A Little Better A rticle
At a Little Less Price
Than you expect to pay is the M. & K. method of serving
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 Letrthat your money back, quick, if you are
not satisfied, makes the M. & K. a safe trading place.
Is not much to pay for a man's 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 undersellers.
For suits you were prepared to pay $10 tor, causes you to wonder ho w
We can do It, but It brings you to our store and back when you want
For suits other dealers ask 55 tor would be a bold assertion for
any other store except the M. K., but it s an M. & K. promise
and our say-so in the newspaper Is our dO'SO In the store.
We are continuing the sale of Knee Pants
$5.00 Suits at $3.95.
As soon as one lot runs out another is substituted to take
its place. The line grows stronger right along.
