The well established business of The Caine & Pitts Furniture Co. ^
will be closed out at the earliest date possible. The gross receipts
for September amounted to more than the gross sales the first
month's existence of the concern. The business has grown stead
ily and can he increased two or three fold under proper manage
ment, and any one wishing to engage in a business of this kind
would lind this a good opening. We prefer selling the business in
bulk, just as it is, but will begin closing- out the stock at retail at
once and will continue until theistock is disposed of. We have
a large, well selected stock of Furniture, Stoves, Crockery, Glass
ware, Lamps, Art Squares, rfugs, Blankets, Comforts, in fact
nearly everything that goes (o make up a well selected stock of
I his- kind and the prices Lhes? goods will be sold at will make it
the buyers' opportunity to save big money.
Everything will be cash and please do not ask us to charge
goods. Those who owe us on open account are requested to call
and settle same promptly. Those who have goods on the install
ment plan will be allowed to keep the goods in accordance with
contract, but these payments must be met promptly. Remember
this is a bona fide closing out sale and that you can save 20 to 30
percent by taking advantage of this opportunity.
