There Is annually, about this time, an undue emphasis placed on price—as though the amount you paid for a certain article was all that mattered. For over half a century Chrlschllles & Herbst have stressed quality and held that It was better to pay a LITTLE more for something a GREAT DEAL better. Competitively our prices have always been lower than those of the large city stores, who sold goods of the same quality. . Do not be misled by the prlce-waravWhlch Bpme stores use as a "smoke screen" lor Inferior qdallty. Jhrlce may be "dear" when It Is cheapest—any price you pay for an Inferior article Is too much. Buy where quality Is stressed Instead of always "low prices." Our prices are always In competition with stores handling good merchandise—nerer higher. Protect your own Interests by spending your money where it will last the longest. Better pay a trifle more than buy twice as often.
