That the People

the fact that we are selling
groceries on a small margin of
profit, is evidenced by tho large
increase in our business. While

ALL THAT IS NECESSARY
Is to Tell The Plain Facts in as Few Words as Possible
Brevity is the Soul of Advertising, a
rare jewel possessed by too few.
The public care naught for the whys
and wherefores, it is FACTS, VALUES
and PRICES that interests the masses.
A few inches of space, a few truthful
assertions and a few genuine price
quotations that people read are better
than pages of guff.
Yesterday's business reached the
high tide, our sales exceeding those of
opening day. As the time goes by the
true significance of such a sale at such
a time is more apparent and as we re
marked yesterday, "Men will talk" and
a satisfied customer is pretty apt to tell
his friends and so it goes.
The way they are buying Clothing
and Shoes shows that our prices please.
Paul wears a smile that won't come off
and Clyde will soon be complaining of
over-exertion, but you know what I
said about brevity. .Here's what you
want to know: Ten dollar Suits are
$6,48, twelve fifty ones are $8.68, fifteen
dollar suits are $9.98, twenty dollar
ones are $13.48 and the $25.00 kind are
now only $16.78.
We still have a few odd Coats and
Vests which when matched up with a
pair of extra trousers isn't half bad.
These coats and vests are selling for
$1.48, though worth four times that.
Extra trousers are $1.98 for the two
fifty ones, $2.68 for those that were
three fifty, $3.38 for the four dollar
kind, and the five dollar ones at $3.73.
Overcoats went well yesterday at
these prices $10.00 ones $6.98, $12.50
ones $7.38, $15.00 ones $8.68, $20.00
ones $11.48 and $25.00 ones $13.98;
figure it out for yourself, only a little
over half price.
You'll have to hurry if you get in on
our Underwear sale. Six dollar silk and
wool $1.75 the garment. Five dollar all
wool at $1.63 the garment. Three dol
lar Coopers spring needle $1.13 each.
Cooper's Australian wool at 98c, the
75c Swiss ribbed at 35c each, and
regular 50c Derby ribbed are 35c each.
Everybody buys neckwear and why
not? 50c and 75c Ties are 38c, and the
25c and 35c ones are 21c.
Hats are worn this season too. Our
$2.00 ones are $1.12 and the $3.00 ones
50c heavy or light wool sox at 38c
and 25c ones at 18c.
And here is some more Shirt talk:
$1.00 shirts at 48c, $1.50 shirts at $1.13,
$2.00 shirts at $1.48, $2.50 shirts at
$1.88, $3.00 shirts at $2.28, and $1.50 to
$3.00 flannel shirts at 78c to $1.98.
Are you going away? If so get an
Oxford Bag. 15, 16 and 17 inch Bags,
regular $4.50, $5.00 and $5.50 at $2.48;
$2.98 and $3.48. Never again these
Yesterday's fair weather brought out
scores of the fair sex to help swell the
crowd, and right here we want to make
the prediction, if they use as good
judgment in voting as they do in buy
ing, Oregon will have better laws.
Our little shoe talk helped a whole
lot Packard Shoes, values at $2.48 to
$3.98 is something new to Salem people.
We have them in black or tan, button or
lace, all lasts including English.
Christmas goods too are on sale but
will have more to say on this subject
Tomorrow (Saturday) our store will
be open until 10 p. m. Nothing re
served except Ide collars, Holeproof
and Thoenix hosiery.
