EXPLANATION. We would like to explain why we have not left the city as we expected to do some weeks ago. The reason is simply this : The parties to whom we thought to close out our stock could not quite see their way clear to purchase it, and at that time we ran across a large establishment that was willing to let us have all the goods we wanted, and henee for the present we will continue to do business at the old stand, but we will not do business in the old way of Big ProfitS and Small Sales, but in the new way ADOPTED BY OURselves as follows : Small Proftts and Big Sales. This means sell ten pairs of shoes instead of one pair, even if we do not make any more than we would on one pair in the old way. We cannot teil how long we will have this opportunity to do our friends good and help ourselves turn our original stock into money, and therefore we advise all who are going to need any Footwear in the near future to take advantage of this Extra= ordinary Chance.
