Haa opened in the Odd Fellow's build
ing a General Merchandise Htore,
which will be known as "The One
Price Cash Store." The name will in
aicato to every one tue principle upon
which the business will be couductcd
one price to all and ca :h on the spot
will absolutely be the rule. ' But,"
says some one, "just let a good respon
sible man go there without the money,
and see if he doesn't get the goods
rather than lose the sale." Don't fool
yourself, Cash is the fallow I deal with
and not a iingle article can leave the
store unless the cash is first deposited
in coin. " Well," aays another, " Mr.
Montague will have to sell goods most
awful cheap if he expects to get cash
every time." Certainly he will have
to sell goods cheap, and the object will
not be to see how much profit he can
realize on his goods, but at how small
a profit he can sell them for cash, be
cause the "nimble dime will earn more
money than the slow dollar."
Every article in the new store will
be marked in plain figures at the low
est living cash prices and it will not be
necessary to ask "Is that the lowest
price?" or "I can do better somewhere
else" or "ow see here Mr. Montaeue.
I want a large bill of goods to-day and
I wane you to come down in your
prices." All such speeches will be of
no avail and will be regarded as a
waste of time and words. One Price!
One Price Absolutely! One price will
be the rule and no exception and it
matters not how few or how many
goods you buy the price will be the
same one price to all and that the
lowest for cash in hand. So please
bear in mind that if yo i .want to save
money by buying your goods at the
One Price Cash Store.it will be'jicees
sary to bring the money along because
I will send the money up this after
noon or to-morrow" will not do, for
the simple reason that goods will be
sold so cheap that the least risk will
not be taken. Here are a few reasons
why it is better to deal at a One Price
1st, There is no time wasted in bick
ering or useless time spent in keeping
2d. You are not compelled to help to
pay somebodies bad debts.
3d. You don't have to be a judge of
goods to get value.
4th. You can send a little child to
the store and get goods at the same
price as if you came yourself.
5th. You will get more goods for
your money. -
6th. The poor and the rich buy at
the same price.
7th. You will get no duns.
It will be useless to quote prices of
other stores as this store will be an in
dependent one price cash store govern- j
ed by its own rule and will be conduct-j
ed on a plan that will be a direct bene
fit to tne MMp!e.
Every effort will la made to treat
the people courteously and every
transaction will be done in a fair and
square manner. Very Respectfully,

A Fatal Accident.
Last Monday some young men were
on a deer stand, about three miles
above Sodaville, wheu Joseph Klum
in handling his gun aecidently dis
charged it, shooting and instantly kill
ing John Huddleson, one shot taki
ing effect in the back of the head and
one in the neck. Thev were occu
pying a stand together, when, about
ten o'clock, their dogs drove up a deer.
Just as it came in sight Klum raised
his gun to fire, but, being wet, it
slipped sideways and was discharged
just as it came in range with tba head
of Huddleson, who was standing near
him. He was taken to his parents, a
spectacle to shock anyone, much less
parents and brothers and sisters. The
deceased was alout twenty years of
age, and was a young man lighly res
pected by those who knew him. The
funeral took place at Lebanon last
Tuesday evening, and there being no
minister present, appropriate and well
timed remarks were made by Mr. C.
B. Montague. " In the midst of life,
we are in the midst of death."
