V AI I ARE M,G A G0LDEN OPPORTUNITY if you allow this Sale to pass without laying in a stock
I I II I of the goods We are selling at the lowest bargain prices in our selling history. The goods are
" U not made-for-sale-baits but of standard quality, and sold to make room for new articles. We
must iWe space. The Alameda has a stock of goods for us big enough to take every particle
of shelf-space at our command. .When we say "command" we mean every foot of space there is in the big
store. We want to place the stock early and save additional storage expense, and for that reason we are
almost giving the old stock away. This Sale has been phenomenal with us and we are going to do right
by our patrons. Beside selling our stock that has been in the store for the past three months we are
going to put some of the Alameda goods in with them, so you will have a chance at the absolute
ly new stock. We have the reputation of giving more real good stuff for a dollar than any
firm in the city. Kerr's Sales are known from one end of the Territory to the other.
To prove the genuineness of this sale we arc offering unbleached
table linen at THIRTY PER CENT. BELOW STANDARD PRICE. DOU
BLE DAMASKiNArKINS, ?2.25 a Dozen; never before sold for less than
Wc aie setting-.up a new style or footwear and to make the necessary
room wc must rid the shelves of those wc have on them. Genuine
SOROSIS going -for Twenty-Five Per Cent. Less Than You Ever Paid
Before. And the styles arc what av? being worn every day in New
York. This offer is bona fide it's your chince to be well-shod for lit
tle monev, or to have your children well-shod for school. In finish,
well, you know what our shoes arc. Exclusive dealers in shoes never
kept a larccr or better stock.
Here is something that we can offer with perfect confidence be
cause we, personally know its value. Silk Mulls are always fashionable
and the patterns never grow old. Wc have some of these- goods that
have been hidden on a shelf, got put out of the way by a careless clerk.
A year ago they readily brought SIXTY CENTS the yard. Wc offered
them two weeks ago at THIRTY-FIVE CENTS and thpy are to be had
today for THIRTY-FIVE CENTS! These goods arc as good today at that
price as they were a year ago for sixty cents a yard and just as stylish.
- " PI
When you have an offer of rmvlc-to-ordcr clothing for men at bar
gain prices you had better take the opDortunlty and buy. About Christinas-time
many men arc short on tro -sen and long on desire. You can
exchange these to advantage during this sale. We havo a new cutter, new
(roods and new styles. No one ever had a bitter fit than is to be had,
here during the next two weeks'. You can get the same goods, the same
cutter and the same ht after that time, but you will pay a shade higher
price for the, same lcsults. That is where1 the benefit of a sale shows
itself on a customer of ours.
