Big Stock Of Dry Goods
J. (jr. McCu ■ returned the lat-
tar part of last week from
Springfield where he made a
purchase of the largest line of
dry goods ever brought to Dav
enport. The goods arrived Mon-
day and have now been unpack
ed and placed on display at the
McCue store. It will be a great
source of satisfaction to Daven
port people to be able to pur-
chase everything they want in
this line right at home and it is
a certainty that it can be done
Mr. McCue is putting on a
special sale of certain articles
for Saturday and is especially
inviting the ladies r>f the c> m
, munity to inspect the new goods
If Davenport prospective pur
chasers of dry goods will be
careful to inspect these goods
before going to other towns, they
will purchase very little dry
goods outside of Davenport
