RED CLOUD, NBHKASKA, EEIJ. Hi, 11)00,
The Big Store keads
All Others Have to Follow.
Our buyers just returned from
market, where they replenished our
stock in all lines at former jobber's
prices. We are able to assure our
friends and patrons that we will offer
goods at former BED ROCK prices
although all lines are on the verge of a
stiff advance. Many have already ad
vanced. We are happy to announce
that our unusual facilities for buying in
large quantities and for spot cash will
enable us to mention 1899 prices in
iqoo. We therefore hope to see the
crowds at the Big Stori: continue. An
inspection of the Dry Goods, Carpet,
Furniture, Queensware, Boot and Shoe
and Grocery Departments will con
vince you that you cannot afford to miss
the 13k; Stork when buying anything
in our line. Our dry goods will begin
to arrive this week and other lines
about ten days' later.

A simple and safe way to clean costly and easily
injured articles is to make a suds of hot water and
Ivory Soap, and allow it to cool until lukewarm. This
solution, while very effective, is perfectly harmless.
Ivory Soap contains no alkali. It will not destroy the
surface or texture of any material, however delicate.
Ivory Soap differs from othejr soaps. It is more
carefully made, and the "materials usecTin its manu
facture are the purest and hest.
