Our stock of Silverware Is larger now than
ever before. We carry a full line of Rogers’
goods and the cheaper brands, and can sell
them cheaper than usual simply because we
buy them at the factories in quantities, and
are not dependent upon the profits in this
line alone, but we carry It along with our
goods on a small margin.
Nothing nicer or more lasting for a

lookers and buyers, rapid sales and satisfied customers, prove that we are receiving deserved recognition at the hands
of the buying public. We are giving our customers full returns for their money, and they are not slow in catching on
to our way of selling. Late additions of new and stylish goods for each of our departments makes our stock complete
in every detail for the approaching Holidays. Our usual LOW PRICES have made for us thousands of new
customers. We are encouraged in having inaugurated these great reductions in all our departments, finding that the
continued increase in our business will more than make up for loss of profits.

JUDGE OUR CLOIHING by its price and quality combined—not one without the other. You can find the same garments everywhere,
but quality or price taken alone is a poor index to worth. Reputation counts for something, because it takes HONESTY and MERIT
to acquire it. We buy our goods of REPUTABLE MAKERS. Our guarantee for goodness goes with everything we sell. Does it not
pay better to trade at such stores as ours that say to you: “Your money back if you are not entirely satisfied 'with your purcehas?"
