iWe realize we haven't the only food store in the universe nor is it possible for us to al

by the continued suport of the People who by experience have found that to suport lo

lected the Market as the store better fitted to Care for their food requirements than
would be possible for any store depending upon New York for its policy of operation It
has been the practice in the past and Still is with some stores to take three or four Items
of a well known Value and reduce the price even to a Point showing an actual loss (the
loss of course is made up by adding to the price of Items the Value of which is not so
well known) for the purpose of Creating an impression that all prices are equally low.
