AT THE JENKI
It is a well known fact to everybody who keeps ul with the cot
k ton market that cotton has gone up sharply in the last two months
and when cotton advances it follows that all cotton goods must ad
vance. but we have had an eye to such turns in the market and have
protected ourselves by buying all of our staple stuff in December be
One case of splendid Yard-Wide Bleached Homespun, something well worth 7c the yard. but
we let it.go during this sale at 5c yard.
One case-of very fine quality Bleached Homespun. well worth loc. but we let it go during this
sale at 74c the yard. We defy you to get a yard-wide Bleach as good for less than 8?c the yard, but
you get it from us at 7-jc, the result of early buying.
.000 yards of Yard-Wide Sea Island Homespun, well worth Gc, but you get it at the old
price, only 5c the yard.
2,000 yards of Heavy Drill Homespun at 6-c the yard, the kind that is sold everywhere at 8c,
just see what you save.
One case of Prints, beautiful Spring Styles, only 31c the yard.
One case of the famous Sea Island and Windsor Percales. one yard wide, only 10c the yard:
these goods cost on the wholesale market now more than we ask for them: we are only able to do
this by placing our orders early.
Our line of Shirtings, Cottonades. Blue Denims and Sheetings is the largest and cheapest in
One hundred Ready-Made Bed Sheets, Bleached, at 63c each, or 1.25 per pair. The best
I Bleached Sheetings for 25c the yard.
Wash Goods and White Goods.
Never before have we been able to offer such values in White Goods and Wash Goods as we
are offering during this sale. How is this:
One thousand yards White Lawns, only 3ic the yard.
The greatest line of White India Lawns eve shown on this market at 10c, 121c, 17e, 20c and
25c the vard.
We defy the whole country to show a line of White. Dimities to equal the line we are offering
at 10c and 12-. We know we have a line of White Goods that competition cannot meet.
2.500 yards of Colored and Figured Dimities. Lawns and Batiste, in ali of the new styles and
colorings, at 10c the yard. We know these goods cannot be bought elsewhere for less than 121c.
Just think of this, a large lot of Challies, in beautiful styles, the kind that always sold at 6e.
, but we sell you what you want at 4c the y'ard.
One case of Scotch Lawns at 3ic the yard.
All kinds of Wash Goods, Ginghams and Chambrays to be found in a first class stock, at the
lowest possible prices.
Black Dress Goods and Silks.
To say that we carry the largest and best stock of Black Dress Goods and Silks in Clarendon
county sounds a little egotistic. but we leave it to the public to judge for themselves. In our stock
will be found the latest things in the market for making Black Skirts and im our line of Silks
will be found the latest things for stylish Waists. Corded Taffetas are the rage everywhere for
making stylish Ladies' Waists.
In short, our line of Dress Goods and Silks is the largest we have ever shown at this season
of the year and the way the ladies are buying them shows that prices and styles are right.

Choose Your Occupation
In life and stick to it.: let nothing deviate you from the pursuit you have in
tended to pursue, for any young man with ordinary aihility can succeed at what-:
ever he wills to do if he will only stick to it and just remember that old familiar:
proverb. "If once or twice you don't succeed, try, try again."
Early in life when a small lad I decided to follo y the mercantile business.
Mv first step was to acquire a common education: this was no easy task. being
Fwithout friends or money. and in those days there were no public schools in the
country to amount to anything. but this obstacle was overcome. The present
Senator from Sumter county, Hon. R. I. Manning. gave me employment and I
worked a~nd saved up my earnmngs during the winter months and attended school
in Manning, then taught by Mi-. S. A. Nettles. and in my great desire to acquire
knowledge, I attracted the attention and admiration of my teacher,-Mr. Nettles,
who has ever after been a lifelong fiend to me. Thbus my life work was begun.
By straightforward methods in all of our dealings we feel that we enjoy the*
confidence of our many friends and patrons, and by hard work and close atten
tion to basiness we have built up and now enjoy the largest dry goods trade in

fore cotton went up and the result is we are able to offer many lines
of goods cheaper than our competitors can buy them and we do not
say this simply to be saying something, but we are ready to back up
our assertion by naming the following low prices for the NEXT 30
DAYS FOR THE SPOT CASH.

this fact we buy the latest styles in everything; old, out-of-date millinery is dear at any price. At
our store you get nothing but the best and the latest, as we only buy from the most reliable houses
in New York and Baltimore.

Gent's Furnishings and Clothing.
It was our intention to retire from the Clothing trade, but the first of the year found us with
such a large stock of Clothing on hand that we were compelled to continue to add a new Spring line.
This we have done and now have one of the most complete lines of Gent's, Children's and Youths'
Clothing to be found in this town.
Come and see our new Spring Suits, we are sure to save you money.
