And the period of safe investments and bargains will be a thing of the past. A wonderful reduc
tion in the price of shoes, such as we have been giving the people, has caused considerable com
ment ; and well it should, when the public has been presented with shoes of the latest styles and
best makes for cost, and less than cost. You will never again meet a sale of shoes with the
advantages we offer. You need shoes, and will need themthen why pay a high price, when you
can get two pairs from us for at the price originally paid for one pair? This is to your benefit;
make the best of it, before you regret it.
