# n l incL Established 1878. CLABE, MIOH., FRIDAY, OCT. 29, 1897. New Series: Vol.5,JTo: 48 W I F. TATMAN, THE CASH MERCHANT. Olaee,'Mioh,, Oct, 29th, 1897. 3TARMEES:—Bring in your Eggs and Butter; we want it, and will sell you anything in Shoes or Groceries cheaper than any other supply house in Michigan. Any farmer that will bring me his order as given to the parties who tried to make you believe (Jlare merchants were charging enormous prices, I will fill the same for 25 per cent, less than your "bill calls for. except sugar, which I will sell at the" same basis as mentioned in your order, and if you want spices alone, as spices, appeared to be the largest part of all the orders, I will fill every order for spices at 40 per cent, less than your order calls for, and all of'my goods will be endorsed by the State Food Commissioner as Pure. We have no Russia tea at 76 cents per pound. Russia never raised a pound of tea and never will. But I will sell you a pound of the best Japan tea that can be bought anywhere in Michigan for 45 cents. Gall and get a sample by asking for it. I have no molasses at 67 cents per gallon, but will sell you good molasses at 30 cents per gallon— such as our best customers use. Come and see who is the fraudulent merchant. "We, as business men of Clare, cannot afford. to defraud the farmer as strangers would try to make us appear, as all our interests are mutual. Any business man who is interested in the welfare of his business cannot and will not misuse his costomers at any time by overcharges or by selling poor goods. My goods come from such reliable firms as Symon Bros. & Co., Phipps, Penoyer & Co., Lee & «;ady, W. .7. Gould & Co., Berdan cfe Co., C. Elliott «& Co. and many other such firms, and they are not affraid to bill their goods to us on bills with their names printed thereon. They do not take orders of us as a firm of one name and send us a bill made out in another firm name. Farmers, stand by the Clare merchants. I believe, as a whole, they mean to do right by you. Yery Respectfully, J. F. TATMAN. SEEMS TO BE SURE. New Railroad Projected Into Clare Gountij From the North. PTalkaslca, Mich,, October 26.—The much talked of Grand Rapids, Kalkaska & Southern railroad bids fair to soon become one of the arteries of commerce in Michigan's railroad system. Up to a very re'eent date, al though work has been in progress for several weeks, the nromotei's of the scheme, the most prominent of whore is the Hon, William Alden Smith, of Grand Rapids, have been somewhat reticent as to their plans, and many people haye thought ifc merely a logging road which, penetrating a section heavily timbered wifch hardwood, its objective point being an extensive tract of valuable pine a considerable distance southeast of here, would, when bbe timber became exhausted, be discontinued. Now, however, Mr. Smith, who it seems has been busy interesting Boston capitalists in the enterprise and has met with success, talks freely of the project, and says It means much for Kalkaska and fche undeveloped portion of the state, rich in forest products, and the soil of which Is in the main valuable for agricultural purposes. Starting at Van Buren, on theO. &W. M. R. R.. the new line runs to Kalkaska. From thence it will be pushed along on the survey of the defunct Detroit, Charlevoix & Escanaba railroad, with the same ob- iective point, viz: Harrison, on the E. & P'. M. R, R., in Olare county.

L '^y ■ ^ssssbsjv 5 ILsas*' D I Some Persons Try Them to Their Sorrow. I A short time ago a foreign grocer came to bhe cifcy and succeeded in gulling in a certain measure a few persons in Clare and surrounding country. He told them how cheap his goods were and how much better they were than those which could be bought in Clare, and succeeded in taking a few orders. The goods came the first of the week and then the persons who had bought" the articles were told by friends that they were being swindled and a comparison of prices showed up as follows in favor of Clare merchants: I 5 lbs. Japan tea ..©27c 16. 5 lbs. J. and M. coffee..® S3e lt>, 8 lbs. baking powder.. ,@.37e fl>. 3 lbs. pepper ,©37clb, 3 lbs. cloves ,...©03002. 3 lbs cinnamon ©oScoz. 3 lbs. mustard ©OJcoz. 3 lbs.

Another thing, Olare merchants don't add in 90 cents for freight. People ought to be fully convinced by this time that our home merchants can nofc be undersold. There are a large number in business here and that competition among themselves keeps the prices down. Our merchants are in no combine to keep prices up. Our merchants are reliable; if they happen to sell you goods bhat are not as represented you know where to And them to haye the same set right. Our merchants receive their money from this community and spend it back again. Their homes are here. They help support our local and county goverments, and schools and churches. It is not only right that you should patronize them, but you will save money by so doing. On a Serious Charge.
