Business Building Syslem that this store has enjoyed for the last 17 years. Starting in a small room 20x60, or 1,200 square feet of floorsspace, we are now in the new store which is conceded
to be the handsomest in the State of Illinois, and which covers, as selling space, 68,000 square feet. Wednesday we start our May Sale, offering a great many wonderful bargains in the vari
ous lines that will crowd the store. In addition to these special inducements, we will rebate to customers coming in and trading a reasonable, amount, we will refund to them their railroad fare.
It's only common sense to say to you that if we can get a new customer from a new territory wno has never been into our store, to visit our store, become acquainted with our way of doing busi
ness, the satisfaction of getting your money's worth with every transaction is cheap advertising to ourjiotion. Give us a trial as once acustomer, always a customer.
