mean by buying such quantities of goods?" is an ex
pression heard many times a day, but the most fa
vorable comment is from the thousands of well pleas
ed and satisfied customers who say: "How can they
sell 'em so cheap?" The reason is easily explained.
We are the biggest wholesale dealers in this line in
the upper part of Carolina-when we visit the East
ern markets, the mill men know us as large buyers
Our sources of supply are the same as the jobbing
houses from whom the retail merchants buy their
goods-but it is not alone due to the fact that we are
large and close buyers. There comes the difference

that more people are finding out our way of doing
business and learning that here is a store that is
constantly gfighting HIGH PRICES and always on
