Reason for the
About a year ago we started here
in Portland at great expense a
clothing factory in which we
have been turning out a large
amount of Suits, Overcoats and
Pants. We figured that we could
use about one-half our output in
our own retail stores, the balance
we endeavored to sell at wholesale
to other merchants. An extremely
dull season has made it impossible
for us to sell anywhere ' near the
amount' of good3 we could manu
facture and the result has been
to pile up clothing until we now
have fully $100,000 more goods on
hand than we should have at this
time of the year.

Owner Brownsville Woolen Mill
