Our Srhrinr fur the Slay Sale,
When wc attempt a .ijrcat
big sale in a certain month
something has jrot to be done
to make you see that it's to
your interest to buy here, and
to buy here now this month
of May. That's just what we
kept before us all the while we
were scouring the markets of
the world for bargains, big
bargains for our May Sale.
Wc planned to make this
month the banner month of
the year, if possible. Can we?
Yes! If we can get you inter
ested. Get you to help us.
And to GET YOU 70 HELP US
we must make you see that
you are helping yourself. To
learn this, come here, Examine,
Compare, Investigate. The more
you will do this the more
goods we will sell.
Wc will pay you lo do this
pay you by the lowered
prices THE MAY PRICES.
To begin with, wc bought
for this sale tons upon tons of
seasonable, standard, staple
merchandise at under the mar
ket prices. These goods were
bought last month, when the
importers and the manufactur
ers had to get rid of the goods
then on hand to clean house,
so that they could go to work
on their fall orders. Doesn't
pay them to carry their goods
over if a price will move them.
Doesn't pay us, either we are
not storers of goods, but sell
ers. The goods -thus bought
are here and on sale, and if
prices will do it 'twill be the
biggest May Sale ever known
How are we going to make
this such a big month? By
getting you to help make it
so; showing to you that it's to
your interest to help us. Of
course if you're indifferent and
don't care to save money, then
this will have been written in
Will you knowingly pav
too much for an article?
Would you knowingly pay
$1.00 for an article anywhere
when here it's 70c ? Would
you knowingly pay 75c for
29c worth of Millinery Rib
bon? Would you knowingly pay
i2jcfor a Dimity of exactly
the same quality we sell for
10c? Would you knowingly
pay $1.50 for exactly the same
quality of Kid Gloves we arc
selling in the May Sale for
Would you knowingly pay
$1.25 for Dress Goods that the
May Sale has made posbiblc
for you to gel at 78c? Would
you knowingly pay $2.00, or
even $1.25, ior Priestley's cel
ebrated IJlack Goods that we
are now selling in our May
Sale for 78c? Would you de
liberate!y go into any store
and pay 3c a yard more for a
yard of the best Staple Check
Ginghams? Of course you
won't, and it's upon this belief
we bank our judgment that
you will see to it that May
proves the banner month.
There 1ms beim a very niarKciJ
improvement in our busiaebs. Tim
so-callcil hard times have bofteiiPcl,
and the business (or the (our
months just passed has beaten any
coircspowlinK period's record, Uf
course it's as wise to be careful of
money now as it was a year ayo.
Wise tor you and lor us. We art!
doing our best to make our money
jo as far as it will, and we believe
you want to do the same. Thin is
the basis on which wo offer to turn
the May Sale goods over to you.
No change in our methods. After
you get any of your May Sale pur
chases home and conclude you'd
rather have your money, bring them
back with duplicate check. No fuss
made about it; all wo ask is that
they be returned to us in a mer
chantable condition. Keep this in
mind may prevent you parting
with your money where you can't
got it again if you want it.
