hero. Acres of good, honest Furniture, and acres of
Great Big, Bona Fide Bargains
for the purposes of this Sae. We want a thousand new faces to see this
Great Big Store in the next thirty days. We want a thousand pairs of
sharp, shrewd eyes to pry around and sue us up, and resist our prices if
they can. We have the goods, we have the disposition to sell them, and
we have the courage to make such prices during this sale as the people
of this vicinity never saw before.
In this September Sale Housekeepers can pick up many good things
at less than half actual worth. The early days, of course, will give the
greatest choice. All through the house are deep cuts in prices, but you
had better come early for the items given below. They may fast all the
month, and they may not last ten days. But they are here now. De
pends on you how long they will remain.
