The New Racket Store.
Shoes, Clothing, Hats, Caps, Gents Furnishing Goods
Chinaware, Tinware and Notions, almost given away.
This is no fake traveling store, everything is new here. Come and see for yourself. It will surprise you when you will see good goods sold for a little of nothing. You can't get them elsewhere but except here in The Racket Store. You need not take my word for it but come and see and that will save you money in your pockets. Never before have you had a chance like this to get good goods for low prices. Remember THE RACKET when you are in need of anything. We kindly solicit your inspection of prices. Your treatment will be just the same whether you buy or not.
Don't fail to Come. Remember the Place.
