The Only' Exclusively Grocery House

;.. DOINGA .


,", 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.


I D high grade Roasted Coffees, I offer Chase S Sanborn's JoodR-too well known to need comment. All the cheaper grades at manufa'turers'price!!!,freight added. Special attention
ill given to selection of Teas,packed In 5 and 10 lb. Caddies from 2U to 75 cents per pound. I carry the finest line In the Stat J.E.Burns' Co.,of Phlladelphla,manufacture my Spices,and
they are sold at Factory: J. ricc_. Absolutely pure goods are ground tJy our SpIce Mllls and Daisey Engine."


Department is complete-Hot only staple and standard good!':-but the very finest California goods of all kinds. I keep everything that is put up in a can; the variety
I*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 o.aJow ft*
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 in August, September and October,I oan saH
at New York prices without freight,and still make H lmnds:)oiue margin on the usual rise in there goods in the fall. The great quantity shipped daily is proof of its success.


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


The suoerlor excellence of the: calabnto'1 Snow Drop" patent Flour needs no comment; it iq used all through the State, and recognized as the "Kin?among Fine Flours.!'! I handle
cheaper grades at l low r price Grits anl maal are sold.at. a. margin of o par cent net.. Sugars and meats. are Handled oa a margin that would send one "over the hills to the poor-house,".
tf alone a living was dependent upon them. .
