KENNETH EVANS) Starting- with a cleaning shop the growth of the business of John M. Miller, clothing, is indicative of the possibilities for success which are available in Hays to those who believe in working and giving satisfactory service to their customers. Today Mr. Miller operates one of the leading Gents' Furnish ing establishments in Ellis county and enjoys a very extensive cleaning and pressing business which thor oughly covers Ellis county and into some sections of adjoining counties. Mr. Miller established this business in January, 1919, starting on a small scale and gradually' stock ing up in keeping with the patronage which has been accorded him. Today he carries a complete line of men's furnishings including the celebrated Kuppen heimer line of clothes, Florsheim shoes, Ide shirts, Arrow collars,, interwoven hose, and many other na tionally known lines which are recognized by the well dressed man as the very best merchandise that he can secure. Mr. Miller had this feature in mind when he began putting in his stock realizing that if he expected to develop a high class business that he must carry the merchandise and to say that the man who wishes to be well dressed will always find here the very latest in style and fabric will in a measure give the reader some idea of this business. Another attractive feature of this business is the tailoring line. In case the customer does not find just what he wants in the way of ready-made clothing he has hundreds of clothing samples to choose from and Mr. Miller can secure in short time just the suit made exactly as the customer wants. Being engaged in this business for several years, measurement and fit on tailored garments are always guaranteed. A complete stock of high grade luggage includ ing bags, suitcases, trunks, etc., is a part of the stock how carried by Mr. Miller and in this department his extensive buying connection enables him to get any special designed luggage that may be desired. The old adage that clothes do not make the man is potentially true but it is also an absolute fact that a man's personal appearance has much to do with the success which is accorded him in fighting the problems of the every-day business w7orld. For a business man to neglect his appearance is courting failure. One of the most completely equipped dry cleaning plants to be found in "Western Kansas is a feature of this business. The equipment in this de partment includes the very best that the market af fords including washers, extractors, steam boilers, dry room and necessary equipment for a successful operation of this business. Two Hoffman steam pressing machines have been installed by Mr. Miller to keep pace with the , growth of his business. These machines are recog- ' nized as the acme of perfection for this class of machine and guarantees the most satisfactory work. A delivery truck is also a part of the equipment which is used constantly in making deliveries and calling for work. The patron of this institution liv ing in Hays has but to call the institution on the tele phone and the truck is immediately dispatched. In fact, Mr. Miller has made a specialty of one day service on cleaning and pressing, doing his cleaning in the forenoon and pressing and . delivering in the afternoon.. The garments are handled in a careful manner and never are they subjected to severe wear and tear. Buttons are sewed on, rips are repaired and the garments are returned to the owner ready for wear. The plant has; a capacity of forty suits daily. "'. Mr. Miller also enjoys a very extensive p'arcel post business from Ellis county and adjoining coun ties and this is a business which is rapidly develop ing.i Those living outside of Hays and who want particular work done in cleaning and pressing will do well to send their work in by parcel post. A nor mal solicitor as well as a high school solicitor are em ployed by Mr. Miller to keep him in touch with stu dents who desire particular work. No fabrics are too dainty to be handled by this institution in a thor ough satisfactory manner. With the employment of five men this is an in stitution worthy of all the support that. can be ac corded it as Mr. Miller has proven conclusively that he understands the operation of an up to date place of business of this kind.
