Oak Hall is the place;
and its practice may be
summed up in a few words.
If you get there what you
tlon't want to keep at the
price, you return it, and get
your money back.
This means a great deal
more than appears on tlie
surface. It means that you
are not going to get what
you will not want to keep at
the price, if the merchant can
help it. It means that the
clothes you get there will be
of honest cloths, honestly
made; and that they will
cost you less than as good
clothes can be got for else
where. It means that they
will be ever)' way better
worth your money than you
can get elsewhere for the
