tertained the members of tho
Jolly 'Steen club ut their homo
on East 10th street Wednesday
evening, the St. Johns members
making tho trip by autos. Tho
evening was spent in a delight,

H. F. Clark, the well known
furniture man, has purchased
tho stock of the St. Johns
Furniture store on Philadelphia
street, und has taken possession
of the same. It is Mr. Clark's
intention to later on merge the
new purchase with his big stock
at the corner of Charleston and
Jersey streets, but for the time
being will operate the two
stores. Manager Marlett states
that the reason for selling the
store, which was enjoying a
irood and increasing patronage.
is owing to the fact that one
of his partners is now in Uncle
Sam's Naval service, and the
probabilities are that he will
soon be called to the service.
Mr. Ulark has gained quite a
reputation as a successful furni
ture man, and is doing a large

It is safe in our bank. Our bank takes an interest in
its pepositors and helps them.
