Therefore the United States must take firmly in its own hands the control of the gold value of our dollar.

If this attitude exists at all, it is NOT the thought held by the majority of Ames merchants we are sure, and it is not in any sense our idea. Here at Tilden's we know the obligation rests squarely upon us. If our customers,can buy better elsewhere, they have a perfect right 4o do so. We have friends among the manufacturers, but in buying merchandise we insist on every dollar's worth of value in all cases- friends or? no. And that's the attitude we expect' our customer-friends to take toward us. • We're striving daily to make and keep friends for this store. We want you to like the store and the people who work here. But by all means, spend your money with us only when we serve you best. It's your money . * .we have no claim on it whatever. But before you buy, we will appreciate it if you will TEY AMES FIRST.
