Y01 ATTENTION IS CALLED THIS
WEEK TO THE FACT
That Spring has ctum-, and the
big job i. to pave Main street.
That there is a shoe manufacturer in
the United States who makes one shoe,
one last, one color, one price; that this
is the best value for the reason that
all clForts center on this one article;
that 5000 pairs daily are turned out
from this factory.
That we carry this shoe for men and
the price is $11.00 the lest in the
United States for the price.
That new coats are coming in.
That Airs. Habb hits returned with a
beautiful line of spring millinery.
That you are to watch for announce
ment of spring opening.
That to avoid confusion, we wish to
make it plain that we are located on
the "Main Street Drive" not the State
Highway, iis was erroneously reported.
That whether Horn & Co. or Uxtnm &
Co., we are ready to measure you for
your spring suit.
That printed voiles reign supreme this
season, and we are ready with a su
That another saleslady is added to our
force for the spring season.
That a new shipment of hats for men
is in for spring wear; the styles are '
clever and the blocks very becoming.
That now is the time to get busy and
clean up, paint up, ginger up! Come
on now, make it "peppy." The house
will look better with new paint- the
yard more inviting cleaned up, and
YOU will look better, "by gum," with
a new suit!
That oru advice is to buy this spring
for your future needs for at least two
years in advance. Forget this talk
that prices are going to decline; you
will pay from one-fourth to one-third
and even one-half more before you will
see a decline. If our customers knew
as we know wjiat fall prices are going
to be, they would lose no time supply
ing future needs now, while prices arc
