We Are Bio Talkers.
And we have a right to be. When
we commenced business something
over four years ago, we also commen
ced to talk big and act big, ’til long
ago we’ve built up a big business with
a big trade. We relied solely, princi
pally and bodily on our own resources.
And we hesitate not to tell openly and
above board ihat our business, as far
as we know, was built on an honest
plan—free from lies, theft and penu
riousness. And now we are comfort
ably fixed in our new place of business.
We have bought, and moved into the
two story brick structure known as
C. C. Holmes building, lately vacated
by J. R. Deavours, proprietor of the
Penny Racket. We can’t help talk
ing as talking made us, and we have
an, uncontroling desire to expatiate
and assert at times, when left free,

nothing and retort back, “Fiddlers to
your holes.” Wc brought a site of
stuff with us in our moving and, in a
measure, we are going to slaughter
some things. We wish for you and
yours well, and will expect you soon

To Our Friends and
Owing to the fact that we had a great deal of trouble
last year with cotton at our free warehouse, in having no
storage room, and cotton being left exposed to Fire, Rain,
Thieves &c., we thought it best for ourselves and our friends
to procure a warehouse in which cotton would be safe, and
insurance nominal, and all the buyers anxious to buy there
at any time, We are fortunate enough to procure the A\ur
phev Brick Warehouse near the depot, and will operate it
during the coming season- Our Mr. F. M. Stafford will have
entire controll of the warehouse and will give it his entire time
and attention. Our long experience in the cotton business
and our superior facilities tor buying and placing cotton,
places us in position to merit your patronage, your cotton
will always be handled to best advantage. Our buyer will be
on the spot and see that every bale brings the highest pos
sible price. Every courtesy will be extended you and every
care will be taken of your interest.
We have engaged Mr. James L. Hunt as scalesman and
Mr. A. W, Baggerly as salesman, they, as well as ourselves
will be glad to see you at our warehouse.
We are against all trusts and combines and cannot help
fearing the round bale scheme. They have money in great
abundance and if they could rid this country of all the square
bale presses and all the compresses, they could and we be
lieve would bleed this country to death in the way of roy
. They make us fair promises now, but we are afraid of
any set of men that will not sell their machines, but hold
them, and demand royalty which we believe will grow lar
ger and larger as the square bale is displaced. With the
light and knowledge before us we advise our people to stick
to the square bale. We want to say however to those that
adopt the round bale that we will be glad to handle it at
121-2 cents per bale. All cotton insured free to the
Bring us your cotton and let us demonstrate to you that
we can benefit you.
Don’t forget we are at the Murphey Brick Warehouse
near the depot.
We also have lots of goods of all kinds over at the store
and will be glad to see yOu ther-e.

In thanking our friends for the very liberal patronage given us during
our first season in Barnesville we wish to say that we are in shape to offer
them far greater inducements this fall. In'the Rogers’ stock that we bought
at £ price, we find that it was made up very largely of Fall and Winter
goods -and just here is where short crops and low priced cotton can be
made to even things up. To this stock we have added by judicious buying
all the new things in vever line. Hence, we say confidently, that no house
in this section is in shape to compete with us in styles or in prices.
