first of October The situation as explained to us is just this The leases on all the buildings now occupied by them expire very soon Two of these rooms I must be given up These are the rooms now used for the grocery and hardware departments As the new space for these departments is not as ample as at present these stocks have to be reduced at least one half That is why such heavy discounts are now being made on all hardware and queensware harness gears saddles ect And the stoves and ranges are heavily reduced also Then tjie two rooms now used for the clothing and dry goods departments require extensive alterations and improvements The contract for this work has been let to Mr J heginSeptthe putting in of a new floor and taking out the entire bask wall t- opt th full size windows to give more light All this work will tear things up to such an extent that they can not do business while it is going on and necessarily must have at few goods on hand as possible That is why the goods in
