The house that places before you stubborn and unyielding facts and figures-—that solicits your attention, not through favor or pretense, but
prices that will teach you in the silent logic of truth, the difference between dealing with live and dead men. Our business is conducted upon
new advanced ideas, crowding out the old—-pluck instead of luck—-cash instead of credit-—brains in the place of cheek—and science and
ability beating back and crushing into oblivion these moonshine merchants with their tough and tremendous long time prices.
We shall lead the season by offering a stock that has never been equaled in price or quality.
Suits that are perfect in fit and perfect in workmanship. Suits for the young, the old, the short,
the tall, the large and small. We call special attention to our children's suits, of which we have
a nice assortment. Dry Goods, Shoes, Hats, Furnishing Goods, &c, We
shall continue to sell at popular prices. Don't hesitate to call on us when you
need anything in your line. WE WILL SAVE YOU MONEY. You may
search the record of fancy and fiction for '1 paralell to the sublime audacity and
Confident courage, with which ^^B^we unfurled the beautiful red
Flag that adorns our building ; we planted it there with the determination that it should remain,
not only as a sign of LOW PRICES, but also as a crusher to competition and opposition. Its
