Heavy Failure Dry Goods

Heavy Failure Dry Goods
"Heavy failure. The entire stock of dry goods formerly owned by G. V. De Forrest, Cleveland, Ohio, and sold in bankruptcy, is now offered at the Brennan Store, 36 State St., at much below regular prices!"

For another example of the typeface used here for "Dry Goods" and "Brennan Store, 36 State St.," see the words "Oil Blacking" on Russian Army Harness Oil Blacking (below).
