w e are IIOYV making as high grade Overalls as
-are made anywhere and we are selling them for
less n»one\ than the same grade of goods can be
procured- elsewhere. We ask the merchants far
and near to let us prove the truth of this assertion
to them. We hope no roerehant w'll come to Le

When we organized.this business we knew we
could make it prove a boon to the merchants of this
section. W T e knew that the cost of manufacturing
is sue h that by selling direct to the merchants we
could make these goods cost them less than the
products of any house selling tnrough jobbers. We
have proved this idea to be correct. We have done
but very little drumming, and yet the demand for
our goods has been greater then we could supply.

so fast you can't chop it out. The
farmers are having tough times
in trying to conquer general
grass and his strong and forti-.
fied hosts, but they are using
every means and efforts to sub

has been a hard summer on the
farmers to keep their crops in
proper condition. Owing to the
rainy season the wheat thresh

as the ground is so soft and
miry that their engines hardly
pan make the trip, but by some
