This familiar announcement greets the eye wherever goods are sold, throughout
the length and breadth of the land. It gives confidence to the buyer and puts the
consumer on good terms with the retailer, and where the promise is strictly carried
out establishes a feeling oi permanent confidence between the two. In many cases,
however, the one price system is a mild fraud, operating only for the benefit of the
majority, while quite a liberal percentage or purchasers are given, on some pretext or
toher a discount, and think they are securing a great bargain on account of this sup-
posed liberal concession(?)
They forget that ai> extra 20 per cent, has been tacked on to the price of the goods
which still leaves a large percentage in favor of the owners thereof, and is one of the
potent reasons explaining how many houses have succeeded in a few years in bMIing
up large fortunes for themselves. This discount plan does not work with ns. Our plan
is to treat rich and poor alike.
Our extreme low prices are of equal benefit to

in almost every instance sell at lower prices than our competitors, consequently WE
CANNOT AFFORD to allow discounts, which are often asked us;'backedup by the ar
gument that "other houses do it."
If reliable goods at low prices count for anything, and fair and honorable meth-
ods of doing business are what the people of McKinney and vicinity want, they hare
an opportuity of showing their appreciation of such a concern by extending a share
of their patronage to us. Our employees are competent, polite and attentive; our
stock large and well selected, and our establishment one of the most conveniently lo-
cated and elegantly fitted in McKinney. and under no circumstances do we ever de-
viate from the original proposition embodied in this article,
ONE price to all.
