Wc would call tho attention ot
tho driving public lo our assort
ment of whips, In no storo in tlio
county can bo found half tho stock
wo have on our rack. Our stock
contains a great variety of styles
and material, fancy and plain,run
ning in price from 15 cents to
$3.00. In making our selections,
our first move was to find a relia
ble manufacturer, and to confine
ourselves to but one lino of goods,
tbcreby avoiding a groat deal of
worthless auction stock. Wo try
to sell as good a whip as you aiv
willing to pay for, so if you arc
not willi"g to pay much.you must
not expect much.

Nothing should bo better appreciated by a patronizing public tlinii
reliablo mercbanls of whom they can make their purchases, confident
that they will not misrepresent their goods in order to make sales.
This is oftentimes u great temptation to tho merchant and in strictly
adhering to his principle, ho loses many sales, which are made by his
less scrupulous neighbors. In no business is there greater chance for
deception than in tho Hardware rade, as tho stock to a great extent
is manufactured of steel or iron, Fancy paint or bronze together with
a high polish, renders it difficult at times to distinguish the materials
and you havo to rely on either the reputation of tho manufacturer, if
ho has one, or tho honesty of the dealer. In many cases you would
never know, if misrepresented lo you, and the merchant's profits
theroby largely increased, which makes it a, great temptation to dis
honest dealers. Never in any instance, have wo misrepresented an
article in our storo, nor do wo knowingly allow any employee to do
so, and wo trust any article bought of us and not found as represent
ed, will be promptly returned. When we find it neccss'ary to use such
means in order to mnko sales, we shall move our stock to somo point
where square dealing is better appreciated. Wc do not claim to carry
tho cheapest line of goods. Our aim is to give dollar for dollar in
value. In selecting our goods, our first consideration is to buy only
from reliable manufacturers of standard goods, and secondly to buy aq
low as wo can, and this is all wo ask of you, examine our goods, get
our prices, and if neither suits you, don't buy. We cannot ask you
to do what wc rofuso to do ourselves, nor do wo allow the forcing sys
tem, t. c , trying to talk you into something you don't want. Wo
presume you know what you want when you come to sec us, and leave
such matters to your judgment its you will bo better suited in the end.
Thanking tho public for past favors, wo trust, by strictly adhering to
cur principle of Square Dealing, and giving dollar for dollar in value,
to have a fair share of your patronage in tho future.
