& Most all our goods were bought before the advance. We want everyone to give us a trial this spring. We have bought
early and can save you money on most every purchase. We placed our orders early last, fall on most jroods that we expected
to advance. Especially are we cheap on shoes, as we own all our shoes at the old price; also most all our orders for dry goods
were in before the advance. We use the utmost care in buying, as we know goods well bought are already about sold. Our
strong point is in our buying. We use tiie same care in buying a stock of pins as we do in buying clothing. It makes no differ
ence what you may want, we own it at the lowest price.
Please bear in mind all we ask of those who have never traded with us (although they are scarce) is to give us a trial.
There is some satisfaction in trading where you know that every purchase is bought at the lowest possible price, and
where every mistake is made right and where every single purchase is warranted to give satisfaction or money refunded,.
We Have a Fine Line Ladies' Shirt Waists, the Latest Styles anci Lowest Prices. We Have
a Fine Line of Men's and Boys' Summer Caps.

William Clark Moore was born in
Ferry county Ohio on November !•,
1824, died at his home two miles
west of Hennessey, Oklahoma, on
May 21, 1900.
Mr. Moore was brought up in the
old school Presbyterian faith and
remained true to his early teachings
through life, being unable to believe
that the changes which oceured in
the church were altogether in the
teachings, of Christ. Hut he is gone
now to the bourne from whence no
t raveler returns and as the Congre-
gational minister from llenuessey
spoke to the kind people who stood
in ray door drinking in the words
which fell from his lips, some hearts
were softened and were made bet
ter, and I can say many thanks to
him and others who lent helping
hands to bury my dear dead.
