The Only Exclusively Grocery HouseDOINGA


The Trade throughout the State appreciate the fact that I handle Groceries exclusively.All .
my energies are directed In one line.
l claim to be able to offer special inducements in each of the following Departments.


S n high grade Roasted Coffees, I offer Chase & Sanborn's goods-too well known to need comment. All the cheaper grades at manufacturers' prices, freight added. Special attention
LB given to selection of Teas, packed In 5 and 10 lb. Caddies from 20 to 75 cents per pound. I carry the finest line. in the State. J.E.Burns' Co.,of Philadelphia, manufacture my Spices, and
.they are sold at Factory Prices. Absolutely pure goods are ground by our Spice Mills and "Dalse Engine."


Department is co'mplete-not only staple and standard goods-but the very finest California goods of all kinds.I I keep everything that Is put up In a can; the varietyIs
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 as
anyone,anywhere,and much lower than many of my competitors. t


Great care Is exercised here. I have one of the largest refrigerators in Florida for storing these goods. By purchasing in larp. sties in August, September and October, I can sel
at New York prices without freight, and still make a handsome margin on the usual rise in these goods in the fall. great


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 guaranteedI
don't handle cabbages as a specialty.


The superior excellence of the celebrated Snow 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 per cent. net. Sugars and meat are handled on a margin that would send one "over the bills to the poor-houae,"

If alone a living was dependent upon them.


Figs, Dates, Prunes, Table Nuts, Raisins, Citron, Currants, Cherrls, Evaporated Apples, Fancy Candy, Cranberries, Lemons, Fancy Crackers, etc. .,."
