yeais to get our business foundation set. Wc knew that a foundation set in

cessantly for all that meant a rock-bottom basis. Our prices have been kept
: on rock bottom, our credit system has been kept on rock bottom, and we are
pleased to announce to our friends that our business is ou a solid rock founda
tion. This we attribute to tho fact that we give every customer sixteen ounces
: of satisfaction to every pound, and throw in with every purchase a smile
! apiece for every member of his family. It is due also to the infallibility of
[ the gilt-edged guarantee that accompanies every purchase, and the satisfaction
and confidence with which our customers feel that they can send even a child
to trade for them. We may have at some time sold shoddy stuff by mistake,
but we have always Btood ready, and do so yet, to make satisfactory repara
