Extends to you a Special Invitation to come to our Store for your Fall bill. We are not selling goods ac-
cording to what they are worth today, if we were we would mark all of our goods up about 25 per cent
We bought some of these goods nine months ago and we are giving you this special invitation to partici-
pate in the saving. We sold the best 8-oz. Duck for 30c per yard.
If you paid more than this you just lost 5 cents per yard. We can save you just as great percent on your fall bill. We have made it a rule to sell
everything at a small margin of profit on what we paid for it, regardless of what it's worth today. To illustrate; this week we received a new price
on one certain shoe we are selling. The price at the factory is $8.25. We are selling this shoe for $7.95. Now most merchants would mark what
they have on hand of this shoe up to what they will have to sell the shoe for when they buy again. Not so with us. Every shoe we now have goes at
the OLD PRICE!

white and dark colors per
A good heavy work shirt $1.00
An extra good one for $1.25

and Fancy colored Caps start-
ing at 75c and up to $1.95.

We are not going to tell you they are not high, they are, but as early as last February we began to
buy shoes to be delivered this fall, and shoes today, have advanced as much as 50% in some lines,
but we are selling Shoes on the same basis that we bought them. There is not a shoe in our stock
we can buy today and sell anywhere near as cheap as we are now selling them, but, we are staying
with our original practice and that is to mark the goods we have bought at a cheap price, at a
small margin of profit and when we have to pay higher for an article, sell it at higher price and not
mark up what we now have on hand. Our stock is now complete from an infant's shoe to the new-
est creation for men and women.
Men's and Young Men's Suits

ma showing such an elegant line of

that Jack Glazier of Mangum has

He is to play with the Detroit Amer-

26 out of 36 games he pitched the past
season in the Michigan Ontario
League. He has pitched a no hit, no
run game and a 1 hit no run game.
He is also a good batter, and accord-
