my energies are directed In one line.

U wonderful,as this ii 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&atflow; M
anyone,anywhere,and much lower than many of my competitors. \

Great care is exercised here. J have one of the largest refrigerators; in Florida for storing these goods. By purchasing in large quantities in August,September and October,I can ael
at New,York prices without freight,and still make a handsome margin on the usual rise in these 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 superior goods; all therefore, are guaranteed
I don't handle cabbages as a


superior excellence of the celebrated \ Drop" patent Flour needs no comment; it Is used all through the State,and recognized as the King among Fine Flours." I handle
cheaper grades at lower prices. Grits and meal are sold at a margin of 5 i per cent. net. Sugars and meats are bandIed on a. margin that would send one "over the hills to the poor-house,"
If alone a.living was dependent upon them. .
