T h e proprietors of the N e w s de­ siring to give their advertisers the benefit of a little free advertising as the holiday season approaches, de­ tailed a reporter to visit their places o f business and take a hasty glance at the thousands of different articles which the business men of Batavia have purchased to please the eye of ali, high, low, rich and poor. Th e com m and being given, the itemizer donned h a t'and coat and sallied forth upon his mission. T h e first place visited was the auction and comm ission store of WALDO AND NEASM 1 TH. These gentlem en have recently en­ gaged in business and have a Stock consisting of harnesses, robes, cut­ ters and whips, that, will bear in­ spection. T h e y are thoroughgoin g men, and we bespeak for them the patronage which they justly deserve. F, E.

Mr. W r igbt has lately added a new leature to his business, that is the sale ol hot soda water, it is a good beverage to drink, in cold weather, and we advise our readers to give it a trial. Alter tak­ ing a drink of hot coffee, the knight of the quill departed with renew­ ed energy and next entered he hat store ot JOHN THOMAS. A t this place of business the display of stock was immense, and the Hol­ iday goods, which consist m a inly of the latest styles o f gents’ gioves and mitten?, ¡Vie grained traveling bags, umbrellas, and hats and caps of all styles and sizes. Mr. Thom a s is a youn g man and has been engaged in tiiis business but two years, Dut is pretty well versed in his line ol trade. MISS J. F.

T h e third story was literally packed with children’s toys, fancy cabinet ware, glass and wooden ware, all of which will please the eye ol the little ones on Christmas morning.

T h e stock is so full and com p lete tin t it is al iiost an impos­ sibility to give it the notice which it should have. T h e stock for ele­ gance far surpasses any which they have shown in former years and must be seen to be appreciated. After leaving the drug store of Shaw & Stiles a close inspection was given .0 the stock in the store of E N. STONE. Betore entering, however, the •scribe gave a hasty glance at the tastily trimmed window which was idled with a display of velvets, silk handkerchiefs and numerous arti­ cles of fancy ior the fem inine eye. fh e interior of the store, which has been tastily trim med under the supervision of J.
