The Pioneer 1'lothtng; Hon of Ion a
Established AuguM IS, 154.
On the 15th of August. 1888, the house
of Robt. Krau9e completed its thirty
fourth year of existence. The old set
tlers of this vicinity will remember the
modest circumstances under which this
business was opened. Thriving and
growing steadily from year to year, it is
now one of the largest establishments in
the great northwest. From a small store
room. 20x60 feet, it has grown into a
lurge business block. 40x150 feet, thre
stories and basement, in tbe heart of tbe
city. Even this large building, erected
in 1885, proves to be too small for the
rapidly increasing business, and will re
quire another enlargement very soon.
Mr. Krause, in 1854, travelled him
self, alone, in a wagon through the coun
try; today nine traveling men are drum
ming up the trade of tbe country from
tbe Mississippi to the Colorado mouns
taina, from the lakes down to the cen
tral part of Missouri, competing success
fully in a country tributary to Chicago,
St. Louis, Kansas City. Omaha, and St.
Paul. Thirty-four years ago two men
were sufficient to attend to all business;
today twenty men are kspt busy all day,
besides sixty hands employed in our
What are the reasons for this wonder
ful growth? The reasons lie in the in
tegrity of the principles the business is
built upon: treating all alike, permitting
no misrepresentations, exchanging goods,
refunding money, and treating all cus
tomers fair and square. The sound
principles upon which our business is cars
ried have brought an altogether different
tone into the clothing business of this
city. Every clothing establishment that
pretended to be "nrstclass bad to come
dnwn to the "one price" system inaugur
ated by ns. If it. does not keep up to it,
it has to sail under its honest flag, vio
lating it on the sly. Another item for
tbe Healthy growth of our establishment
is its reputation for selling only the bet
ter grades of superior clothing and suit
ings; none of those deceptive, shoddy
goods that are so common in the clothing
trade is allowed to enter the stock. Man

gear was getting a little shabby, so he
bought a new hat, had it nicely tied up,
thinking he would wear it out to the din
ner and show his neighbors the latest
Broadway style. Unfortunately for
"Jack" he left his new hat at the county
clerk's office, while he went to attend
tbe session of the board, and this gave a
couple of his colleagues an opportunity
to substitute a dilapidated looking bat for
