About September first we shall move into
our new store, at the old stand, Barlow Block,
Public Square, where wo 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, Organs and
Sewing Machines, and everything else usually
kept 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

ABOUT CONTINENTAL LIARS.
The Stage Driver’s Joke.
Old Uncle Ben, the veteran stago
driver, was an inveterate Joker,
and was fond of practicing his art
upon Ids passengers who shared
the driver’s box with him. One
day Ids horses were toiling along a
lonely country road, and just nt
night they passed a solitary farm
bouse and a mile distant from any
other and bearing an appearance of
n lack of thrift. “There,” said
Uncle Ben, pointing with his whip,
"there's a woman been lying in
that house for morc'n n fortnight,
and she isn’t buried yet.” “Dread
ful,” said a passenger; "tho authori
ties ought to attend to it. Hasn’t
she any friends, and why don’t
they bury her?” “Got friends
enough, but she ain’t dead; she’s
lively as a cricket.”
Only eight cases have been re
turned to the October term of

This letter is addressed to tbe
Republican candidate for Governor
Gen. R. A. Alger, Detroit, Mich.:
Dear Sir—1 have just read your
letter of Oct. 9, exhorting me
“publicly to retract your (my)
statements, as yon have iu your
zeal for the Democratic party, and
the Democratic nominee, spread
them before the whole country.”
When the heat of this canvass has
passed, you will think that such
language borders too near upon
insult to be either just or wise. I
beg you to understand that I have
nothing to do with the truth, or
otherwise, of Mr. Joy’s statements
to me, respecting Mr. Blaine. The
only question is: Did Mr, Joy
make those statements T The tran
sactions between him and Mr.
Blaine, through an intermediary,
may all be mythical; or the inter
mediary might have been an im
postor; or Mr. Blaine’s feelings
may never have been hurt by any
such requests; and Mr. Jov may
never have been shocked at Blaine’s
imputed answer; and Mr. Joy’s
artless feelings being practieed
upon, by this intermediary, he
may have expressed himself too
severely about Mr. Blaine. Let
Mr. Joy and Mr. Blaine settle that
between themselves. I have nothing
to do with all that. Did Mr. Joy
make the remarks in my presence
which I have published t If he
did not, I have lied. If he did,
Joy has lied. There is no Idle
ground. There shall be none.
Either I heard it or invented it.
Mr. Joy’s second telegram to
you makes a languid and ioolish
denial, which I attribute to his not
having seen or understood my
statement. But if Mr. Joy has
seen my statement aod denied it,
or when bo landB in New York be
shall declare that no such conver
sation was held in my presence,
then I have only to say that,
whereas I did not Imagine that
there could bo moro than one con
tinental liar, I am compelled to
think there aro two.
I'lcaso accept this letter as the
only retraction and apology that I
am prepared to make to you, to
Mr. Joy, to Mr. Blaine, and to the >

TES, M? SOM'S,
Just as soon as we can pick, gin
and sell our cotton we will call upon
Tho Clothier Gylos at bis New
Cornor in Americus and purohase
our outfits for tho season.
By tho way, what a revolution
Gyles has caused in the clothing
business, where for years previous
to his opening we never saw a first-
class garment in town, although
we paid prices all the samo that
ought to have bought tbe best
goods in the land. But it remained
for Frank Gyles to step to the
front, knock tho bottom out, and
sell the finest and only perfect fit
ting clothing at figures less than
we used to pay for common ones.
And our peoplo appreciate his vim
and enterprise, for their gratitude
is shown by the daily increasing
throng that occupies his store. In
wild despair, unable to compete [n
prices and styles, other merchants
try to come in at tbo twelfth hour
and mako a sickly attempt to divert
tho grand rush by UluBive adver
tisements of auction goods from
broken concerns. But the people
wont hear any such nonsense. They
don’t stop long enough to even
take a passing glance at these old,
worn-out advertisements, as thoy
arc perfectly posted that auction
clothing, etc , means generally bun
dles of mixed-up Bizes and obsolete
remnants that none who wish to
appear even respectable will wear.
The procession will now move
direct to Gyles tbe Clothier.
Three cheers for Gyles tbe
Clothier ! Hurrah for Gyles the
I Hatter !! A tiger for Gyles tbe

“Have you any roforrenee?”
