KO88UTH COUNTY ADVANCE, ALQONA, IOWA tAOBTHMB* ^^y^C^\ {l \&> t Confidence ' r " Prosperity Id right around the corner, gddd Mlttes are coming; behind the clouds the suit IB still shining and all such talk does not seem to help the present situation. We are having a bad case of the seven- year itch, attd We Will have to do a lot of scratching before We are done with it. Good times and bad times come every so often. In my lifetime I "have been through several panics, and while Jt is hard medicine to take I believe we come out of it better, stronger men and Woman than we were before, 'It is such times that tell what metal there is in a man. The quitter is no good in times like these. Determination to pull through and devising ways and means to do it is what we need. r We need confidence in ourselves, confidence in our/neighbors, and in our government. . We are living in the best state in the Union and in the biggest and one of the best counties in Iowa. Depression or no depression I have confidence in the future and plenty confidence in the good people of Kossuth county. Physically', mentally, and financially we are better fixed today than any other people in the world. I am going right on buying shoes and clothing for these people; for I know they will need them, and at the new low prices they will be able to buy them. Merchandise is cheaper now than it has been for 20 years. Saturday we had one hundred cases of these new shoes unloaded at the front door of the yellow front shoe store. We are receiving big shipments in all lines. Just got in 25 dozen high-grade men'.s overalls, 95' dozen of the best work shirts that ever cafcie to town. Gave an order to a special representative of the mills for 1,000 dozen hose. I got jobbers prices on this buy. We will;have stockings from 5c a pair up to 69c, and oh what bargains. Maybe I am buying wild, but buy 'em and sell 'em is my motto. We are sure selling them so I am not going to lay down on the job as long as trade keeps increasing.
