The mystery of our pronounced and uneqnaled
success ia not because wo are gifled with any nuper-
natural qualifications , nor is it due to our liberal ad
vertising ; not in our "system" nor in our ability to
convince people that black is white when it isn't.
The explanation is very simple. The position wo
have acquired as tiio loading and most successful Dry
Goods house is only due to the fact that wo give the
BESra.-tioleal Ihe LOWEST POSSIBLE PRICE ,
and doing so enables us to hold our custom. Best LL
Muslin always in stock at 3u to customers only ; other
prices according.
