SYDHOR & HUNDLEY,
"Well Mr. Hundley, I would like a few points on what you
saw and bought in Now York, Grand Bapids and othor markets
for our fall trade r1'' .
"You can juBt say the market is full of pretty goods, and that
Sydnor & Hundley bought liberally." t
" About when will our stock bogin to arnve ?
" I bought some six or eight full ours. One car from the lia
pids lyis already been shipped ; the others will follow rapidly, so
the bulk of goods bought should be on our floors by September
15th. I may say I had quite a complimont paid us. I was ap
proached by several leading firms, who wished us to handlo their
lines exclus'ively here in Bichrnond." (
" Give me a (bird's-eye view' of purchasos?
" I note our trade each year demands a bettor grade of goods,
and with this in view, I bought more froely in goods along these
lines. For instance, in parlor goods I bought a three-piece \\ hite
Mahoganv Suite, very raro and tony, to sell at about $250.00.
Also a very handsome Gold Suit, to sell at about the same money,
aside from a varioty of three- and ftve-piece suits, to soll any
whero from $20.00 to" $175.00. I paid partioular attontion to the
selection of Covers, as adapted to style of each piece, I was iin
pressod with thn show of Davenports, in old Colonial patterns,
and will have ;t fine line at from $27.00 to $175,00. I paid special
?attentlon to Leather Goods, in odd pioces and suits; a lino of
beautifully Tufted Chairs ancl Booker from $30.00 to $90.00. I
may add the samo of Leather Couches at about thoso samo flgures,
A very handsome lino of High and Low Boys aro also coming. I
bought quite a nuinbor of Celorettos in down-to-date idoas also.
I mado a point to soloct somo very attractivo odd Dressors, Chif
foniers, ancl Toilet Tables, in mahogany, bird's-oyo maplo and
curlv birch; a special GhiiTonior, called tlio ' Ladios' Comfort,'
with large drawers bolow, doors in tho centl'O ancl small drawors
above, In gentlemen's Dressing Oabinets 1 havo somo pri_o win
nei'H. ' Hall Racks, with wardfobo eft'oote, will bo very popular,
and I bought soveral, besido a nico soloct ion of Hanging Hall
Mirrors, with Sottees to match. In selecting D iniiiK-room Furni?
ture I paid special attontion, and bought the ' very pick of tho
market.' Thoro is a vast difforence in makos of ^oods, but seoing
tho goods on the floors enabled me to buy the vory bost qualitios
and valuos. Thoro aro numbors of othor articlos iu noveltins I
selected ioo numorous to recall, but you can say our stock displuy
this fall will bo a surprise to our many patrons,"

By the People.
Tlie Norfolk County Democrat wants
sonators olected by the peoplo. It says:
It Is, of course, true that the people
sometlntes selct pretty sorry stlck. for
govemors or something ot that sort. But
that doos not by any means constituto an
argument for the presont mothodot
chooslng senators. It is not wholly a quos
tlon of the mon chosen hy whlch the sys?
tem must be judged. Tho method of
operatlon must nlso be considered.
Now what aro tho facts as to the opera?
tlon of Uie present system. No man can,
as a rule, be chosen to tho United States
Senate unlei. ho ls amonable to the In
fluencc of certaln powerful Interests and ls
known to he so. He must be a man wltn
a collar on. Tho collar may not choke
and it may not bo consplcuous, but it is
there Just tho snme. _
It seoms to us thnt a system thnt works
this way Is not nn un qualified success.
Thls is from tho Hallfax Gazette:
"When farmors prosper every clnss or
business ls gonornl buoyant. Whlle tne
?wheat and ont crops In the Pledmont
section of Vlrglnla were short nnd In?
terlor In tho Valley tho crops were falr?
ly good. The grass crop In all sectlons
of grnss-grnwing countles was nn ex
ceptionally good ono and now commands
tho hlghest prlco for several yoars. The
' gardons wero never botter and vege
tnhles plentlful everywhere. The applo
crop ln most countles Is abundant, nnd
ls a sourco of great Incomo. The crop
ot corn nover looked moro promlslng than
lt does now, nnd even lf thore Is but
llttlo raln horeafter the yleld will be
g-reat, Tolincco ls promlsing.but owlng
to the scarclty of labor the acreago ls
less than last year. The prlmlngs of the
crop aro belng mnrkoted, and whero they
havo good color, nre commandlng ns good
prices as they did last yoar. when tho
general average was about nvo dollars.
