It will serve to familiarize you with the present mar
ket prices. Prices have advanced so rapidly within the
past year that the small-town merchant has been placed
n the light of a profiteer, for the reason that the people
have had no way of making comparison of prices.
It has been our policy to keep our prices down to the
lowest level consistent with good business and high grade
Now that this new catalogue is out, you can readily
see the advance in prices over previous editions. WE
REJOICE, for the reason that we have looked this cata
logue over very carefully and find that we can success
fully compete with SEARS,. ROEBUCK & CO. right
down the line.
We have their catalogue in our store, and will be
glad to refer to it at any time there should be any ques
tion in the minds of our patrons asto ou ability to com
pete with them.
- We do not aim to run down the quality of goods sold
by mail order houses but in buying at home you have
the advantage of seeing just what you are getting, with
Quality Assured, at a price just as low.
We will endeavor to explain, fn next week's Leader,
why we are in a position to sell so cheaply and meet com-
petition of the mail order houses.
Think it over. It is good business to deal at home,
everything being equal.
