Now, in this day of rush and push and advancing- prices, it stands you in hand to keep your eyes open to your own interest and see that you are not charged too much for what you buy. We took an early start this time and placed heavy orders for future deliveries on lots of stuff that we could close out for a good advance, and not have them shipped, but we don't want our profit that way. We want these prices right here, so that we will be able to undersell all competition. You no doubt hear every merchant crying- about advance in prices. There is an advance on some things, and they would have you believe everything is up. But this is not the case, as you can find out by coming to our house and seeing nearly everything in our stock selling at the same old price. We started here 15 months ago, when goods of all kinds were lower than they had been in 50 years. Our clothing departure has been such a success we have decided to give it 50 feet more of our floor space, and we have bought the largest line of Youths' and Boys' Clothing that the town has seen in years. Our line of Men s Goods will be "right up to snuff, and cheap according." We have placed orders for our clothing with some of the largest and best known houses in America. These goods will arrive about February 12th to March 1st and we went everybody to come and see. Remember! Remember! Remember! our great Garden Seed Sale. Yours, J. L. MDEESOI & CO.
