      __________________________

      J. U. CLEMENS.

      To the farmers of the surrounding district and even in the town itself, the name of Mr. J. U. Clemens was well known long before he opened out in New Hamburg five years ago. For Mr. Clemens had been in business as a general merchant in New Dundee for many years, subsequently going to Berlin. He is a gentleman with an honorable and successful business record to his credit and enjoys a good share of public confidence in and about New Hamburg. He does a general dry goods trade but makes it a Point to have something special before the public most of the time. To this end he handles much bankrupt stock and, as these are always first class goods, his patrons get genuine and very substantial bargains handed out very frequently. Especially in shoes and ready-made clothing, of which he carries a large stock, is this true. His stock of gents furnishings is complete and up to the minute at all times. But it is in ladies' high-class shirt waists that this store specializes. Mr. Clemens is proud of his offerings in this line and truly his selection is a splendid one. Ladies of the vicinity cannot make a mistake in looking through this store for a natty, stylish shirt waist.
