REGARDLESS OF COST.
We claim to have the best and largest stock of spring ana summer goods ever
brought to Bastrop. Call and be convinced of that fact. Our stock is so
arranged as to give every one an idea of the goods that we keep. When
we speak in detail, we have a large and well sélected stock of la
dies' and children's fine shoes, Sandel slippers, low quarters,
for which we ask from 10 to 20 per cent less than
ANY OT HER HOUSE

WE CAJSf SAVE YOU MONET ?
Come and be convinced before our stock is picked over and don't forget the

FROM KALAMAZOO.
Editor Clarion :
It would amuse you to see with
what exactness business is done
here and how quickly customers
will remind you that 3 dozen eggs
at 12 1-2 cents per dozen amount
to 37 cents, and not 38 cents ;
therefore if they hand you a quar
ter, a dime, and a three cent piece,
they wait for the one cent change.
To give you an idea how close
groceries are sold, I will mention a
few prices : A prime coffee is sold
for 15 cents, snow white sugar,
known here as Soffee "A," at 9
cents, a beautiful golden yellow at
8 cents, 50 pounds flour of pure
white Michigan winter wheat at
$1.38; 3 1-2 pounds soda crackers,
such as we do not see in Bastrop,
at 25 cents ; a choice wrapped soap
at 6 cents per pound ; green tea
from 33 cents up to choice Japan
at 60 cents ; dried apples, 4 cents ;
and while choice potatoes are re
tailed at $1, apples sell for 50 cents
per bushel. This moment my
brother refused to pay 35 cents for
a part of a load Baldwins, a fine
apple. Ice is delivered at 1-4 cent
per pound. Small mackerel are
sold at 1 cent per piece. Butter is
scarce and is bought from farmers
at 20 and 21 cents, and sold for 22
cents. Coal oU (175 degrees) is
retailed at 20 cents. And yet it is
pleasant to do business here, be
cause you deal with an intelligent
class of people. Negroes are few
and they do not occupy any impor
tant station in the community,
though they are incomparably more
genteel than those in the South.
The wheat prospects are discour
aging—almost without precedent.
Thousands upon thousands of acres
will not yield the seed, (two bush
els per acre) but, unlike the South
ern States, people here are not
ruined because one of their produc
tions fails completely, though that
article be their lending one, since
they have such variety of crops—
barley, oats, corn, potatoes, apples,
butter, onions, meats, etc., etc.
Peaches, too, are killed by frost ;
there will be few, if any, raised
anywhere. '
When I was in Bastrop we
thought we were overrun with
drummers, but I find that, com
pared with this section, your crop
of that genius homo was a misera
ble failure. Most wholesalers and
manufacturers make figures at de
livery here (on staples) and then
they figure say, sugars at $8.81 or
$8.89 per 100 pounds, etc.
The State Firemen's Convention
met here yesterday, and by way of
showing what the Kalamazoo fire
department can do, at a given sig
nal by the electric fire alarm, the
Company hitched up, moved out,
run about one square, attached
hose to plug, and threw a stream
over a hundred feet high in one
minute after alarm sounded. Re
member, they have no engine, only
five hose companies, and one hook
and ladder company The force
of the water is produced by the
village water-works, and nothing
but hose need be connected with
the fire plugs, the water turnea on
and the streams, as many as may
be wanted, are thrown to any
j height required.
This "little village" is in a high
state of prosperity. The number
of factories of almost every con
ceivable kind, and already very
large, is beiDg augmented almost
daily. A mammoth canning estab
lishment for the preservation of all
kinds of meat, fruits and vegeta
bles is how in course of construc
tion, and of corn alone several hun
dred acres growth has been engaged
for canning at this establishment.
Fourteen mails arrive, and as
many depart, daily, some forty
passenger trains arrive and leave j
by the various railroads every 24 j
hours. B. B. Schuster. |

Pome of the best papers in
this State want & law that justi
fies any man for killing the vil
lain that enters the sanctity of
home and ruins a lemale's char
acter. A man can be guilty of
no crime more flagrant than that
committed by the fiend who
rains the life of a woman.
Gen. Reuben Davis, of Mis
sissippi, who flew out on the In
dependent Greenback and what
you-may -call-'em ticket last yeai,
has rehabilitated himself with
the Democratic party ä with the
acknowledgment that there are
only two parties, and he "could
not stand the racket."
The wise editor should sail
lightly down the stream of life,
because he is a good clipper.
Handy is still in the Insurance
business, and the companies he
represents are well known in New
Orleans, and pay losses promptly.
Why don't railroad copora
porations take more women into
their employment ? Most of
them know how to manage trains,
they can handle switches very
carefully, there is less color blind
ness among them than among
men—and occasionally one id
found who can ' fire up" beauti
flly.
The Princess Louise waa
thirty-three years old last week.
This is one of penalties of being
a royal personage and having
your pedigree recorded. Other
English women born within three
months of Louise are now only
twenty -sis.
The editor of the Patriot-Dem
ocrat says the Suuday whisky
law works like a charm in Clin
ton. "The boys" are very
thoughtful and provident, and on
Saturday evening tbey fill thei r
jugs for Sunday purposes.
It is said that the word "Get 1"
is one of the most expressive in
the English language. It is,
when it is emphasized by a boot
toe.
