Our COST PRICE Sale for Ten Days
The trading public have learned that they can always save money by trading with us, and that when we
put on an extra sale they can depend on us to do just what we offer in our announcement.
We do not select a few items that we are particularly anxious to get rid of and offer special on them,
but we cut the price on everything in the store.
In this sale we offer all of our Dry Goods and Shoes at EXACTLY what they COST us to place them
