9 o K K A MIGHTY BLOW AT HIGH COST OF SHOES JOHNSON BROS. 116 SOUTH MAIN, One Door North of Wonderland Theater Inaugurate the most daring, wonder-inspiring public Sale of high grade footwear for all mankind ever attempted since Tulsa was an infant. $35,000 worth of the world's best shoes for men, ladies, boys, girls and children to be distributed to the people for less than the actual cost of the raw material.

We have been extremely fortunate in securing deliveries on fall and winter shoes, from America's leading and foremost manufacturers of high grade footwear. These goods were contracted for months ago. Our room is now crowded, packed and jammed to the four walls. We find ourselves hopelessly overstocked with one of the finest and most complete stocks of high grade shoes for the family ever brought together under one roof in the history of Tulsa to be sold in so short a time. In spite of the fact that the shoe profiteer is nbmad in the land placing all the traffic will bear on the price of shoes, .Johnson Pros. are actually holding shoe prices down closer to cost than any other shoe firm in the state. Any merchant that will reduce prices du'ring this mighty crisis shouhfobe classed as a public benefactor and cheered to the echo for his efforts. Clear as a bugle the truth rings out. In this advertisement we are making a conscientious effort to state the exact facts. Our highest aim and fixed determination is to keep this sale free from all exaggeration, avoiding all misrepresentation and the disgusting bombastic methods usually associated with a sale of this character. Johnson liros. have been in the shoe business in Tulsa for 10 months. " Our reputation for straightforwardness in busiiiVfs and fair dealing has never been ques tioned. We stake our reputation on the truthfulness of this advertise ment. We guarantee every price and every statement. It mav sound incredible that in the face of combined advances we are actually going to turn loose to the masses'thousands and thousands of pairs of high grade shoes for less than the actual cost of the raw material, but never theless it. is an actual fact and we merely ask you to come and test our .-ftfttemer.t.
