that the few strangers who spend
their holidays here, have neither the
means, or the spirit In them, to give
so liberally, neither should It be ex

is the gift for Christmas. There is something
personal about it that appeals to everyone.
It has charm and sentiment and will serve
as a reminder of the giver to be treasured
long after styles and fashions have changed.
There is always some one Jewelry store in a city this size that en
joys the advantage of being considered "the best place to go." This is
generally due to a long established reputation for sellini; high class goods,
and to the confidence of the public.
We believe most people in Honolulu if they had their choice would '
prefer to have their gifts come from "WICHMAN'S."
This year as in the past we have given careful attention to the
selection of our large stock of Christmas jewelry.
"We will be glad to have you come to us for suggestions: We know
we can please you.
