MESQUITE, TEXAS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 27,1909 Vol.XXVlll No. 9 —4j£i THE BIG DRY GOODS SALE That we attended while in New York was a money saving proposition, both for our customers and ourselves, as we were side by side with the largest jobbers of the country, and where they job their goods to other merchants, we will sell ours to our customers at the same price that the merchant will have to pay. That means we will be able to sell you good less the middleman's profit. All goods are advancing daily and we were very fortunate to get our orders in before the advance. For instance we will give you an example that will show you that we always have our eyes open for your own good. Today the Manufacturers are selling 8 oz duck for 10c per yd. and we can give you the same thing all the fall at 9c per yard, as we were on the lookout, protecting your interest, and placed our order several months ago.

President Grover Cleveland once had an amusing experience with some swans, according to a writer In the American Magazine. He had been in the south, shooting, and brought home a number of wild swans, one of which he sent to each member of his cabi- net and to some other associates. "All the boys," said Mr. Cleveland, thanked me politely for having re- membered them, but none of them seemed to have much to say how they enjoyed the birds.
