This Is Also a Paid Advertisement
We do not believe a whole lot in expending much money for newspaper advertising so that we are
thereby compelled to ask increased prices for our goods. However, we do, just occasionally like to let
EVERYONE know that this store is now as always selling furniture and other housefurnish at lower
prices than most other stores.
We do a large business under an economical expense system which enables us to quote the lowest
possible prices on EVERYTHING. Our prices are uniformly low on all our goods. Our stock is one of
the largest and most complete in the city.
Our customers will tell you that this store is not only one of the largest, but the best store in which
to purchase their home needs. In fact, our customers really prove to be our advertisers and they
have done it very well indeed. We believe thoroughly in a business system that will convince the cus
tomer that what he purchases here is at least just a little better for the same money, or as good for less
money than he can obtain it for elsewhere.
This is the system which has built up our business to its present large proportions and is still doing
good work for us. We try our best to give our customers the most for their money and our experience
has been that the customer can always be depended upon to return the favor in some good way.
You may not see our advertisement in the newspapers very often, but we ask you to chalk this down:
When you want to buy good furniture at the way-down price, this is the store that is sure to be there
with the goods you may want and with the price that will suit.

Increase in Weight Ten Pounds or More
A Physician's Advice
"I'd certainly give most anything to
be able to fat up a few pounds and stay
tlint way," declares every excessively
thin man or woman. Such a result is
not impossible, despite past failures.
Thin people are victims of mal-nutri
tion, n condition which prevents the
fatty elements of food from being
taken up by the blood as they are when
the powers of nutrition are normal.
Instead of getting into the blood, all
the fat and flesh producing elements
stay in the intestines until tliey pass
from the body as waste.
To correct this condition and to pro
iluec a healthy, normal amount of fat
the nutritive processes must be artifi
ciallv supplied with the power which
nature has denied them. This can best
be accomplished by eating a Sargol tab
let with every meal. Sargol is ft scien
tific combination of jix of the best
strength-giving, fat-producing elements
known to the medical profession.
Taken with meals, it mixes with the
food and turns the sugars and starches
into rich, ripe nourishment for the tis
sues and blood and its rapid effect is
remarkable. Reported gains of from
ten to twenty-five pounds in a single
month are by no means infrequent. Yet
its action is perfectly natural and abso
lutely harmless." Sargol is sold by G. A.
Ciorgas and other good druggists every
where and every package contains a
guarantee of weight increase or .ioney
Caution: —While Sargol has produced
remarkable results in the treatment of 1
nervous indigestion and general stomach j
disorders, it should not. owing to its
remarkable flesh producing effect, be
used by those who are not willing to
increase their weight ten pounds or
