Wytheville, Va.
Misses. Virginiaj'tTdSjBerna
Stone, of Mt. Carmel, spent
several jhy if here visiting rela
tives, and left Monday for
Wytheville, where Mr. Stone
will make his home.
Some two weeks ago the
Drug Store had their store
room painted and hard oiled
which added so much to its ap
pearence, that Messrs Jen
nings Neff & Co., caught the
idea and last week had their
store-room very stylishly paint
ed stained etc., their Office
plasticoed pink. This with
their new stock of goods is
one of the handsomest store
rooms in the city. Frank Wil
son did the work at both
places.
Our old friend and patron,
A. F. Stone, Esq , left his old
home at Mt. Carmel, on Mon
day of this week, for Wythe
viile, where he and his family
will reside in the future* Mr.
Stone was one of our most
enterprising citizens and
Smythe County can ill afford
to loose such men. He has
purchased large property
interests in Wythe Co., and
will engage extensively in the
milling and manufacturing
business there. It is useless
for us to commend Mr. Stone
to the people of his new home,
as his practical methods and
social and business standing
will commend him to any
community. We wish him
every success—Marion Dorno

Nefe’s Hall.

matic Company will give a

In addition to the play, Pat
Hufford will do some new
feats on slack wire walking,
which itself will well be worth
your money. ‘ The'proceeds
will be for the benefit of the
churches in town.

Do You Pay Cash, Or Run Accounts?
Ever look over the bills to see how
the prices ruu? Here you know ex
actly what you pay and you only pay
tor what you get. We don’t make you
pay for what is lost on others. There
are no losses here, as each and every
transaction is a cash one, and made
directly before your eyes, 'there is
necessarily many losses, and consid
erable expense, such as books, postage,
stationery, and extra help attached to
a credit business. Isn’t it reasonable
to suppose that some one has to pay for
these losses and expenses? Who pays
them? You help to pay them if you are
not buying hero. We are in a better
position to eel) you at a cut price than
the other dealers for several reasons*,
and our prices are uaiformally lower
than their’s. Some imitate us Lo a cer^
tain extent, while others attempt it. It’s
only a compliment, however, as they ac-,
knowledge us to be the leader whop
they imitate.
Price any half dozen articles here,
and then price the same elsewhere as
a test of who sells the lowest. It the.
test is not in our favor don’t buy here.;
All we ask is a fair show und we will
not be undersold That is if we know
it, and we are tolerably ulert.
