New Wash Goods
If you have not been iu to sec the new things in wash
goods you better. Everyone says we have the dantiest line
of of percales ever shown in this town. And besides these we
have the new Juvenile cloths; the goods you can make up and
feel assured the colors 'will stay and also feel all the time as if
you had your money's worth. They certainly are rugged
cloths for children's clothes or men's shirts. There are also
ginghams and prints galore.
In Our Garment Stock
You can find some surely bargains. We have been in
Toicing and find we have ladies' suits that must go at a price.
Good serviceable suits that sold at around $15, that we will
part with for five dollars. If we have your sie it will be to
your profit- to secure one of them. We find some sweaters
that are a little off in style that will be sold to some one for a
price. Perhaps not the very latest in style, but they have the
warmth, which is what counts these days.
In Muslin Underwear
We found some night robes and corset covers that were
slightly soiled that must go at a big discount. It is a chance
that comes only once in a while, so look it up.
We have quite a number of small sized corsets and girdles
that will be closed out at 25 cents the garment, regardless of
what they cost.

An Inspiring Address
An event that will long be remembered
by the people of Morrisville was the visit
of Dr. Chas. M. Sheldon of Topeka, Ka.,
ami his address on "The Main Things"
at the union meeting on Sunday evening,
at the Cong'l church. Dr. Sheldon's per
sonality radiates from him like heat from
a sunbeam, and his words ring out with
peculiar force and beauty because of the
man behind them. The church was filled
to capacity. The speaker made the plea
for: The union of all Christian force
irrespective of creeds, for the conquest of
evil ; for the suppression of the liquor
and vice traffic: for a large spirit of
Brotherliness, and for the reign of un
iversal peace, when war's banner shall
be forever furled, and the energy now
spent on war shall be used for the ad-
yancement of the cause 'of Righteousness

and tasinating to the extreme.
There will be especially good music by
the church choir.

The Judgment of Four Wise
Men on the Liquor Traffic
"The liquor traffic is a cancer in society, eating out the vitals
and threatening destruction, and all attempts to regulate it will
only prove abortive. There must be no attempts to regulate the
cancer, it must be eradicated."
"The liquor traffic is the most degrading and ruinous of all
pursuits. By legalizing this traffic we agree to share with the
liquor seller the responsibilities and evils of his business. Every
man who votes for license becomes of necessity a partner of the
liquor traffic and its consequences."
"It (the liquor traffic) tends to produce criminality in the
population at large and law breaking among the saloon keepers
themselves. When the liquor men are allowed to do as they wish
they are sure to debauch not only the body social but the body
public as well. If the American people do not control it, it will
W. J. Bryan
"The average saloon is the most disreputable place in the
community; it is a bureau of information on vice; it is the first
place one would enter to enquire for a gambling hall or a disorder
ly house. It is likewise the first place visited by the officers of
the law when they are looking for a criminal, and the first place
closed in case of riot or disturbance.
