Pay for a
SUIT oi CLOTHES ?
You may have the idea that we sell only the higher
grades of Clothing. Some people have that notion.
You may have said to yourself, "I can't afford to pay
315.00 or $20.00 for a Suit, and I don't Believe I can get a
-good Suit at a smell price there."
BUT YOU CAN.
If you want a Suit at $5.00 we have the best"* Suit that
that amount of money can buy.
If you want to pay $10.00 we'll give you the best
$10.00 Suit you ever ssw.
You choose for yourself $5, $7.50, $10, $12.60, $15.00,
$18 or $20.
The selection rests with you.
We give you what you want. v
You get full cash value and a full guaranty for what you
pay, no matter what the amount may be.
When you buy a Suit here you not only get better Clothes
than any Credit Store oin give, and for less money, but you
get the best Suit that could be made for the money you pay.
It will be money in your pocket to s^ J US before you buy
any kind of Cloches for men or boys, no matter what induce
ments may be offered by any one else.
We guarantee to give you a better Suit for less money
than any Credit Store.
If you are in the market for Men's or Boys' GlotLits we
j want you to come here, whether you want a $20.00 Suitor a
j $1.00 Boys' Snit, all you need do is to come to seelns and ?look
at our line.
IT WILL PAY YOU!
