Co., of Des Moines. It Is a clean up of the factory and we own them at less than 50c on the dollar. Not a coat in the lot worth less than $10.00 and most of them are coats made to retail at $15.00 up to $18.00. We have divided them Into two lots, choice of lot one $4.98. Choice of lot 2, $6.98. Meltons, Kerseys, and Herringbones in dark and light shades, all sizes from 34 to 42. Selling your corn at 30c will give you 60c a bushel for what you invest in an overcoat. These overcoats are worth two to three times what I am asking for them. Everyone that sees them buys an overcoat. It Is an out and out bargain. While in Des Moines I also bought a truckload of leather jackets, sheep lined coats, blazers, sweaters, macklnaws, mittens, caps and other merchandise. They had to sell, they had to have money. So spot cash turned the trick. Think of men's and boys' horsehlde mittens at 29c a pair.. Men's Mackinaw blazers at $L75; men's corduroy pants at $L79; boys' heavy moleskin pants at 95c and so on. Every table loaded with goods that you need for winter and at half what you expected to pay for them. I am taking mighty good care of my customers this fall. Jimmie Neville THE SHOE MAN Algona, la.
