OPENING
Of our elegant new Store Room, on
Saturday Morning, September 8.
We shall inaugurate the completion of our new building
Wilmington public the largest, most attractive and cheapest
stock of
DRY GOODS
ever exhibited in this city. Believing that actions, not words,
are best appreciated by a discerning public, we refrain from tjie
verbose and often false rhetoric of the average advertisement
and simply announce a few facts which every cash buyer of dry
goods would do well to consider and act upon.
In our silk Department you will find a large collection of
the popular and desirable weaves, such as Faille Française,
Rbadames, Moires, and the staple and ever desirable Gros
Grains. But there are two or three things of special interest
that we wish to call attention to, such as a lot of colored Satin
Rhadames, in the desirable shades, at 75 cents a yard. We
think you will call this fabric as good as that you have been
paying a dollar for. Also a lot of Faille Française, in profuse
assortment of colors at gi cents a yard, a beautiful dress mater
ial of great merit for the price. Then we have a better number
at $1.10 and a superb quality at $1.50. From our large line of
Black Silks we name one number of more than ordinary merit.
We have only three pieces of it ; we can get no more. This is
a Guinet Silk, beautiful and brilliant fabric, price $1.11 a yard.
Please compare with anything you have seen of late at $1.50.
In our Dress Goods Department we will make a very
large and choice offering of the newest and most desirable dress
materials such as 1 lenriettas, both wool and silk warp, Cash
meres, Cassimers, French and American Broad Cloths, Plaid
and Stripe Novelties, etc. We make mention of a 48-inch
French Broad Cloth, a beautiful fabric, very desirable, at 94
cents, value for $1.25 a yard. A 50-inch American Broad Cloth
at 50 cents a yard, the most sensible and useful dress fabric as
well as the cheapest, to be found anywhere, At 25 cents a yard
we have a large collection of 36-inch wool dress goods worth
50 cents, splendid values. We have an excellent light in which
to show our silks and dress goods.
In our Shawl Department we will show by far the largest
stock we ever had and at lower prices than ever.
At our Hosiery Counter we will show what we think is by
far the best bargain ever offered in Ladies' Regular-made Im
ported Hose. We have 150 dozens of them, they vary in
value from 25 cents to $1.00 a pair. You can have your choice
for 19 cents a pair. We call attention to our Ladies' and Gen
tlemen's Regular-made Hose in plain and fancy styles, includ
ing 50 dozens Gentlemen's full regular English super-stout Half
Hose, gusseted, worth 25 cents, for 13 cents a pair, two pairs
for 25 cents.
We offer a good, strong 4-hutton Kid Glove in the desira
ble sizes and colors, at 29 cents a pair. We have an unusually
large stock of Kids at 50 cents, $1, $1.25, $1.50 and $1.75;
also a nice line of Gents' Kids at $1 and $1.503 pair.
We offer a large line of Umbrellas at such prices as ought
to make them sell at sight, and name a special bargain in 26
inch twilled silk, not all silk but a Union Cloth; price for plain
handles 89 cents, gold tipped, 99 cents. The reason for selling
these goods so low will be explained at the counter.
At our Handkerchief Counter you will be surprised at the
beautiful goods we are selling as low as 5 cents, 4 for 25 cents,
3 for 25 cents, decidedly cheaper than we have been able to
sell such gooTls in the past. We have a large line of elegant
Embroidered Handkerchiefs at 25, 50 cents and higher prices.
If you would like to sec the most in quantity and quality
in the way of a Turkish Towel, 57 inches long, 28 inches wide,
also a bleached Damask Towel 50 inches long, 23 inches wide,
white and colored borders, we think we have it at 25 cents
each. We also call special attention to a lot of 3^ Damask
Napkins, at $1.17 per dozen, which we think worth $1.50
dozen, but you can judge for yourself.
All over the store you will find attractions and bargains
which you arc cordially invited to look at whether you wish to
buy or not.

A PERFECT PIECE OF WORK.
The New Calendaring Machine Hull! hy
the Lobdell Car Wheel Company.
The Lobdell Car Wheel Company has
just completed a paper calendering ma
chine- for the Union Machine Company of
Fitchburg, Moms. The usual size of cal
endering machines, have a stuck of nine
rolls. Tin
a machine is unusually larg*and
lias 11. The rolls are placed horizontally
in the frame, one above the other, and
each one resting upon the lower one, so
that when the lowest roll of the set is
turned it moves the others.
The face of the rolls are ninety two
inches long. The diameter 0 / the lowest
roll is twenty inches, that of the next
highest ton inches. The top one is four
teen inches in diameter and each of the
intervening rolls eight inches. The rolls
are of iron, the surface chilled to a depth
of from f of an inch to an inch and a
half.
They
are turned as true as
possible in lathes by skillful mechanics,
and thou ground and polished by wheels
of corundum. So perfect are the
machines aad so skillful the workmen
that do this work, that the rolls un
turned and ground perfectly true, and
rarely need any returning or grinding to
make the surface a cylinder wituout a
Haw in its circumferance.
Not the faintest line of light can he
seen between the brightly polished relis
of the new machine as it'sets in tho shop
ready for shipment. If a strip of the
thinest tissue paper were put between
two of the rolls a thread of light could be
seen their whole length. This machine
weighs, completed, about 32,000 pounds.
It will do its work well, with an occas
ional returning of the rolls, for two gen
erations.
■ This is the finishing machine for the
manufacture of paper. The partly dried
pulp, in a thin sheet, passes over the top
roll and then between it aud the next
lower. It keeps on in this manner iu
and out between each set of rolls until it
comes out at the bottom smooth aud
hard, and i i wound on a reel,
dell car wheel company make a specialty
of chilled Iron rolls, but build

A friend of William H, Quinn who is
candidate for the State Senate, this
morning expressed the following opinion;
"'The work of William 11.Quinn in City
Council has been for the bust interests of
the city. In 1887 he was first elected
to City Council hy a majority of three,
and was tho first Democrat elected from
the Second ward for twelve

that in 1869 he was returned hy a major
ity of 153. At the time of
his second election, Mr Quinn

the width of two car tracks. Mr. Quinn
went to work and through his efforts
those streets were brought to their pres
ent condition. Through his efforts
also the old City Hospital was estab
lished and the subsequent Infamy that
took place there was after Mr. Quinn
left Council in tho year 1873.
"Mr. Quinn returned to Council in 1886
and his course there since that time has
always been on the side of the public.
He hue taken a leading position and to
