There is one thing we WOULD NOT DO under any circumstances on our own volition—we would not buy goods of lower quality than the standard by which you know us. Fortunately, the manufacturers of the bet ter grades, such as our customers want, had the same idea. Their reputation was at stake» so they maintained the same high quality. As the season advances, prices will advance in a measure. Right now they are as low as they will be during the exist ence of the war and without any hesitation we recommend that you buy— BUY NOW USUALLY, we ask you to "stop look and listen," and after convincing your self, do your buying at your pleasure, but this is an unusual season and we advise that you buy as soon as possible-not for our protection, but for your own. It is an undeniable fact that fabrics are advancing. The government requires so much that many fabric mills have cancelled orders and will guarantee no deliveries to their customers, even at higher prices. We are very fortunate in having secured a most representative stock of coats and suits bearing this well-known label: "The Palmer Garment" When you see these garments you will know that they typify the Fall and Win ter season and blend most beautifully with the falling leaves, the first few snow flur ries, the smell of burning pine, the tang of the early frosts. And you will see in the ideas expressed, the boys who are fighting in France, the soldiers who are marching to victory, the men who are doing their part right here to conserve our resources. Little snaps of color here and there—an emblem that represents America-and through all of it, garments that have actual individuality and very much comfort. These coats and suits are made under conditions just as strict-must pass inspection just as dose-as the uniforms worn by your sons and brothers. So in the "PALMER GARMENT" we offer you not only correct style, but perfect fit, individuality, genuine quality and most actual value. It is impossible to show our wide range of styles in this page-we ask you to come during this showing and make your selections, and if possible, your purchases. Cottonwood Mercantile Co.
