Right now It is anybody's guess. What has the future In store for us? What are the wild waves saying? Who will pay all the debts we are making? Who will be dictator Roosevelt or Lewis? Everybody has a guess. I guess I will keep my feet on the ground and not Indulge in any high flying this year. They talk one thing and mean something else. Factories are talking higher prices In one breath and the next moment offer you a big bargain at close out prices. If they are so sure of higher prices later why are they so anxious to unload now. When I was a boy I attended a guessing school, and I have been gueslng ever since. My guess right now Is to keep on selling goods at reduced prices. I am sure there will always be plenty merchandise to buy if I have the money to buy It. "Good standard shoes and clothes, the same goods for lots money" baa always been my motto and I believe It is -^ » right gpod principal to stick to. We are going to keep right on dishing out tni"fcaiS«lnii."~~'"""""**"""* Ladle*' white Slippers, worth Jl.OO go at 29c Children's black and brown oxfords up to big 2 at 49o Men's and boys' polo shirts, not many left at Z5c Men's and boys' caps We; 25c and 50c neckties at 19c Men's white buck Oxfords at $L*9; Boys' work shirts 25c Ladies' kid slippers, stylish and lots of wear at $LOO Men's and boys' rayon underwear 26c Anklets 5c and so on through the store.
