To-my friends and patrons :-
For the past four months I was compelled to keep
out of the limelight of advertising owing to the fact that
in the month of June I have placed an order for foreign
woolens, and on account of the war disturbance in Europe,
my goods did not arrive until Monday, October 9.
Unfortunately, I find. myself with an immense stock
of woolens on hand, with almost one-half of the Fall sea
son gone, and in order not to get stuck with such an im-
mense stock, I have decided to make a sweeping reduction.
It will do you good to examine these new style suitings,
containing such famous makes of woolens as Canafield,
Donegal, Gibson, Walter Scott and Lamagin, Tweeds and
Homespuns ; also the very latest designs in Tartan worsteds,
s Never before were you able to buy in a Popular
Priced Merchant Tailoring store this kind of j woolens, owing
to the fact that with the high tariff which was on these
goods, you were only able to get a suit from $45.00 to
$55.00 - with the greatly reduced tariff it has enabled 'me
to buy these foreign goods direct, and I will sell these
elegant suits from $28.00 to $35.00, for a short period
only until the stock is greatly reduced. A look in my
windows will convince you.
I also wish to call your kind attention that
included in this shipment I received over 800 yards of
Skinner Brothers1 famous blue serge, known the world over
to" be absolutely the best. This serge is intended to sell
for $38.00 a suit, but for a short period only I will make
you a suit to order with the best of linings for $29.50.
I do not have to brag about my ability and integrity
in turning out fine garments. Over twenty-five y;ears in
the Merchant Tailoring business speaks for itself.
An early call will be highly appreciated by
