Who Think They Can't Afford Them
Htincrecis of the homes of workingmen;in this city are sparsely furnished. Some are severely
plain and uninviting and many of them have old fashioned and badly worn furniture. Still
others almost border on desolation. It staiads to reason that nine out of every ten of these men
BO want comfortable and cozy homes. ' Thedo not have them because they think they cannot
afford them on account of large families and only medium sized salaries. Let us disabuse the
minds of these men of any sneh thought. As a matter of fact THEY CAN AFFORD ANY
THING THEY WANT so far as home furnishings are concerned and in so far as this nouse can
cover their wishes. iWe desire the trade of the woTrndngmen fully as much as that of men in bet
ter circumstances, and we will go as far to accommodate them as any concern in the world. Our
credit system is a very unique and a very desirable affair. It is not the , ordinary installment
house kind by any-means but a plan that it has taken usyears to work out satisfactorily. We
will be glad to furnish the home of any workingman in the city or vicinity, and give -him . a
monthly payment plan that even the most meager salaries wiH cover with ease. Furthermore, we
will furnish the home on THIRTY DAYS' FREE TRIAL in oder to do away with all possibil
ity of dissatisfaction. We are open Wednesday and Saturday evenings. You are invited to call
and talk things over likewise see the hundreds of home outfits ranging from' $49 upwards.
'.pie to Establish a. Home
All Goods Sold on 30 Days' Free Trial
It's mighty hard for the average man no matter how ambitious he may be to pay in one lump
the cost of furnishings for a complete home. Mighty few do. None need to. This liberal credit
that we're giving to ambitious salaried people enables them to have what they want when they
want it. It's refined credit thoroughly pleasant. It's just a plain charge arrangement where
you pay each month what you can conveniently spare. No interest to pay no security to give-
no publicity no searching investigations no annoying features whatever nothing at all that
could offend or embarrass. It will solve the furniture problem for you most satisfactorily.
Won't you let it? People build houses on borrowed money. The chances are your landlord still
owes for the building you live in, other people have homes built for them and pay for them on
the installment plan. Now will you tell us the difference between buying a home on the install
ment plan and furnishing a home on the installment plan. We have thought out this proposi
tion and amended it and bettered it until it has become a science with us, and if there is a man
or a woman who objects to such a plan as this, he or she is behind the times and suffering from
false pride. Again we say we trust the people and if after 30 days' free trial you are dissatisfied
with any of your purchases, same will be cheerfully exchanged.
