THE AB6H7S. FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1899.
Is like buying many of the so called bargains.
You get but little actual return for your money.
With the good solid everyday merchandising at
Shield's Cash Grocery its different, however. In
saving a little here and a little there the
aggregate grows into a nice round sum when the
year has rolled around. There's nothing that
saves like a saving. Read below.
