I have been doing so well this summer selling combination dip pers that I think it is my duty to tell others about it. 1 have not made as much money as some I read about, but I never make less than S3 and often 85 a day; the dipper can be used as a lruit jar filler, a plain dipper; a fine strain er; a funcel; a strainer funnel; a sick room warming pan, and a pint measure. These eight difier ent use makes the dipper such a necessary article that it sells at nearlv every house, as it is so cheap You can g?t a sample by sending, as I did, IS two-cent stamps to pay postage, etc , to V. H. Baird & Co. Station A, Pittsburg, Pa., and they will mail you a dipper, and yu can go right to work. Any one can make $3 or $4 a day anywhere. A Header. Sep. 3 13t Objections to Endless Woe. NO. 2. My second objection to endless punishment is, its belief fills the heart with bitterness, robs the af flicted of the last drop of coi sola1" tion, and drives reason from htr throne, How can one take a mo ments peace iu the belief of endless suffering for himself or neighbors. Suppose yourself pleasantly situa ted in vour dwelling in your dwell ing beside the sea shore. All are at home except one sturdy son and he has gone down upon the dark waters. As you rehearse the dam gers of the deep a storm arises. Be tween the lightnings vivid flash and tbe thunder's burst, you bear a cry of distress You stand upon the iron bound coast, you listen . . . i The voice rises higher, and asjove the noise of the angry waves you recognize it. It is the voice of your absent son returning from the S3a. That gallant ship upon which he sailed has been dashed upon the rocks, and he is clinging to the heaving wreck. Now, can you hear unmoved those cries for help? i Tweader, you know the thing is im possible. How then can you look over the battlements of heaven down the regions of infinite woe, and hear the shriekr of a son or a daughter and be happy? No, nev er! So you sec, if you see at all, endless misery is false. Some un believer may tell you God will ex. tinguish )our social sympathies and thus enable you to sing sweet hallelujahs in their damnation. Think of it, do you expect going to heaven will transform you into de mons, so that you can rejoice over the miseries of your frieudu? If you expect to retain those kind, tender feelings in heaven that you possessed on earth, I entreat you to look down from your shining seat above, and survey the millions that are enduring the most excru ciating pains there. Perhaps there is your lriend, who in this life was a benevolent and moral man. He saw you in this world in distress, he held your aching head, watched by your bedside and watered your willow with his tears. That friend who flew to your relief is now swel tering in the flames of hell. He looks to vou for sympathy, I ask are you happy to see him in suffer ing? No no! not unless you are harder than adamant, and if enter ing heaven will change one into a fiend, God grant that this bosom may never have one aspiration to enter such an abode. No man ev er did, or can devise one drop of consolation from a belief in the doctrine of endless misery. It fans up a flame of misery in the bosom of him who sincerely believes it, it crushes the fondest hopes, and has broken many a mother's heart. I abhor the doctrine of endless woe as I do the most poisonous reptile. T. Byrum. An Bi.-.'.-,. : -I - ' 4 .. T Job printing of the neatest and best kind promptly done at this office.

II .flBSlVJ pli li SIS km traaMteit? FRONTING PASSENGER DEPOT. OFF FOR NEW YORK. September 25th our buyer left for a three week's trip through the East ern and Northern states in search of merchandise for our Fall and Win ter trade. All the leading manufacturers and largest trade centres will be visited, and with the ready cash to discount every purchase, he will procure bargains for our trade. Our capacity to handle large quanti ties of goods will further aid him in securing the lowest possible prices on everything. In times of business depression, unfortunate manufacturers part with portions of their products far below cost of production. Their misfor tune is our opportunity. The ring of the American dollar brings prices to their lowest level. The word "credit" is repulsive to a great army of sellers, and finds no place in our business vocabulary. Saturday, Sept. 26, marked the seventh mile post of our successful business in South Pittsburg. Seven years ago, Sept. 20, 1889, we began business here with less than $300 worth of goods, and our first day's sale was only lil.GO. The people soon recognized our low prices und fair dealing and sales began to grow rapidly. The size of our store was then 20 feet wide and 30 feet long. A continued business growth for several years has enabled us to own and occupy now the largest and fin est store in the Valley. Our store is 50 feet wide and 140 feet long, two stories and basement, giving us 21,000 square feet of floor space. We thank all customers for their patronage in the past, and hope by our libaral policy of fair treatment and honest dealing to merit their trade in the future. We solicit trade of those who have not been our patrons in the past, and promise the same liberal, fair and honest treat- ment. Yours truly, p. S. Our Fail Stock of all lines will soon be full and complete and prices below all competitors. 54fe? ... VMS top.? Advertise iu the News.
