Mr. and Mrs. M. D. Ellis and son,
Floyd, left yesterday for their new
home in Grants Pass, where Mr. Ellis
has purchased one of the leading drug
stores of the city. It is with deep
regret that the people of Dallas part
with this estimable family. Both
Mr. and Mrs. Ellis have long been
prominently identified with all that is
best in Dallas' social life, and they
will be missed in cborcb and society
circles. Mr. Ellis' business record
bas been of the highest character for
honor and integrity, and be fully
deserves tbe snocess he has achieved.
Dallas owes its enviable position as a
live business town and manufacturing
center to men like Mr. Ellis, who
have given freely of their means and
worked unceasingly to secure import
ant industries and publio improve
ments. Fortunate indeed is the town
or city wbose business interests are
in the hands of men of this character.

friends of Mr. and Mrs. Ellison wish
