Owing to the unprecedented success of Our Great Special
Labor Day Sales April 25 and May 2, we have decided to deal
out our enormous bargains all through the house for the rest of
the month of May, so that everybody will have a chance to obtain
goods of the very latest styles and best makes for less than- half
price. We feel confident that out of the thousands that visited
our store during Our Great Special Labor Day Sales not one
went away dissatisfied. All were fully convinced that we do not
misrepresent, but fully live up to all our advertisements.
