The house of Rhodes, Haverty & Huppe,
has always been known as the friend of. the
poor class. Thousands of comfortable, happy
homes stood a few days ago monuments to its

hour of distress of the pcrple it comes again to
their rescue, and offers terms upon which the
most distressed sufferer can recuperate, live and
be happy and hopeful. The company arises

The subject of this sketch, Cap. I. H. Jordan, who for a
number of years was one of the notable figures with the firm
&l of Rhodes, Haverty & Huppcs, at 611 Main St. Some
v months ago he severed his connection with that firm and was
engaged with another of the same business. But, in the act
of God, coursing the raging waters to lay waste and make
barren the thousands of once happy homes, where comfort,
5. love and contentment once reigned supreme, He saw that in
order to serve his people, He called upon him to return to the
firm of Rhodes, Haverty & Huppe, whose warm heart, small payments and
reasonable prices on furntiure would enable him to do more, in the hour of dis
tress and suffering, for his people than wifh any other similar firm in a short
lifetime. So any person who is a flood sufferer and wants furniture, you will,
for yourself and honor to the only colored man in Kansas City who is in a
position to help you in the way of furniture.
The prices of Rhodes, Haverty & Huppe have always been as low as
good goods could be sold for. The immense purchases of this house to supply
its 20 or more branches, backed by its unlimited capital, enables it to go into the
market and buy at the lowest possible prices, and it always has been its policy to
give to the people the benefit of its ability to buy cheap, by selling them the best
goods for the the least possible profit. This rule will hold good in the present
emergency, and you will find prices as low as any house in the United States
for the same class of goods.

There are only a few incidents in history more
appalling than the disastrous flood from which
the people of our city are now suffering.
Among ' the recent disasters which are still
fresh in our memories are the eruption of Mt.
Pelee and the Galveston Tidal Wave. The
losses in property in this city was greater in
extent than In either of these great disasters,
and while the loss of life was not so appalling ,
still the loss of homes and property of the poor,
the enforced idleness of honest workmen and
throwing on the charity of the more fortunate,
thousands of self-respecting, honest heads of
families, brings to us a condition of suffering
seldom in a community which in ordinary times
is amply able to protect itself, and where honest
labor asks charity from no man.
In this hour of our dire distress
and real destitution of our people,
it is a fair warning to, and they
should heed it. Go to work and
do something; learn to patronize
racial enterprises; profit by the
past and live for the future.
