is too low. We cannot afford to sell it all at that, but some of us will have to sell some of it. If you
can buy your goods at prices in proportion to Bto 9 cent cotton, you can afford to'sell enough
to buy what you need. I have just returned from New York where I bought the largest and
best stock of reliable merchandise I have ever had; and best of all, I bougt it at the lowest
prices of the season.
!>ome of the merchants say that they are not
going to buy any new goods on account of the low
price of cotton, but t think if I buy new goods and
get them at lower prices, that they will sell better
than old goods.
Things move along so rapidly nowadays that
people who say “it can’t be done” are always be
ing interrupted and surprised by somebody doing
it, and I find that the people who do things are the
beople who succeed, and I know that you will
want new dresses tor your wife and children, so S
bought a big stock of
The new suit that has been promised must be
bought, and everybody wants the latest
Suits* for Men sl.So to $20.00.
To mention all the things I have in stock for you would
take all this paper, so when you want anything in genera!
merchandise, you will find it he e at the lowest price for
which it can be sold.
Wath this space for prices next week.
MRS. J. W. fOU'i DEAD.
Statiia'i —On Wednesday night
just at the hour of midnight, while
loving friends and faithfr.il relatives
kept their constant watch, the spir
it of this good woman took it*
flight to a hotter world. Before
her marriage to Mr. J. W. Cody,
some 28years ago, she was Miss
Nannie Baugh. Mrs. Cody was a
faithful member of the Baptist
church and was ever found at her
Master’s husines.:, always doing
something for the uplift of her peo
ple and her community. To their
union were born five children. On*
of them was on the other shore
waiting and watching to welcome
mamma hour* 1 ; Mrs. \V. H. Edgar,
and little Velma, of this city, alrd
Mr. Luther Cody, of Atlanta, and
Pierce, who is confined to his bed
at their home in this city with fever.
Eor me to say that Mrs. Cody was
a good woman would hardly Tell
the story of h r life, for she was in
deed a noble, true and good woman,
her life an open book, and those
who knew her best can even while
she is dead read upon its pages vir-
tue after virtue that will ever keep
her memory living.
All that skill and good nursing
could do was done, but the best was
not enough. Our friend has gone,
and to those more deeply tom bed
by her death we would say the
kindest words of comfort if -we
could, hut her life should be more
comfort to you than all that men
could say of her. Toe remains of
Mrs. Cody were intend in the City
r nietery at Bog, rt, in the presence
of a host of friends and relatives,
the services being conducted by the
Rev. Save, of Athens. The floral
tributes were beautiful.

WIN PAPA S SICK.
When papa’s sick, my goodness
Such awful, awful times it makes,
He speaks in oh! such lonesome
And with such ghastly kind of
And rolls his eyes and holds his
And makes me help him up in bed;
While Sis and Bridget run to heat
Hot water bags to warm his feet,
And I must get the doctor quick—
We have to jump when papa’s sick.
When papa’s sick ma has to stand
Right side the bed and hold his
\\ hile Sis she has to fan an’ fan,
For he says he’s “a dying’ man,”
And wants the children round him to
Be there when ‘sufferin’ pa gets
And kiss us all and then he’ll die;
Then moans and says his“breathin’s
It’s awful sad when papa’s sich.
When papa's sick he acts that way
Until he hears the doctor say,
“You’ll Lx- all right'll a day or so.”
And then —well, say! you ought to
He’s different as a man could be,
And growls and scolds from noon to
Just ‘cause his dinner ain’t cooked
And all he does is fuss and kick —
We're all used up when papa’s sick.
—E x chaxof.
