The proper, most satisfactory and convincing way to form a
correct conclusion as to value is by comparison, It is im
possible to judge from newspaper quotations. For this rea
son we ask you to COMPARE our line of $4.35 Men's Suits

those others advertise at $7.50; our line of $6.50 Mens Suits
with those others advertise at slO.OO; our line of $9.90 Men's

TELLS THE TALE.
If the quality, fit, workmanship and trimming is not better and the price lower than that ot any
