NO DOUBT Surprised by my using the expression T I'll Move Dry Goods by the Ton! Geo. H. Wade Has' Ordered Me To Break "The Buyers Strike" So Break It I Will!- . " Buyers -AVADE- I am making this .statement fo'f'uW purpose of preparing you for one of tin! most unusual announcements in Clayton's mercantile history. I um going to tell you the plain facts pertaininij to (lie retail mercantile business without evasion or subterfuge, and with the certain knowledge or your ability to correctly judge the eircumstanecs and analyze tho peculiar situation that confronts us all today. No matter whether laborer, banker or merchant, AVE ALL KNOW THIS A period of universal ilcclining prices has suddenly sot in. The public almost stopped buying three mouths ngo, and they Were ri(jht always right. They went on a strike a just Mi ike. To offset this the manufacturer has stoupr.l production to reduce the supply and meet tho dccliniuii demand. They decline even to quote a price that has backbone cnouijh to", stand its ground! What does it mean? 11 means that we are nil up in the air, mid , that the very conditions we have hrol about will automatically stop further reductions in prices until the hysteria has passrd, and we are able to take a cool, sensible view of all sides of the situation and start! the ship or commerce on its true course. Hut Some one liad to be caught be tween the two millstones of Supply and Demand between the manufacturer nnd tho public. It could ho nono other than the retailer. He had to .buy his usual fall and winter stocks in ordor to serve you to meet your demands, and he had to pay the price the manufacturer named. Then what? The public stopped buying and the manufacturer stopped production! Will that brino prices down and put us all on n neighborly basis? I leave that to you to answer. Itut here's a certainty the merchant can't stop selliii(! He must keep his stock turning, keep his clerks busy, pay his Vent and other expenses. Those thhijjs he must do. And when ho fails to make expenses over his costs ho must net them under eost by usinn part of his original cupilul to meet current expenses, and that is suicidal. There's n stopping plaee! When prices start downward they arc just as. hard to hold on a reasonable basis as they are when tioing upward. Hut tlicro must bo a middle ground, n price basis fair to all concerned, else the merchant and manufacturer must go bankrupt and the con sumer rind himself nut of a job WILL SELL OUT not to cpiit business but to stay in business. To sell a .stuck today there's no such thing as making a profit. It's the shortest cut to taking a minimum loss anil start in business all over again on the ncvt market basis to be able to buy and sell on today's prices. GEO. II. WADE & CO. proposo to do that very thing and when the present stock is sold when the merchandise is in your hands at prices you are willing to pay, the firm's Hank account will show their actual worth to bo probably less than tuo-thirds or possibly one-half the actual cash value of the merchandise, thus not only wiping out all tho contemplat'cd profits but n good part of the originnl cost. No opportunity has been offered you in ypnrs like this. SALE STARTS WUDNEDAY, FERRUARY 1GTII, AT 10 A. ,M SHARP.
