A Pittsburg, Pa., capitalist arrived at Fisher a few days ago. He came to hunt, but when lie looked at the rugged mountains that loom ip in every direc tion, he abandoned the idea of walking over them in quest of game. The cap italist then offered ten dollars for a pair of wild turkeys. The local sports men went out. but no turkeys were to he found. One of our farmers had a large gobler, that suddenly went wild, our sportsmen came across him.prompt lv shot him down and brought him to the capitalist, who at once handed over the five dollars. He then telegraphed to his Pittsburg friends to be prepared, as he was coming laden with one of the finest wild turkeys that could he found in West Virginia. While tbe Pitts burger fed his friends on turkey, our sportsmen were laughing in their sleeves at the expense of the would-be hunter.—Elkins News. Jackets up to $2°>.0n now $9.75. CEO. M. SXOOK & CO.

A Rogers heavy silver plated knife or fork given by the Wheeling Bakery in redeeming tin seals. This is the most superb article ever offered by the Bak ery. Every home should have a com plete set of silver knives and forks. During the Holidays Appears to Be Generally Satisfactory. , Reportorial Investigation in Repre sentative Lines Disclose a Wide* spread Feeling That Business Was Up to the Mark in This City. Resistor reporters talked yesterday with a number of leading retailers as to the actual results of the holiday trade so far, and in the great majority of cases found that the merchants were well satisfied with the patronage they received. As is always the case, even in the most pros perous times, there was some, complaint, but not more than the average amount, and it was offset by statements, in sev eral lines, by several merchants, that the gross total so far had broken their indi vidual records. The aggregate volume of purely holiday trade, taking everything and everybody into consideration, is per haps fully up to the average for the past five year’s, and under the circumstances that is very satisfactory. During the investigation a number of merchants were asked as to the charac ter of the demand for goods, with refer ence to whether cheap, medium or high quality merchandise was most in request, and some interesting information was picked up along this line. I'or instance. oni' well known retailor sain. “In my line I must confers that the de mand was for little things and low price 1 poods, and I must also confess that I ant very glad it Is so. Why? l’or set oral reasons chief among them being that there is more money in the business when it goes that way. In the goods I handle there has for years been a decided and steady drift in the direction of novelties at low prices, and this year it appears there are more new and catchy little piin craoks than ever before. Now. perhaps you know, and then perhaps you don t, that there is a better margin of profit, as a ruie, in say $l.(X»i worth of small and cheap articles, than In two or three or half a dozen larger things aggregating the same value. Then, again, there Is less liability to get caught with a whole lot of little things of all sorts and for all uses. You lay in for the holiday trade, say a lot of extra fine furniture, or some two and three karat diamonds, or some seal skin coats, or a gross of eight dollar ‘plug hats, and ten people will look at and admire them where one will buy, and very likely, in order to sell at all, you will have to shade the prices until thero is no profit left, and then charge it. You must sell the goods, and cut and cut to achieve your point, get rid of half of them, and have to keep the rest in stock, to sutler depreciation and loss. Now. with a like amount invested in little tilings, within the reach of everybody. I have a good tiling of it. To N,;rt with, there is a much larger percentage of profit on the goods, the sales are cash, and the prices are so low we get what we ask without trouble. Then people having so much money to spend for presents, like to see it go as far as poslbie, and come in here and find they can get something for everybody out of their allowance, and ten to one they go right through the whole list. As a rule they leave us pretty well cleaned out. but If we do get ‘stuck,' as the saying is, on any one or two lilies, the original cost was so trilling, in large lots, and the margin is so pood on what we have disposed of, that we shed compara tively few tears.'’ “We have had an excellent Christmas trade.” said a leading book-seller to a re porter. “Fine editions have gone a little slow, except to regular buyers of that sort of thing, but we didn’t stock up very heavy in that line, and so haven't a great deal of money locked up there. In medium bindings, sets of standard au thors. gift books, cards, calendars, and | the full run of ‘fancies.’ there was a good demand right along, and the volume of business is rather better than we hoped for.” •'The jewelry trade has beer all right.* said a gentleman in that line. '‘Diamonds, which are a great specialty with us. sold readily, and we were enabled to show our customers a larger and liner assortment than ever before: The better grade of china and bric-a-brac, silver, jewelry of the medium and better grades, and. in fact, our general stock, sold well, and Thurs day's trade was particularly gratifying. We have a record of doing a little more, business, in the week before Christmas, but we have also done much worse, and therefore we are well pleased.” At a large confectionery establishment, two dry goods stores, a cigar store, and several other establishments, all reprosen I tntive of the local retail trade, good re ports were given the newspaper man. and in several places the busi ness end of Christmas appeared to be all that was hoped for and in some cases better than was expected. I The year as whole, while perhaps no bet t.r than 181)5. is certainly up to the volume of that year, and Wheeling retailers and wholesalers alike will face 1S!*7 with con tidence and hope. WANTS ms MONEY. Christmas eve an Island woman had an encounter with a Martin's Ferry street car conductor and left him minus % cents. The affair occurred under peculiar cir cumstances. The woman boarded the car in Wheeling and trot off at South Penn street. In payment of her fare site jrave the conductor a five dollar bill. The car being greatly crowded at the time and the conductor being somewhat flurried by the hustle of people getting on and off. failed to notice the denomination of the hill, and put it in his pocket, thinking It was a one dollar bill. He gave the lady nine ty-live cents change. After some time had elapsed the woman, of course, com plained of not getting the proper change, and loudly d< mended, in the presence of a ear full of people, her change. The con ductor investigated and found that he had >, lly been given a five dollar bill. Not having the $4 In change, he gave her tho five dollar bill and requested her to leave the ninety-five cents at the street ear of fice. He says she replied that she did not know whether she would or not. and soon afterwards got off the car. She has not yet appeared at the office. at once for first pick from UOmc our full line of Jackets at the reduced prices. CEO. M. SNOOK & CO. For Sale—A small farm up Caldwell’s run.
