T)o You Believe in Luck?
We don't believe very much in
luck but must admit we have been
lucky in buying the merchandise
we did at the time we bought it.
Merchandise especially in certain
lines has been advanced in the
wholesale markets. What they will
do in the future we don't know;
but one thing we do know and
that is this Until the goods we
have in stock and what we have
coming are sold there will be no
advance in our prices. When these
are sold we may have to ask a
little more so we advise that you
purchase your needs as soon as
