Our business is increasing every day. Our sales the past week, despite
the hot and rainy weather, were very satisfactory. The public is beginning to
learn and appreciate the fact that we advertise no “fake" sales. We make it
a rule to advertise nothing but facts. When we advertise an article, come to
us, we have got it. We are not just out, or it will be here in a few days, or
you can only buy five yards. We have a few specials this week that it will be
to vour interest to investigate.
