Indisputable Evidence!
I. Epstein don't have ta publish a"price
list of "snide goods" at seemingly low
figures in order to attract customers. His
prices are to low, and his goods so far
superior to others, that persons visiting
his store readily discern the difference and
seldom leave without purchasing. He
don't advertise solid gold watches at $18,
because the honest goods cannot be sold
for that money, and he don't keep "snide
stock"' on hand. Hh is, however, selling
genuine goods at prices which cannot be
duplicated this side or Chicago. He buys
strictly for cash and of the manufacturers
direct. He don t eeleot his stock trom
drummers' samples, representing third
class houses but direct from first hands,
thereby saving hit customers the usual
profits made by middlemen. Lpstein s
reputation is too well known to need any
comment. His business enterprise is not
an experiment, but an established fact.
Neither does he go around town whining
about hard times. He believes in driving
business, and when other dealers are
whitling chips, or looking down their nose,
he is kept busy waiting on customers.

prove that his stock is the largest and

Bankruptcy is oftentimes a sort ef heed
less self-drowning. A man is crossing a
deep stream, bearing too heavy a load of
valuables. He becomes more and more
exhausted in his struggles to keep his head
above the waters. It he could make up
his mind to drop a part of his load, he
could save a part and gain the shore. But
pride aud greed conrpel him to hold on,
and he finally goes to the bottom. So in
bankruptcy. A iurmer or business man
gets into deep water. He cannot bear the
thought of losing a part of his possessions.
and so he struggles on and on, hoping
finally to reach solid ground and save all.
But be fails in the contest and goes down
a bankrupt Tbey try to bridge over the
deep place by borrowing. Such contri
vances are too often only rotten affairs that
only put off the evil day, and make the
final catastrophe only the more complete.
The sure plan, if your load is too heavy, is
manfully to drop part of it, and pick it up
some other time if you can.
