Facts and Reason.
Nearly everyone in C larendon County knows that the well-known estab
lishmnent of J. L. McLeod, which was formerly managed by S. I. Till, one of
the shrewdest buyers in the State. failed recently, and the goods in the store
occupied by McLeod was ordered sold by the United States Bankrupt Court..
After some difficult maneuvering of one of our buyers,we have-succeededto
buy this stock for forty cents (40c.) on' the dollar of its first cost at the factories
less freight. And considering that the goods is .now worth from 15 to 25 per
cent. 'more than when tbey were bought, on account of advances in lines for the
last 10 months, we consider that the goods cost us about 29 3-16c. on the dollar,
which enables us to sell these goods at from 40c. to 50c. on the dollar of its
original cost and then make. a good profit.
Meanwhile we have bought several lines of DRUMMER samples at from
35c. to 66c. on the dollar. As you know the drummers generally carry the best.
they have as samples, and goods of the very latest output. of the mills you will
readily see what we have for you' in the line of bargains.
In addition to this, our buyer at New York secured several large jobs in
New York SALVAGE houses which'will also be put on bargain counters in
All these goods assembled under one roof, bought nnder snch favorable
circumstances, places us in possession of one of the finest assortments of de
pendable merchandise, which enables us to compete and undersell the manu
facturers of the same goods by large margins.
Now there would be no necessity for us to sacrifice these goods by con
ducting a sale, as some of the merchants here have offered us good profits on
our purchase, but as we have taken the stock with the understanding that we
keep the store for a short time. and as money in the country is rathe~r scarce
this time of the year, we have concluded to. conduct this sale for 19 days and
give our customers the benefit of these bargains instead of some merchant.
Then too, you understand we are here in business and this sale will give us a -
chance to advertise ourselves and get acquainted with the best people of the
community, for we know that the best people of this county know a good thing
when they see it and when they see what we have for them they will be ourI
Advertising costs us lots of money, and we figure that this sale which will'
cost us nearly $1,000 by selling goods so much cheaper. will be the best in
