How Much Salary Do You Get?
That Is a very important question when you go to figure up
what your expenses arc anil how much you will have spent after
all necessaries are paid for. You probably need some few pieces
of furniture, and after you have bought them of It. A. Jones, you
will not have to pay for them only as you are able, say at the rate
of two or three dollars per month. Consider this matter! There
are thousands of persons buying this way every day and you may
as well be getting the bsnefit easy payments as they. If you
have never tried this plan, let me show you how easy it is to pay
for goods you really need and you hardly miss the money. You
can furnish your home at K. A. Jones and pay by the wc-jk or
month as suits your convenience.
