The Lawn Studio."
Mrs. M. E. Gillam is having erected
at her home on Lenoir street a modern
photographic studio and will soon be
prepared to furnish photographs to the
public in the best and latest style of
the art. Mrs. Gillam completed an
art course at Greensboro Female Col
lege about fifteen years ago and has
since given much time and study to
work in art. Several months ago she
took up the study of photography and
how well she has succeeded is best told
by photographs of her execution. We
have seen some of her work and in our
opinion it is the equal cf the best. We
bespeak for Mrs. Gillam a liberal
share of the work of the community in
this line. She has given her studio
the prettv and appropriate name of
"The Lawn Studio."

Now, in this day of rush and push and advancing- prices,
it stands you in hand to keep your eyes open to your own

We took an early start this time and placed heavy orders
for future deliveries on lots of stuff that we could close out
for a good advance, and not have them shipped, but we don't
want our profit that way. We want these prices right here,
so that we will be able to undersell all competition.
You no doubt hear every merchant crying- about advance
in prices. There is an advance on some things, and they
would have you believe everything is up. But this is not the
case, as you can find out by coming to our house and seeing
nearly everything in our stock selling at the same old price.
We started here 15 months ago, when goods of all kinds were
lower than they had been in 50 years.
Our clothing departure has been such a success we have
decided to give it 50 feet more of our floor space, and we have
bought the largest line of Youths' and Boys' Clothing that
the town has seen in years. Our line of Men s Goods will
be "right up to snuff, and cheap according."
We have placed orders for our clothing with some of the
largest and best known houses in America.
These goods will arrive about February 12th to March
1st and we went everybody to come and see.
