tell you so. Don't take our word for it but come and see.

We have gone to more trduble
and expense this year than' ever
before to offer the public the newest
things in Xmas presents. We do
this for two purposes; one is for an
advertisement, the other is to make
money. We know we can't make
money unless we have what the peo
ple want and sell it at the lowest
price, and that is why we have such
a large selection. Bigger and better
selected by a man of experience and taste. It is gorgeous

You ought to know I couldn't
afford to put an advertisement in this
paper advertising this class of goods
if I didn't have the goods. I have
the goods and have them at Ihe right
rices and this is the only way I have
o tell you of it. I can tell you of it
hrough the paper cheaper than I can
end a man to you to tell you. You
are under no obligations to buy goods
if you come and see for yourself.
1 hat is all we ask. If you are not
satisfied you are at liberty to go and
trade where you please.
We have the goods, the facilities
and the room; our stock of this class
of goods is just as much larger than
our competitors as our advertisement
is larger than theirs. We make a
specialty of this line and they don't.
They get a few from some jobbing
house to trade for bacon, eggs and
butter. You have no stock to select
from and you will not be as well
satisfied as if you would come and see
us. It is worth your time to come
and see this stock even if you don't
