I wish to say that we were never
better prepared to handle a crop of

Our gin has been carefully overhaul-

possible condition. In addition to
that, we have instauled one of the
very best cotton cleaners that can
be had at any price and 1 propose

We sell you good bread, the best
you can get in Purcell.
We only give you two loaves for a dime, but they are full weight.
It is a simple trick to make three loaves out of the same amount
of dough that bakers use for making two loaves.
You can make it fluffy, and it looks as large as a regular five
cent loaf, but you have not gotten the . weight — that's what
counts in buying Bread.
In the pastry line such as cakes,
etc., is the best that can be found.

Of Interest to You
It is essentially important that you buy GOOD
GROCERIES, because they help most in the pre para,
tion of a good meal. A good cook must have the right
kind of groceries. We offer you a stock of good, clean,
fresh supply of groceries-no shelf worn goods, but eat-
ables of known quality and purity. We sell at a close
margin because we sell for cash. Brin^ us your chickens.

The cotton crop of 1914 looks like the best in years, coming as it
is. after two or three backward seasons, the farmers will need all
they can get for it. A good sample and a good class of ginning
are needed by the farmer to get the best price. The Anti-Trust
Gin has been overhauled and new machinery installed so as to
turn out the best sample possible and invites your ginning busi-
ness. We can tin your "bolleys" this year.
Yours for a prosperous season,
The Anti-Trust Gin
