Having (as yoa all know) worked hard and used great ef
forts to build np our business, we were very careful in selecting
our goods and Lave bought nothing but what we can recommend.
There are some special features noticeable in our house. One is
the great variety of styles and patterns we are able to offer for
selections of the public, and we confidently believe we can gratify
and satisfy any aod every buyer. Another important feature is
prices; we have a large 6t0ck and we must not, and will not, let
any question of "price" hinder piompt selling. To be on the safe
side, we have marked prices 60 close that the quotation of them
will carry conviction of cheapness to every man or woman who
sees our goods. ,
Our great Sprirg Stcck is ready for inspection, every depart
ment beiDg complete. Our large store room (which is three times
as large as any concern' here) is filled to its utmost capacity with
Clothing, Gents' Furnishing Goods, Hats and Caps. Whenever
you are ready for new Goods, come and see the
