FURNITURE! at Reduced Prices!

In consequence of the scarcity of money, and the advantages of having it, I have determined to sell, for the next thirty days the whole of my present stock of HOME-MADE FURNITURE! Those persons who will need furniture for the next six months to come, will do well to give me a call, and get bargains, for it is evident, when I close, that Furniture will go up, as it will be impossible for me to manufacture at the prices I now offer. P. S. - I want my friends and the public generally to understand that I am still on hand, ready to manufacture everything in my line; and when my services are needed in the "UNDERTAKING BUSINESS", they will find me well prepared with ready-made coffins of all sizes, and a new hearse, for their accomodation. D.F. ZURHORST, Northwest Corner of Public Square, Martinsville
