Standard Goods There is an old Indian proverb which says, "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me." There is no short cuts to holding a volume of trade. It takes standard goods at low prices to keep people coming to a certain store. In advancing or declining markets Neville's Store has always stuck to standard nmkes of shoes. This summer the markets have been on a Ipwerlng basis, and we are selling shoes very, very cheap. But no matter how cheap we sell a pair of shoes or sllppt-rs they have to be of standard uniform quality. A merchant can fool the people once, but in doing so he is only fooling himself for he can not get repeat business unless the goods are. satisfactory. Just now we are selling boy's and girls' oxfords and slippers in sizes up to No. 2 at 98c. These are ' a close-out from the Teco Co. and are slippers that were priced to sell up to $2.00 a pair. I bought nearly 1,000 pairs at a close-out price, and am giving my customers the benefit of a good buy. They are good shoes and will be satisfactory even if you only pay 98c a pair. We just got in 440 pairs of men's overall pants. They are worth $1.50 in a regular way. I got them as a close-out and will let my friends have them, at 85c a pair. They are standard make, from the Janesville Clothing Co. Children's play suits, good ones, at 39c. Bathing suits, part wool, at 49c. 100 dozen ladies' regular 50c dress hose, to sell for 25c. Lots of bargains all through June. We have a store plum full of good standard goods at reduced prices. Jimmie Neville THE SHOE MAN ALGOJTA, IOWA WHY SEND TOUR ORDERS FOR printing out of town?
