Our Platform and Policy
It has never been our policy to describe
our merchandise :n lurid language. We have
too much respect for the common sense of
the people on whom we depend for our pat-
ronage. The success of A. II. Smith has
been built on honesty. The straightfor-
ward, honest" policy that has formed our re-
lations with our customers. Statements
which will not hear the searchlight of rea-
son have not been tolerated nor will they
during this Kreat CLOSING OUT SALE.
In the past A. H. Smith has enjoyed the
confidence of the people and will continue
to do so right up to the end.
The Bargain Flood-Gates
will be thrown wide open when we usher in
this Greatest of all Closing Out Sales. We
will do exactly as we advertise and carry
out every assertion to the letter. Every
price has been cut and then some. You will
find this sale the Most Titanic Slaughter of
rich values that has ever dumfounded the
public by far. Furthermore you will find
no Half Way or Chicken-Hearted Methods
in price reduction. We are determined to
sell and are making prices that will compel
the public to buy.

Smash the High Cost of Living a Body Blow!
This great Closing-Out Sale should prove a magnet for the people of Oolagah and this part of Oklahoma.
In these days of high prices our Government tells us to conserve, and this will be an opportunity for the thrifty
buyer to make their dollars go much farther than usual. This is a genuine Closing-Out Sale and every last
article in the store must be sold. Much of the merchandise was contracted for months ago and on account of
market conditions could not be produced today for what we are offering it at. The coming days will be ones
of golden opportunity. Be sure and take advantage of them.
Here’s what’s next.
