Ireat Bargains in Laces!I
and ombroidery with inser tions to match 1 A man who makes it his
Lusiness to scrape up) bargains in goods sent me a lot of fine laces, em
roideries and insertions with instructions "to sell"; that means as long
thiA lot lasts you can buy it for less than half the usual price; along
ith the lot is some extra liino htwns; were it not for the rediculously
w price he made on this I would ship iL back. Several pieces organ
es and other up to date dress goods; you will be interested in the
'Ices on this stuff. A few pailrs very nice oxfords, hardly enough to
enltioin, 45c. for your choice. Last year a house shipped me about 10
mnes as many cotton hoes as I bought; it is a good thing I kept thoem,
they ara much higher. I can sell you cotton hoes for less than they
nu be bought at wholesale, and still make a little pronit, and I am
ilhing to do it.f
Produace always wanted.
