WhiU there it no immediate danger of the
spread of i-mall pox in this town, it is well to
take every precaution lo prevent it from get
ling nny loothold. There are rainy cue-) in
Pblladephia and either places, and thedlirne
may easily be brought here by strangers. We
would therefore advise the following course to
be puruid. Ltt everybody b vaccinated. The
town authorities should require this to bo
done, and appoint some physician lo whom the
poor ran go at the expense of the loan, and
be vaccinated. Any one who is taken sick
should be very careful not to go out of the
houre unlil sstlefied of the nature of thet
dUease. If it should bo small pox it mijth
easily be communicated lo others. An ounce of
prevention is better than a pound of cure.

grey horse. The animal being rathtr high
siriinc, the ricielesa homier over drove him,
and the next morning Ibe horse waifmnd
dead in his stall. This of course caused the
dihChari!o of tl e hnnbr, nhostarttd out, lak

ever, w i recovered at Stoik'on. Th" loss of
his best team, and one if 'he mo-t showy in

that Ihey.should get up a sleighing parly. All
were unanimously of the opinion lhat horses
were absolutely necessary to take a slegh ride,
but how to procure them without much ex
penditure of wealth was what perplexed their
fertile bruins. Of course, silver was plenty
with them, but remembering the old saying
"Economy is wealth," ihey had determined to
economize this year, to resume "as il werf;" and

at Oak Hall.
There never was any--where
before, so far as we
know, such a sale of clothing1
as is now going on at Oak
Hall, taking up the whole
ground floor. A hundred
thousand dollars' worth of
good clothing, nearly all of
it new and fashionable, all of
it well made and of good
materials without exception
(for we make no other) is
being sold at prices which
bring loss instead of gain.
Clearing sales occur at the
close of every season ; but
they commonly arc sales of
broken assortments and odd
garments, and of small quan
tities. Here toward the end of
our most successful season
we arc clearing out what
ever, for any cause, has
shown signs of being slow.
Thousands of whole suits
and overcoats and odd gar
ments as well.
Now the sole reason for
selling this mass of valuable
clothing, without even an at
tempt at.profit, is that stated
above, which may be put into
different words, thus : To get
our stock into the most at
tractive condition, without
regard to immediate profit.
And so, while this sale is
going on, the choicest, most
approved, most successful,
clothing we have is up stairs.
The prices there are not re
duced at all. This sale will
hurt that while it lasts, be
cause the clothing in the
bargain room is extremely
good. For this reason we
want it short ; and to make
it short, the prices are low.
Bring back promptly what
you don't want at tne price.
You can order by letter,
or buy here, according to
your own convenience. On
receipt of a letter from you,
will send the means of tak
ing your own measure. Then
you can tell us what you
want, near enough so that
we can take the risk of,suit
ing youjT' '
