Persuade Particular People to Peep
into the
People's Store
To perceive the perceptive differences be
tween others and our prices before
they purchase.
Christmas has passed, and with it the bulk of our
Christmas Goods. Wa have, as near as we can estimate,
about $1000 worth of our stock left, which parties in
tending to make New Year's Gifts can purchase at very
low figures We do not believe iv storing away goods
and carrying them over from one year to another.
It is a maxim with us to sell our stock at vhe close of
each eeason at way down prices, and people will buy.
Purchasers are not wanting when inducements are held
out to them. At iea3t we have never found it so.
Sooner or later " Old Stock " links arms with "Broth
er Attachment,'' and the grim and gaunt Sheriff steps in,
shuts up the valves of light and and life, and stands in the
place of activity, cheerfulness and prosperity.
We cannot, will not pack them away They are yours
if you will purchase them, end at prices ths,t will infuse
life into inanimation and walk off of their own accord.
