To Take Advantage of the
Great Clearing Sale.
Many lots have leen
closed oat and others
greatly reduced. We shall
ffcr some additional
items for Tuesday, the
last day of this sale. Our
prices under ordinary cir
cumstances arc positively
lower than can le found
f r the same goods else
where, and at such sale as
advertised, they are in
comparable. It's no trick
to offer an inferior article
at the same price as what
we advertise, as some
dealers have a faculty of
doinjj and then loast of
their low prices. It may
le well to remember that
prices are named only
when The Uo-ston Store
compels such action Ly
offering such irresistible
bargains as appear in
these eclums from time
to time, and 'I he Huston
Store is rightly deserving
of your patronage.
