THE SCBANTON TRIBUNE SATURDAY MOENING. OCTOBER 6. 1894.
The problem often if bow to be
well dressed on little moneyt Looks
like a difficult tbiag, bat it iin't- It'i
mostly in the buying.
Of two women wbo epend the same
amount for clothes, one will be well
dressed the other poorly dressed. The
knack, or the lack of the knack, of right
baying does it It'i a knack that can
be acquired and cultivated.
Theflrit thing ii to find the right
atore to boy from. It'i a oommon lay
ing, "one woman' money li aa good at
another." It isn't true. One woman
bnyi here and geti more for her money
than the other woman oaa get else
where. Money li only good for what
it will bay. It ii worth moit where It
will bay moit
We don't believe there'i a better place
in Ameriea to buy goods than right in
oar etore, Better in the eense of giv
ing better valaei and better service we
We buy aseloie as we can, and sell
as close as we can. In baying and sell
ing, we have the interest of oar patrons
in mind as well as onr own. Their in
terest is ours, for if we do not strive to
serve them well, we cannot hope for
permanent patronage and that's the
kind that pays.
We try to gain trade by deserving it,
Now is the time to begi n to look about
for Fall and Winter Goods. In onr
recollection there has never been a
time when styles and fabries were so
beantifnl, or so varied. There certain
ly never has been a time when goods
were to good for the prices. There
certainly was never a time when we
hnd so GOOD or so LARGE, or so
WELL SELECTED a stock.
We are proud of the stock and we'll
be glad to show it. Lookers are as
weloome as bnyers here. The more
people look around and the oftener
they come to see us, the surer we are
of their trade. Our business is based on
solid merit it wilt bear investigation,
and the closer it is the better we like it.
