FOUR KOSSttf H COUNTY APVANCB> ALQOMA. IOWA ;(.' ,•{,' \nf> >',#;vlH' ,r.J , <• I' 1 ",, Y ' > i Looking tor a Swap I want to trade my home in Algona for a farm. I believe now is just the right time to invest in farm land. All these times go In cycles. From years of experience through good times and bad times I do believe that Iowa land will double Its present price In the next ten years. I also want to trade a bran new radio for a milk cow. 1 believe a pail of milk each day will do the family, especially the gran'chlldren, more gooll than sitting up until midnight listening to Amos and Andy. We also have a Victrola that I would .trade for a calf or a pig, a young Shetland pony, or even a water spaniel dog. Anything that Jim and Bob can play with. I have my trading clothes on and while the spasm lasts will trade anything. I can remember back home on the farm we boys would go down to the barn on a rainy day and make two or three dollars apiece trading jack knives. .When a fellow wants to swap it Is just like having the Itch, you can't sit still until you make a deal. But now the store is filling up with customers so I suppose I will have all the trading I can tend to for the rest of the afternoon. Old customers that have traded with me for years, and new ones that are look- Ing for bargains. They can always find them at Neville's. I have been dealing out bargains in this county for nearly forty years. Some of my friends say, "Why don't you retire?". Retire nothing! Why, I am just getting good. I am just beginning to know how to run a business, how to buy, what to buy, and where to buy. Through years of experience I am nicely lined up with the wholesale houses. With this buying power and money to buy with I feel I can be of more service than ever to this community. Why, if I should quit these other fellows would put their prices up even higher than they have them now. Just last week I closed a spot cash deal for 1200 pairs of men's shoes and oxfords. Are they bargains? I say they are, and you will say-so too. I will make $400.00 on this one deal, and the people that buy them will save $1,500.00. We are selling them from $1.00 to $1.50 a pair below the regular price. All we have to do is wrap them up. Anybody will buy a good standard pair of shoes at a reduced price. Men's oxfords at $2.50 to $2.9S. Men's work shoes from $1.50 to $2.98. Men's dress shoes, some of them $4.50 Munson shoes, all go at $2.98. Another big buy in ladies' full-fashioned silk hose. Every day you hear women say. why pay $1.50 for hose when you can get the same quality at Neville's for 75c. t- 200 dozen silk anklets, sizes 6 to 9%, to sell at 12 %c a pair. Boys' good white back denim overalls at 49c. Boys' whoopee pants with elastic waist band at 59c. Men's cotton flannel gloves at 5c a pair. Men's genuine horsehide gloves at 49c. Boy's underwear, shirts, or trunks at 25c. You will find a house full of bargains at Neville's Shoe Store ALUONA, IOWA BITUMINOU5 5 /YES, MIST' ANTH'CITE DE d/WWlAG?
