About September first we shall move into
our new store, :it the old stand, Barlow Block
Public Square, where we shall open the most
elegant assortment of goods in our lino 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
Sowing 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
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
is limited. Come one, come all, and don’t
fail to come early.

The October tlections*
The elet-tion in Oniu and Writ
Virginia on yesterday leaves the
November bailie yet to be fought
The Democrats here never ex
pected lo carry Ohio, and have nev
er had any right t» expect it.
They made the light in that slate
for the sake of discipline, and they
have won ail that they coul I have
hoped for. We have never claim
ed the siale, and oor opinion baa
been that the republican majority
would be even larger than it has
proved to be. If tbe republicans
unn ilo no more after the supreme
> ll.irtM they have made in this state
Unit is steadily and steadfastly re
publican, those is reason lo hope
that they cannot bold even tbeir
slender insjority in tbe November
battle, when their resources must
he scattered through a dozen
The election in Wort Virginia
shows,beyond a doubt, that tit
dcm'icruts may eount with cer
tainty on every southern state.
This assured, the formula of na
tional democratio vio orv ia simple
and eare. The eleetorai rote, of
ilio south, with the voles of New
York and Ind ana, will elect Cleve
land. We are confident that New
York will go democratic, and by a
large itajoiitr. Governor Cleveland
has proved himselfstrongeriban his
pai ly in that state, and he has an
independent republican constituen
cy 'list will m ire than otf.ct any
dr fiction in New York city. He
has the .llenl vote of New York
lieynnd the shadow of a douo*,and
this vole decidrs every election in
which it is called out. As fur In
dians, it ha* never failed to stand
by Uov.rnor Hendricks. It Is
rt-lisldy democratic by from 5,000
to 12 000, and ft will not fail its
faeoriieson in this crisis. Oui-
side of Indiana, the democrats will
carry New Jersey and Connecticut
in our opinion.
Our .peciil from New York In
dicate! that the democrats will
open s vigorous and hopeful and
sjstemslic campaign at once. They
will never waver or falter until tba
list hallo 1 , is east in November.
The fight for honesty against raa-
clay .for the |ie«plesgain>l thieves
cannot lie lulled or ob«li noted by
i he fact that the republicans have
carried a state that they have al
ways eanied when they nc- ded It.
The fight will now he transferred
from a sure republican stale to two
democratic stales, and tbe res lit
in New York and Indiana will
show that the republicans have
lust steadily since the day they
nominated a man who was below
even the corrupt standard of tbeir
