When Christmas comes you will
spend some money for candy, won't
you? Well, last Christmas I made and
sold 4% tons of pure candy, candy
which I was proud to sell because it
was made in my own factory and I
could guarantee it to be pure and
wholesome. You can let your children
eat my candy and not be afraid, be
cause my guarantee is back of every
pound I sell. It is this the best can
dy money and brains can produce. I
am not new at this business. I have
hai 17 years of handling candy. I don't
know it all, but I do know how to
make good candy.
I am goiiig to make at least as
much candy as I did last year and
shall make you a price on it as low as
you could buy it from a wholesaler,
even if you were in business. These
prices are for you alone and I will
have candy from 7^c a pound up. In
this age prices count and quality is al
ways considered. Come in and see
more candy in one room than you ever
saw at one time before. Remember
we make all this candy and it will be
fresh. I am going to make this a real
bargain sale for you. We are now mak
ing for Christmas, broken mixed
which has 35 different kinds and fla
vors in. Of this kind alone we make
1,500 pounds. Also crimp, curls, fish,
moss squares, crystal, cream, butter
fly and beauty bon bons in the mixed
candy and also about 125 other differ
of chocolates, peanut, cocoa-
nut and nut candies.
I am right back of Friedman's dry
goods store, on Court street. No. 111.
Look for the big banner "Headquar
ters for Christmas Candies."
Don't buy until you see this candy.
I can save you money. Remember
more candy, better candy, for the
least money,' than any other place on
Neb., where they will make their
future home. Miss Bettie Garber ac
companied Mrs. Hopwood to Chambers
and will make her home their also.
