' , , , — '■ ' ' . U Begins Wednesday, Jan. 11, 1922 ' r * Wait For It! Those who are in the habit of trading at DRAUGHON*S already know what a DRAUGHON SALE means. We do not have to tell them how great the values are. But, for the benefit o those who are not familiar with DRAUGHON goods, prices and meth ods, we want to emphasize the fact that into the few sales we conduct there goes none of the goods sold on'wholesale markets solely for special sale purposes. The goods we of fer in th'ese*ales are the same that have been offered you all season—no “seconds,” no defectives, none that is not just exactly as we represent it to be. The object of this sale is to clear out the surplus winter stock. Within a little while we will be buying spring and summer goods. We must have room for these. All winter goods “must go. To get rid of them wehave marked them at figures that will be more than attractive to you. If you have not already provided yourself and folks with all the win ter wearing apparel you need, this will be one golden opportunity for you. Draughon sells only goods that he can recommend I REMEMBER THATl • V ,*\, *.«£• - •' i ■>' lU v I*- i-'rlrT' W T — ■ - - - - - * _ _ _ I J. W. DRAUGHON
