A Splendid Firm. .
In this morning’s Times-Recordth
will be found the announcement of the
new firm of Beall & Oakley. These
gentlemen have just moved to Arnericus
from Columbia, Ala., and have opened
up a splendid line of goods in the new*
store house of W. E. Murphey on Lamar
street. They are enterprising men and
have capital to back their business.
Arnericus is glad to have such men as
citizens, and they will surely receive the
patronage they deserve.
It w!!! pay you to call and examine
their beautiful line of goods.
The fact of these gentlemen pulling
up stakes at Columbia and moving to
Arnericus shows how our traffic is
