Tells the Tale.
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
others advertise at $4.45; our line of $5.00 Men's Suits with
those others advertise at $7.50; our line of $6.50 Men's Suits
with those others advertise at slO.OO; our line of $9.90 Men's
Suits with those others advertise at $13.50. COMPARISON
TELLS THE TALE.
If the quality, fit, workmanship and trimming is not better and the price lower than that of any
other dealer, don't buy. All we ask that you comPare,-nothing can be fairer.
