About September first we shall move into
our new store, at the old stand, Barlow Block,
Public Square, where we shall open the most
elegaut assortment of goods in our line ever
wrought 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, Organs and
Sewing Machines, and everything else usually
jept in a Jewelry and Music Store, 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
FOR O-A-SIHC I
Come and examine our stock, get our
prices, and we will guarantee that you will
be convinced that we mean what we say
Remember we have great bargains to offer for
CASH and the time in which to secure them
I know ray friends and cus
tomers think that I ara rather
silent since my return from the
North, but it was done on ac
count of moving into my new
mammoth store, and also in
opening and arranging the
stock. I will break the silence
by stating that I have bought
a very large stock of goods,
comprising Dry Goods, Furnish
ing Goods, Clothing, Shoes,
Hats, and in fact everything
pertaining to ladies and gentle
men’s Wear. I “struck” in
time the Halstead, Haynes &
Co. which stock, was sold at

These goods are of the finest
and best makes, and l will offer
them at prices that will make
you think that I have got them
without buying them at all.
will take pleasure in showing
and pricing them. Come and
examine whether you wish to
buy or not.
One word to the wise: I
bought these goods to sell, and
go they must for several rea
sons, hence take advantage of
the low prices and lay in your
fall supply in the wearing line.

Tho itbove ia now an applicable
motto for the six loiulingdry goods
houses of Macon. Since the nd
vent of I.yon & Clem, a now Arm
into the market here, there has
been a great commotion and stir in
those circles, and every issue ol tbe
morning psper Ims a reduced price
list of goods from each house, with
a great flourish, until tbe innocent
private citizens are induced to be'
licve that th* price of goods will
Dually go bclow'zero, and that they
will bo paid lo haul, them away.
The advertising man of one house
quotes Shakespeare and Pope as
header. Another furnishes us with
a vivid description of the falling
of the elcctrio light tower. An'
other with a graphic account of
tho midnight dynamio explosion
that occurred a few nights since in
the centre oi tho oity. Another
speaks of the big summer failures
in New York, and of tbe trentem
dons bargains lie made thero for
the beneflt of his customers. The
underhanded outs that they make
at each other are numerous and bc-
vere. Some are sly nnd well com
ceived, and the lash is laid on un
mercifully. The disinterested cit
izen calmly sits down and views
the situation from a highly amus'
ing point. They enjoy tho blow,
and take advantage of and proflt
by tho light, and buy what goods
they need very oheap. The news
paper men also reap a harvest, en
joy tbo fun, nnd are willing for the
light to continuo so long ns tho be-
ligernnts pay for their advertise'
ments. Chough they all pretend
to scii goods very cheap, some of
them below cost, no fatalities arc
reported as the result as yet.
As before written, Mcrecr Uni-
versity opened this week witli the
best prospect over boforo known
in tho iiistory of that scat of learn
ing. We sincerely hope that the
people will begin to patronize
their homo institutions and to
build them up to tbo standard of
colleges at a distance, and that tbo
only chance for us to have home
institutions and facilities of every
kind Is to uphold them by our pat
ronage and support, as well as by
our good wishes, and not send oil
to other communities for every
thing we get, thus enriching them
with what Justly belongs at borne,
and crippling every homo interest.
Their exouse is that no such ad-
vantages arc offered at home. We
say yes, and that thero nover will
bo unless we build up whst we
have by our patronage and mak*
This has been a lively week with
Hie fun loving part of our popuU'
tion. Sinco tbe dual performance
written about of Monday night wo
have had two trou pcs. On Tucs-
uay night Harlow & Wilson
minstrels appeared before the
largest audience that over greeted
a minstrel company in Macon, or
perhaps any other kind of compa
ny. Over 1 500 people wero in the
audicnco, and nearly fl,100 were
tbe receipts. It is said thal they
gave a good laughablo perform
ance, but we deem it no compll
moot to Macon that minstrels
draw the largest bouses.
Or. Thursday night, not a very
large but very intelligent audience
witnessed the first appearance of
Lizzie May Ulmer before a Macon
public. Tbo play was liquid nnd
beautiful, and beautifully acted.
Miss Ulmer made many friends in
Macon, and a large bouse will
tercet her next annearance.

Ice Cream Festival given
ladies last night, for tbe
the City Park, was a decided
cess. Thero wero not as tnaay in
attendance as might have been
reasonably expected, but wbat we
lacked in numbers was more than
made up in beauty, intelligence
and generosity. In fao
select and elegant party
be found (as an old frien
say) “’twixt blue sky
gross.” There was plenty of ex
cellent oake, Ice crOHm, lemonade
and—and—something else, with
an outlandish name, smell and
taste, which I oonld neither spell,
pronounce, eat nor drink. Bnt it
was ever so nice, they said. The
net proceeds of tho entertainment

cake, made by Mrs. S. S. Cobb,
was voted to the prettiest young
lady present. It bronght'$16,60,
and was voted to Miss Olando

“amidst prolonged applause.”

Wasuinuton, September 8A.—
Secretary Post, of the Democratic
Congressional Committee, has re
turned to boadquarters In this olty.
He attended a conference of Demo
cratic leaders in Now York yes
terday. “ What do the Democratio
managers in New York sty of tbe
situation t" asked a reporter ol
They profess to be well satis
fied,” he replied. “They speak
with confidence of tbe onteome in
New York, and they really feel
confident. They regard tbo Blaine
tour as an cvldenco of desperation.
I saw men—Democrats, or conrse-
who attended tbe Blaino meeting
in New York, and they said that
thero was not that hearty enthusi
asm manifested whioh has marked
the Republioan party in past
fights. Tho faot that none of tbe
prominent ataiwart leaders oalled
on Mr. Blaino is commented npon
in New York as very significant.”
Mr. Post will not publish bis re

Representative Mitchell, of Con

“I feel quite euro that Cleveland
will carry Conncotient. He will
get a great many Republican votes.
The Independent Republicans are
well organized and are doing effec
tive work. Their committee send
out about es many documents as
cither the Republican or Demo
cratio committee, and they only
send them to those who apply lor
them. There are a great many
Republicans who intend to vote
for Cleveland, but they say noth
ing about it. Tbcyaie quiet men.

out making any fuss. I know ol a
single block in New Haven in
which fourteen Republican* reside.
Twelve of them are against Blaine,
and most of tbeq (perhaps the
whole twelve) will vote lor Cleve
land, but they don’t talk any. The
Independent Republican* will vote
for Cleveland, but they will sup
port their party candidate for
Governor, hence Cleveland will
run ahead of ou- state - ticket, bnt
I believe we will win on both tick
ets.” “When Boiler first declared
himself a candidate, I waa disoonr-
