This mark on Things to wear
has a meaning that some
people ought to know more
about. The strongest defini
nition is in these words:
Style, Quality, Durability
aid Full Value.
STYLE. Because we have them made the
way we want them, to he worthy of the
QUALITY. Because we have a fixed stand
ard of 100 per cent good, nothing else will
satisfy us. We cant afford to carry goods
below that standard.
DURABILITY. A natural following of
FULL VALUE. One of our maxims is "A
dollar's worth of merchandise for a dol

brought us forward as Rock Island's most
