FOXVGpDPA He Does the Handsome Thing By Newly-weds. THEY COME TO CONWAY AND FIT THEMSELVES OUT FOR HOUSEKEEPING — GRANDPA GIVES THEM THE BENEFIT OF HIS EXPERIENCE AND FOOTS THE BILLS. “Miss Summers, Polly I—er—dare I?” but the speaker took a header over bashfulness only to hear a sweet, “Yes, Charley.” “Can I aspire to-—er to—that is—” Again a lapse into silence followed by an encouraging: “Yes, Charley.” “Oh, if I might only hope to—er— to—” Another failure of language. It was seemingly a hopeless case, and it might have been only for a demure: “Charley I have said yes twice. If you mean it I mean it, too, and—’ And to this day that young man in sists that he popped the question. All this happened away down east. It wasn’t long before there was a wedding, not much longer before there came a letter from Polly’s Foxy Grandpa out in Faulkner county, who wrote effusively of what he called her exhibition of grit and proposed if the young couple would locate at Conway he would start them in life as a wed ding gift. Of course they accepted and were soon bidding their friends adieu. A few weeks subsequent to the above a travel-stained party arrived in Con way. Our friend, Foxy Grandpa was in charge and led them straightway to the Hotel de Hines. “After breakfast,” remarked Foxy Grandpa, “we will go out and buy your outfit and to expedite matters we will order a rig of Gray & Gray’s Livery, Feed and Sale Stable. The carriage arrives, and as Polly views the stylish turnout with fine horses and a neatly dressed driver at the reins she expressed her delight. “This stable,” said he, is one of the best outfitted in this vicinity, and its three S’s, Speed, Safety, Style, are its slogans, and they know the roads. They do transferring and look after Mr. Drummer to a T. If you ever want to run to an of railroad town or on pleasure bent be sure to go to Gray & Gray for a rig.” “The basis of a home,” continued Foxy Grandpa, as they entered the carriage, “is a bit of mother earth. Therefore we will lose no time in calling at Bahner & Co.’s Real Estate office. They control city property that is very desirable and always have excellent bargains on hand. It is worth your while to know them, for if you ever want to buy, rent or sell property, they are the men to call on, as what they tell you can be set down as solid facts.” The visit resulted in interesting Charles in some very de sirable city property and an engage ment for a drive into the country to view some farm lands in which they offer some veritable bargains. “Its better to be safe than sorry, and you will be on the safe side if you have Bahner & Co. make the ab stract of title of your property and when the home is complete we will have them insure the whole in one of their first class companies.” “The next thing is the lumber nec essary in building the new house on the lot you bought,” said Grandpa, “so come with me and I’ll introduce you to J. J. Heigel, who is the prin cipal dealer in that line here. He carries the most complete line of building material in this section. Everything from the sills for the foundation to the shingles for the roof, including lime, brick, cement, sash, doors, mill work, paints, oils, etc. He can also supply you with all kinds of interior decorations at most reasonable figures.” “The necessary material being pur chased,” continued Foxy Grandpa, “we must now figure with a reliable contractor to build the home, and S. J. Lea is the man to figure with. Honest workmanship and material are essential in building. You will find him using both and employing first-class workmen who know their business and exercise it. He does con tracting in its different branches, in cluding interior work, shelving, etc., and will give you a turn-key job. | When he takes a contract he pushes | it through to completion without de lay and you will be more than pleased with you new home when turned over to you from his hands.” “Now you know that no home is complete in this community without a bath room,” said Grandpa, “there fore we will lose no time in calling on S. W. Loveland and make arrange ments with him for installing one in the new home with all appurtenances and strictly sanitary plumbing. When I say sanitary I mean it,” said Grandpa, “and the jobs he has finish ed speak for themselves. He is al ways ready to give you estimates as well as the benefit of his experience in the selection of all classes of work and his judgment can be relied upon. You will want your new home heated by steam and he is there with the goods in this line also. He runs a general fix-it shop—fixes things right and don’t charge a fortune for it, either.” “The new home being complete,” added Grandpa, “we must now look to the furnishing for it. Hereupon Polly declared she heard so much of W. W. Westmoreland’s Furniture Store that she desired to go there. The result was they were ushered in to such a fine display that the girl was puzzled at first how to select, but she soon yielded to the seductiveness of a magnificent parlor suit, a bed room suit in oak, golden finish. To these she added brass, iron and fold ing beds, pictures and wall ornaments, rugs, mattings, linoleums, and art squares. She purchased a swell buffet, fancy rockers, kitchen cabinet, not forgetting an ornamental writing desk for hubby. Coming to the con clusion that W. W. Westmoreland’s prices were below the very whisper of competition, especially the mail order competition. ,/ . __J ” ooirl flvnnH n pici-tj - -7 - pa, “and now we will visit Frauenthal & Schwarz’ big hardware and stove department where Polly’s housewifely instincts will have full sway in the marvels of kitchen apparatus. There is not a more comprehensive stock of cooking machinery in this section, said he. “Every possible piece of kitchen furniture, from a tin dipper to a cooking stove and range is here in all styles and variety,’ and Polly was not long in selecting a Wetter stove, both cooking and heating. She added a complete line of granite enamelware, tinware and table cut lery, and then all three inspected the fine points in implements, parts, etc., and on leaving declared they had been treated right at Frauenthal & Schwarz, just as they treat every body r+ the big store. At the grocery Foxy Grandpa wax ed philosophical. You cannot live on love alone,” said he, “so never neglect your larder. That important adjunct of housekeeping controls the mascu line temper, therefore you must pat ronize a grocer on whom you can de pend for honest goods. For some time I have found L. M. Kinsey per fectly reliable. You are sure to find a careful dealer, always full-stocked with everything in staple and fancy groceries, fresh and first-class, in cluding such well-known articles as Ida Home flour, Johnson Lane Steel Cut coffee, Heinz, Libby and Williams pickles, catsups, etc., together with fresh fruits and vegetables. You will find no shelf-worn goods at this store, in fact its the up-to-the-minute gro cery, quick delivery. Phone 89, theie Johnny on the spot and prices down to brass tacks.” “Next is the bakery goods, saia Grandpa, “and when you want the right kind you will do well to pat ronize Caspar’s City Bakery, Caspar Dum, proprietor. He makes the best bread on the market, fresh and first class daily, and his pies, cakes, pastry, etc., are top notchers. He also fills any special order promptly for wed dings, birthday banquet or other functions. He handles a fine line of candies, chocolates, cigars, tobaccos, etc., and I’d advise you to get the City Bakery goods every time.’’ “While we are in this important topic of gastronomies,” continued Foxy Grandpa, “we must not forget meat. It goes hand in hand with bread, and the next thing to locate is a good market where you can get fresh, pure and wholesome meat, home-rendered lard, sausage, etc., and my friend E. Erbacher, is the man to supply you. The reason for this is because he buys and kills the best of everything and keeps it fresh in cold storage. You will find packing house products here, such a= hams, bacon, #tc., and will always treat you right. So to keep your hubby in good humor, Polly, trade at E. Erbacher’s meat, market every time, good advice.” “And say, Grandpa, exclaimed Polly, “Where will I go for dry goods? This dress of mine is hardly suitable, I must admit.” “Well my girl, if you want to select from one of the finest stocks of first class dry goods in this section, I will direct you to S. G. Smith, who carries a line of dress goods, nobby belts, trimmings, and ready-to-wear that for variety and real value are se dom seen outside of large metropolitan cities. He carries the latest weaves in fashionable dress goods and a fine line of general dry goods and you are sure to be guided right in your select.ons. Goods guar anteed or money refunded. You will find this firm pleasant to deal with and the employes polite and expert, while as to prices—well, S. G. Smith is never undersold.” “Well, scat, my boy,” said Foxy Grandpa with a David Harum accent, as they reached the sti’eet. “I must run across to the Farmers State Bank and get another check-book. Come along and get acquainted with S. G. Smith, president, Wiley Mosley, vice president, Frank Farris, cashier, and Howard Johnston and Herbert Maddox, assistant cashiers, for of course you will do business with them and it is always more pleasant to be personally acquainted with the offi cers with whom you come in touch.” The fine fixtures and metropolitan air of this institution, Grandpa remark ing that this bank was managed on safe, conservative lines and had a strong working capital, you will find them ever ready to extend any ac commodations compatible with busi ness principles and will sell you a bank draft cheaper than any way of sending money, more convenient, no red tape and absolutely safe. “Guess I'll open an account with the Farmers State Bank at once,” said Charles to Grandna”—and he did. At this point somewhat to Charles’ confusion the old gentleman indulged in a half serious criticism of his per sonal appearance. “You are decided ly off style for a townsman,” said he, “and we’d better run down to V. G. Craig’s, the home of good clothes, where you’re suit is always ready.” After Charles had fitted himself out in a neat, late style business suit, the good clothes kind, Grandpa declared on donning same he would certainly look like a newly married man and that us Arkansawans can show you how to tone up a bit. Having found such a large assortment of furnish ings here at such low prices, Charles invested in a No Name Hat, a com plete supply of Wilson Bros, swell* furnishings, shirts, ties, collars, hos iery, Cooper underwear, etc., and added trunks and grips for both, not forgetting the fine stock of men’s shoes of leading lines. Goods are up to-now and prices are always down at V. G. Craig’s. “Halt,” commanded Foxy Grandpa as the party came in front of Gree son Drug Co. Walk right in.” “Why, Grandpa, we're not sick and—” “I guess I know that,” laughed he, “but I suspect it won’t be long before this young man begins to take an inter est in matters of paregoric and—” “G-r-an-d-p-a.” “Well, go in any way, as Polly may find some toilet articles she wants.” Sure enough the girl was soon loaded down with combs, brushes, face powders and sev eral bottles of fine perfumes. Re member their soda fountain is a model of neatness, always kept so, all the latest drinks are properly served, both hot and cold, and with pure fruit juices, by Happy Donnell, the ladies’ man of this establishment. Don’t forget to come here witn your pre scriptions, as you will find none but registered pharmacists at Greeson Drug Co. using the purest of drugs.” “Let's see, I promised you a gold watch, didn’t I?” queried Grandpa of Polly. “Well, the place of all places is C. H. Robinette’s.” Entering the popular jewelery Grandpa gallantly acquitted himself of his promise by presenting Polly with a handsome timepiece and then directed her at tention to the superior stock of jewel ry, silverware, fancy china, novelties, etc., and advised her to buy her fam ily clock here. “Don’t forget another fact, if you ever need optical goods he carries a most complete stock, everything necessary to improve af flicted eyes and to determine their re quired treatment. ou will also find three expert doctors on sick watches here. They can diagnose any old case and make an old dyspeptic timepiece look and act like new, and they are right up-to-now on their work.” “If there is one thing above another that you young folks are particular about it is your footwear,” said Grandpa, “and the place for particu lar people to have their wants antici pated is at S. G. Smith’s big Shoe department. They have the shoes here to fit your feet, your fancy and your finances,” said he, “and as to wear—well, your grandma andl have tried 'em, and we will guarantee their lasting qualities.” Polly was not long in selecting a handsome walking boot of American Lady, Charley a footform last of American Gentle man, and while Polly was casting shy glances at the Security brand for the little tot, Grandpa purchased a pair of stout boots with rubbers for the crowd. No one needing footwear or almost anything else to wear can re sist the styles and prices at S. G. Smith’s. “And where will I find the leading ROBINETTE'S WATCHES Are the Standard to which all others are compared WHY? A Watch pnuchased from Ccbinette has been thorough ly timed and regulated before sale. The result is that every watch is in perfect condition when it leaves iny store, and the annoyance of regulating and adjnsting is saved my customers. Call in and see my line watches before you buy. C. H. ROBINETTE Jeweler and Optician milliiner?” asked Polly. “Well, my girl, if you want the real thing in this line,” said Grandpa, “we will visit Mrs. Nettie F. Hoss at 20G Watkins street, corner of College, who, by the way, has on hand the smartest dress, pattern, street, picture pats, and Par isian models in this community. The latest styles and lowest prices being her motto. She has that experience which guarantees when you have once purchased of her you have the proper thing at lowest cost.” And a few minutes later there wasn’t a happier lady than Polly in the proud posses sion of a tony effect of Mrs. Hoss’ own creation. “There’s an old saying that the clothes don t make the man, ’ said Grandpa. “They may not, but they help, and if you take your clothes to Price’s Pressing Parlor for treatment htey’ll help mightily. He does all kinds of cleaning, pressing, altering, repairing, dyeing, etc., and when he turns out clothes they have that snap to ’em which makes a man who wears them feel that he is well dressed. And then, too, he takes pride in his work and his prices are consistent with the very best work that can be turned out.” As the young folks were undecided what to go into to make a living in Conway they were prevailed upon by Grandpa to go to farmii “Now, naturally, in this community, you will raise cotton,” said he, “and will want it ginned and at all times I want you to take it to my old friend R. B. Mc Culloch at his four stand, well equip ped gin here. He has the only cotton cleaner in the county, gins your cot ton right, with a fine sample and very little waiting. He will also buy your seed and pay top prices. You will also want ice and he can supply you with the purest of crystal ice, made from distilled water, in any quantity, from a five-cent piece up, delivered. He runs a grist mill also and does custom grinding. Take it all around he runs a mighty handy institution here and gives all a square deal.” “As you are going to keep a horse you will want a harness,” said Grand pa, “and the boss horse milliners and mule jewelers in this section are Bolls Brothers. They are expert workmen and give personal supervision to the minutest detail of manufacture. There isn’t a thing in this line that cannot be had of them, heavy and light, single and double, plain and fancy work and buggy harness, they have them in stock and make ’em to order. They also carry a good stock of saddles, whips, flynets, lap robes, in fact any thing a farmer or a gentleman horse owner could possibly desire and at right prices. They do all kinds of shoe repairing, run the bicycle shop in connection and fix anything in lines to a nicety.” “I know you are particular about that mare Kitty,” said Grandpa, “so I’d advice you to take her to W. M. Guy and have her shod. He under stands perfectly the anatomy of a horse’s foot, just what kind of a shoe is needed and how to make and put it on. In fact he is a horse-shoeing specialist, treats all diseases of the feet, cures corns, quarters, toe cracks, will balance gait, cure faulty action and avoid friction on most ocrintipic and up-to-now principles.” “While here I want you to get ac quainted with Dr. H. P. Gannaway, the veterinary surgeon who has his office here. He is the man who will give you expert advice on anything in the veterinary line, and if your horse needs a doctor in his line he w'ill tell you, if not he will do the same, and his 42 years’ experience enables him to satisfy you. So remember Dr. Gannaway every time if your horse is in trouble.” At this point Polly began to think seriously of her household duties and remarked, “Grandpa, I am not going to kill myself over the washtub, so tell me of a good laundry. Here was a good chance to recommend Conway Steam Laundry, Brown & Phillips, proprietors. They pride themselves on being able to satisfy the most par ticular customer in ladies’ and gen tlemen’s fine laundry and promptness is their motto. They look after and repair all laundry work, and do all kinds of clothes cleaning, pressing and repairing, etc. Prices are always right at Conway Steam Laundry.” “We will now visit an institution that does as much to advertise Con way as any establishment in it,” said Grandpa, “and that’s the Conway Bottling Works. You will find Con way on every bottle and box sent out and the goods contained therein are a credit to any firm and popular with a host of pleased customers. Their special drink, ‘Gay-Ola’, is a winner an dit, as well as their sodas and phosphates are sold extensively throughout this section. As only the purest of water and syrups are used they cannot help but please. Call for and insist on getting Conway Bottling Works products. You’ll get the best every time.” “A home without music is certainly a barren estate,” said Grandpa, “and as I promised you a piano as a wed ding present we will lose no time in calling upon S. E. Anderson, where I will certainly make good by present ing you with a Janssen make, one of the best instruments on the market today, and for tone, beauty and ac curacy in construction cannot be beat, and as to price, well, I don’t need to mention it, but it’s certainly low for such a fine instrument. You can get all different kinds of musical instru ments, sheet music, holiday novelties, etc., here, and books that are classy and of almost any strain. Now, noth ing makes a home cozier or neater than to have it neatly decorated,” added Grandpa, “and if you want your home artistically finished on the inside don’t leave here until you have Mr. Anderson show you his fine stock of wall paper. I'll leave it to you and him,” said he, “I know you’ll buy as prices are always right at S. E. Anderson’s.” “Personal knowledge is the winning factor in the culminating contests of this competitive age,” said Grandpa, “and when of ample character it places its fortunate possessor in the front ranks of the well informed. The knowledge of wagons and buggies possessed by S. G. Smith has enabled him to select the leaders in both lines in his big stock for your inspection. They are the Luedinghaus wagon that always gets there, and the Banner buggy, that I know Polly will be proud to come to town in. Don’t get the habit of buying from transient and outside parties. You get an in ferior article and you pay in most cases an exorbitant price. When you buy of S. G. Smith you buy from a reliable home dealer, who has your interests at heart and gives you a strict guarantee or your money back.” “Now,” said the old gentleman, “now for a picture of this crowd and a view of the new home. In good old country fashion we will visit Jack Barnes’ studio. His pictures are won derful in fidelity and finish. I want a full sized photo for my study and some smaller ones for my friends. He makes crack-a-jack pictures and pose and light are his long suits. He is famous for successful enlarging and I want to give you a life-sized repre sentation of yours truly. He has the soul of the true artist, does develop inj?, kodak finishing and post card work, and will not stop short of per fection in any of his work.” Enroute home the gentlemen stop ped at the Log Cabin Democrat and left the wherewithal for a years’ sub scription. On rejoining Polly she be gan to volubly express her thanks. This is indeed a happy event and one we never can forget. You have bought us everything,” she exclaimed. “Ex cept one thing,” said Grandpa, “but I have remedied that by leaving the order on the sly with my friend W. W. Westmoreland. You can get it whenever you want it. I’ll guaran tee its the best in Arkansas” “Why, what can it be?” exclaimed Polly. “A handsome, rubber-tired, collapsi ble go-cart,” said Foxy Grandpa. —But Polly had fainted.
