What It Means to Buy at the Old Prices
Did you ever stop to fully consider what we mean
when we say we are quoting prices that are only pos
sible because we bought this merchandise long before
the recent advance and are selling them to you at the
prices that prevailed months and months ago? Did
you ever compare the prices we quote with those which
must of necessity be quoted by others who were not
quite so foresighted and consequently paid more and
are asking you more for Rugs? N-

'ft The Best is Always the Cheapest
Stands Unchallenged as the Best
In the World
COME IN AND EXAMINE THE PARTS, and permit
our expert salesman to explain why the "Free" is without
question the best Sewing Machine in the World. Note
particularly the care exercised by the makers to produce
a machine that will stand the hardest kind of wear without
giving way in any of its parts.
Note also how rigid every part has been made, so that
no unnecessary motion is produced to fatigue the operator.
Note the perfect ease with which it runs you do not have to the "treadle the
Pedal," it almost moves itself, once you set it in motion.
Physicians everywhere have endorsed this machine and that is a remarkable
fact in itself, for Sewing Machine Sickness is a thing that many women dread
and Sewing Machine Sickness is almost unknown to an operator of the "Free."
