in the Dry Goods business, I have decid
ed to make a change. My entire line of
Dry (ioods^Clothing, Shoes, Hats

in bulk, but prefer to give my customers
and friends who have traded with me in
the past, the benefit of this opportunity
to supply their wants at

i Tor a time. I have no old goods or trashy
t stock to palm off on the public, for you
all know I have been in business only a
short time since my separation from the
old firm.

sale, the less the expense. Come at once
and get some of the big bargains in Dress
Goods, Silks, Velvets, Woolens, Clothing

BRUIN PROVED A BIG FEATURE.
Tame Bear Gets In His Wors Right
Along.
One of the outdoor attractions in the
city just now is a tame bear. Bruin is
as gentle as a dog and a great favorite.
Yesterday he slipped up behind a car
nival visitor and, rearing up to his full
height, gave the man a hug that caused
him to see stars, comets, Jumbo.snakes
1 and centipedes at one* time. It was

PAGEANT A GRAND SPECTACLE.
Floral Parade A Beautiful Feature In
deed.
Rarely has Americus witnessed a
spectacle of such surpassing beauty as
that in the floral parade yes-
terday afternoon when score of hand
some equipages and prettily decorated
bicycles drove through the crowded
streets evoking the genuine admira
tion of thousands of interested specta
tors.
It was a first effort in this direction,
and the ladies and gentlemen taking
part enjoyed it as much as did the hap
py onlookers.
Promptly at 3 o’clock the glittering
pageant moved from the corner of
Church and Dudley streets, the Abbe
ville Cornet Band occupying first po
sition. The route was out Church to
Lee aud thence to the city.
Following the band came Americus’
fire department, in charge of
Chief Smith, the engines and trucks
being very tastefully decorated in car
nival colors, while the firemen in uni
form were in their places, ready for a
ruu though in holiday attire.
Next came the magnificently decor
ated carriage of Queen Katherine, the
other occupants besides Her Majesty
being King Charles and two of the
maids of honor, a second carriage, al
so superbly decorated m floral designs,
bearing the remaining maids of the
Qaeen. The colors were white and
royal purple.
Following tire royal suite came pret
ty little girls on handsomely decorated
wheels.
The carriages came next in line, the
beauty of the fair occupants alone sur
passing that of the gorgeous flowers
adorning the traps. There were twen
ty or more carriages in line and made
a pretty pageeut.
