" One-Third Your Life Is Spent In Bed
so naturally it behooves us to give some attention to the fitting! of our bedroom. To awaken in a
cheery, cosy bedroom gives one a feelinp; of happiness and perfect content and helps to start the day
right, and it costs but little to accomplish this it is money well spent.
METAL BEDS ire in most demand these days, of which we arc showing a very comprehen
sive line in single, thrce-quavtcr and full sizes, from the plain light tube beds at$4.60 up to the mas
sive twe inch posters at $50, with or without brass trimmings, in scroll effects or those with per
fectly plain lines, devoid of all ornamentation, known 'as the chilless, while'Iyory and Vijiis Martin
and the popular finish, for those who would Jike a little more coloring, we' have the mahogany, pink,
green and combinations, r . r
Perhaps you arc tired of the metal beds. If so, we have a nice lino of BRASS BEDS, in straight
posts and bent pillar effects, in round or square tubing, in satin or bright finish, from $34 to $100,
Or jour fancy mayjran to WOOD BEDS say a genuine mahogany with its rich red grain,' in
Napoleon or 'Colonial designs, at$lQ to $00; or the plain styles, iu quartered aak and birdsfyc, at $27
Our showing of BUREAUS is unsurpassed. Such a variety of designs and different woods
and finishes is seldom shown in a community of this size.
The soft-toned birdseyc in natural finish is quite the vogue, and deservedly so. What could be
moro appropriate for the young lady's room or the guest chamber? Nothing cooler and cleaner look
, ing, and at prices to suit all $30. to $03.
Then there is the genuine mahogany, that for riohness of color and beauty of grain we must look
to when more elaborate furnishing is considered, In this we are showing "some beautiful' reproduc
tions of the earlier periods, from ?5, to $100,
In oak we have the laigsst showing, both plain and quartcnawed, in golden and fumed finish;
every conceivable design in plain or shaped fronts; and oval, square or shaped mirrors. Solid oak
dressers, $18 to $08; imitation golden oak as cheap as $12.75, flffjt JiJt t .'.! Ii '. rl
Maybe you lack cloict room. Then one of our chiffoniers will ba just the thing. All sizes
from 20 inches to 42 inches in width, with and without mirrors, in mahogany, birdseyc, quartered
oak, golden or fumed finish, plain and imitation oak, in golden finish, some to match the bureaus and
some odd. Prices front $0 to $75
To sum it all up, we art justly proud of our assortment of bedroom furniture and its reason
