It doesn't mitter much to Shields
whether school keeps or not as long
as the trade keeps coming. He has
plenty of goods on the way all the time,
and when he orders them he has the

ITS RED HOT GASH
All the way through. Shields sells for
cash; thit givs him cash to bay with.
The cash buyer from the wholesaler or
jobber gets the inside figure. So it's
one continuous round of pleasure for
Shields to keep things moving. It
isn't just for a day, it's the every day,
all the year round low prices that talk.
Save up a dollar or two in cold cash,
toss it on Shields' counter and see the
load of life g'ving goods you can bring
away. Remember the red hot number.
