as does Mercury, but that doesn't count for us. Sustained excellence pushes the. world ahead. It's a wonderful year of achievement for the
house of Olds, Wortman & King. We're breaking records right and left, and we mean to close the year of 1904, that's been so good to us thus:
far, with the record sales of our mercantile life. We feel a pardonable pride in the new building soon to be thrown open to the public that,
when added to the good "Old Homestead" store, will make this the best appointed retail store in all the West. The added acres of floor space
will enable us to "let out links," as it were, all over the house, enlarging the selling space which has heretofore been overcrowded entirely inade
quate to accommodate our vast arid rapidly growing patronage, improving the character of the service, and adding in multitudinous ways to the
comfort, convenience and safety of our great public. It has been stated repeatedly of late by entirely disinterested observers, that the greater Olds,
