CALDWELL, BURLESON COUNTY, TEXAS, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1897.
I have just received 580 dozen of them from headquarters, which is the second largest single shipment
into the State of Texas this season. This may sound a little "faky" to you, hut it is a fact, nevertheless.
These goods were bought at olcjprices and will l>e sold at old prices as long as they last. The new tariff
has not U'i-n added yet, but some of the numbers will soon l>e advanced alxmt thirty per cent, and there
will be an advance all along the line, s< I have taken the precaution to protect myself and my customers for
this season at least.
