From ABC Blocks to a Jersey Cow

Whatever your holiday shopping list holds, you surely would find everything needed to make this a banner year at the Wade & Hitchcock store in Skidmore, Missouri.  From the Skidmore Standard (Skidmore, Missouri), December 22, 1899:

Christmas 1899.  We want to make this Christmas the banner year for holiday goods, and have bought our stock and propose to sell it at prices that will do it.  We call your attention to our large line of dolls that must be sold regardless of price.  Come in and see them.  Our new stock of books of all the latest authors are the best.  We have a nice line of celluloid goods such as toilet cases, handkerchief cases, collar and cuff boxes, photograph holders, and in fact everything for young and old in the Christmas line.  Come and select now as we are selling them every day.  We invite inspection of our stock from A B C blocks to a jersey cow.  Yours truly, Wade & Hitchcock, The Leaders.
