The Times

Thursday, June 20, 1901

Roe SHORT has a fine line of Groceries and Canned Goods, Leader and Big B flour, which are known by everyone to be good brands. Salt Pork, 11 cents. He will close out a lot of tinware close to cost. Therefore big bargains in these goods, Be sure to see him when you wish to buy or sell eggs or poultry.

Will duplicate Ardmore Prices. I am aware that in order to sell goods in this country I must meet prices made at Ardmore and other railroad points. On some things I will do better. I can afford to do this because my expenses are nothing compared to those of men in business on the railroad.
I handle nearly everything needed on a farm or in a family; Dry Goods, Notions, Clothing, Boots, Shoes, Hats, Caps, Groceries, Hardware, Tinware, Harness, Etc.
Call in and compare my prices with any railroad town. Don't waste your time in going to the railroad because time is money. Some good tents for sale cheap. Respectfully, E. L. MARTIN, Mannsville

LIPS was not a good swimmer, and hampered by clothing, was struggling under swift currents thirty yards below. MARTIN saw LIP'S danger and knowing that he could not help him, swam down towards him, at the same time calling his horse by the familiar name Fritz, which he had repeated but a few times, when the animal took to the water and swam out to him near enough for LIPS to catch hold of the his tail and be taken safe to land.
