W. C. Maucker's Cash Prices!
It is now nearly one year since W. C. Maueker moved his Gro
cery Business into his fine commodious store on the corner of
Seventeenth street and Fourth avenue, and the year's business
has lieen so highly satisfactory that Mr. Maueker has decided to
start another store at 2224 Fourth avenue, in what was formerly
the II. L. Wheelan grocery. The new store is started for the
purpose of accommodating Mr. Maucker's rapidly growing
trade in the east end of the city, and at the same time by divid
ing large purchases of groceries he is able to make very low
prices, which no doubt will be appreciated by all patrons of the
grocery trade. Note the following list:

What Is Quality?
Quality is an element of goodness which all
desire and few attain.
Why the Few?
Because quality means the use of the best of
everything. For instance, in bicycles: It
takes good material, good men. good thonght,
good time, to produce quality. If you buy a
bicycle of quality like the Cleveland, it is
right and proper to pay for what you get.
So Quality Costs?
The best of anything is of more value than
of the ordinary or common thing of the same
class. Only a few attain perfection, and
these few are of higher value. The manu
facturer who uses the best of materials, the
best of machinery and the best men, will pro
duce the best of quality. The Cleveland . is
the best of quality.
The Cleveland Represents Quality.
