You’l Have to Burry if you would keep up with the crowds that visit our store daily, purchasing the many novelties we are offering to the trading public. We haven't time to mention the many articles we carry in stock, neither do we quote prices in print. We make the price over our counters when the goods are shown. Here you have an opportunity of comparing price with quality, and we state right here that if after comparison you don’t find that we sell as cheap, or a little cheaper, than the other fellow, we will not insist on selling you, for we want every customer who visits our store to feel satisfied that they are getting full value for every penny they spend with us —we had rather miss a sale than to have a customer dissatisfied with a purchase. Upon this theory we are building up a trade that we feel proud of, and one which we flatter ourselves will stay with us. We carry in stock almost everything that is usually found in a General Store, but f we would call attention especially to our stock of SHOES and SLIPPERS. We have a line of custom work that cannot be excelled in quality, style and finish, and the prices which we are offering them will be of interest to you. Wash goods is another special feature with us for the summer trade. It is worth your time to call and see the many new and novel things we have in this department. Give Green Trading Stamps. Yours to serve, Barnesville Mercantile Company. Since moving into our new store our trade, though highly satisfactory before, has almost doubled in volume. The people appreciate our efforts to provide them with everything they need, and have learned to regard/ our place as their headquarters. The wants ot' the trade is our constant study, and, without presumption, we claim that our years of experience and unlimited cash reserve puts us well in the lead of all-professing competitors. Having reaped the rewards of a mammoth spring business, we will demote the next two months to Warming Up Things in Warm Weather. So, without regard to any certain day in the week, or any certain hour in the day, the process of price-cutting will be continually going on. EVERY DAY WILL BE BARGAIN DAY, and the same prices w T ill prevail for Ba.m. as for Gp. m. Our line of WHITE GOODS, EMBROIDERIES and LACES has caught the trade. This stock is still unbroken, and no customer can afford to overlook it. As to SHOES, remember we have the exclusive control of L. M. Reynolds men’s fine shoes, and show Golding & Co’s, ladies and children's fine shoes and slippers. No use to say we keep everything. No use to say we discount the other man in price.' No use to promise more courteous attention. But suffice it to say our pleased customer is our best adver tisement. Always come to see us. BARNESVSLLE MERCANTILE CO.
