Goods that were bought at old prices should be sold at old prices. I have kept the faith with my customers and on account of early buying of large quantities of winter footwear and clothing, am still offering some wonderful bargains and saving my friends a lot of money. This can not go on much longer for prices are advancing rapidly. The stock is getting lower and some lines will have to be replaced. New buying will be a different story. After Dec. 1st, I have no promises to make as regards price. Now is your time and I am asking you to come and take advantage of the bargains I am handing out while I am able to supply your wants. It seems unfair for merchants to ask high prices until farmers get more for their produce. There are two sides to every question, your side and the other fellow's side. In selling goods I have always been able to see the other fellow's side as well as my own. The farmer is the under dog Just now and he is being ground between the millstones of taxation on one side and promises on the other. It Is a mighty poor time to ask him high prices for what his family needs. Jimmie Neville THE SHOE MAN .ALGONA, IOWA.
