Our Customers and Friends
Realizing that competition is so sharp and prices eo
close, the Credit system by merchants is nearing a close.
It used to be that anybody would pay their store ac
count, but now only a few will pay and the rest depend
on the few paying their account.
We do not want to hurt anybody or their business, but
we have a right to say how we wasi to use our means
just as you should.

The sooner the people realize the advantage of paying
Cash or Barter the better it will be for them and us, as
ev-ery intelligent man, woman or child-knows that if we
sell for Cash or Barter that we can sell you goods much
cheaper than we can to sell on time, for money is worth
We think that we have as high appreciation for our
customers as anybody, and if we tell you that we can
not charge anything to you, we do not mean that we
do not like you, or think you bad pay, but we simply
mean that we are out of the Credit business and do not
want to sell any one on time.
IF YOU NEED GOODS
and have no money, we probably can arrange it for you
to get the money, so on and after February 1, 1903, we
would take it as a personal favor if you would not ask
iia to charge any goods to you. We know you are good
and worth it, but we are going to close out what goods
we have, and will give you such bargains as never went
