Young & McCombs' first August Furniture Sale
It dawns upon the horizon of money saving events as
the one local chance to purchase "Superior" Furniture
at low prices such as we now quote:
One incubus of the furniture business a numerous
excresence is the factory that makes showy furniture
for "sales" cheap stuff, "dipped" to give a glittering
finish; and depending on glue to hold its snapping, rheu
matic joints together for the brief span of its existence.
It is the entire absence of this trashy stuff that is one
of the distinguishing features of the Young & McCombs
The furniture here is from our regular suppliers
the same good grades that bid for your favor in March
or October constitute the sale stocks in August.
It is furniture built on principle and with highest
skill bought with expert knowledge of furniture con
struction and the trained good taste to meet your re
quirements in furnishings.
The saving be it 10 or 50 is safely made.
The average saving is a third.
irhe Young & McCombs Plan For Buying
Furniture Offers the Convenience of
By this new Deferred Payment Plan we offer pur
chasers of furniture the privilege of easiest payments;
the same low prices (plainly marked) that all customers pay; for this extension
we charge absolutely nothing. No interest or extras. We shall be glad to ex
plain in full the advantages of our Deferred Payment Plan. But read this page,'
cut it out and bring ibto the store for comparisons.

Fortunate!-Sums Up This Carload
Purchase of Brass Beds, 4th Off
From the Famous Simmons Mfg. Co.
Car of 150 Jus! Unpacked Yesterday
Fortunate because they are equally as good in quality as any Brass Bed we
ever sold, and fortunate because August Furniture Sale prices are at least 25 below
The Furniture chief secured them personally as a favor, at the factory, on July
14. The full carload was unpacked in Rock Island yesterday.
Note This Brass Bed Warning!
The imp of inferiority, in the form of cheap, inexperienced labor and 15 to 25
cheaper material, has wriggled his way into the metal bedstead business. ' The mar
ket has been Hooded for some months with offerings of brass bedsteads, some at le
gitimate reductions, but many of them cheap in every respect.
These Simmons Brass Beds are the standard and every furniture man in Amer
ica will quickly tell you so. m
So come in tomorrow, please, look them over, and count yourself fortunate if you
purchase any of these Beds at the lowered August Sale prices that will now prevail.
