Messrs Smith. a n d La mg, the up-to-date ironmongers, believe in keeping their wares before the public, and the decorated windows are pictures, and are admired bj passeisbv. Their stock of silverware, ironmongery, furniture, crockery, tools, etc., is very large, and the goods are all ’ of the latest patterns. Patrons would do well to inspect these goods before placing orders outside the town. Mr T. Crockett, agent, Bluff, has a number of choice building sites for sale, and a desirable 7-roomed house, commanding a splendid view, together with 2-aere section. The price asked is only £475. Even as a speculation this property is very valuaible. Off with the old and on with the new. Messrs Thomson and Beattie (Ltd.) are busy opening out Autumn and Winter shipments, and as usual they are quite up in value, variety, and fashion to the standard. Inspection is cordially invited. Mr C. H. Roberts, architect, Esk street, invites tenders for the erection of the Isolation Hosjutal at Ivew. It is to be built in brick, and tenders close on Thursday, March 7. I-Ie also invites tenders for the erection of a septic tank at Woodlands for the dairy factory in that place. Altogether Mr Roberts is having a busy time, and it is gratifying to know that his services are in such demand.
Young- couples about to marry would do well to remember that they can -have first-class wedding - cakes made at from £1 Is upwards at Eaeside's restaurant, in Esk street. There is a sharp demand for their Bermaline bread and small cakes for “at homes'" and afternoon teas. The secret of their success is care in preparation and first-class ingredients.
N.ow that the winter season is approaching it is well for the inhabitants of this district to be prepared for the wet weather. Messrs A. Masters- and Son announce that they have rainproof coats on sale at the remarkably low price of 22is 6d each. These are tailor-made, and guaranteed to fit like a glove. One might give much higher prices, and not be nearly so well pleased as with Masters' 22s 6d rain coats.
If a business man goes to a lot of toother decorating his window, tout forg-ets to clean the window itself, his time is lost to a certain extent. Clean windows go a long- way towards attracting- pktolic attention, besides 'giving- more light and a cheery appearance. The same in schools. The children can’t do such good work if the windows are darkened toy dust and dirt. Now, it has occurred to us that there is a man in this town who undertakes that class of work at very reasonable rates. Merchants, school committees, or private householders should communicate with Mr •W. J. May no, Scott street. South Invercargill, and he will be ready to undertaWe the work at very short notice.
Town and country residents should note that Messrs Topp and Co., railway hairdressing saloon, are in a position to cater f Q r their requirements in hairdressing, shaving, and tobacco, etc. They are making special concessions to regular customers, and. it will be to the interest of all to patronise their up-to-date saloon. Country friends will find the saloon a convenient port of call, and their patronage is appreciated.
A woman’s idea of a perfect gentleman is any man who will agree with her. Visitors to Hr T. Hide's fancy goods and stationery shop will find everyone agreed that the prices are remarkably low anil the value given the best in town.
r Hhe Philadelphia Novelty Co., in the Arcade, publish some sound advice in reference to old limes, etc., which, if acted upon, will bring .toy to the home and peace and comfort to their patrons.
Bach man's own duty is the first thing most important to him. Your duty is to purchase, an up-to-date Edison phonograph and records for the home, and give yourself, family, and friends pleasure, and enjoyment at a small expense. Mr Hanson, of the Phonograph Supply Store, in Arcade, can fit you out, or repair phonographs or records. Mise reading is important, for reading fills the brain. The public .will find Messrs Ihllicrap, McXalighten and Co.’s shelves loaded with the latest and best books on the market.
A good reliable watch for £1 Is should be sufficient to tempt those who are not in possession of these useful little articles. Such a watch can be purchased at Mr N. J. MRein’s, in Dee street. Mr Rein goes a step further, and guarantees it for one year, and the public need have no fear on that score. Although the guarantee only covers one year there is no reason why the watches should not be as good at the end of twenty years as they ai'e when sold. These lines are worth special attention, and Mr Rein means what he advertises.
Too many men waste valuable talking about things they are going to buy, while the busy housewife acts promptly and steers a course for the corner of Tay and Kelvin sts., where S. C. Holmes and Co. are now holding a clearing sale. Everything has been reduced, and there arc loads of useful as well as ornamental goods displayed in the windows and lovely choice" articles inside at prices unheard of before in Invercargill- Everybody welcome. Mr J. McMeekin, local manager of the Westport Coal Company, inserts an advt in this issue, which should commend itself to business men and housewives who appreciate a rattling good clean coal at a low price. In addition to their Coalbrookdalo coal they supply all coals that reach this market, also coke and firewood at rockbottom prices.
Messrs Herbert; Haynes and Co-"S extensive clearing sale doses to-day, when special bargains will be offered. Those who have visited the sale and made good purchases should call again. To those who have not called yet, they should embrace this opportunity and they will not regret it.
Messrs Win. Todd and Co. give particulars of their sale in the Rialto to-day.
It is in the power of every man to be rich provided he is contented. However, he cannot be contented if ho wears ill-fitting, ugly boots. One of tihe best known producers of contentment ate McConcchy and Co. 9 boots. The fit brings contentment, and the prices bring riches. Step right into the Arcade, and they will make you happy. It is extraordinary that some men affect to know everything, and yet he so deficient as not to Ikiiow where Tom Ekenstccn’s cheap shop is. It is our intention, in this par., to direct the whole bargain-loving public of Southland to his establishment, two doiors north of Messrs J. A. Mitchell and Co.;s sale yards.
Someone has said that women are strange creatures, and you would think it was true, if it were not for the fact that they know a cheap article when they' see it. 3>i Messrs A. Noble and Co.’s shop in Dec street, opposite the Southland Club Hotel, he is having quite a large patronage from the gentle sex in search of cheap glassware. Mr Stephen Hunter, land and finance agent. Esk street (near the Arcade; publishes a lot of properties on sale by him. He has a large range of houses and sections in all parts of the district. and anyone wishing to secure a farm ca\n also have .several choice properties placed under offer. See Mr Hunter at once.

In this issue he inserts a special advertisement in refer eft ce to a nug’g'et.y little farm at Spring Hills, containing 300 acres. The property is well worth buying, and Mr Scandrett can arrange easy terms for purchasers if necessary'. Those who love truly cannot be parted. The majority of residents have fallen in love with Eindsay and Co.’s choice sausages, boiled ham, pies, youliig ducks, and prime poultry-. It's a case of love at first taste, and peace over after. Wives feed their husbands on them and bring joy to the homes. All goods fresh and clean. Try- fchem for your next order. Ftdl particulars of Messrs McKay Bros’, sale to-day are given in this issue. Messrs J. A. Mitchell and Co. hold a clearing sale of horses in their yards this morning.
