Our force of accommodating clerks is prepared to give you the best of
attention. It has long been our ambition to have a stock of goods so
complete, ho tastefully arranged and ¡narked down to such reasonable
prices that our patrons could «ee no necessity to send to any outside
city for any article whatsoever. We know we have attained this re
sult. At your doors, as it were, we have laid down a stock of goods
such as has never been approximated in Yamhill eountv, and is
equalled by but few stocks in Portland. All lines carried aro more
complete titan we formerly had room to make them, and much new
stock has been added. A large assortment of Carpets, Linoleums and
Window Shades has just been received, and is opened for the Spring
An immense stock of Dress Goods of the latest jtatterns adorns

merated, in the way of Ladies’ aud Gents’ Ftirnisbings, aro die-

and satistactory choice.
In Men’s and Boy’s clothing we lead any store in Oregon, no mat-
ter what size or style is desired, and we ltuve the best values ever of-
fered in McMinnville, with quality anti price fully equal to the best
bargains in Portland or San Francisco.
Our Ladies’ Millinery is given a dignified apartment of its own,
where the only embarrassment is to choose among so many rich styles.
The lime and opportunity, however, are afforded.
We are grateful for your past patronage, aud respectful!)’ ask that

Dr. Lowe's Sarsaparilla
Needs but to be tried to be thoroughly appreciat
ed. It is not a patent medicine; we have no ob
jection to outlining the formula, reserving detail
only. We make it and know that it will do all
that we claim for it. It restores and invigorates
the whole system. 7 It enriches the blood, and
thereby gives tone and strength to the stomach, ac
celerating the waning appetite. It is an effectual
remedy for rheumatism, and is infallible in cases
of general or nervous debility, loss of appetite and
