D1D you ever feel tick ecV "Well you know how we feel now. We are tickled. Several things tickle us. You know when you
feel tickled you feel good. You are well. You sleep good. Your digestion is O. K Your business is satisfactory or you
would not feel so tickled. You never saw a sour dyspeptic financially embarrassed individual tickled. They don't go together at all.
Seveial things tickle us. In the first place several wiseacres here told us when we first came that we would not last three months.
Now that tickles us Wo have been here three years and we are glad we are here. Secondly business with us is good and that
tickles us. I hirdly. we have on hand an immense stock of winter goods and the weather has turned cold and that tickles us.
We are surrounded with all sorts of skin .fames in the way of Auctions Bankrupt Sales Quit Business Sale and in fact a general lale of woe by these same wiseacres and in spite of It our
bundle wrapper is so tired every night that he has struck for higher wages and that tickles us. Of ct un-e w will raise his wages and that will ticlile him. But bv k to the tickle again. It tick-
les us to notice how little faith most people place in fake advertising. And it 'tickles us how disgiMed they are when now and then some one does take in o- e of the doubtful bargains. Now to
make this tickle story complete you have tickled us and we are going to tickle you. Santa Clus was tickled when he looked in on our array of toys and holiday goods and saw the prices we had
put on them for he rea ized that every child bi this vicinity could be made hppy th s year. So you will be tickled when you see a number one Pur Beaver Chinchilla overcou that goes on sale
this week at $4 98. Or a genuine all-wool Kersey overcoat that will be sold for $5.85. Genuine Washington Beaver oveicoals in black and tan colors at $ft.50 we have stacks of them Big
Storm King Ulsters fiom 1.75 up to 7.75. Good ileece lined underwear for 25c per garment Men's all wool h-avy winter suits $4.85. Good heavy winter suits all sizefi for $298. Men's heavy
casoimere pants usually Bold for ?3 now on sale at $1401 A beautiful line of children's suits just rC' eived with fancy collars and vests to match ages 8 years to 8 yars on sale now at $1.60 to $2
And all through our big store in each department we have arranged a system of surprises that will not fall to tickle our many customers.
We fully realize that the only way to please our trade is to give them something good at a very reasonable price. Now if we handled old shelf-worn time-battered goods that have been
passed upon by a too intelligent public in other spates or even if they have been too long in this locality It makes no dlffi rence. Old stock Is old stock be it bankrupt or about to cau?e bank-
ruptcy. The fact remains that it was not the right kind of goods or was not bought right or it would not be here the object of such murderous atfcicks as they -vould have us believe. As has
been widely said you can fool all the people part of the time or part of the people all the time but you cau't fool a:i the people all the time. Thoy won't all be fooled and that's what tickles us
and makes our bundle tapper tired.
