In our general news column Mr McDonald, manager for the Bible and Tract Depot, on the corner of Esk and Dee street, calls attention to their new stock of calenders and, wall cards. Visitors to town will find, the stock of books second to none, and the very .latest procurable. A ! few prices are quoted, which go to show that they are right. Mr McDonald is to be complimented on the manner in which he conducts his business —both from the firm’s and the public’s point of view. Country visitors will find Covent Garden refreshment rooms just the place to patronise on show days. A 1 large room has been fitted up, and a number of assistants will attend promptly to the wantsi of patrons. The shop is situate at the corner of Dee and Don streets. MrT. Hide has a special notice in this issue to show visitors, and invites those in search of new and original post cards, stationery, books, and general goods to call at his shop in Tay street and have a look round. Ladies will find some very special lines to suit their requirements. Visitors to the show will find it to their advantage to visit McConechy and Co.’s boot establishment, in the Arcade. They have special lines in ladies’, gent’s, and children’s footwear. The prices are the lowest in town, and visitors are asked to ''remember the Arcade boot shop.” Messrs Lillicrap, McVaughton and Co., invite visitors to the show to call and have a look round their warehouse, as they are making a special display of "Dresden” pianos and organs. Easy time payments can be arranged, and no home should be without a musical instrument. The fame of Messrs Lindsay and Co’s sausages is spreading. Orders are coming in from all over the district, and they are having a busy time. Orders are now being booked for Xmas hams and poultry, including turkeys, geese, and young ducks. Their hams secured first prize at Otautau and Thornbury, and were much admired by the public, and we may add they taste equally as well as they look. Try for yourself. A large number of residents are availing themselves of the services of Mr W. J. Mayne, in the capacity of window and carpet cleaner, and any, odd jobs that may be wanted. He is also prepared to undertake the delivery of calendars, etc., in connection with the business. Any one requiring the services of a handy, reliable man should remember the "Mayne,” and drop a note to his address, Princess street, South Invercargill. Mr Mayne works cheaply and expeditiously, and someone has termed him a patent labour-saving machine. Write to-day. The ladies of Invercargill and visitors to the show should read Mrs Manson’s advertisement on another page. The stock is very comprehensive, and includes a choice line of ladies’ cheap blouses and skirts—just the thing for the holidays. A visit, of inspection is cordially invited.
