THE STAR STORE.
“what a beauty!” is the expression of
every one, who takes a peep at the win
dows of the Star Store. Those windows
display a taste of artistic beauty and
arrangement, of colors so as to produce
the most optical sensation known to the
cultivated mind of a citizen of this
christianized nation, in this the 19th
century. But though you pass through
a daintily arrayed display all the way hack
through the store, you are still dazed
with the magnificant arrangement of the
most costly material, intermingling their
every hue in the millinery room. It is
too beautiful a picture to paint with
words. Go and see it. Misses Coving
ton and Hightower will welcome you.
We will have something more to say
about this next week.

We call attention to the announcement
of Mr. W. A. Maugham for the office ef
tax receiver. Every one who knows Mr.
Maugham, and nearly everybody knows
him, has no doubt as to his competency.
He served his country four years in the
days that tried men’s souls. He was a
true soldier and fought to defend the
people lie now ashs to help him in the
days when he has grown old and needy.
Who could resist the appeal? He has
waited on more sick folks, sat up more
at night and loves to do so, and his own
family has been sick for ten years. Now,
he only asks you to give him work that
he can do as well as any one to enable
him to pay his debts.

When ene enters The New fork Store

that beggars description. The back
ground is composed of layer after layer,
of a solid and firm appearance dotted
with the brightest and costliest apparel

While gazing on the scene one thinks
perfection is a tame name for the ar
rangements of the different views. Bat

for anything you can buy, beg or steal at

kept active. The money that goes away

At present the only candidates who
have intimated that they will be in the
race for senator from this district are,
Cabaniss, Bartlett, Bener, and Atkin
son, of this county. They are all good
men and either might fill the office very
acceptably. Cabaniss, however, hasn’t
as many supporters in Butts as he had
when he made the- race before, and it is
very doubtful if he could get 300 votes
iu Butts for his re-election to the office
be now holds.
