GAGE-DODSON CO.
ON HOLLY STREET, IN BELLINGHAM
is an ideal place to buy C LOTH ES- This
store has the knack of winning the trade of men who
know. The thoughtless buyer, who can be lured by
lofty language, seldom comes here, even to see. We don't
indulge in high-sounding inconsistencies, but confine our
statements to facts, and when we say that we carry the
largest stock of High-Class Clothing for Men and
Young Men at lowest prices, we expect to and are
prepared, to be called upon to "make good."
We ask you to sec and compare our oflerings with others-.
from anywhere—style, quality, price—and be governed by
your findings. We claim that the feature of this store is
VALUE—make us prove it.
