After taking- stock and winding- up our last year's busi ness, with a small margin of profit to our credit, that gives us satisfaction for our investment, we are ready to start the New Year on the same line to cut prices, sell cheaper than all competition and depend solely on the volume of our busi ness for our profit. We have demonstrated to our own satisfaction that iroods can be sold in this town at one-half the usual old-time profit and then leave a fair interest for the capital invested. We don't feel that we have reached the top yet. While we have done the largest business ever done in Morgan ton, we expect to row more this year than ever. We are better prepared than ever. We have more capital at our command and we have profited by mistakes that we will not make ag-ain. We are always ready to learn; we dcr.'t claim to know it all. What we do want is to grow and grow on. There is no reason why we can't do more business this year than we did last. You will remember our great Garden Seed Sale at let a paper last spring-. Where is the man that said the seeds were bad? We will have the same seeds this year 50,000 papers strong and at the same price. We are buying all kinds of Furs this season Rabbit Skins, Opossum, Mink, Musk Rat and everything- in Furs. Remember that it takes large sales and lots of customers to run a business on a small profit and the more we sell the cheaper we can sell. We want to see all of our old customers back this year and we want you to g-et your neighbors to try our system of doing; business. One of our customers told us that he had paid cash for everything- he bong-lit last year and saved enough to pav a ?3'0.U0 debt the best record he had made in vears. Everybody will have the same experience if they will trv it. NOTICE.
