We Are Pleased te Be
Told and We
te be true, that what we are doing te
serve the public through our simple,
straightforward sterckecping these
days,' is most gratifying.
It is common te have people say
"that there are no make-believes
about your Stere."
That new clerks make mistakes and new
delivery men fail te get deliveries promptly
and that some old clerks are careless and
sleepy will always happen and has te be
accepted, as the human failure in spite of all
efforts te have it otherwise, s
As te our building where js there
another like it in this or any ether city in
the United States?
With mere business than ever, it is
It is clean, healthful, fireproof and from
its top fleer down has four fireproofed
brick-and-stone fire towers capable of
emptying'any number of people from each
Please think ever the great
clearance of our high-cost stocks
which we made four months age te
prepare for recent events.
We also put a stoppage en the inten
tion te further advance prices.
We firmly adhered te an edict te net
We are net new, and w'Wnet be in the
future, leaded up with heavy high-cost
Ner will we suffer ourselves te take
ever the sterages of manufacturers te
rush big sales.
Seme of us who were country
boys remember that a warmed-up
dinner of what was left of former
meals never seemed very eatable
and, as merchants, we shall net make
up warmed-evers of merchandise,
cut of date, shape and season, te be
unleaded upon our geed customers.
First of all, our merchandise must be
of dcpendableness and of freshness.
Second everything must bear the
lowered price as fast as reductions can
This Stere, with its opportunities
te purchase for cash and its well
known capacity te aid the manufac
turers te dispose of large quantities
of properly made goods, will always
be favored as helpful te keep busy
the workers they employ.
We are net speculators or fancy
advertisers just plain old-fashioned
Be free te visit the Stere and
judge it by what you see.
