Atlanta Constitution, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1890, Atlanta, Georgia iud PAPER CONTAINS 24 Pagea THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. FIRST PART. TOL. XXII. ATLANTA, GA., SUNDAY MOBNlNtf, SEPTEMBER 21, 189O. PRICE FIVE CENTS. S8MG TO-IVSOR ITEM BELOW IS WORTHY YOUR ATTENT Have you seen our Fall Stock yet It is a wonder, a marvel. Its size and variety are something enormous. Pre- vious efforts are far excelled, and to try to describe its vast- Hess within these narrow confines would be treating it unfairly. Plaid goods are a rage this season. To say that are prepared to meet the big demand is putting it very mildly. The Novelty Suits brought from Europe by Mr. High are already the talk of Atlanta. To-morrow we open new things in Dress Goods which, for elegance and style, ill be worth your while stopping to see. About thirty days ago we secured from Arnold, Con- stable Co. the agency in Atlanta for their well-known Monopoly Black Silks. These goods are of foreign make, high grade only, ranging in prices from a yard upward. For durability, lustre, texture and appearance the world produces no superior article. We give a guar- antee as to wear with every yard sold by us. In cheaper Dress Silks the values we offer are unsur- passed, one special number being a 20 in. Black Gros Grain at 99c. a >ard. We make the assertion that as good quality cannot be duplicated for less than a yard. In this department we are fully up to the requirements of the day. The large Fall Stock that we have imported, and now exhibit, comprises the best and newest makes of all the Mourning Goods now on the market. In Priestly's famous Black Dress Goods we show everything they pro- duce. Henriettas from the cheapest to the highest grade, and in Novelty Black Goods the variety we exhibit is so large that it positively claims the inspection of any intend- ing purchaser. LINENS Housekeepers in need of goods in this line should not overlook this department. Below are enumerated a few late arrivals, good values and, con- sidering qualky, are below the market in price Huck Towels, 19x38 inches Cents. Striped Linen Towels, 20x40 inches, Loom Damask Towels, 22x46, Check Linen Doylies at 25 cents per dozen. Crochet Spreads, Marsaills effects, 73 cents. Turkish Bath Towels, 36 inches long, 5 cents each. Check Linen Crash at 74 cents a yard. Turkey Red Damask, 24 cents a yard. In fine Table Damasks and Linen Sets (cloth and nap- kins) we show an assortment of new goods and patterns. The designs were never shown before, and for daintiness could not be improved on. THE WEATHER flfitLY COOLER GROWS; SUMMER SEASON'S DRAWING TO A CLOSE. As the cold weather approaches it be- hooves one to make suitable preparation, and the question now on the public mind is where shall I trade has the most select lot of Dress Goods From whom can I get the best bargain in a pair of fine Blankets and a dozen kindred questions. It is useless'on the pages of this paper to state that we are the only good Dry Goods that our stocks are larger than others and that our prices are lower. Such adver- tisements are money wasted. CLOAKS Our Cloak Department this season shall be our pride. If we ever were prepared to meet the demands of the Cloak trade it is now. We have recently fitted up a handsome Cloak room on ihe-second floor, 25 feet wide by 15O feet and devoted exclusively to the sale of Cloaks and Wraps. The immense quantity of different shapes and the great variety of materials used this season prevent us from enumerating the different sfyles or from advertising prices, but suffice it to say we are In condition to Supply the Multitudes. We have the cheapest of garments and we have the finest. Next week being our open- ing week we solicit your inspection of this mammoth stock. CLOAKS iiiiiinnimimiiiiinuiiiiii iniiiiiiiimiiiuiiiiiiiiillliiliiuui illiiiiiiiiiiiii We are alive to the fact that competition is strong, in Atlanta, and only can supremacy be gained by honest representation, polite at- tention, seasonable goods and moderate prices. As the Fall season is just opening, we have this to say to our patrons: Our stocks were never so large or so well assorted. They have been bought with the most diligent research, and, we think, will compare both in price and di- mensions with those any first-class Dry Goods Store in this our Southern country. FALL OPENING TO-MORROW! On account of mill strikes and delays of transportation, we were rather late in getting in our Fall Stock. The past week they struck us like a cyclone, "ALL AT ONCE." Our orders were placed early, and at the bottom price; possibly this is a reason why the manufacturers were tardy in filling our orders. THE TSiaHPH, 11-4 White at SI BO pair HIGHLAND, 10-4 pair HOUSEHOLD PRIDE, U-4 pair HOUSEKEEPER, 11-4 95 pair We claim the "Housekeeper Blanket" to be the best value in the country, and the others mentioned above are" unexcelled at the price.

Latest and choicest things in Gents' Neckwear.

All our gloves are fitted to the hand, and guaranteed against manu- facturers' imperfections SHOES! The remark is sometimes made That a Dry GrOOClS Store iS HO place tO "buy Shoes." We emphatically refute this argument. From the trade we have had in this depart- ment, and judging from the satisfaction our Shoes give cus- tomers, we are more than certain that the brands of Shoes we carry are the best that money can buy. For instance, our Ladies' O. K. Kid Button Shoe at and our Gents' Calf Congress (or. Button) at These are only two out of hundreds. For variety of style and economy in pricea the Fall Stock we now exhibit is second to none in this market. SPECIAL DISPLAY FALL DRESS GOODS AND CLOAKS TO-MORROW.
