BLACK GOODS are in the next outer circle

But one thing we ought te remind you ef: We may appear te be at
a disadvantage when we are net, because of certain tactics sometimes
employed, which we de net care te use, viz., the pretending te make re
ductions when none are made. We use reductions te clear stocks. That
is perfectly honorable, and it is necessary in a large business. The losses
thereby incurred, though sometimes considerable, are trifling in compari
son with the benefit te remaining stocks.
New then, anyone who will take measures te find out where the
lowest prices are, compare sample with sample, price with price, will find
we are net a whit behind ANYBODY, net even in a single item, se far as
we knew; and that we are below EVERYBODY en almost everything.

Sights and Sounds in the Bay State
Tidings Frem Texas and an Invita
tion te Emigrate Thither.
Dr. Greene en a Visit te the Bay State.
Newtonville, Mass., June 29, 1880.
I have new been here two weeks mak
ing my head or night quarters at my
brother's beautiful home in this town,
"W. C. Greene, attorney, which is one of
the suburbs of this exceedingly interesting
city. A full description of the works of
interest we have already visited would oc
cupy one-quarter of all your pages. Let
me briefly enumerate a few of them. First
is Mr. Baker's (of the firm of Grever &
Baker's 'sewing machines) gardens, houses,
barns and museum at Wcllesley. The
grounds occupy probably CO acres, laid
out with most magnificent lawns in vari
ously divided lets. Seme of the plats are
as smooth as a mirror, and the grass is cut
once a week, as evenly as though done
with a razor. The flower departments are
unique, in the shape of hearts, cresses,
open books, stars, circles and triangles,
with every variety of rare and costly
flowers. The barn is handsome, and prob
ably cost mere than $25,000 ; en the out
side arc numerous paintings of horses and
animals, done by eminent painters. At
tached te the stable is an observatory
about 100 feet high, about 7 rooms, one
ever another, each one containing rare
paiutings, engravings and curiosities,
with different colored glass windows for
you te leek out en tue ucautttui views
around hills, weeds, artificial ponds,
het houses, &c. A few miles away
are the wonderful grounds of Mr. Uunne
ville, covering perhaps 100 acres,
probably worth with all its attachments,
of buildings, conservatories, nurscries,&c.,
$250,000. Nothing ever shown in a fairy
scene by mortals could give you an idea of
the remarkable arrangement of the trees,
spaces, lets, embankments, &c. I cannot
describe it ; I never saw anything like it in
my life. Thousands of evergreen trees,
artistically changed into hundreds of dif
ferent forms. Seme perfect cones three
feet up and twenty feet high ; ethers
square ; ethers a cone with an inverted
cone at the top ; ethers with a square hole
right through the top ; the hedges, hun
dreds of feet long,trimmed as accurately as
though done with a square and compass,
all shapes, triangular, square, oval. &c. ;
then arches of evergreens ever thirty feet
high, shaped like the triumphal arch of
NapolceD in Paris. I find it no use te at
tempt any further description ; I'll only
add that they set out in their grounds
every spring ever 40,000 common and rare
Then there arc a thousand ether costly
houses and grounds open te the inspection
of strangers. I'll briefly give you as they
come te my mind ether objects of attrac
tion. The eldest college in America at
Cambridge, with at least twenty buildings
en the grounds, some of them immense
and very expensively constructed. Then,
adjoining, the celebrated museum of
Agassiz,"Vashingten's headquarters in the
Revolution of 1776. The houses of Long
fellow, "Washington Allston ; then the
observatory and astrenmical instrument
manufactory of Alvan Clark & Sens.
I saw an object glass there which
they are making for a telescope, about
thirty inches in diameter, that he had made
for him in Paris, and the first cost was
$1,100. Twe men were grinding it. Mr.
Clark told me it takes from three te six
months te finish, and when completed he
gets $5,000 for it. As you knew, the largest
and finest telescopes in the world am
made here. He recently completed one
for the Russian government, for which he
received $50,000. Then there are in Bosten
the Technological and Natural History
society's museum, Kimball's museum,
Faneuil hall, or the cradle of liberty ; Fan
cuil hall market, about one-fifth of a niile
long ; the tea wharf where the Yankee In
dians threw overboard the tea ; the old
state house where the first bleed was shed
at the commencement of hostilities be
tween the colonies and England, called
wrongly Bosten massacre, which occurred
in sight of the above building en
King (new State) street, en March 5th
1770. Then there is the common right in
the heart of the city with ever
seventy-five acres of play grounds. Then
comes the navy yard, Bunker nill
monument, then the beaches en the
harbor or ocean, where you can
see thousands in bathing. Steam cars
take you for ten and five cents te any of
them. At Nantucket the beach is nine
miles long. When you near a beautiful
view of the great Atlantic ocean the waters
come dashing in at intervals of a -few mo
ments, caused by the ever pulsating waters
twice a day. The waters come washing up
as though they would submerge all the
land, but by the fiat of Ged they step
every day at certain boundaries and grad
ually go out again. Ne one can contem
plate half the views of sight in and around
this city in three months and de them jus
tice. C. A. Greene, M. D.
Hew An Old Lancasterian Receives His
Round Reck, Williamson Ce.,Texas,
June, 30, 1880.
Almest twenty years with their
bright and dark shades have passed away
since I reamed ever the lovely city of Lan
caster, which is yet fresh in my memory.
trusting that the Intelli
gencer will continue te prosper and shine
like an electric light amid darkness. I
would sooner dispense with the most nec
essary household article than be deprived
of glancing ever its columns.
At times my heart is filled with grief
when the news reaches me that one of my
old friends has been severed from the chain
of friendship once se firmly linked togeth
er. Peace te these departed ones who arc
slumbering beneath the sod ; te these who
are yet inhaling the pure atmosphere at
Lancaster, I join bauds te express our grat
itude te the Supreme Being for guiding us
safely te the declining stage of human life.
Herace Greeley once said, "Yeung man go
West." I say, "Come Seuth te Texas."
Williamson county possesses advantages
unsurpassed by any in the state. The soil
is of a black, waxy nature, and frejn three
te twelve feet deep, which can be bought
from two te four dollars per acre, unim
proved. The improved land runs from
four te twenty dollars per acre, according
te location. The principal productions
are cotton, corn, wheat, eats, barley,
Irish and sweet potatoes, and in fact any
thing adapted te the climate. While Wil
liamson is classed among the agricultural
counties, yet the stock interest is net ne
glected. Of late years improved horses,
cattle and sheep have been successfully
raised, paying handsomely for the invest
ment. Grass is found in abundance
throughout the county, the winter being
mud, tnerelere lecd them only during a
short season of the year.
The International and Great Northern
railway is running through the ceuuty from
east te west, giving us convenient facilities
for disposing of our surplus products. The
population will number 1,500 and I can
conscientiously assert that nowhere in this
bread land can be found a mere moral aud
Every community is building up institu
tions for the elevation and progress of
mankind. Churches of every denomination
and secret societies flourish throughout
the land. The school system is perhaps
net se perfect as in elder settled countries,
although several of high standing and imp
utation are flourishing in our midst. The
principal towns arc Round Reck, George
town, Liberty Skiff, Bagdad and Florence,
of which the first named takes the lead, it
being located en the main trunk of the I.
and G. N. railroad, at a distance of
eighteen miles from the capital of the state.
Scarcely four years age the pres
ent town site was well-known te
sportsmen as a desirable hunting
place. Deer and antelope were seen
in droves where te-day stand many im
posing structures and neat dwellings
with a population of 1,500. Time nor
space will net permit mc te give you a de
scription in detail of our prosperous coun
ty and little city. Suffice te say that the
future prospects arc bright, and the day is
close at hand when our sister cities will
leek upon Round Reck with an envious
eye. I would call the attention of my
friends and all these who are seeking
homes in this sunny clime te the fact that
there arc many thousand acres that can he
bought cheap, aud en joed terms in this
county. Yeu will hear from me again at
an early date. Our people are rejoicing
ever the nomination of Gen. Hancock.
Three cheers for Gen. Hancock and best
wishes te your paper.
