NOW, FOR BUSINESS.

We are selling
Best Standard Granulated Sugar, @ 5ct. per lb.
Splendid Java Coffee @ 25 cts. per lb
N. O. Molasses @ 40 cts. per gal.
And everything else in the Grocery line at proportionate prices (that may not be cheaper than anyone else can sell you them), but I want to tell you in the columns of the Courier of some "Bargains" that I can offer you. On Shoes we can beat 'em all.

I have hunted all over to see where I could buy the best shoes at the lowest price, and I have found the place. A manufacturer in the Shoe Country, who is a go-ahead fellow, believes in making good goods and quick sales at small profit for Cash. I'll sell them the same way.
HERE ARE THE UNAPPROACHABLE PRICES
Baby Shoes sizes 1 to 6, 35cts. per pair. A real good Spring Heel Shoe, Goat or Kid, sizes 5 to 8, 50 cts. per pair. A good solid Misses School Shoe, Heeled or Spring, $1 per pair. Ladies Pebble Goat Button Shoes, $1 per pair. Mens Canvas Shoes, all sizes, 90 cts. per pair. Mens Canvas Shoes, Rubber Bottoms, 65 cts. per pair.

When the large Wholesale houses get sold down so close that they have not enough Hats of a kind to send out by their agents, they put them on a counter and sell them cheap. I happened to be there just in the nick of time and bought a lot of them, and am selling them cheap. For instance, Hats that cost $1.55 each at wholesale for which a Milliner would charge perhaps $2 we are selling for 50 cts. The ladies appreciate this bargain, and they are going like "hot cakes". If you want some, you had better make a rush for them.

When you come I would be please to show you the Hamburg Edgings. The other day I bought a big Job lot of them $200 or $300 worth very cheap and can show you the best assortment you ever say in this vicinity, and sell them to you at wholesale prices. Don't fail to see it. RESPECTFULLY, ROSWELL DAVIS
