A, J. Birtch has ordered me to close out their entire high-class stock of Women's
and Children's Wear regardless to cost and profit, and you can bet on it
that I will stop at nothing, and dispose of this high grade stock in double
quick time.   I have marked the merchandise at unbelievable figures at
Clear to the naked wall and emtpy counters���everything goes. Every dollar's
worth of ihis superb, peerless, high grade stock on the altar of sacrifice���a clean sweep
demanded by Hi rich Bnd guaranteed by H. T. Lacelle, thc world's greatest price cutter,
hut only afier the store consented to a veritable holacaust of prices and profits.. The
die is cast���the whole stock is doomed to go at a mere portion of its value. Cold type
never before told such a story of ruinous sacrifice. ?pare nothing is the battlecry ef
the commercial massacre. People, I tell you, you've never faced such a saving chance
before, and the prices will prove it true.
It's the end of the A. J. Birtch Store, the final wind-up of its   mercantile   career.
Only a few short weeks before their lease expires and then good-bye to this store forever.   Time is short and only the most terrific selling and drastic price cutting can
accomplish our object.   I have gone through the entire stock like a   cyclone   through
a Kansas cornfield, ripping and slashing and shredding prices to the merest nothings���
annihaliting profits and casting cost andlosses to the very winds. Read every word,
scan every line, the bargains best tell their own great story of what a merciless and
determined sacrifice this is.
