Pardon a quotation from a letter received recently: "It was my privilege, as well as pleasure, to take a
friend fromjowa to your store on Saturday evening. He purchased a coat for his sister and was so pleased
with the courteous treatment received that he made a note of the name and location, and determined to make
your store his trading home in the future." Needless to state that this was incense to our nostrils, and we are
grateful to our friend for writing us.

And Now For the Most
Important Announcement in Years!
LAST SPRING we had placed before us such wonderful displays of Furs such perfect skins choice in
themselves and cured so perfectly. The prices were so much lower so very much below prices made in years
that we fell for it. And to use, as some one said, Bertie's expression, we "PLUNGED." We have had good
business better than in years BUT, and here's the RUB-WE HAVE TOO MANY ON, HAND. We are not
going to wait till after Christmas. Export business shot to pieces skins have advanced amazingly prices
quoted for Saturday are, we believe, 50 PER CENT less than ,we could make if our stock was bought at
present prices. Quotations will simply indicate reductions. You must see to really know. REMEMBER THIS,
that the prices before the cut were the lowest known to us for many years.
