Quite a number of very compli
mentary notices referring to the
Creamery Bulletin of the Agricul

has a line little steam engine to run

work and proves to be a great labor

An intelligent and progressive
farmer from Monongalia informs us
that there is quite a tendency over
there to raise fewer cattle and more
horses, the profit on the latter prov
ing more remunerative; and more es
pecially since the breeds are being
improved by the admixture of the
blood of the Norman and Clydesdale
breeds.—Kingtoood Era.
Fire was discovered in the chim
ney of Watts & Protzman’s Marble
Works Sunday night, the blaze leap
ing out in a big volume. The gas
had been turned on too high in the
stove and the soot had ignited. It
was turned down and no damage
done. Persons would do well to have
their chimneys cleaned of soot. It
makes less danger of fire.
Whiskey matters have taken an
other serious quirk and turn at Fair
moot, in so much that no licenses will
be granted till after the June session
of the County Court and even then
it is likely that there will be a fail
ure to connect. It seems that the
people of the Mountain City will con
tinue to wet their whistles with the
ardent that is sold no place, but is
always plenty.
During all the time that Mayor
Fast has been in office he has never
retained a cent of costs and never
received a cent for fees. Don’t look
like he could be charged with taking
the great interest in the town that
he has taken for the consideration of
what money there is in the office.
He had a right to make some money
out of the office, but the fact stands
that he hasn’t.
In another column appears the ad
vertisement of the Washington Life
Insurance Company, of New York.
The company is represented here by
Mr. Chas. E. Jolliffe who has been
appointed a speciai agent by Mr. C.
B. Briscoe, who is the general agent
for this State. The Washington is
an old company and one of the solid
cst in the country. Prof. Purinton,
we learn, has been insured in this
company for over 20 years.
The County Court of Marion coun
ty is a progressive body. Last week
the State transferred its interests
iu the suspension bridge at Fair
mont with the proviso that the coun
ty purchase the remaining shares of
stock that were held by individuals
The court after due deliberation de
cided that in making the purchase
the best interests of the county
would be consulted, and acting on
that decision made an order to that
effect at the recent session. This
makes the Fairmont bridge free and
the people are all happy.
The Morgantown correspondent
of the Wheeling Register Saturday,
says: Contrary to some reports in
many of the State papers, regarding
the Mt. Morris oil field, I to-day re
ceived from very reliable authority
the information that the supply is
constantly decreasing, the wells there
only flowing from 500 to 600 barrels
per day against 1,000 to 1,200 bar
rels a few weeks since. The same
ratio compares to the shipments
from this place, now only about sev
en cars per day being shipped
against eleven and twelve a short
time since.
jAsreu Jones, who last week was
arrested nearMt. Morrison a charge
of murder, preferred by Kentucky
parties, where the murder occurred
about a year ago, has returned, he
proving to be not the man wanted.
He was arrested by Detective
Gothrop, of Clarksburg, who was af
ter the murderer, whose name was
Gum. Jones answered the descrip
tion and was taken to Kentucky by
the detective, though all the time
protesting his innocence. It did not
take long after his arrival for all to
see that Jones was not Gum and he
was released, arriving here Tuesday
day. He works on the tramway in
this county near Mt. Morris and is
an honest citizen and a good work
er. We are glad to see him cleared.
Wiiat has become of the Chamber
of Commerce? As we understood it
that honorable body was to report
publicly the advance they had made
in corresponding, advertising, sccur
ing locations, et cetera, at an early
day after their appointment. We
know that a good deal of work has
been done by the members, but as to
what satisfactory ends accomplished
still remains a mystery, i.nd so far
as the public at large is concerned
no knowledge at all of their move
ments has been made known. We
would suggest that the chairman
call a meeting of the chamber for
to-morrow evening and let the com
mittees’ reports be read for the edifl
/ cation of the masses. It is not our in
tention to in any manner upbraid
the Chamber of Commerce, but we
can with truth say that if care is not
taken the boom enthusiasm mani
fested at their organization will die
if knowledge of their progress is not
made to those whose interests would
he consulted by knowing. Let’s
have the meeting Thursday evening
nod keep the lyul rolling.

University. It will contain accounts

Accident to W. L. Jacobs.
Last week Mr. W. L. Jacobs, of
the Indianapolis Millstone, formerly
of this paper, mashed two lingers of
his right hand in doing some work
about the press in his office. It is
thought that one of the fingers can
be saved, though it will be necessary
to amputate the third finger. Will
is one of the best printers in the
country and we hope his accident
will not permanently disable him
from work.
Morgantown Progressing.
Prof. W. P. Willey, of the State
University at Morgantown, was in
the city for a brief visit yesterday
afternoon, on route to Wellsburg,
where he lectured last night. Prof.
Willey says Morgantown is experi
encing quite a boom, which has
been much accelerated by the intro
duction of natural gas. A water
works is in process of erection, which
will distribute an ample supply of
pure spring water through the town.
With natural gas, pure water, pure
air, fine scenery and ample facilities
for business, Prof. Willey thinks the
future of the University town is as
sured.— Wheeling Register.
Closing Oat Sale.
Mr. S. Hitchens has determined to
close hit mercantile business in Mor
gantown and offers the entire stock
of goods now in the store at coat for
caah. The stoek is full and rare
bargains are offered. Such oppor
tunities to buy at low figures are
seldom Had. Among the stock will
be found excellent dress goods, a
big line of gentlemen’s and ladies’
shoes, ginghams, prints, shirtings,
table linens, towelings, hosiery, neck
wear. &c. Among other items there
is a line of tea reduced from 80 to 60
cents, another excellent brand at
40 cents, and scores of other things.
Go and inquire for what you want.
The Best and Cheapest Marble Works.
The little flurry caused by the fire
a few evenings ago has only stimu
lated trade at the marble works of
J. E. Watts <fc Co. In fact the fire
was caused by a rush of business.
We may add that this popular firm
is now filling orders faster than ever
and they court competition from the
agents of firms doing business ih
distant cities. They are always
willing to have their work examined
by competent judges and compared
with that bought in the cast.
A number of finejobs aVe now being
completed that are as handsome as
were ever seen here and the prices
arc 25 to 33 per cent less than oth
ers ask for the same goods. Both
members of the firm may always be
found at the works on Pleaeant
street when Milt’s time is not re
quired in looking after his farm.
Orange Blossoms.
Next'Wednesday two of Fairmont's
popular young people will be joined
in holy wedlock, namely: Mr. James
E. McCoy and and Miss Hallie K.
Hall both of whom are well and favor
ably known here. Misss Hall has
been a reigning belle of the Moun
tain City for the past few seasons
and many young men from here have
been captivated by her beauty, ac
complishments and gracious and am
iable manners. Mr. McCoy in on the
Index staff and is a young man
who has before him a bright future,
which will in nowise bedimmed but
greatly intensified and made more
auspicious by his marriage with his
brilliant affianced. We extend hear
ty congratulations to the young
couple. May all the joys that
heaven can bestow be theii s and
their pathway through life be strewn
with most fragrant blossoms.
“Is Marriage a Failure 1”
Some of our young men have taken
the steps toward bringing Mrs. Belva
A. Lockwood here to lecture on the
above popular theme. Mrs. Lock
wood’s reputation as a distinguish
ed orator is well established, and the
audience that will assemble to hear
her at Morgantown is sure to be
large. Saturday night, April 27, is
the date of her appearance here. The
Presbyterian church has been secur
ed for her lecture. She is a woman of
forcible and brilliant intellect, with
a brain well stocked with informa
tion and is a fluent and eloquent
speaker. She is not a woman of one
idea, as some suppose, confined to
woman’s suffrage, but can lecture on
any subject you may desire in a most
convincing and argumentative style
and will greatly benefit and instruct
all who hear her. Don't miss this
opportunity to hear the famous queen
of the American bar'. Tickets will
be sold at the low price of 50 cents
“Uncle Jack.”
Last Thursday night a good sized
audience assembled at Academy
Hall to witness the production of
“Uncle Jack; or Testing Hearts,”
which was gWen under the auspices
of the young ladies of the Presby
terian church. Messrs. H. G. Stoetz
er, A. B. Smith, J. E. Peck and
Misses Mary Casselberry, Madge
Brown, Bessie Murphy, Edna Hough
and several children constituted the
dramatis person®. It is a comedy^
in three acts, representing many dif
ferent phases and circumstances in
life, with a great moral and warning
to those putting a money value on
everything, character and esteem
included. The selection of partici
pants was good, each doing his
particular role in approved style, in
fact the acting of all was very com
mendable and at many times the ap
plause was most vociferous and en
thusiatie. The stage was probably
arranged in better style than ever
was known before, which proved to
be an attractive acquisition to the
entertainment. After the conclu
sion of the comedy a one act farce,
entitled “A Pretty Piece of Busi
ness,” was given, participated in by
J. B. Clark, A. L. Thayer and Misses
Edna Hough, Mary Dille and Nettie
Nye. It was a success and produc
ed ro*r after roar of laughter.
About $60 was cleared, which was
presented to the church. It had
been a long time since “home talent”
had done anything on the stage and
the talent displayed on this occasion
was highly appreciated by the de
lighted audience.

CM the Wrong Bsttie.
Last Saturday Mrs. Marshall
Crow, who was slightly uu well at the
time, got down a bottle from a shelf
and took a dose of what she presum
ed was her medicine but what prov
;ed to be laudanum. She was at
: tacked with very painful feelings al
! most instantly, and in a short time
| read the label on the bottle, 'thus
showing her the mistake she had
; made. She had the presence of
i mind to send for a physician who
j administered the proper antidotes
| and caused the poison to be emitted
I from the stomach, and she was pro
i nounced out of danger. The lady’s
j system was considerably shattered
from her strong doses and she was
quite sick for several days. She is
able to sit up now.

Monday at noon A. C. Jlagruder
and Miss Irene Myers returned from
a horseback ride, and stopping at
Prof. Myers’ they were importuned
by Kalph Davis and Fannie Berke
ley to take the horses to the livery
stable. The little people mounted
and when near Dr. Casselberry’s res
idence the horses started off in a trot.
This seemed to scare the riders and
both let go the reins and held to their
saddles, the horses increasing their
speed and when passing the Wallace
house were tearing^ down street as
hard as they could go. Arriving at
the Court house the horses got on
the pavement to make a near cut
down the alley to Carraco’s stable
and in turning the corner, miracu
lous as it is, both the youthful riders
were tumbled on the sand pile there,
neither, fortunately, being touch
hurl. Fannie rolled out of the sand
pile into the gutter aud about the
only injury Bhe sustained was from
being well plastered with mud.
Ralph got up and walked home. It
is fortunate that the fall was where
it happened.
nnter Works Items.
The preliminary line from the
springs to Morgantown shows the
distance to be C miles and 50 feet
long, which is completed. Prof.
Jackson is now making a complete
plat of the line, after the completion
of which work at grading will begin.
It is thought that by May 1 this
work will commence.
The plan for the mains in town is
the next work for the engineers.
Perfect specifications have not as
yet been given out as to depth of
tre»ches, size of pipe, location of
plugs, &c., but the surface, lines will
be run this week.
The lower end of Prof. Myers’
lawn is just 270 feet lower than the
springs, thus insuring a strong
hydraulic pressure for the consum
ers. The points in town higher than
the one mentioned are not so much
so as to make any perceptible differ
ence in the pressure.
Mr. Grant says that by August 1,
not later than September 1, sure, the
water will be running through the
mains here. Heaven help him to
make his words true.
Good Bye, Nate.
On the 4th inst. Mr. N. E. Shaffer
sent in his resignation as Postal
Clerk on the F. M. & P. and Mr.
Harry T. McElfresh, of Marion
county, has been appointed to fill
the place. Mr. Shaffer was tender
ed a position in the B. & O. office at
Wheeling some time ago which he
has accepted and to which he will
go to-day. The salary is about 50
per cent greater than that paid by
the Post Office Department. Mr.
Shaffer asked to be relieved last week
but Superintendent Vickery tele
graphed Postmaster Nye on Friday
to urge him to remain a few days
This of course settles the aspira
tions of a legion of hungry and
thirsty young Rads who were after
Nate’s place. Mr. McElfresh is an
intelligent young gentleman and we
have no doubt will very acceptably
fill his trust.
Nate Shaffer has been on the route
from Fairmont here ever since a mail
system was put on the road and be
sides being a good officer is the best
kind of a fellow and made hosts of
friends at both ends of the line. His
home is at Laurel Point, this county.
We regret to see Nate leave the road,
probably more than he hates to go.
There’s not a man in Morgantown,
no matter what bis politics, who has
a word to say against Nate. He was
kind, courteous, obliging, big-heart
ed and was welcomed in all circles.
Here’s our hand, Nate, and may you
prosper as you so richly deserve.
Mr. McElfresh made his first trip
Onr Morgantown Boys.
“The fact is,” said Prof. Willley,
the other day, “that wherever you
go in this State you»meet a young

“He generally meets you at the
depot and seems to have the keys of
the town and is ready to show you
through. His introduction gives
you the entree to whatever circle of
society you want to meet. He is al
ways respectable, always thrifty and
always on top.
“Why, the other day, I stepped off
the train at Wellsburg. About the
tirst man I saw was Elza Sheets, who
five years ago, left Morgantown a
poor boy and located in Wellsburg
without acquaintances, without capi
tal, and without any help but a good
honest purpose and a willingness to
“Of course he is now a leading
citizen. You need not ask—you dis
cover it on sight. I was told that
he has the leading business in mer
chandizing, that he is a member of
the city council, an influential mem
ber of the leading church, lives in
his own house in first-class style,
and in a greater or less degree runs
the town.
“That’s not surprising,” continued
the Professor, “when you reflect that
he is a Morgantown boy, but it would
be exceptional in any boy from any
other place.
“The fact is that in a few years
more Morgantown, with the aid of
the University, will have sent out
enough young men to take the State.
What they don’t gobble up won’t
be worth having.”

Wm. M. Corcoran left on Friday
for Hot Springs, Ark., where he will
stay for a time for the benefit of his
health, which has been failing for
some weeks, pa9t. For over five
years Mr. Corcoran had been in
Morgantown and by a disposition so
genial and manners so courtly had
made friends here by the score. In
the entire time of his stay here he
had not spent a night outside of his
room at the Wallace house find this
was his first ride over the F., M. &
P. In the event of his health im
proving he will return and make this
his home again, and all wish him a
speedy recovery. His brother, James
W. Corcoran, who had visited him
for several weeks, left also, going to
his plantation at Fairfield, Ark.
From a Washington letter we leorn I
that Prof. A. L. Purinton, a Morgan- j
town boy, anil Superintendent of
Schools at Parkersburg for a mini j
ber of years, is in Washington. He
is now a member of the faculty of
Wakeforrest College, North Carolina.
Mr. Purinton has been known as the
strongest of Republicans, but he is
there to urge the retention in office of
the Democratic postmaster at his
college town. There arc only two
Republicans in the town, one of
whom is the Professor himself. The
other is an applicant for the post
office, but it is claimed that he is
not competent, and the faculty and
citizens of the town have sent Pro
fessor Purinton as the other Repub
lican to Washington to protest
against any charges. It is said that
the present postmaster will remain.

The house of Mr. George Hains,
of near West Warren, W. Va., was
destroyed by fire last Wednesday,
with every article that was in it, in
cluding one hundred and forty dol
lars in cash, notes, books, etc. Even
the coat he wore he threw on the
baluster so he could more successs
fully contend with the fire, and it
was consumed. No insurance. *The .

A couple of Kingwood citizens
have invented a “copy holder,” and
for the convenience of type writers
and others, who copy written or (
printed matter. The copy is insert
ed in the “holder,” and as a line is ,
copied, the sheet containing the mat- ,
ter to be copied is readjusted ,
for the copyisst by simply pressing '
very slightly a lever. Experts who ,
have examined it say there is money j
in it. A Caveat has been filed in
patent office, and a company formed
consisting of H. H. Potter, Ashford
E. Fortney, Neil J. Fortney and Wil- ’
liam G. Brown. They have not yet 1
detirmined whether the will manu- !
facture the “copy holder” themselves.
At a recent session of the council 1
it was proposed to grade the side- 1
walk from Jas. N. Davis’ residence ‘
to the Arab Jane Evans property
down to the street level. This work
should be done in consideration of
the fact that the street has been cut 1
down so much and with the pave- '
ment where it is making it entirely
out of jibe with the street. Just at
Long Alley there are stops up to the 1
pavement and the grading would 1
make the pavement level with the t
one past the new houses on the west <
side of the alley. The Council pro- i
poses to do the work and charge it to I
Miss Evans and Mr. Davis, and it is <
said Miss Evans will sue on account i
of excavating doing damage to the <
foundation of the house. Some agree- i
meat should be arrived at and the <
work done, as no Improvement is so ‘
much needed in town as this one.

make his entrance into society and j
for the giddy young maiden to learn
the art of transforming a simper

some of our most accomplished so

Almost every day 1 hear the ques
tion asked: “Are we going to have
a new court house this summer?” It
takes a good deal to convince people
who talk that way. 1 don’t know
what to say to make them believe it
and I dont care whether they door not
since when they see the old structure
which now pretends to represent a
temple of justice being torn down it
will cause such a pleasurable sur
prise for them. You’ll see it in June
A. D., 1889.
I'm glad that the square issue of
license or no license is to be put be
fore the voters of this town at the
municipal election May 14. It’ll
show a good many things, but most
important of all it will show how
big the majority against licensing
the liquor traffic will be. Our peo
ple (I rejoice to say it) are enthusi
astically against it, or a majority of
them. Prohibition comes so near
prohibiting that since the last ses
sion of the Grand Jury there are not
so many people to be seen beastly,
maudlin drunk. I’m a temperance
man, but I know where the boys used
to get their liquor, just the same.
They don’t get it at the same places
any more, that’s certain and the
docket at the Mayor’s couft is cor
respondingly spare.
I used to be a little boy. They
didn’t have Sunday School Orches
tras at that time, but I'm sure
there’s no objection to the change.
I attended the musical session of the
M. E. Sunday School Orchestra Sun
day afternoon. I tell yon I didn’t
know it was such an elegant and ac
complished organization as it is. It
certainly adds to the attractiveness
of Sunday School. I’m getting too
old to get out so early to go to Sun
day School, but I’m almost tempted
to go to hear the music. All .you
people who don’t go to Sunday
School these days don’t know what
you miss by staying away, many
features outside of the music being
improved from what it was in auld j
lang syne. Go to any Sunday School
in town and I’ll wagel- you'll enjoy
the service.

The flutter of delightful expect
ancy never stirred the emotions of
our girls at the prospect of the Uni
versity opening and thereby catch
ing onto new student beaus as it
does the yearning and tender
thoughts of some of our young men
as the time for the Institute opening
draws nearer and nearer. The boys
look forward to gay times with the
Institute girls. We’ve heard the
boys giving the girls very serious
upbraidings for their preference to
ward the scholastic element. The
girls are not half, no not a quarter
as bad as the boys. It’s all poppy
cock about these preferences. Let
our boys show our girls that they
are the best girls in the world and
follow it up by sticking to them and
then see how things work. We have
nice, good girls, but let a bevy of
blooiping beauties from afar set foot
in town and see how quick the home
girls are forgotten. The girls are
right and the boys are wrong; the
coming session of the Institute will
prove it.

ride well, too. There is not at this
time a single organization of athlet

real pleasure as a bicycle club. One
might be organized here of those who
now have wheels. There are so
many different sporting organiza
tions that the young men have in
other places thaf^ they don’t have
here that I have often wondered that
such is the case. There couldn’t be
a prettier body of water or more con
ducive to nice boating than the river
we have. Why is there not a boat
club, or two or three of them for the
matter of that? And many other -
sorts of clubs could well be conduct
ed here that would afford great and

I talked to a gentleman the other
day who was sad. The cause of his
misery was that he had overtaken
a lady on Main street, with whom
he w^s not acquainted, in a driving
rain, she having no umbrella. He
offered her shelter under his. She
declined the proffer because they
had never formally “met.” He is a
fool for feeling bad over it and she a
bigger one for not getting out of the
rain. Lots of people don’t have
sense enough to get out of the rain.

It don’t seem to me that ladies
here know of the value and health
benefit of walking, that is, long
tramps. It puts roses in withered
cheeks and makes high-heeled shoes
uncomfortable, so that sensible shoes
have to be worn. It is very healthy
exercise and more of it should be
indulged in. Don’t run and get out
of breath. Walk and exercise your
muscles properly. Try it and if it
doos you good tell me, so I can say
“I told you ao.”

Below it am account of the capers
cut at various points in the East by
a fly youug man whose home was
| formerly in this county. His name
is K. W. Hildebrand, instead of Hil
debron as given on his card, one of
which was sent to this office by a
j gentleman from Wilmington. Del.,
j who had suffered from young Hilde
j brand’s sharp practices. He is a
! son of the late Henry Hildebrand
who was quite an honest and respect
able man. It is very much to be re
i gretted that he has brought such re
j proach upon his friends. The story
is clipped from the Wilmington,
i Delaware, Jlepublican of April 9.
: Here it is:
l Some time ago a young man came
to this city and secured board with
Mrs. C. L. Story. No. 703 King street.
He represented himself as belonging
at Morgantown, West Virginia, and
| said that he was a student at the
| West Virginia University. He gave
! his name as VV. E. Hildebron, and
| said that he was an agent for “Pal
! mer's Guide to Muscular Movement
| in PenmaBship.” To all appear
i ances he was “a very nice young
j man," and be formed a number of
acquaintances, among them being
j the Rev. William T. Tull. The lat
' ter is the agent for the book entitled
“Why Priests Should Wed," and as
Hildebron expressed a desire to be
come a sub-agent, and exhibited let
ters of recommendation from several
prominent men, Mr. Tull concluded
to let him have a stock of the books.
Hildebron left here Saturday,
March 9tb, and a few days later Mr.
Tull sent him $30 worth of books.
He afterwards commenced to get an
inkling of the fellow's true charac
ter, and upon learning that he owed
Mrs. Storey $20 and Dr. Smith $/),
made an ineffectual attempt to re
cover his books. Upon pursuing his
investigations Mr. Tull found that
when Hildebron reached Philadel
phia he secured board, through rec
ommendation from the Y. M. C. A.,
at Sirs. L. J. Kunitz's, No. 222
North Thirteenth street, but after
remaining there two weeks at $5 a
week suddenly decamped without
paying his bill. Prom Philadelphia
Mr. Tull traced him to West Ches
ter, where he obtained board with
Mrs. J. Lear on Saturday, March
23d. While he was in that town
Mr. Tull wrote to the chief of |>olice.
who replied that he saw him every
day and that Mr. Tull could get him
by coming there. Hildebron re
mained in West Chester about one
week, and then left as suddenly as
he came, and as usual forgot to pay
his board bill, which amounted to
$10. He also took the key of a ward
robe along with him.
This was last Saturday, and yes
terday Mr. Tull learned that he is,
or was at that time, in Philadelphia,
but it is scarcely probable that ho
will remain there long.
Mr. Tull wrote to the President of
the West Virginia University, and
has received a reply, stating that he
does not know the man, and is posi
tive that he was never a student at
that institution. While in this city
lie tried to obtain a suit of clothes
from P. J. Walsh A Co., but was un
successful. Hildebron is about 22
years of ago, 5 feet 9V inches in
height, light complexion, and has an
impediment in his speech. While
in this city he wore light clothes,
but did not wear an overcoat.
University Notes.
By our Regular Reporter.
There iB talk of terracing the river
front of the campus. This would all
be very nice, but it would seem more
consistent to keep the briars cut off
tbe entire lot, and the grounds about
the building better cared for. Some
body is either in the wrong place or
not in the right place.
Prof Myers is displaying some
aesthetic taste in the arrangement of
the new building and its appurten
Tbe Sophs, made a move in the
right direction Saturday evening, by
organizing. Wo have not learned
who has the honor to be called the
first president of the Sophomore
class of the W. V. U., but congratu
late him and the class in this sensi
ble and college-like enterprize. We
have beard of things being organized
to death, but not at the W. V. U.
The contest in declamation of the
P. L. S. will come off in May, we are
reliably informed. Several of the
best members are on the list, and an
excellent time is anticipated.
Because some ill-bred students
were caught tearing up-side down n
fellow student’s room, by the owner
of the house and reported by him,
others fully as thoughtless in their
views of propriety join in ridicule.
Such actions merit, and we are glad
to say, reccivu tbe condemnation of
every thoughtful student who has a
feeling of respect for his fellowmeu.
A short rule for spelling was given
by one of the Professors a few days
ago to an advanced class who teem
ed a little slack in very common or
thography-. It will pay all to learn
it. Try it. “Spell the word just as
you did before.”
The most difficult sentence the
French class has dealt with recently,
to get it into good French is, “who
stole the Professors tobacco?” Al
exander saw it, Brown heard of it,
Coffman had it, Corbly bit it, Gal
ford smelled it, Gore stole it, Greer
took it, Jolliffe replaced it, Lemley
removed it, Post examined it, Ross
analized it, Shaffer carried it off and
Sivey told it. At last account the
ink-bottle was smoking a cigar and
Alexander’s room had an extra plug
in it. Coffman, please read on.
What an attentive geology class!
Delightful study! Would not miss
it for anything. Each one seems to
be developing a new idea of tbe
earth’s formation. Rankin is so in
terested, and his desire to see of the
rich geological deposits of the earth
so great, that he is doubtless devel
oping rudimentary wings to facili
tate locomotion.

WE congratulate our customers and friends Upon the return of the
l gtniai Spring season. It is always a pleasant relief tct exchange the
I heavier and more sombre apparel of Winter for the lighter and1
brighter wear of Spring. But this pleasure is enhanced when the'
| styles and colors which fashion has set her seal upon for the season,
are so attractive and tasteful as they arc at the present time. The
very’ best advertisement of our goods would be the goods themselves,
could they be sent around tor general inspection. As this is impossi
| ble we fall back on the faithful ty’pes to assist us to describe in some
measure the chief feature of our spring stock. By way of preliminary
we may say that we have brought our long business experience
and knowledge of local tastes, to the selection of the goods wc offer;
and with a result which we hope will be as gratifying to our customers
as to ourselves. The extent of our stock is unusually large and the
j variety offered in styles and materials is so wide that we think we can
scarcely fail of satisfying every intending purchaser. In every depart -
j ment our stock will be found to be complete; nothing has been neg
i lected in our effort to make it the most complete assortment of goods
j ever offered to the trading public of this locality. In making our se
I lections we have realized that to the quality of the goods sold we must
look for the building up of that confidence between buyer and seller
| so essential to a commercial success and permanence. Our customers
| will find that in respect to quality our stock has no superior il any
rival, our policy’ being to sacrifice a margin of our profits rather than
sacrifice the confidence of our customers in the goods we sell. Some
j rather unusual opportunities have been offered to watchful buyers to
secure bargains in some of the desirable standard lines. These we have
'taken advantage of anti customers will find that our prices are unns
l .ually low, relative to the value of goods we offer. We aim to satisfy
jail classes of buyers, and our stock therefore includes the varic y if
j grades which have correspondingly varied prices. Wc desire to be
known for cheapness, but we handle no cheap goods ; that is to say
wc give even in low price grades, the very best article the market af
fords for the money. It is a short-sighted policy for any’ merchant to
make a reputation for low priced goods at the expense of his reputa
tion for values. No article is really cheap which will not return the
| buyer the full value of the money’ expended in its purchase. Our
! steady’ aim is to satisfy buyers, not only by alluring bargains but by
the satisfaction that comes in goods that wear and stand the tests of
actual use. In the matter of novelties we think our stock will leave
nothing to be desired. By bufcig early’ in the market we secured the
early choice of styles and patterns which always give the buyer the
advantage of picking up such seasonable novelties as are soon exhaust
ed, if they prove desirable to purchasers. We commend to our cus
tomers our own method, that of early selection, as it follows in all
cases that the patterns which are most fancied are the soonest ex
hausted. Wc speak with conviction when we say that we do not
think any previous season has seen a more inviting display of goods
than those to which wc direct attention and of which wc invite y’oar
inspection, and we arc sure that it will be a matter of general surprise
and congratulation among buyers that v.e arc able to offer so large a
choice, and such excellent quality for prices that are remarkable for
their moderation. Respectfully Yours,
