the quantity gradually to a teaspoonful

In doves of one to four teaspoonfuls in

OUR GREAT SUCCESS .
We atiribut3 largely to the splendid bargains wo have been and still are able j
to give our customers. It appears that our extremely low prices have caused j
the impression that there is something mysterious about our system of . doing
. - 1 . 1 i '
business. A few words Aviil clear aw3v tho mystery- We sell! low because our
system of buying enables us to procure the largest bulk of good's lower thaDcau
be manufactured ; next, the low expense in proportion to the vast amount of
business we do allows us to sell at a very small trills above what the goods cost.
Our system i very simple, aud these words explain all. We wish the public to
understand tb3t we do not advertise goods in a fictitious way, telling you that
our goods aie worth double what we 3skfot them ; but we claim what we do
and do what we claim ; and we do most decidedly claim that the "gebds we are
offering tire below the prices asked elsewhere. If you purchase any goods from
us and dont find that they aro in every particular as represented, bring tbem
back" and.we will refund the money. i
