About September first we shall move into
our new store, at the old stand, Barlow Block,
Public Square, where we shall open the most
elegant assortment of goods in our line ever
brought to Southwest Georgia. At our pres
ent store on Cotton Avenue, we have a large
stock of Watches, Clocks and Jewelry, Solid
Silver and Plated Ware, Pianos, Oigans and
Sewing Machines, and everything else usually
kept in a Jewelry and Music Stove, that must
be reduced to save moving and make room
for new goods. Therefore, for the next
Twenty Days, or until we move, will sell any
thing we have in stock at prices lower than
have ever been reached before
will take pleasure in showing
and pricing them. Come and
examine whether you wish to
buy or not.
One word to the wise: 1
bought these goods to sell, and
go they must for scveml rea
sons, hence take advantage of
the low prices mid lay in your
fall supply in the wearing lino.

New York, Sept. 24—The
World will thii morning publish a
remarkable story concerning the
physical condition of James G.
Blaine. It is to the effect that a
prominent New York physiolan
diagnosed hfe case at Bar Harbor,
Maine. This physician declares
that Mr. BlainC is in the laat stage
of Bright’s disease, and is certain
to die soon, probably before he
could take his seat as President, if
elected. It is an open secret that
Mr. Blaine has been afflioted with
this terrible malady for years, and
it has only been a question of
time when the insidious disease
would complete its work. The
cates and anxiety attending tho
nomination and campaign have
stimulated the disease, and its rav
ages in the last few weeks are said
to be frightful.

ble to get particulars of the affair.
Considerable oxoitoment prevails
Seven shots wore fired and two or
three parties thought to have been
implicated cannot be found. The
allalr seems to be complicated, and
when tbe particulars are known
it may be worse than was appre
Sentenced to Death.
