.
Gar & Son, the carriage and road cart
manufacturers of this city, have purohaaed
lh") Cushman foundry building of Mr. Shu
ler, and are now remodelling it, to suit their
requirements, as a carriage and cart factory.
The building, already a large and roomy one,
is being increased in size by raising the east
wing, a large oneBtory addition, to two
stories In height, adding about one-third
more space, while the entire interior te re
modelled into offices and departments. The
building will be ready for occupancy in
about five weeks, when the foroe now em
ployed at the East End factory will be
mved down and the new feetory stocked
with machinery of the best approved makes.
Several years ago the superior workman.
ship and materials turned out by this firm,
with the aid of the restless energy of Simeon
Gay, began to bring its name into the offioe
of every wholesale and retail dealer in the
country, and orders poured in upon them so
fast that they were forced to double their
capacity, whiffh was soon accomplished, by
the erection of a substantial briok addition
to the old factory on Clinton street. But
business kept on increasing, and it was not
long until they were again compelled to find
more room, and the wagon factory of John
D. Vette was rented, to be used solely for
the manufacture of the now famous Gay
Road Cart, the old factory with its additions
being ustd for carriages and buggies. This
sufficed, with considerable crowding, until
Oct. 1st, when the firm saw that if they were
to supply the demand for their goods at all,
they must have more room. This determin
ed them in buying the Cushman foundry,
and yet, with the many thousand feet of
floor they possess, it is etill a problem
whether or not they have sufficient room.
Mr. Gay, sr., says they haven't, and it is not
unlikely that before the season of '89 comes
to a close, they will be forced to builifa large
addition to the newly acquired property.
As the past of the firm has been brilliant,
their future is even more eo, and the day is
not far distant when Gay & Son wilt con
trol one of the largest carriage and cart man
ufactoriee in the United Statee.

Forbes' Anodyne Salve is a soothing rem
edy and will not cause pain. It is sure cure
for scalds aid burns.
The cloak trade this week has been the
largest- of the season at J. E. Scott & Co.'s.
More cloaks were sold by this firm on last
Thursday than any other day in the history
of the house.

It Still Move.
Old Dull Time still moves by the door, he

Because we are so busy. The buyers of
those new fall and winter overooats have
been rushing us all week, but after one
usual rest, we are with them again. We can
stand it if you can. We would rather you
would come earlier in the morning and less
at a time, but if you must come all at once,
e can't help it. Those overooats are
enough to cause a rush anywhere, and we
have often wondered that it has noUbeoome
a panic. They are so well made, so stylish
and so dependable that we are not surprised.
They are in all styles and nearly all fabrics
suitable for fall and winter wear. The new
Meltons, with late trimmings, are popular,
and more so than ever, at least the rush for
them has not diminished. Then those
