Has been the trade at our little store. People realize that the
size of the store, the number of clerks employed or the size of the
stock carried has nothing to do with the money saving values
given. Its the quality of the goods and the low prices placed on
each article that counts.
The compulsory sale means a great deal to the buyers of
clothing. It means the best suits at lower prices than ever quot

This shipment of clothing Bent us through an error on the
part of the factory before we are ready for it makes it impera
tive that we get rid of it at once. In order to dispose of a large
shipment like this it is necessary to give great inducements and
make the prices so low and the values so big that people will
be compelled to buy because the bargains are irresistible.
And people who have called have found the greatest, grandest
and most convincing money-saving prices ever offered In Eastern
Oregon. We propose to close out every article by the end of this
month. Clothing and furnishing goods. Its up to you to take ad
vantage of this sale.
The manufacturers of the clothing who made the error, wJred
us to get rid of the goods and charge the loss to them.
Don't hesitate, but come in and see this magnificent line of
clothing and separate trousers. The price is the main thing to
you, but on that score we are positive to please you.
Prices on furnishing goods are more wonderfully low than
ever. We are doing It. Come In and see.
