Our buyers just returned from
market, where they replenished ur
stock in all lines at former jobber's
prices. We are able to assure our
friends and patrons that we will offer
goods at former BED ROCK prices
although all lines are on the verge of a
stiff advance. Many have already ad
vanced. We are happy to announce
that our unusual facilities for buying in
large quantities and for spot cash will
enable us to mention 1899 prices in
1900. We therefore hope to see the
crowds at the Big Stork continue. An
inspection of the Dry Goods, Carpet,
Furniture, Queensware, Boot and Shoe
and Grocery Departments will con
vince you that you cannot afford to miss
the Big Stork when buying anything
in our line. Our dry goods will begin
to arrive this week and other lines
about ten days later.

Ivory Soap costs a little more, but it
takes less to do the work, and how much
whiter the clothes are when they have been
washed with it.
A WORD OF WARNING. There are many white soaps, each rep
resented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory';" they ARIZ NOT, but like all
counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of the genuine. Ahk for
"Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.

Echoes from Pulpit and Platform, or Living
Truths for Heart and Head, by D.
It is thu prime object of this uuw and
fplondiilly illustrated volume toper
puuialo for all time tho great and liv
ing tiiiths tuiighl b the world famous
evangelist, Jwight L Moody, as exem
plified in his platform woik It is ,hu
only voluiiiu that contains the best and
ripest thoughts of his later yeais, just
as he proclaimed them from tho pulpit
nnd the platform when ho was at tho
very height of his fame, and in tho full
matuiity of his powers.
This volumo is 1) wight L. Moody in
print. Here are given his best thoughts,
hit most touching stories of deepest
pathos, hit most thrilling anecdotes
and incidents!-together with hundreds
of personal experiences that ho so oft
en and effectively told on tho platform.
Ho played upon tho feelings of an nil
dience as with an enchanter's wand,
at one time filling their lieaits with
gladness, at another time blinding
their eyes with turns. At his bidding
hearts wei" melted, and strong men
as well as sensitive women, wept tears
of coinpassioti, were aroused to indig
nation oi moved to laughter, in spite
of evety elT'Ut to control then feel
tug''. In l lit-' volume all these lemai k
ahic qualities ate retained. Hut when
ever lie told a story of mirth or miiow
it was always to illustrate a great and
living tiuth and in this volume thetiu
truths t-taud out as beacon lights.
It also contains a complete story of
Mr. Mooilv's life and career from tiio
cradle to the grave, by Rev. Charles F.
(ioss, 1) D , who f jr live years was his
assistant nnd co-worker, nnd who at
Mr Moody's urgent request, was pas
tor of Mr. Mood j 's church in Chicago.
Every phase of his eventful life is hero
portrayed by I he ono mnn abovo nil
others who was chosen by Mr. Moody
himself as his fellow laboicr, aud tho
pastor of his own church.
It also contains an introduction by
Rev Lomau Abbot, 1), D. No higher
compliment could bo paid to thu value
of this volume than tho fact that tho
foremost living American preacher
should write a lengthy introduction to
it. It is the only book on Mr Moody
for which Dr. Abbott hns written.
This unique volume .stands peerless
and alone, foi there Is no other like it.
It mii'-t not be confounded with any
meiu "Lifo of Mootly" so-called; it oc
field absolutely alono. It
gives what no biography alone con
tains, the best and latest thoughts, tho
living, breathing woids of the great
evangelist. It is inigeiy autobiograph
ical, for no person can portray Mr.
Moody's life and its wondeiftil experi
ences so well as he himself has done in
Itis woids in lliis volume.
It contains a fine steel plate portrait
of Mr. Moody, from a photograph, and
other portraits at vat ions stages of his
career. Hut the prime feature of its
splendid illustiations is the sctiesof
handsome full pngu photogravure
plates, from ci iglnal paintings made by
emineir.nrtists expressly for this book.
They illiiBtrato many of Mr. Moody's
woudorful personal experiences, in
many of which ho himsolf was tho cen
tral tiguro. There- is no other book at
all to bo compared with it in illustra
tions. Wo do not know when 010 pages
have givon us more genuine pleasure.
If wo spenk warmly of tho book, it is
because it richly desot ves it It is sold
only by ngents, and as might bo ex
pected, it is meeting with a largo sale.
Put it into your homes. It will bo read
over and over again by old and young,
with ptcasurn nnd lasting piolil.nnd

to son, and mother to daughter, as tho
