CITRUS AVENUE The stand we have occupied for twelve year.;. S *^ * •x<~x~XKK"X'<^x~:"X~x«x«X"X' 9 8 8 Everyone Knows that little fairy story about the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Do yon chase rainbows, always looking for better and cheaper goods somewhere else? Try buying here and you will find you need not look for the end of the rainbow. If you stick a little closer to your own stores they will grow and oUiers will come. They will make a little money and make the town grow and look more prosperous. Every man has a right to spend his money where he pleases, but exercising his right might not always be good judgment. Jay Gould threw away untold millions because in his arrogance he declined to listen to "Westinghouse with his air brake. Sometimes a country merchant knows a thing or two. I suppose occasionally they are cranks, like myself, but this world is made to move by men who are cranks, and by the way, do you know men make towns? No town is so favored by climate or location that it will make itself. We merchants help a little. We pay obout $4,000 per year taxes, part of which goes to support our schools and without which they could not be maintained at their present standard unless your own taxes were largely increased. We occupy business property, largely increasing the value of all property adjacent thereto, and adding to the attractiveness of our town, as a place of residence. We do not seek any charity or complimentary business. We cannot exist upon the sale of thread and patterns nor by matching an occasional price of goods. These are matters for your consideration. The Golden Rule is a fine rule. By spreading ill of your merchants, recommending your neighbors to go to Los Angeles and Pomona you are injuring yourself more than us. Many merchants are seeking locations. 'When they think our stores are inadequate, our prices too high, and our service insufficient, they will enter into competition with us atid they are welcome. • Special Sale The val- Thursday Three days only, ladies wash and khaki skirts, ues are unusual and we suggest an early choice, the entire lot goes to our Imperial store. Ladies 1 Panama Hats City stores ask $5.00 to $10.00. We will furnish our customers these hats at $4.50. When we put a pair of j S 8 jj j i i i "MEN! "EASE" SHOES i mi your feet and say we hope you will like them and that you will conic again, we are just as sure of you doing both as we are of the sun rising in the east tomorrow morning. We never saw it fail. You know yourself arid the people of this town well enough to know that there isn't a man among yon who would buy a second pair of MEXZ "EASE" if the first pair didn't give satisfaction. Why is it that we can name dozens of men right in this town who would be insulted if we showed them any other than a MEXZ "EASE?" Why is it that there are others who wouldn't wear any other shoe but a MEXZ "EASE" if we paid them to do it ". Why don't these dozens of steady MEXZ "EASE" customers of ours buy one of the many imitations that are offered as "just as good?" We know two or three who were taken in by those "just as good" claims about six months ago but they will ail tell you today that they are wearing MEXZ "EASE." Black or Tan.
