Now Ready at the Up-to-Date Store of FRANK A: CRAM'S. The new goods were never so rich in appearance and were never so LOW PHICED as they will be this season at this store. - Our cash system permits us to take every advantage of the market as we sell for cash we are enabled to buy With cash, thus insuring our increasing list of customers the best goods produced for the least possible cost. We own every staple we will require this this year at prices based on 8c cotton, and no matter who raises prices on these goods we will not, as we have bought and paid for them at the lowest cash price, and can sell cotton goods as cheap as most merchants can buy the same goods for, all remarks to the contrary notwithstanding. We are going after the biggest year's business we have ever known, and have the prices to offer as inducement to you to help us swell the grand total. Our expenses are the lowest that exist. Our goods are all sold for spot cash. We buy everything for spot cash. When we sell 12 pairs of shoes we get the money for every pair. Can we sell the shoes cheaper than the man who sells 12 pairs and gets paid for 10 pairs, and loses the price of two pairs? Who pays for the two pairs that some one failed to pay for? You are all too good business men and women not to know that those wjio pay for the shoes they get, also pay for .the shoes which some one else got, but did not pay for. The merchant can't loose it. His business must show interest on the investment, so he must charge more for goods than the cash store sells them for. A trial is convincing. NOTE A complete stock of Butterick Patterns on hand.

Mayes from the committee on streets and public property reported the condi tion of the streets to be perhaps the worst in the history of the city, but could sug gest no remedy until the weather be comes more propitious. Bailey, of the health committee, re ported an inspection of the city this week and that he found the sanitary condition of the municipality much like that of Havana, Cuba, at the time of American occupation. He seemed to think we had too many Queen Anne fronts with Mary Anne back yards for a continuous felicitous state of health in the city, that unless we accomplish a renovation in certain quarters we are liable to come up against everything from measles to bubonic plague during the heated term approaching. Like his distinguished comrade from the street committee, he could see no relief until after the effects of the vernal equi nox has worn off of the weather de partment and Observer Beals begins to disense sunshine instead of rain.
