tional reputation go home and an-
nounce that they will bring capital-

This is our 5th year in business. Our Cash Sales in
crease every year. Why? Because we give as good val-
ues as can be found anywhere in this country. Some of
the wise (?) ones who will read this ad. predicted our failure
inside of 6 months, when we began business.
Did we fail? No. Why? Because we studied our bus-
iness, treated people right, collected for almost all the
goods we sold on time, paid our debts, and are here yet,
trying to keep in stock such goods as the people in this lo-

We thank our customers tor their patronage in the past,
and shall strive to merit your trade and good will in the
future. New bills of Shoes and Dry Goods on the road
to sell between now and the 4th of July.
