We Handle The
The first two weeks in May have been the busiest in our
history, ami our store organization was put to the test but we
1 handle the big trade promptly, and with satisfaction to the
public, Fact is we expected a big trade this spring, for we
knew our splendid values deserved it. Therefore we increased
our sales force and made all necessary preperation to give the
public the best possible store service. All through the busy
season you can be waited on promptly and politely here, and
at the same time get big value for your money.
Killing is a necessity. No one can
dispute that. Kven the tnun who trained
his horse down to one straw a day hail to
acknowledge that his plan was a failure
when the horse died. However you can
make a pleasure of the necessity if you
patronize our grocery department. Kvery
delicacy whieh you can think of, and
many you would’nt think of are ready for
you here, and we will Nell them to you at
If You Trade Here.
Everything you buy will be reliable in quality, correct in
style, and cheaper than you can get it elsewhere. Vou would’nt
find us making such strong osertions as this if the store did
not back them up. \Vre are very jealous of the high reputation
of this firm for doing just exactly as it says it will, therefore
nothing ever appears in our ads. that is not absolutely true or
more than true. It seems to us that this is just the kind of a
store most people would prefer to patronize, and our sales
record shows up that we are correct in our opinion.
