Winfield Courier, Thursday, January 21, 1886.
You have read what I have to say of cost sales; that I sell goods for profit and buy them so as to compete with the trade. To convince you of these facts, I have bought and will open on Saturday next (and not until then) one case of calico, Ten Yards for 25 Cents.
A double width Cashmere at 25 cents per yard; Alpacas all collars at 10 cents per yard.
Several lines of dry goods at correspondingly low prices. 78 pairs blankets, white and colored, at $2.37; worth $4.00 per pair; 10 dozen Turkish towels at 5 cents each.
A line of Cloaks and Shawls! At less than others can buy them. Ladies’ and Gent’s underwear and a full line of hosiery at prices that will surprise you. Come and be convinced that I can SAVE YOU MONEY!
