Advertisement reads, “Potatoes wanted! R. B. Foster’s. The Store for Bargains. The Home of Little Prices. Women’s and Misses’ Coats. In selecting our Winter wraps, we picked them from a collection that is always right. The ‘Palmer Garment’ is made in the approved styles and is also correct in material, fit and quality. All the words we could use would not give you as good an idea of these coats as you’d get by seeing them. We ask you to look at them. Quality of the highest and prices the lowest. Furs: We have a complete line of furs from $1.00 to $15.00. Dry goods: Our line of dress goods, waistings, flanneletts, outing flannels, underwear and blankets, etc., is complete and at very low prices. We also have new line of ladies’ petticoats in silks, heatherbloom and sateen, in exceptionally good values, being fuller and of better patterns than you usually see. See our line of men’s Duck Clothing before you buy, as we can save you money. We are headquarters for school shoes. Call and see us for anything in our line. Bring us your produce. Highest price paid. R. B. Foster, Skidmore, Missouri.”
