Doumit tiie entire wnoiesaie
stock of Messrs. Rietrel, Scott
& Lo., (retiring lrom business).
We are now compelled to give
possession ol the premises, No
333 Market street, and this has
lorced us to move the goods up
to the retail store. 1 hose who
recall the great size of the whole
sale store, built by that famous
old Philadelphia merchant, Mor
ns L. Hallowell, will understand
what an enormous stock was to
be moved and provided for some
where, somehow. We brought
it here; but it crowds us so, that
there is nothing left for us to do
but break from our rule and
make an extra and forced sale,
n ten years we have never done
such a thing but once three
Our regular sales are always
arge, but tne present emerg
ency requires an extraordinary
sale, as we are utterly unable to
properly accommodate so many
goods under our roof. Al
though we sold many ot the
Kiegel goods in the wholesale
stock, so many remain that with
tne subsequent purchases we
find it Impossible to even store
them well in the portions of the
new building now completed.
The best way out of the diffi
culty is to sell down; to mark
the goods at such prices that
you must take them in justice
We shall therefore sell from
this wholesale stock and from
our retail stock at special, and
in many instances sacrificintr
prices, until we gam the desired
On Monday morning we be
gan the great sale, and now offer
many of the greatest bargains
in staple and lancy dry goods
and other articles that we have
It must not be supposed that
every thing we have in the store
will come to the under price;
the loss would then be too
great. 1 here will be enough to
set you to buying whether you
want the goods or not, and
enough to keep the sale going
for many days, as all the lots
can't be put on the counters at

Every Lady has a natural
pride in her table and next to a
good meal, which is an estab-
iibiicu liuuubbiey iu ivucp tnc man
of the house in a good humor,
comes the adornment of the ta
ble. In this respect handsome
silver ware has no equal and the
great decline m prices has placed
in it the reach ot all. Uwing to
the great demand for reliable
goods, we have recently added
to our stock a lartre line ol
Rodgers quadruple plated ware,
Tea sets, Butter dishes, Table
casters, Pickle casters, Syrup
cups, Cake baskets, nerry dishes,
Card stands, Ice pitchers, Cups,
Individual casters, Napkin rings,
Table, Dessert and Tea spoons,
knives and porks, print knives
and Nut Picks, in plain, ivory
and pearl handles with and witlv
out cases, in such a variety o
patterns we cannot (ail to suit
vou. In selecting our stock
our aim is to buy the 'jest goods,
such as we can warrant just as
we represent them We buy
direct from the factory anl sell
as low as the quality will per
mit. We are not in the mark
et, for competition with low pri
ced goods, but will refund the
money lor any article sold which
Is not as we represe.it it. We
have been liberallv rewarded in
our sales for oureff rts, and are
getting new goods every week,
which we take pleasure in hav
ing inspected. Owing to the
high reputation ot the genuine
Rodgers ware, unscrupulous
dealers are continua"y resorting
to fraudulent meth ids to sell
their wares under the name of
Rodgers and parties running
through thecountry peddling,
representing themselves as tra
veling for Rodgers, are simply
impostors and their wares cheap
