their patrons. The character of M. & K. merchandise
and M. & K. reputation as UNDERSELLERS has
gained for us an enviable position which keeps the crowds
headed M. & Kward. This is said not in a spirit of brag,
.but because it is of direct interest to you, that you may
know where the best goods at the least prices are sold,
and, like Rodyard Kipling, we say, "Lest You Forget,
We Say it Let " that your money back, quick, if you are
not satisfied, makes the M. & K. a safe trading place.
Is not much to pay for a mans suit, but when you see the magnificent
line we are selling at this price and count the difference you have saved,
you will then appreciate our method and reputation as underseilcrs.
