The fact that there can be but one BEST store selling boys' clothing,
it is important for parents to be acquainted with that store. For 24
years M. 6c K. have maintained the undisputed title as Boys' Clothing
Headquarters. This position is due to our determined efforts to sup
ply our patrons with superior qualities at a lower price than can be
had elsewhere. Our new fall styles are certainly no exception to the
rule. Never in the history of this store have we shown such a vast
variety of Boys' Clothing elegance as we now have on display. Our
BUDDY TUCKER AND PETER PAN SUITS
are making a great hit the styles are so different from the ordinary
make and the fit is simply perfection, while the splendid all wool fab
rics that is put into these garments insures that satisfaction of wear,
that a boys' suit is usually' exposed to. Then again, the price is no
more, and in most instances not as much as most dealers charge for
greatly inferior qualities. Our school suits are made for boys who
climb fences, wrestle with the dog and slide down cellar doors, the sort
that's built to stay. We guarantee them to do all that can be expected
of them, and we find they always do more. If you clothe the boy here,
the boy, the clothes or the price won't worry you a bit.
