SURPRISE IS NO WORD To describe the feelings of a great many who first inquire for the Special Reduced price line of Boots and Shoes at DIM Jt GRAY'S. One of our customers asked us a few days ago if we were going to continue to sell goods at the same prices as at pres- ent, and we were compelled to tell the truth and say that it would be impossible to always sell goods at wholesale prices, and sometimes even less, but that we had inaugurated this SPECIAL REDUCED SALE! on certain lines to make room for some new lines. We are making this room fast and have overhauled our stock a second time and have placed several new lines with our special price goods, and as long as they last we can sell you good, honest, solid goods at prices which our competitors can make no claim to offering you. They are going fast, so don't wait until they are all gone. OLNEY GRAY Old Post-office Stand.

Excellent Climate Are advantages to be considered when looking up a home, business location, farm, etc. West Virginia, Maryland and the Shcnanhoah Valley, Virginia, affords these with many more advan- tages. No section of the United States offers superior opportunities, and per- sons seeking a new home should ex- amine these States before deciding upon a location elsewhere.

Owens' singing class at Horeb has come to the end of the term. We understand that his class at this place, which meets every Monday night, is doing well. Weather prophets, of which we have an abundance, are claiming that they have unmistakable signs of an early frost. We are afraid that the geutle- meu base their predictions on something like Wiggins did. Al. Owens and Miss Martha Machling joined hands and hearts for better or worse last Thursday night. Long life and prosperity to Mr. and Mrs. Owens. Those folks who were considerate enough to preserve the numbers of the KPUULIC-AN which contained articles on infectious diseases are to be considered lucky, especially in these days of ty- phoid fever.

Wo do not be lieve it possible for any one to strive harder to please the patrons of his office than Mr. Uhl did. He has the special thanks of the newspaper fraternity. Mr. Edwards has always been a hard working Republican, and we nre glad to see him recompensed. Last Tuesday night, burglars entered the store of Williams Bros, and entirely demolished their safe. They gained en- trance by forcing the doors with a crow bar. As there is no money ever left in the safe over night they got no money, but if they had taken the trouble to open the till they might have gotten about two dollars in change. They liberally helped themselves to the goods taking everything from valises and fine shoes down to five cent pocket books and tooth brushes. They also took some jewelry. A Email tin box the safe, which" they supposed contained the money, was found on the railroad next morning bursted open, but all of the valuable papers were safe. They left an old buttered hat and a loaded revolver as keepsakes, or as means for their identification.
