We consider this one of the most liberal offers we have ever made and one our
customers will want to take advantage of. As always, it is the purpose of this insti
tution to make every transaction mutually agreeable. To offer at special sale only
such merchandise as will give satisfaction, so that these sales will not only make
new friend for us, but establish a feeling of confidence between Franc's and the fur
niture buying people of the Tri Cities.
Why We Offer These Values
As in every transaction, price, of course, Is the Important thing,
and it never meant more to you than It does now. Just think
what thia offer means an elegant polished oak china cabinet
that would be a credit to any home, no matter how refined, with
a complete set of artistic dinner dishes exactly as shown in this
picture. The cabinet alone is worth f 22.60 and the dishes you '
couldn't get anywhere for less than $7.50 eo you can very plain
ly see that you are getting fully $30.00 worth of merchandise for
$19.78 to say nothing of the easy terms on which it is sold.
The China Cabinet
Simply to acquaint the furniture buying public of the Trl-Cltles
with our ways of doing bunlness. There are still some folks who
think it Is impossible to buy goods of us on credit lower than
at cash stores. We are gradually bringing these people around
to believe the truth and the way we are doing it Is by Blmply
asking them to "compare values." Our offerings are alwaya
greater than elsewhere as everybody who has taken the time to
find out will tell you.
An exact illustration of which is here shown, is made of solid se
lected oak, with bent glass ends, with two handsome plate glass
mirrors on top. As a general rule when a piece of furniture of
this kind is offered at special sale you will find it in what is
known as a "gloss finish." It is quite different in this case, for
after we had completed arrangements with the manufacturers of
these Cabinets, we paid quite an additional amount to have every
Cabinet rubbed and polished.
Terms: $2.00 Cash, 50c Weekly
$200 cash, 50 cents weekly, puts this beautiful china cabinet with
set of dishes into your home. Surely these terms are low enough
to suit anyone. It means practically 9 months in which to pay
for the china cabinet and dishes, and enables you to buy this
handsome outfit without curtailing other pleasures or necessities.
The Dinner Set
This set is in the beautiful Delft, with a fine gold line decora
tion, so popular this season, and which is the richest looking of
any yon can buy. Just imagine the nicest set of dishes you ever
aw setting on any ta
ble and you will know
then what to expect
when you come. Thia
ware la positively
guaranteed not to
crack and to give you
We wouldn't want you
to keep it if it did.
In running sales of this kind we are somewhat at a loss to know
how many of a kind to order. In this case we took 18 and the
first 18 who come win get tnem. Alter mat we must ask your
kind Indulgence, as it
will take from two to
three weeks to make
deliveries after these
18 are sold. - There-
lore li you are tn a
hurry for your china
cabinet and dishes we
""' would advise you to
. come with the early
