A ship load of Agateware
would bo a big lot for ono
store even in tho United
States; it's a big lot for Hono
lulu and more than wo receiv
ed, but what wo did get on
two sailing vessels would as
tonish tho people if 1 hoy saw
all tho articles in ouo pile.
Our stock cf Agateware is
selected from "li3ts" not
"Seconds;" tho quality is tho
best that can bo made and wo
soil it at tho pieco you used to
pay for tho second quality.
This means a saving of 33
per cent, because tho life of a
first-class prico of Agateware
is a third longor than ono of
tho second class.
When buying for tho holi

pleasure in receiving a useful

Every housowife loves good
