For the nine months of 1902 the sales have mounted to a
'height never before attained. This maj interest some of you
who have been trading with ^s year after year, for IVs human
nature to have pride in the Store where you trade.
If ow, there must be some good reason for this increase in
oar business. People don't eome here to trade because they
like us. If they could buy the same Goods at the same prices
on credit they wouldn't come here and pay us cash in advance.
No, the only reason they pay us the Cash is because we
save them money. They have found out that it pays them to
trade here, and it'll pay you, too.
We are selling GOOD CLOTHING at a smaller margin of
profit than any Credit Clo t bier s can afford. No doubt about it.
We have told you this before, and we mean every word
cfit-every word. If we weren'i doing this very thing, in
stead of a large and prosperous Clothing Store you would
find here simply an empty space.
Every Credit Clothier has a certain amount of lorises by
bad debts. Then there's a high-priced book-keeper to pay.
Here we have no losses. No book-keeper to pay. Every
sale is Cash. We don't have to add on a certain per cent to
our Goods to cover losses by bad debts and to pay book
If we can't savs? you money we don't want your trcde.

Our Fall Clothing is Here
REAW FOR YOUR INSPECTION.
Here are some of the Values we offer :
Is the low price we place on a big line of Hen's amt Young
Hen's Suits. Blue and ?lack Cheviots, also Cassimeres in
i Checks and Plaids. Every one of them are excellent value,
and we doubt if a Credit StorelcanS match them for a dollar
Is the small pri?e we placo on an excellent line of Men's Suits
in Blue and Black Worsteds, Blue and Black Ail Wool Che
viots. Also Cassimers in Stripes, Cheoks and Plaids. These
Suits are not usually sold at $7.60, but here you save at least
* dollar to a dollar and a half on them.
At $10.00.43,50, 15.00, 16.50, 18.00 and 20.00 -ou will
find an assortment that would do credit to a muoh larger city;
*hese Suits have tb <be seen to be appreciated. But you can
our word for it that there's a saving for don at each price.
