But the goods are from the greatest American weav-
ers of woolens at Utica. Every yard of these materials
was made to go into suits at $30 and up. The sheriff
knocked them down to me at a price that enables me to
make them up to your order at $15. I'll warrant ttyat

under $30, and there isn't a tailor in town who can dupli-
cate the style and snap of the tailoring at any price. They
can imitate my prices and only imitate my work.
The activity begins tomorrow.
We will have an ample force of expert salesmen to
take care of you and an added force in the tailoring end,
will enable me to get out your suit in a week. Now is the
time to order the summer suit because I dare say that this
is the greatest stock at just this moment that will be found
in any retail tailoring establishment in America.
