The Secret of our Success
is that we are daily watching for bargains that ve
can give the people at prices that they appreciate.
Now we have it for you.
Down in a Southern city we bought a complete
and up-to-date stock of bankrupt goods at about one
half the manufacturers cost and we have decidkd that
our customers shall have the benefit of this pur hase,
and they go on sale at about one half their actual
value. This is no old out of date stufi, but brand new
goods, botight for the spring trade for a city of about
50,090 inhabitants, and the style and quality of these
goods is perfect. The goods are now on sale
and will last until they are all sold. We
haven't space to quote many prices but Only give you
an idea of the great values of this sale. Get ready
and take advantage of this sale, for they won't last long.
