We close the hard timo year, 1894. First, by thanking
all our patron ;; we are thankful to every one; we have tried
to do our duty to all, and every time giving them
$1.00 WORTH FOR $1.00.
We have done a large business (big business.)
Notwithstanding the hard times, we hear frotn every
side, wo have been favored with many nowv custoiers and
the 1(k1 ones have been kept in line, wvhlch is suflicient-evi
dcnco that we are on the inside with goods and prices.
We announced In TnE PEoiPL.'s JouRNAL, several
weeks ago, that we had to unload our immense stock, that
announceien', met the eyes of' Thousmds who were In want
of SHOES and such a stampede for our store has never oc
curred before When these poopl caio for Shoes they
bought them. As our Prices and Goods wero r ight there
was no looking around thinking they could do better. Our
Prices and Goods did the work.
We begin the New Year with new zeal, backed by every
advantage known to the t,'ade; with our own Factory behind
us our stock will be larger and Prices Lower than any house
