If you will kinidly refer back to our advertising in
the local lpapers as far hack as six months ago, you will
read where we predicted 'lower prices" for all Dry
Goods, Read; -to-wear and kindred lines. This predic
tion has come true. We, on our part, bought most of our
goods at the lower prices and are now in position to sell
Recognizing that when goods were advancing we
followed the market, we now believe that it is nothing
but right that we should follow the market in the decline.
We therefore have concluded to re-mark every item in our
store, basing our prices on what goods are worth today.
This, then, is a great opportunity for Man, Woman
and Child to purchase what you need at prices you can
afford to pay. If you need a Ladies' Coat Suit, Coat or
Dress, Hat or Shoes, Underwear or Top Wear, Piece
Goods in Wool, Silk or Satin or Velvet or Cotton. Or be
it Men's and Boys' Suits, Hats, Shoes, Overalls, in short
every item mentioned or not mentioned, ours is the store
for you to visit.
A Seventy-Five Thousand
We carry a stock of Ladies' and Men's wear and
piece goods of all kinds, anything ready for Man, Woman
It is thbsreereadily understood that it is
tbih Sah nisP and
Continues until further notice
OUR TERMS ARE CASE, AS USUAL.
If you want to do yourself justice, it will be best to
come to the store in person, as it is impossible to send out
goods with any degree of satisfaction to seller or buyer.
No goods on approval.

Stop and Think
Geuinse values require no "induumesnte" or "oon.

That's the reason we are never looking around for
extraotrdiilary means of dispsing of our stock. We sell
groceries---not tl:ings-and a dollar's worth of them will
always bring a dollar in return without throwing in an
elephant as an "inducement".
We have the goods-the "real" goods-and the

THE UNIVERSAL CAR
F OR thirty-five years Henry Ford, a farmer's toy, has been working on the problem of
a successful tractor for the farm, and "or the past fourteen years has devoted much
time and a vast amount of money to the development of the present Fordson Tractor.
Tcday that Tractor is in use on nearly 100,000 farms and if you have any doubt as to the
satisfaction it gives to those who are using it, call in and get the booklet, just issued by
the Ford Motor Company, and called "The Fordson at Work" and read the testimony
which is there given by the multitude of owners of Fordson Tractors. No evidence can be
more conclusive than that of the man who actually knows by personal experience and this
is the line of testimony carried in this httle booklet. There is no cost for this booklet. If
you cannot call for it, write, drop us a postal, and we will mail it to you without charge.
It is so valuable you ought to have it because it is the open door through which the farmer
will pass from the hard working drudge to the comparative comfort of the manufacturer.
The I'ordson makes it possible for the farmer to plan and direct, while the machine will
do the work. It presents thc widest latitude for the farmer to exercise his brain power and
plan how he can get the most from the soil,knowing that the Tractor will do the hard
work, do it better, do it qtucker, and therefore do it more profitably. This means not alone
in the cultivation of the soil, in the harvesting of the crops, but in a hundred and one dif
ferent demands that axe made for labor, cutting of ensilage and the filling of the silo;
cutting of wood; operation of the washing machine; mn the lighting of the house with
aeectricity; supplying the house with runnng water; bringing to the farmer's wife and
daujhters the conveniences of the city, relieving them of much of the hard, unpleasant
part of housework.
