ELEVATED CASH RAILWAY.
Surprisingly quick 1Vorl:-3U Way Stu-
lions :i Cashiers All 1'ruv Ions
By actual count our cash
iers can make change, sixty
transactions in 5 minutes, on
the average of 12 per min
ute. Anything nearer per
fection than this has not yet
been attained in quickly
handling a large volume of
trade, and we consider them
the most expert handlers of
chance in this city.
Not satisfied with the Ele
vated Cash Railway, we con
ceived the idea of elevating
our bundle wrappers, and
were more than pleased at
the result, having estab
lished them in each depart
ment, and while the cashier
is making the change the
bundle is being wrapped,
and in a few seconds the
transaction is over.
No confusion, no noise, no
time lost, and the above fa
cilities coupled with others,
and expert sales people,
warrant us in saying that
wc can undoubtedly wait
upon a larger number of
customers in a given space
of time than any house in
Our establishment is ready
for business at 8 o'clock a.
m. and is kept open until 9
p. m. The light is the same
every minute of the time;
and before 10 o'clock in the
morning and after 5 o'clock
in the evening is the best
time to shop, or rather we
can then give you better at
tention. We shall always be under
obligations to the people
of Washington for the most
liberal patronage extended
us the past six years, and
shall endeavor to reciprocate
as far as lies in our power,
but we shall be under still
further obligations if they
will endeavor to do the
major part of their shop

This Is tho tlmo of year when lho
shopping fever, from which tho feminine
