Our salute regarding Satur?
day's traffic, and Monday's
business, is made today.
It is well to remember that
We do Not Advertise
on Sunday,
and bearing this in mind, pay
unusual attention to such
statements as are made on (Iiis
particular day of (lie week.
It is furthermore suggested
that our notices be read daily,
as a new announcement is
made in each issue.
In view of the vesy great
desirability of Black goods, for
separate skirts, and entire suits,
attention is called to the sub?
joined list. Every one is prime
value, orthodox worth.
36 in. Aiohair, special value,
25c. 34 in. Fancy raised ef?
fect, 29c. Will ' wear well,
look well.
38 in- Figured Brilliantine?
Jacquard 'effect, a positive
beauty, a notably good (hing,
and only 50c.
38 in. Fancies of proper
spring- weight, yet possessing
the coveted heavy appearance,
may be had at $?e. I hey are
rightly classed as leaders.
46 in, Crepon, of which we
have Blue (Navy) as well, is
50c. This, by us, is justly
deemed among- the best of the
best. Crepon now occupying
a leading position, such possi?
ble buying- offers line oppor?
tunity for good buying.
Just before writing this ad?
vertisement, we had *<a canvass
made of the silk stock. Had
no idea it was so strong. A
wide selection is before you'
right prices prevail, and styles
are in keeping with Fashions,
dictates.
Yard wide Cambric?quite
cheap at Be, is still offered at
G)ic. The heaviest tribute
that can be paid, is, that no
one who ever wanted such a
thing, ever quibbled over it's
worth or price.
Lookers after shirt waist
materials find a paradise here.
Ginghamdom presents the dis?
tinct checks both large and
small, as well as the comming
?led Tartan effects. The line,
largest and strongest, is popu?
larly priced, 10c.
Percale buyers frankly and
voluntarily say, "You have the
prettiest styles and best assort?
ment in town." We keep up
to high-water mark, having
bought two new lots last week
and two this.
Madras possesses charms
peculiarly its own. Of soft
texture, it ham-s gracefully.
Of distinctive style, presents
the unusual appearance. Some
people court such, even in a
Shirt Waist. Do you?
An Apron Gingham at 4c.
is not always get-able. To?
day we show it.
Tit could hardly be expected
thai one day's selling would
exhaust such a stock of Appli?
que as was shown last Friday.
We have placed everything
thai now remains on a sepa?
rate table, and on most of it,
the prices are much reduced
from regular figures.
If you want a Bureau Set, a
Scarf, a Square, a pair of Pil?
low Shams, or a like some?
thing, a good opportunity is
before you.

IMMIGRATION AND THE CITY PROBLEM
Itov. I>r. Whnrton IMneussew "Dur
Foreign Friioi??ls Among U*," ??<?
Uev. Mr. .Moore Oller? Suggestion?
.. us to ?*KoW to Jlnlio JVorlolU nltols
icr Illy."
A good siz '1 iadiaicnce was present at
McKendro; Mei.'h.cidist church last night
?:o heair the two Bible speakers selected
to discuss' the. two Important sociologi?
cal topics > if "Our Foreign Friends
Auto.:}? Us" and "How to-Mak.- Norfolk
a BelJtcr City."
Colonel William JLa.mb, who was to
have sp.ken on the former topic with
i.'ii Rev. Dr. M. 1!. Wbarton was ?11
eivotdubly absent, and tho Doctor han?
dled the KtihJ. ot ahm.. The Rev. .Mr.
Moon 1 was to have spoken with Mayor
Mayo last Thursday, Imp as he was sick
at the time, he delivered hid addp.ss
hurt evening. ?
..Mr. <!. B. FermJbi e presided over
lib*' meeting, which was operated with
prayer by the Rev. Dr. J. J. Hall. Dr.
Wharton wiau then Introduced by t?te
president. The 11> eUrir said the problem
of a for Igr.i population was presented
to Am' rlcans more forcibly itha.n to any
Oth T nation, because we a.n; a r.:o w
c tin try, and in 1 grout or y movements all
trend t ward now c1 luhtrles. He review?
ed tha history of such movements, isdtO
111 enumerating their bor.i.-li'ts, lit? said:
"What has immigration done for
Anierlca?" Why Just let us look 3.1 the
financial feaulrc alone. We lind tIv
average announ^ brought by each Immi?
grant IAj !>:? il> tr: $|ii0. making n total
. if some $16,000,000.000 since lmm!grn,r.its
began lo come lo this country. This
Immlgra.tloh has strengthened us In va?
rious ways. It has made tts invincible
In arms. Why, my friends, foreign im
inigP'.nts whipped the South. The.:n lop,
they strengthen 'our educational insti?
tutions. They go; the idea of early
and c .i.'npl.te educiillons In their native
countries and they have b?sen Instru?
mental In ths establishing of our grejl.'
institutions of learning. Thus we see
liow they have added to our Intellectual
progress, as well ns cur material de
vcS omenU
"Briefly summing up, Immigration
has in,::d: America. Therefore, we should
w- le ime it, u.ad we do. This vail" free
domain can accommodate all of the
right kind.
"But then:' Is no question which has
r.ot a dark side.. Immigration has a
very dark side. There must be wise re?
strictions or, else injury will Infallibly
result, to Mils country. We hllive crim?
inal exclusion laws anitl (pauper exclu?
sion laws, and those have. <cip= rated ben
cflciently. Then those anarchists -who.
Ileeir.g from di spot ism. desire >to over?
turn even free Institutions a.r.kl t?;i Sllb
M/ilui: therefor th'Plr belief, a pande?
monium In which law and order have
no paace. This class must lie attended
?I '. Then there fa Chinese Immigration
which is. perhaps, the most objectta-arb
bl>-' of all, but which has already b. n
Vigorously restricted.
"Now wlv.u to do with this vast ac?
quired population becomes our problem
and a. Very t-i-rious one. It. Is, to'.
we must convert cull these people ;i ?
Christianity. We must teach these
people tbe Hildo. Introduq; them hr'.h
our churches and Sunday schools and
Surround them with our Christian in
fluence. We have n great foreigni nils
sSunary Held wti h imp, as 'it wen-, und
it' w..- properly cultivate iJ we shall
have a great Christian population
united for l-hc good of humanity, and
we can hear of rumors of war without
fearing but uhrn! as tin enlightened ami
Chrbtliah nation we tun ' meet ull
comers."
Tii.- Doctor cleyscd with a part riot le
a.h)te, which pointed h?a discourse
well.
Misn s. Kindred 'Williams thccii sang
a li.ui.o'ul solo, after which Rev. .i.
W. Meoro wtis Introduced. His subject.
"How to Make .Norf.dk a Heiter City."
was lu i.idled in rigorous style, He
spoke, in par:, as follows:
"i'i.'is h'ave become problems be?
cause of their great growth, which is
destined In tho cex t century iiS be mar
velously greater. Th'.s 1-s true of the
South, as well as those of the Hast or
of the w orld. One of attic cause? of ibis
growth are varied. Men like to flock
together."
The speaker thi:>n referred to I ho de
serlO.Sn ..f the farms for the city, add
assigned lilie Im prove me n I in the m?
clrlni ry ua a potent cause fc?r this
movement.
"T'ln; greatest danger we have, he
continued. >? the heterogeneous charac?
ter of the populatlccu Then there is
the separation ? ,f the classes living in
the o'Jtles? orje living In coie setrlilon and
an uher elsewhere. So we have the
probh m of the city.
