A Grand Christmas Present given by the London Clothing Co., to their
Little friends. FUEE to all without restriction.
No Lottery Scheme! JSo Wheel of Fortune! i No Brag or Muster! No Gambling or Catch-Penny Baits!

will, simply to be remembered by them, we consider it nobody's business but our own. Some who (previous
to oar coming to Rock Island) had the clothing business all to themselves and were getting rich fist by
making enormous profits are now squealing at the London's liberality and Low prices.

anything they wish. The public are well aware of the cause of their squealing, aud appreciate our effort and
The grat interest and eagerness manifested nov is nothing compared to what it will be when the boys see
"Little Ijord Fauntleroy" in his tine harness, and hitched to his cart, displayed in our large show window, at
which time the guessing will begin.
