NOTABLE PRICE REDUCTIONS
On All Seasonable, Stylish, High Grade Colored
Notwithstanding the unusual and most noteworthy character of the offerings
enumerated below this is not an effort on our part to indulge in sensational. advertis
ing. We are simply acting upon a modern progressive business principle, nVmely:
That of keeping stock in good condition by making regularly quick disposition of
odds and ends, badly broken lots and discontinued brands. After an unprecedented
spring business by far the largest ever done in Union City it is but natural that
we should find such accumulations in our stock at this time. Therefore these great
price reductions. Don't judge of the quality, stylishness or desirability of these
goods by our present prices, rather by the goods themselves. They are of reliable,
tested brands most of which are familiar to you. The styles are among the best of
the season and with but two or three exceptions the goods were bought especially for
this season. Our usual guarantee goes with every pair. Eastern fashion journals
state that this class of goods is growing in popularity every day as the warmer weath
er approaches and that colored leather shoes will be worn more this summer than in
several years, uwing to tne numoer ot lines ana great variety we can snow you

There are two ways to remove const!
pation; the wrong way is to drench the
bowels with a powerful, griping, drastic

easy aud mild laxative that tones up and
strengthens the bowels and leaves a
