We are now making as high grade Overalls as
are made anywhere and we are selling them for
less money 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 rrerchant w'll come to Le
tt ir without calling on us. We know we have as
good overalls as he can find and that we can save
him money on them.
W hen we organized this business we knew we
could make it prove a boon to the merchants of this
section. .We'knew that the cost of manufacturing
is sue h that by selling direct to the merchants .we
could ma"ke these gepds cest 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.

from all the regions round about

his competitors saw it they mar

while we k>ai idle about our

them: "In this fast age of push

when girls go back on gum;
when the small boy hates a

schemes; when mince pie makes
pleasant dreams; when its fun to
break a tooth; when all lawyers
