HALF THE BATTLE
Not only in war, but in any walk of life. We
should be prepared for emergencies, or to quote
the old saying, " put by for the rainy day."
Next Fall, just when you need a new Suit
or an Overcoat, the money may not be handy,
and you'll wish you had invested in one when
the price was cut to less than half.
If you buy a Suit now at $10.00, or an Over
coat at $12.00 or $14.00, you will have not only
the clothes, but the money saved on the purchase
to invest in something else. Think this over.
FREE OFFER e keep m snaDe and rePair any
Suit purchased from us, sending for
and returning it. This ought to appeal to the economical buyer
