KEEP YOUR MONEY AT HOME
Stop and consider whether you gain anything by buving from
distant firms. Remember when you send your money to a mail
order house you pay for the goods in advance without seeing them
and with no chance to compare the quality. You also pay freight
or express and when the article is received if it does not suit yott
you have no redress. It would not pay to return it and the firm
may not permit you to do so. If your order is damaged in trans
portation you lose it. When you send your money away from
home you are injuring your own town. Deterioration of the town
injures the value of your property. Buy goods at home and build
up your own community. If we have not got what you want We
will take pleasure in sending away for it. Never send money
away without giving us a chance to sell you the goods. Don't ask
credit of a dealer and then send away cash in advance for unknown
goods simply because the price is a few cents lower. We put these
things before you honestly. Think them over !

JVqs de ofe Is first cousin to silk
NAME ON SELVAGE
It isn't quite a silk, but it's silky nevertheless. Has the lustre the "feel" and
the "cry" of that expensive fabric. Pres de Soie is without doubt the fulfillment
of every wear promise made for a "guaranteed" taffeta and similar, fabrics. Pres
de Soie is so different from cloths of its class that its like a discoyery in looming.
Either of the two grades is pre-eminently desirable for making petticoats, slip
skirt and "showy" linings. In black and an iridescent display of soft colorings.
