All merchan dise reduced to prices about one-half its value some goods for less than one-fifth; others for a trifle more than one-half. There's a reason: We must have money. That is why we are selling seasonable, clean goods at less than they can be bought at wholesale prices. This is the last call for cash. We need the money and need it now. That is why prices are cut to the limit. So better buy now; for prices will never be cheaper in this nor any other sale. Weston Mercantile Co. j j j! r 1 residence. Mrs. H.
