The Store's Order for All Stoek is Based on I
No such a sale has ever been up before, Perhaps no such force has ever been back of a necessity.
The Hub Clothing Co. know of no other Clothes than such as are strictly men tailor-made, of
latest and best materials, and in styles and shapes so that "the clothes will make the man." Those of
the hundreds and thousands that are accustomed to wearing "The Hub" Clothing know that when such
Clothes are placed on the market at almost ridiculous prices, it's time to walk fast.
The sale is extended to a time satisfactory for adjusting the necessity.
There are as yet many hundreds of Men's and Boys' Suits?in fact, almost anything that can be called
for. You may buy Hats, Furnishings, Men's or Boys' Clothes, Overcoats, or whatever the store contains.

There is no doubt that Gans's great
