rUdsummer Bargain Counter
RICHMOND can justly boast of many of the most magnificent stores in tho South?Stores in which almost any want can be supplied, ancTat
prices which have given this city a most enviable reputation as a place of residence. It is,truly said that a dollar goes further in a Rich?
mond store than in the stores of any other Southern oity. It is a fact that the great stores of Richmond are one of her chief sources of
pride. The greatest Department Store of them all, however, is the institution which comes the nearest mooting all the wants of the people?the
great institution which advertises every article?makes a specialty of bargains; secures work forche unemployed; sells fish or shoes; rents farms
or employs school teachers; furnishes summer? boarders, and sells old machines. This great institution is the
.....TEE-DEE BARGAIN COUNTER DEPARTMENT STORE..
Small?But Great.
One of the greatest bargains, indeed the very greatest bargain,
placed to-day on the Tee-Dee Bargain Counter, is the price of
the Tee-Dee Ads. These Ads. are small and easy to write, but
they possess a value far out. of proportion to their size. Their
strength lies largely in their numbers. There are so many of
them and they are so interesting that everybody reads them for
the information th?y contain. ?
Hero Is the prlco of. thoso llttlo wan?

tisemont can ho stated in ono t ?-,

the attention of tho public and to bring1
wonderful results. It will only *} sn

Thoso 1,000 words will hlro servante,,

Pianos, Oil Stoves, or
Drugs.
The Tee-Dee Bargain Coun?
ter is not discriminating. The
man who looks here for what
he wants, will likely, find it,
whether it be a piano at a bar?
gain, oil stoves that will burn
or drugs that are pure. If you
have a piano to sell or a sewing
machine that you- do not need,
you are at liberty to place it on
the Tee-Dee Bargain Counter.
Suppose you should sell a piano for
$150 nnd make a profit on It of $50,
would you not ho satisfied to advertiso
it for a week at a cost
of., ..
Or by buying a copy of The. Tlmes
Dlspatch and rending the Tee-Dee
$1.50
Wants you might buy that oil stove
for less than half Its<valuo: Tho same
thing holds good on any article of
household necessity. The pnpor f O/-.
for a week would only cost you * *>**
If you have drugs, or groceries te
sell, you can tell the public about their
quality and tholr price?just put them
on tho Toe-Dee Bargain Counter: a
5,000-word contract will u?,?-??7 C/l
cost only . f?/.OV
Town Lots or Farms
Sold or Exchanged.
Have you been considering
leaving the farm and moving
into the town? or have you
some town property on hand
which you would like to sell or
exchange? There are more
ways to feed cattle than by
turning them into the wheat
fields, and there are more ways
(and less expensive) to sell
that land than by putting it up
at public function. Why not
spend a *fe\v cents telling The
Times-Dispatch readers about
it? It's pretty safe guessing
.tha*t several of the thousands of
subscribers are willing to make
you an offer.
Ttenl Estate can go on the Tee-Dee
Bnrgiii/i Counter just as well ns any?
thing else and hy using the Te?rDeo
Ads., you might be able to sell your
farm with an expense of less if? i ?\?\

A Good Man Por a
Vacant Position.
The Irishman's rabbit that
cost more to cook than it was
worth, was much like some
men who apply for positions.
That is why it is well to have
a large number from which to
pick. A Tee-Dee Want Ad.
wil bring a host of them. You
have a chance to get the matt
best suited to your needs. You
save money and work along? the
line of least resistance, when
you use Tee-Dee Wants to sup?
ply your needs. ?

The man who has ' never seen may
very well doubt the wonders of the
modern world. It Is tho samo with
the man who has never tried advertis?

you have machinery of any kind to
sell, Just try advertising It In the col?
umns of tho Tlmes-DIspatch. '
Summer Boarders.
Those who desire Summer Boarders or those who are looking
for a cool place to spend the summer/meet here in the great Tee
Dee Department Store. It's a convenient meeting place/ Very
many are here and there is a good chance for selection. If one
does not please, you arc at liberty to try another.
One Toe-Dee Ad. for a Summer
Boarding Place will undoubtedly bring
many replica. Yo*u can havo your
choice of seaside or mountains, hotels
or private families; the llttlo Ter

Men's Furnishings,

All of these are articles that
can be and are daily placed on
the Tee-Dee Great Department
Bargain Counter. If yours are
not there, it will pay you to
have them placed there at once
and if you are in need of any
of these articles or almost any?
thing else, turn over to the
Tee-Dee pages and you will
probably find them on the Bar?

To buy a paper so as to be able to

A Good Boarding House
For a Quarter.
Toni need not go out nnd tramp
the streets to find It. The Tee-Dee
way is much the simpler way. It Is
a settled fact that? a few cents spent
on a Tee-Dee Want Adwill put you
In touch with lots of good boarding
houses.
Situations Supplied.
If yourpresent situation does
not suit you, it is easy to break
away and find a new job by
using., the Tee-Dee Wants.
Every day that you. are out of
employment costs you money.
It docs not take many days of
idleness to roll up a good-sized
amount.
If you uso Uie Too-Dee Wants, the
man who wants your services will be
sure to find out that you want I U.

tho hard fighting of cavalryman
around Boonesville, Md., Mr, J. J. Green,
of the Union army, received a severe
wound on his head by the hands of a
Ninth Virginia cavalryman. Mr, W, p.

the soldier who delivered the blow, Tho

had- been doing somo hard figliti'-? |
around this Maryland town, and wns I
slowly retreating wjien reinforcements j
arrived, and they again faced tho ."-?euiy
and a hand to hand fight took place. :
Mr. Danco onmo In contact with a cav- ?
nlrj man who was directly in front of ?
him, and with his saber forcod him to
dismount. When on Ilio ground ho drew
his pistol, 1111,1 waa ill-nut to tire a fatil
shot, when Air. Dance, filili In Ills saddle,
again brought lite saber Into action and
struck his opponent Just over the right
pyo Inflicting a wound-which rendered his
ma? unconscious, and he rode on,'think?
ing? that Jils blow*'was fatal, and con?
tinued to carry this idea until a short
time ago, when Mr, Green, moved, hero
from Now York and settled only a short
distance from the' home of Mr- Dance' !
While Mr. Dance was relating this In- !
cldent as he had often done to his
friends, Mr. Green, happened to be one of.
