E TAKE this opportunity to express our appreciation of the liberal patronage the public has bestowed upon us during the year 1917. It is a source of much gratification to us to number among our present customers many who were our customers at the beginning of the year, a fact which demonstrates to us that a merchandise establishment built upon the principles of fair dealing, dependable merchandise and prices consistent with dependable merchandise is an establishment built upon a solid foundation. We thank our friends and customers for their patronage, and wish to all a New Year of Prosperity. During the year to come, we hope, by giving you $1 in value for the $1 received, to merit a continuance of your valued patronage. Respectfully, W. E. LIDYARD.
