Depression in business this fall is nil in the merchant's head for as a matter of fact business is good and people are spending as much money if not more than they did last fall. These sales that are being run is a state of mind and the bargains (hat people are getting is all in their heads. No merchant is hiring a flork of clerks and selling you seasonable goods at wholesale prices in November or even Dccein- bcr. You will find there is a, darky in the wood pile. I have watched these sales every fall and this is about the way things run: Regular Price Men's dress shoes and oxfords _^, 5.00 Ladies' pumps, straps and ties , 4.50 Men's 4-buckle all rubber overshoes 3.00 Men's master overcoats, very dressy 18.00 Men's Suits "Hirsheys" __', 28.50 Men's leather coats, first quality 11.00 Mori's fleece lined union suits' 1.00 Engineers' and firemen's sox , .20 Scarfs, large rayon squares , 1.00 Men's neckties, a beautiful variety .50 .Ladies twelve strand silk hose 1.00 Men's fancy dress hose .25 Children's school stockings ,__, .25' Men's work shoes,'all leather | 2.75 Men's retan work shoes , 2.25 Men's standard dress shoes __ , 3.75 Ladies comfort slippers , 2.50 Men's boots, retail , 5.50 Sale Price 4.85 3.95 2.57 14.75 24.50 9.50 .89 .13 .75 .39 .79 .19 .19 2.45 1.79 3.29 2.35 4.75 Neville's Price 3.98 2.98 2.25 11.50 19.95 8.00 .75 .12 .49 .25 .50 .121/0 .15 2.39 1.50 2.98 1.95 ' 4.50 And so all through the store yon will find Neville's.'priced lower than sales prices. Somebody has to pay the extra expense. ; 'ipic merchants can' not afford to loose it-and it sure costs run. a-sale.' Sales are all righ't in Jannary or July when a fellow can afford to clean up certain lines at co^t jor even at a loss but when run for a profit in the busy season they become a jblcc. I have run lots of sales for myself and for others and.find' by experience that selling good honest standard goods at a small profit the year round is the only sure way to build up a big volume of business. People will buy where they get good holiest goods at low prices every day in the year. '. JIMMIE NEVILLE The Shoe Man •.* ^ were present.
