MOST POINT YET ATTAINED I
I spoke to you last week about Fine Clothing at a
low price. I speak to you again to-day. I must close
these two lots before I bring my fall line in. Time
is money. 1 must have room. I place before you 200
Men's Spring and Summer Suits at prices that will
compel you to stop and think when you see the quali?
ty. Don't confound them with the kind the chronic
bargain sale houses are offering. These are high-class
clothes, and fit to perfection.
and rare bargains have been chosen from the
mass of characteristic values now on hand.
They are not so loud-spoken as some ([nota?
tions that are printed, but their reality has a
more abiding reason which commends them to
those who believe in the best.
