The Trade throughout the State appreciate the fact that I handle Groceries exclusively. ',...: .
All my energies are directed hr one line.' ''''
1 claim to be able to offer special Inducements each of the following Departments \ I


,chigh grade Roasted Coffees,I offer Chase&Sanborn's goods-too well known to need comment. All the cheaper grades nt manufacturers'prices,freight added. Special attention .
Ic gives to selection of Teas,packed in 5 and 10 lb. Caddies fiom 2U to 75 cents per pound. I carry the finest'line in the Statt. J.E.Burns'Co.,of Philadelphia,manufacture my Spices and J
they are sold at Jbactory JLrice Absolutely pure goods are ground by our Spice Mills and Daisey Engine."


Department Is complete-not only staple and standard goods:-but the very finest California goods of all kinds. I keep everything that is put up in a can; the variety
10 wonderful as this is an age ,noted for canned goods. Large consignments are made to me, with instructions to sell at factory prices, with freights. I am In a position to sell as low a*
anyone anywhere,and much lower than many of my competitors.


Great care Is exercised here. I have one of the largest refrigerators In Florida for storing these goods. By purchasing in large quantities August,September and October,I can sel -
at New York prices without freight,and still make handsome margin on the usual rise in thee goods in the fall. The great quantity shipped dally Is proof of Its success.


I handle Potatoes,Onions and Apples,In large quantities. I don't aim at selling cheaper than all others, but do try to sell superior goods; all, therefore, are guaranteed.I .
don't handle cabbages as a specialty.

The superior excellence of the celebrated Snow Drop" patent: Flour needs no comment; It I is used all through the State, and recognized as the King!; among Fine Flours. I handle
eheaper grades at lower prices. Grits and meal are sold at a margin of f per cent. net. Sugars and meats are Handled ou a margin that would send one "over the hills to the poorhouse,"
if alone a living was dependent upon them.


of everything In the Grocery line Is carried by me. I long for the day to como when I will have money enough to carry a stock large enough,constantly on hand,to supply 'the demands -
,instantaneously: ,that are made upon ui9 by the Trade( tlJrotl;hUt the State.: The time will come soon, I trust, and then I promise to the Trade a service so satisfactory in
very respect that it will not be necessary to go beyond Jacksonville. Respectfully, / ,
