A Fact About the Blues

Mr. J. D. Baughman has converted the storehouse formerly occupied by him as a general mercantile establishment into a carriage and buggy emporium where he has for sale a large and fine display of everything in that line. Buying in car load quantities, direct from the factories, he is enabled to sell these goods at prices that defy competition. You may want a buggy and yet feel your inability to purchase, but after seeing Mr. Baughman’s neat display and getting his prices, you will then decide that there is no use to no longer make your family walk to church or to town, when they can ride at so little cost. Mr. Baughman deserves credit for opening up a carriage and buggy establishment in Farmerville in connection  with his general mercantile business, and hence is entitled to be patronized by all our people who want vehicles.
