ALL RIGHT, FOLKS! Here's your last chance to buy merchandise at these low
prices! Prices in the wholesale markets are advancing every day. We are un-
able to advise what the outcome of the whole thing will be. This we can tell you
with positive sincerity, "You can buy fall merchandise from us now at less than
One-Half what it will cost you next Fall. Why not be thrifty and buy your needs
now? My "hired hands," I mean employees, are busy now marking merchandise
even cheaper than it was last week. Be here this Friday and check things over.
Every dress in the house drastically
reduced to the extent that you will
want to buy several of them. Some
were formerly priced at $29.50. (Of
course this was too high!) But now
you can take your choice of the lot
$5-00 and $10-00
Most all sizes left. You will be smart
if you buy your child one and put it
away for next fall. I don't like to
work my girls too hard, so instead of
having them pack these coats away, I
am going to let you take your choice
of one big lot for—
Quite a few left. They have all been
picked over and tried on so much
that they are out of shape and dirty.
However, a good wash job will make
them look like $5.00. Come and take
a look at them—Everyone else has.
You might want to buy one at this
We have quite a few womens coats
left. Some were formerly priced as
high as $34.50. It is hard work on the
girls packing these heavy coats away
for next fall, besides moth balls cost
money. Come and help us out on
these. You can take your choice of
two big assortments at—
$5-00 and $10-00
Plenty of Chenille and Silk Robes
left. No telling what the women will
be wearing by this fall. We want to
sell these items now. Better come in
Friday and take a look at the lot we
are offering for the "measly" sum of
Canvas Gloves 25c
Mens and Boys
Jersey Gloves .... 25c
Mens Blue Chambray
Work Shirts $1.40
One lot Choice
Childrens Slippers $1.00
LADIES HOUSE SHOES
Some of these are possibly as old as
you are. You might say they are
"aged in the wood" but they will feel
mighty good these cold mornings and
look pretty good, too. We are adding
more shoes to each table. Come and
have a look at them. Choice of two
50c and $1X0
HARD TO GET ITEMS:
Sheets and Pillow Cases
Mens Dress Shirts
Mens Under Shirts
Mens Blue Denum 0'alls

MENS DRESS HATS
Ladies Slippers.. $1.00
Mens Khaki Pants $1.90
Mens Corduroy Caps 90c
Boys Sweaters... .$1.30
Work Gloves 98c
Most all sizes left in this lot of hats.
We must have had a "jillion" of these
deformed head covers. Some custo-
mers are buying them because they
look funny in them, (and they really
do), others are buying them for work
hats. Either way you can't lose much
011 the deal, and you will be doing
Honest John a big favor if you take
Folks, business has been good. We have sold thousands of dollars worth of mer-
chandise and still have plenty left. I am trying mighty hard to cut my stock
in half and if low prices will do the job, I will be successful in my endeavor. Re-
member, only ten more days to go from Friday, February 28. The sooner you at-
tend this Honest John Sale, the better bargains you will find! "HONEST JOHN"
