The Temerson Store, Tupelo’s
enterprising dry goods house,
has moved its immense stock of
dry goods into the buildinpfform
erly occupied by Hinds Bros. &
Co., at the corner of Main and
Spring streets. Their large and
increasing trade made it abso
lutely necessary that they secure
a larger building in which to
carry on their business, and on
October 1st, they leased this
building for a long term of
The store has been remodeled,
repainted and decorated and is
/ now the handsomest dry goods
store in North Mississippi.
Mr. Temerson and wife spent
the month of August, in New
York and Baltimore buying their
fall stock which is now being re
ceived gnd placed in their new
store. In their shoe department
will be found the most complete
line to select from of any house
in the city. One whole side of
the building is set apart for
shoes in which they carry over
8.000 pair of the latest styles of
mens, ladies and childrens shoes.
They make a specialty of ladies
tailored suits, ana mis uepari
ment is one of the largest in the
store. They carry a large line of
mens and boys clothing—in fact
to look at their immense stock
one would think they had enbugh
to supply the whole of Lee coun
ty. In addition to these de
partments they handle a full line
of dry goods and millinery.
The store is a very attractive
and one of the best lighted in the
city. The Temersons have been
in Tupelo several years and have
a large circle of satisfied custom
ers. They cordially invite the
public to visit their new' store and
examine their stock before buy

Hitching Ordinance.
The ordinance passed by the
Mayor and Board of Aldermen at
their last regular meeting'requir
ing the hitching of teams in the
corporate limits will be found
elsewhere. The frequency of
runaways makes it imperative
that some measure be taken and
there was a public demand that
this evil be abated. The eye
less and reckless handling
of drays and delivery wTagons by
negro porters has become a men
ace to the lives and limbs of the
people and a stop should be put
to it before somebody loses their
life or receives serious injury.
There is too much at stake and
we call on the officers to enforce
