BRIEF HISTORY OF THIS FORCED SALE
We purchased in early October the $50,000 stock or the Union Shoe and Clothing Company of Chicago at 35
cents on the dollar. In November we purchased the entire $36,500 stock of the Plymouth Clothing Store, or Butte,
Montana, at 29 cents on the dollar. - Those two immense stocks, combined with our own, gave us a stock of over
$125,000 worth of Clothing, Shoes and Men's Furnishings. Immense as has been our business in the past three
months, we find we have bit off more than we could chew, and the greater part of the above stocks are still unsold and
unpaid for. The Union and Plymouth, as well as our own creditorsare pressing us for money. Their bills were
due January I, but we got an extension only to February I, and we must raise $30,000 IN THE NEXT THIRTY DAYS
OR BUST. To meet these bills, to save our business, our credit, everything we have on earth, we will sacrifice our
great $125,000 stock of Fine Clothing, Shoes and Furnishing Goods to one-half, and in a great many cases one-fourth
their actual value.
