AMONG THE ADVERTISERS, When you come for ut Grove's. the circus visit re- night, white jottf eofreSptffldeBt wfts enjoying his peaceful sltittitJeP, Some sfleak thtef removed the sCfeefl ffOifl his bedroom winddw and with the aid o! a long stick succeeded ill drawing his pants out through the wiftdow, After going through the pockets he took ftll the small chattge to theahioutit of $3.20. Iti the morning the f>ant8 were found in the bttck yftfd aBd the pocket' book at the back end of the lot militia the money, It was thought by some that it was the work of a local crank but we are of the opinion it was douo by some professional that located Us while retiring for the night. Tim amount was not very much but it it hud been more the result would have beeti the same. Our town has been over* run with tramps for some time and some of them have been hanging around the depot and elevators for three or four weeks getting whatever they could to live on and cooking it along the railroad just east of town, Our city authorities' attention has been repeatedly called to the fact that the tramp element was becoming a nuisance and asked to do something to rid our town of them. Once or twice we know our marshal and nightwatch were ordered to drive them off, which they did. When they presented their bill to the council it was not allowed. It is claimed that we have no ordinance covering the tramp nuisance. We can't help but think our city authorities are largely to blame for allowing so many tramps to harbor around. If there is no ordinance governing such nuisances, why not make one? H I was mayor I would see that it was enforced, and in the words of General Jackson would say: "If I could not find a man to enforce the law, by the eternals I would do it myself." Friday morning Deputy Sheriff Gosgrove arrested a couple'.of fellows hanging around town and brought them before 'Squire Robinson who imposed a fine of ton days hard labor on them. Mr. Cosgrove brought them to the mayor and asked him if he wanted to work them on the streets. He said not, and they were Whenyott buy llotif, not buy the best ? Especially when you eatt get the best—and a choice article It is, too—fof the same mdney that is charged fbf less Wot thy grade.s We startd by ouf ftauf—S6 dd the coil* sumers, They know what they want, and they want Wilson Mills Flour, and will have no other.

SMITH, On Circus Day You will need a pocket knife to cut your way through trie, tent if the lion breaks loose. Who would regret spending a few cents for such a useful article if by so doing he might be: able to save his own life? Think of what a stampede there! will be if the lion does break loose, and think of how many- lives you might save, besides your own, by making an opening in the outer canvas with one sweep of a good sharp knife. We keep just the kind of a knife you would need for that and every other purpose.
