C. Wilkins General Hardware] (What You Can't Eat You Can Can and good canned stuff certainly is mighty good when the fresh stuff is no longer to be had. Come here and get everything you need except the fruit and sugar. Yes, even to the oil or gasoline cooker. All the "newest wrinkles" in canning contrivances, and all at prices that encourage buying. Strictly summer stuff, like hammocks, ice-cream freezers, door and window screens, etc., get their marching orders this month and clear out on the "double-quick" to the tune of lowered prices. You can afford to anticipate your wants for next summer and buy now. We pay you well for storing the goods, and you have the use of them the rest of this season besides. G. C. WILKINS CHAFFE ).
