Sept. 25th. On that day the sale of the

was so great that the doors had to be
locked to enable the clerks to wait on
those fortunate enough to get inside in
tbe first rush. Afterwards people were
admitted in batches of ten or twelve, ac
cording to epace room. They etill con
tinue to be very busy in that store. Mr.
Redmond's reputation for carrying good
goods together with the slash made in
prices, we presume is the cauee.
