DEC. 15thTO FEB. 1st, 1916
every knows it was our intention
to ou stock of hardware to the
Dr. Johnson block on Third street, when that
building was vacated, but we find that we
cannot do so until the first part of February,
1916, when the weather gets real cold and
miserable for that kind of work. Now for the
sake of avoiding too much moving of goods
from one place to another, we will take this
means of disposing of all we can at cost.
Anything and everything in our store will be
sold at actual cost nothing reserved, so what
ever you ask for you will get it at cost, because
we know it is easier to move our bank book
than it is to move heavy hardware, and when
we get settled in our new location we can get
all the goods we are able to pay for. Now
rememoer, this is no fake sale, but that you
will get anything in our line at wholesale prices
