OUR prices are absolutely rock bottom. All merchan
dise reduced to prices about one-half its value some
goods for less than one-fifth; others for a trifle more than
one-half. There's a reason: We must have money. That
is why we are selling seasonable, clean goods at less than
they can be bought at wholesale prices. This is the last
call for cash. We need the money and need it now. That
is why prices are cut to the limit. So better buy now; for
prices will never be cheaper in this nor any other sale.
