representative of all that is beautiful, stylish, at=
tractive and of such medium price.

is earnestly requested and desired at our first Spring opening in your midst. In
making our initial bow, we have outlined a policy to pursue that must gain and
hlod your confidence. Our merchandise is new and the very latest city styles,
every train bringing something to add to the completeness of our stock.
Our Mr. H. Hess has just returned from the Eastern markets, where he spared
no pains in securing the very latest that the markets afford. Having gone to
market early, he had the unbroken stocks from which to make his selections, and
how well he has done his work we will leave for you to say.
Every box we open enthuses us the more. We have just opened our Dry Goods, and such lovely pat
terns! They seem to tell you what they were intended for—waists, dresses and for children's wear. Oar
embroidery cannot be excelled. Our line of Skirts are the very acumen of style and perfect fit.

The Selection of Ties.
A man was buying a tie and
carefully laid aside one or two
as not worthy of consideration,
says the New York Sun. The
salesman picked out one of the
rejects and placed it in a sepa-;
rate box, which prompted the |
buyer to ask if it had been placed
with those he was looking at by |
"Oh, no," was the response, j
"but we have orders when five
or six men turn down a tie as
they look over a box to take it
out and put it aside."
"Then what becomes of it"?
"We sell them to women who
come'in here to buv ties for men"

Telltale Footprints Of Old
A mm never knows when he
is covering up his tracks; he
never knows how long they will
stay covered or who will get on
his trail. Up in Canada, where
they are digging for the new
Toronto water works, the diggers
found in the blue clay, seventy
feet below the w^ter line, the
footprints of a gentlemen who
had tramped around that way
some years ago. The geologists
disagree as to the exact time,
some holding that the freshness
of the footprints indicates that
it was only 50,000 years ago,
while others believe that the toe
nail prints indicate that it has
been about 100,030 years since
the gentlemen passed that way.
Not that this slight discrepancy
matters to the gentleman or to
us; for nobody had to sit on the
fence there and wait for him
50,000 years, even if he did hap
pen to be late.—Baltimore Sun.

The Best Fertilizers for Corn
That the yield of corn from the average farm can be greatly in
creased by intelligent and liberal fertilization has been repeatedly
demonstrated. Large crops of good corn result from preparing the
land well, using the right kinu and quantity of fertilizer, good seed
and proper cultivation.
will greatly " increase your yield per acre " of corn or any other crop.
In some cases remarkable results have been obtained.
Mr. C. W. Caruthers of Sumpter County, Fla., writes: "Words
cannot express the value of your fertilizer. It is really so far ahead
of other companies' goods, that it would not pay anyone to use other
brands, were they given free and put in the field. 1 can prove what
I say to be a fact. I made a test on five acres. I used on one half
the land your fertilizer and on the other half another company's fertil
izer, samograde; the land received the same cultivation every time.
I kept a correct account of the amount of money I got off each half
andI got $joo more from the land on which I used Virginia-Carolina
Fertilizer than I did off the other half. I got four times as much
corn from the land oil which I used your fertiliser." *"■

Preserve Eggs Fresh.
Because of the rare superiority
>f a really fresh eg.r over one
that has lost that freshness, eggs
are always very much high· r in
orice at some seasons than others.
When they are cheap the family
is likely to get its share, but
when high priced home folks
sometimes go without.
Why not preserve the eggs
fresh? If one gallon of water
glass, worth not to exceed 50
cents, mixed with 12 to 1-5 gal
ons of water, will preserve 50
lozsn eggs, what is the profit in
)utting up 50 dozen eggs when
chey are worth 15 cents a dozen
ind keeping them until they are
worth 25 cents a dozen?
If the males be kept from the
lens and nothing but clean,
tfresh, sound eggs Used, they
will keey in good condition—so
chat it will take an expert to tell
the .difference.—for six or eight
riornths if put in thrsisblution of
water glass and kept in a coo!
place.—Southern Farm Gazette.
