BY CLINKSCALES & LANGSTON. ANDERSON. S. C.. WEDNESDAY. JULY 3. 1901. VOTJTMR Y*YVTi___i?n ?
This is the month when most
Bien need Seasonable - - . -
If yon are one of the needy ones
you f should look at the line we
*how. IT WILL PAY YOU ! ! !
OUR Shoe Department is fall of good Shoes for men and
boys, and you know when we say good Shoes we mean Shoes
that will give entire satisfaction to the wearer ; if not, your
money back. We are very particular when we buy our Shoes,
for we know how often the. public has been imposed upon.
All of our Shoes ?re taught direct from the manufacturer,
and by that means we get inside prices. It takes the Spot
Gash, but as we sell for Cash we eau pay dash.
It Pays Us to Buy for Gash,
and itu Pay You !
Most Shoe dealers buy from jobbers so as to get time.
That's one reason we can sell you a better Shoe for the same
money than Credit Stores, and another is they have to ask
more so as to make up those losses by bad debts.
Shoe prices here begin at $1.50 and end at $3.50.
We can give you a well made, solid leather, Satin Calf Shoe,
the kind Credit Stores ask you $1.75 for.
At $2.00 .
We have a blaek Viol Sid Shoe that all Shoe wearers should
get acquainted with ; we believe it's the best value ever
offered you for $2.00. Credit Storks? would make a big blow
if they sold one as good for $2.50. That's mighty strong talk,
especially for uo, hut it takes strong talk when it comes to
-this Shoe-it'il stand it.
Our $2.50 Shoes
Come in box calf, viol kid-and patent leather. Eaoh Shoe in
this line is. a genuine English or Goodyear welt. If you have
been elsewhere to look you-.U think we made a mistake and
priced this line 50c. too low. They do compare most favora
bly with most Credit Store $8.00 Shoes.
$3.60 gives you our best Shoes, and as good as most deal
ers' brag Shoes at $4.00. These are
Keith's Konqueror $3.50 Shoes.
We have them in the fellowing leathers: box calf; patent
vici, vic! kid, regent kid, enamel calf and velour calf. The
? new styles just in, ?ome in and see our Shoes.
