The Sale at Troy. . j
A stock salo held at Troy last week
-attracted quite a largo crowd to that lit
tle city. W. A. Smith, J. B. Mitchell
and Gid McRee promoted the salo and
quite a lot of stock changed hands.
Several tracts of land were also sold,
including a tract belonging to VV. A.
Smith, which brought $70 an acre, and
a tract belonging to Mr. Mitchell which
brought $76 an acre. The ladies of the
Cemetery Association served dinner,
and a quilt was sold to add to tho fund.
The auctioneer sold tho quilt to several
;parties who turned it back to the asso
ciation as a gift. W. C. Farris was one
of the bidders who paid $10 for the
cjuilt and returned it to the association.
Then the auctioneer asked for four of
the prettiest girls present, each to take
hold of a corner of the quilt and hold
it out, and tho crowd was solicited to
pitch in additional subscriptions. Alto
gether the association realized over $150,
which is ample to keep the cemetery in
repair for the present year.
Use Jersey Cream Flour. None better.
The exhibit and demonstration con
ducted by Garner & Bean last Friday
at the store on tho corner of Church
and First street, was a very popular af
fair. The hours were from one to five,
and it is safe to say that the attendance
was between four and five hundred.
The Club House line, which the firm
is offering as a leader, was shown by
the representative of tho wholesale
house in Chicago, Mr. G. Z. Allison.
This line includes everything in can
goods, packages and bottles, and it is
one of the best high-grade lines manu
factured. In fact Garner & Bean are
staking it against anything in the
market. The large crowd was shown
these goods to the greatest advantage.
A number of articles were opened and
tested, and tho one comment was su
perb. The National Biscuit Co. was represent

The World Against Him.
This play was presented by a com
pany of home talent under the auspices
of the B. P. O. E. last Friday night to
an appreciative audience at the opera
house. It was a beautiful story in four
acts under the personal direction of
Fred J. Weisard.
The company cannot receive too much
praise for the manner hi which each
part was delineated. Miss Ruth Cren
shaw and Mr. Weisard deserve special
Wntion. Miss Kathleen Watson as
Mrs. Lee played her part as a profes
sional. Miss Kate Morris as Sadie de
serves much credit. Wallace Moffett
and Corker Jackson were well up in
their parts. Mr. Downing brought the
villain's applause, tho hisses, for his
good work. John Sanders was a "de
tecitive" of the first quality. Miss
Coble and the quartette rendered some
very beautiful music. It was plain to
see that Mr. Weisard and Miss Cren
shaw were associated with a good sup
porting cast, and much praise alto
gether is deserved for the Success of the
play. The Elks are under obligations
to the company for its splendid work,
which has been commented upon as the
best ever presented by home talent in
the city. ; .

Of Mr. McConnell, the leading press
comment is that he is an entertaining
talker. He was educated for a lawyer,
and spent the first years of his matur
ity in the courtroom, afterwards rgsign
ing this profession to enter the ministry.
He shows the depth of a wide experi
ence and couples it with a reasoning
ability of high order. The steps of his
address were interspersed with humor
ous stories and sketches, cleverly told.
He is a large man with a strong face and
an appealing personality, and his talk of
last evening was so sincerely given as to
be Ion? remembered.

MOT I GE
TO THE PUBLIC
l In handling and selling the damaged stock of the Naylof
Furniture Co, some people were under the impression that it
was the Home Furniture Co. I want to say that the Home
Furniture Co. had nothing whatever to do with the sale of the
damaged stock, as it was my own personal business and not
in any way connected with the Home Furniture Co. Neither
was there any stock carried into the store of the Home Furni
f I hope that this will correct the wrong impression that
some Deople seem to have.
1$ Thanking each and every one for their liberal patronage.
Manager Home Furniture Co.
