Of argument is not near as convincing as one little back
able bargain. Let politicians "cry havoc," but the gen
erality of politicians puts one out of conceit with politics
and we believe with Pope, that "party is the madness of
the many for the gain of the few." From every hill-top
vale and valley for the past sixty days has the calamity
howler been shouting death and destruction, and all on
Billy Wilson's Little Bill.
What the ultimate result of this change of policy
will be we leave to futurity to solve, but the immediate
result has been a general reduction of price onfall
woolen goods. All of our fall woolens were sold to us
at prices made in anticipation'of the change in the wool
schedule on January,!, 1895.

The above comparisons have been made on staple goods
that we carry every season, the price of which is familiar and
well known to all people, therefore every one will be able at sight
to sae and appreciate the reduction in price. There are other
articles infwhich wool isjusad in the manufacture, vis: knit good
Hoods, Facinators, Mitts, Hosiery, Shawls, etc., on which there
have been reductions as radical as the above, but are impossible
to list intelligently.
A Long String of Fish
Is not carried up a side street. It's just about as important to let
folks know you've got something good for them, as it is to have it
to begin on. Wasn't there something said once about burying
your talent in a napkin? Having done our duty by securing the
goods and calling attention to them, we leave you to do yours by
seeing them. For all who visit us we have bargains, for those that
Don't Go to Omaha !
Why? Because it will not pay you. Omaha dealers cant buy
goods any cheaper than we can, therefore can not sell them as
cheap, for it is a well known commercial truth that it costs ten per
cent more to do business in cities than in towns. Some Omaha
dealers are great believers in the popular error, that "the American
people like to be humbugged." To say that we, as a nation, enjoy
being humbugged is to insult our intelligence ; to attempt it is to
draw down a swift and terrible punishment. We, as a nation, not
only know a good thing when we see it but we also appreciate merit
when we meet it. The transparent fraud resorted to by Omaha
dealers in offering a limited supply of a staple article for a limited
time, with the expectation of making it back on the whole amount
purchased and it is not generally very hard to find out what item
on which the loss was recovered is ridiculous, if the purchasers
would reflect on the matter, because nothing is gained by paying a
few cents less on one article, then giving it back a half dozen times
on another purchase. '
We've Heard it Said
That times are hard, and in view of this fact it behooves eve ry one
to go where they can buy the cheapest, for
"There is some soul of goodness in things evil
Would men observingly distill them out."
Therefore buy your fall bill of us and you will find the times are not
as hard as they might be. We are confident that we can save you
from twenty-five to thirty per cent. We have customers who come
twenty to thirty miles every fall to buy their winter supplies from
us. Occasionally one or two stray away and go to Omaha, but
they only try the experiment once, the followidg year they are back
trading with us. Omaha dealers know this type of customer, and
never expecting to see them again, have no compunctions about
"sticking them," and the unlucky purchaser finds on returning home
that their so-called bargains "that afar shone so grand, turns to
nothing in the hand." With us transient trade is all right for super
structure, but steady custom is the foundation of a business. That's
what we are working for. We propose to not only give you prices
that will attract you, but treatment that will hold you. By doing
this we will disprove the old statement that "there's no friendship
in trade," because a man had better get along without customers
than without friends.
