There really is no need for us to say a word about
our Millinery Department. Every lady who has been
in to examine our styles, whether she has bought or
not, has sent us from one to four customers. Not a
day passes but we hear, "Mrs. Soandso bought a hat
from you and I admired it so I had to come myself."
Our styles are the first, the leading. We do not
allow the grass to grow under our feet. Every day
there is something new. We are in the market
every week and pick up anything that's new. But
the secret of the whole business is the price not
style alone. If your friend has one of our hats ask
her what she paid for it. When she tells you you
will be amazed it's hardly creditable. To-morrow
and Tuesday we have a SPECIAL OPENING of
Millinery. We ask you to call and examine them
you will not be expected to buy. Come in and look
around. If you want to know the price look on the
ticket; it's marked there in plain figures. No one
pays more than you do; no one can buy it a cent less.
That's how you like to buy goods; is it not ? You
can't help being pleased, and it don't take much to
satisfy us. WE ONLY ASK YOUR PRESENCE.
Then go through the stock of Hats and Trimmings.
You have never seen such a variety under one roof

whero patriots fell arc marked by memorial
stones, becoming shrines for thoso who love lib

A Statue of Washington to bo Presented
A most worthy movement has recently been
set on foot to give expression to a Jwidespread'
feeling that it is about time for Americans to
begin to show somo reciprocation of tho kindly
feeling of tho French people toward this coun
try by making fitting return. Therefore an as
sociation has been organized, tho object of
which is to raise funds for a statue of Wash
ington for Franco, to bo given by the women of
America. Tho headquarters of tho association
are at Washington, and tho names of tho offi
cers are at once a guaranty for tho performance
of the trust and an evidence of the general de
sire for its accomplishment. It Is estimated
that about $25,000 will be sufficient
for tho work, and to raise that
amount tho association asks the coopera
tion of all who feel interested in tho object.
Mr. E. Francis Riggs, of Rlggs & Co., bankers,
Washington, will act as treasurer. Small dona
tions can bo sent to any of the ladies whoso
names are appended. Airs. Stephen J. Field is
president. Somo of the most distinguished la
dies of tho States havo consented to act as vice
presidents, Airs. L. P. Alorton heading the list,
