COMPARISON 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 Mens Suits
others advertise at $4.45; our line of $5.00 Mens Suits with
those others advertise at $7.50; our line of $6.50 Men's Suits
with those others advertise at $10.00; our line of 9.90 Men's
Suits with those others advertise at $6.5! COMPARISON
TELLS THE TALE.
If the quality, fit, workmanship and trimming is not better and the price lower than that of any
otherjdealer, don't buy. All we ask that you compare.-nothing can be fairer.
