It is not too early to consider holi
day presents. Buying presents always
seems a problem, but it need not this
year. Our buyer has just returned
from the northern markets, and a more
select stock cannot be found anywhere.
Everything new in the Jewelry line as
well as the regular staples are here.
Our handsome Brooches and Waist
Pins of heavy 14k gold, beautifully en
amelled in delicate autumn leaf tints,
will please the most fastidious. Our
ladies here are enthusiastic over''-r
beauty. Gold Neck Beads are .::g
more popular every day, and ..e in
style, you should have a Gold Bead
Nechlace. WVe have them in several
sizes of beads, small, medium and
large, also in double strands. Prices in
iold filled $2.-5 to $.5.50; in solid gold,
%.00 to $20.00. Gold Bracelets are again
in vogue. The mast popular is the
Nethersole, a plain, substantial brace
et, in style similar to an overgrown
wedding ring. Some slip over the hand
mnd others have joints and clasps, so as
to open for putting on; made in this
way they fit more snugly around the
wrist. The Signet Bracelet, with place
for init ials or monogram, is also a pop
Llar style. Price in gold filled, $2.50 to
$5.00;: in solid gold, $5.00 to $20.00.
Wet haven't enough space to give a
leseription of each new article, but any
md everything pretty in Watches,
Brooches,~ Rings, Hait Pins, and all
<inds of jewelry, either gold or gold
illed, are to be found here. Prices
One of the latest and most beautiful
.vares is the K~elva. The Kelva Jewel
iase has a body of bisque, in soft, nieu-|
rat colors, and dain.,y flowers hand
mainted, mounted in gold bronze, in
ide lined with silk. Each piece is a~
>eauty in itself. A nicer Christmas
resent could not be found, and now,
