Red Hot Values in Shoes.
UPON opening up our New Stock of 1902 styles of Shoes, we find that
our buyer has scooped the biggest values ever before known in our experi
ence. We can please the most fastidious shape-from Trilby to Big King
and our prices are a godsend to scant purses. Our Dollar Shoes are not
only neat, elegant and shapely, but they are serviceable, comfortable an?V
built for wear. It is really cheaper to wear Shoes at this price than to go -
barefooted-even at night. , , v .
We have some very attractive prices on ready-made PANTS^"
prices that wiii appeal to you so pathetically that you cannot resist their
pleadings. No one, be he as poor as a Lazarus, can afford to go in his shirt
tail at the prices we are asking for Jeans Pants.
Our trade is increasing every month, and we are constantly adding new
customers to our already large and influential list-a list of which, we take
this occasion to say, we are particularly proud, as the nam* s thereon repre
sent the best moral and financial element of the County. This phenomenal^
growth has been built up on a basis of s ich guarantees as we give on
Dean's 3?ater>t Floury
And everything else that we sell, and for this reason we'll continue to **row
and to preserve the integrity of our guarantees.
