Ihristmas and New Years Greeting-
To our friends and customers of
Adair county and the city of
Kirksville We have been in
your midst as citizens three years
and have tiied to bo as obedient to
the laws and usages of your coun
ty and city as possible We have
tried to be enterprising in all our
undertakings and iu our business
relations with our customeis we
have tried to act fairly and square
ly in all transactions whether
small or large We believe we
have been tho means of bringing
a cash market on all kinds of pro
duce When we came to Kirks
ville there was not a grocer thai
paid cash for produce of aiy kind
and now a number of them adver
tise that they will pay ensh for
produce and they do so Put
who did it first Wo do not offer
any extra inducements to custom
ers to take trade for their pro
duce nor do we believe this is
right We do believe one pound
of butter is worth 20c in cash one
dollars woith of our goods is
worth 100 cents aud hence we
haye fought the idea all along of
offering 2 or d cents per pouna
more for an article taken in trade
Our motto has been to give a dol
lars wot th of groceries for 1C0
cents and to give 100 cents in
cahh for one dollars worth of pro
duce Now weaie truly grateful
at I ho end of three v ears of busi
ness in your community for the
liberal patronagu extended to us
Our associations have been very
pleasant and our business very
successful aud w hether we remain
in your midst longer or not we
will always feel we have been no
detriment to your community
having exibted in it for three verj
pleasant yeai s and wherever our
lot is cast lie it in Kirksville or
elsewhere it is with a great
amount ot satisfaction we look
back over our buinesB career of
tin ee years and realize va have
many true and waim friends in
this vicinity and may God pros
per this community much greater
in the future thau He bus in the
past To our many customers we
will say we have a bonanza for
you after Janutry 1 1S93 that
you have never had in Kirksville
to our knowledge Wo have ad
vertised n important chance in
our business at that time What
that change is to be will be pri
vate nntil February 1 lblJJ It is
sufficient fcr the public to judge
when you see our ad and prices
after January 1 1893 We ex
tend to- all our customers and
friends our heart felt thanks for
kiud patronage and a continuance
o same as long as in your com
munity whether it bo long or
