FRANK J. MURPHY'S INSTALMENT PLAN In a common sense way appeals to those of limited means, who want to furnish their homes without ready capital, and who at the same time, want fair treatment, fair value and fair goods for the money they obligate themselves to pay for them. Frank J. Murphy's name in this city and State is a syno nym for honesty in trade—an equivalent for a security that a business transaction made with him is as just to the buyer to the seller, it is more, for the weight of advantage is thrown with the buyer, where, from whatever cause, the goods do not turn out satisfactorily. Our policy is to satisfy his patrons, let the cost be what it may. It has been » feature of his busi ness to guarantee quality—it is not merely an idle assurance, but a pledge that is kept inviolate. Among the thousands ol customers he has served during the past few years not one can be found who can truthfully say that the guarantee pledge has not been faithfully main tained. ,1 We do not advertise one thing and offer to sell you an We make no »» other of inferior quality, "It is not our way. reckless statements about bargains, which would mean bank ruptcy to the man who lived up to them. OUR PLAN—The plan that has brought an immense business, is to fix a fair figure on a fair value and to stick to it. The man or woman dealing with Frank J. Murphy may rest satisfied be or she is getting a full value for the money ex pended. With a large store always crowded, with goods and stock always maintained complete in variety by new daily arrivals, furniture of every description, carpets of every weave, stoves of all makes, mattings, oil cloths, curtains, shades, lamps, mattresses, etc., of all kinds, a house may be furnished complete on Terms like these : $1 Cash and 10 Cents Weekly on $10 Worth. $1 Cash and SI Weekly on $20 Worth. And every transetion made in confidential privacy. Class and assortment of goods equal to the best in the city. Prices low as the lowest ready cash establishments. Profits a e light but our business is enormous, hence the secret af our ability to sell goods on the first small cash pay ments, and the long subsequent credit, we simply crave an spection of stock and prices.
