Always offers excellent opportunities for
Christmas purchases and all we have was
bought with this season in our minds. No
old goods of last year's styles, but good
fresh goods, the latest products of the art.
If you want something in this line which
we haven't in stock we can order it for you.
Besides this we can furnish the goods with
any engraving you may desire.
Is another line which furnishes a good
choice for presents. Princeton is a good
lodge town and we have made a specialty
of lodge emblems, charms, badges, etc.
We have a splendid assortment of rings,
pins, chains, pens, bracelets, etc.
The old joke about the woman and the last word applies
to us this week. We would like to continue to talk to
you about our CHRISTMAS GOODS, but unlike Joshua
of old we can't hold up the sun and the calendar says
Christmas will arrive before another issue of this paper.
This means that you have only a few days left in which
to make your purchases and it is for your interest to
buy earlybefore the rush of the last day. If we
haven't what you want in stock remember we have a
telephone and are willing to use ft for your accommoda
tion. There is no better place in town to secure suit
able gifts than at our store.

Has now begun in good earnest.
This store, we believe, has greatly simplified the vexatious problem of "what and where to buy."
Our two years' business activity and experience in catering to the wants of an intelligent and discrimi=
nating community has made this store an integral part and a factor in Princeton. Our store is indigenous
with Princeton's growth, and the phenomenal and continuous strides of the business, now by far the
largest of its kind in Princeton, is irrefutable evidence that our methods are right and acceptable. It is
not an ephemeral or mushroom growth it is based on incarnated, solid square, consistent business prin-
ciples which have won your confidence and respect, as well as that of all fair-minded competitors, and
which we intend to retain. We are pardonably proud of our achievements, and our largely augmented
holiday business this season is ample attestation that our efforts are not unappreciated.
AT CITY PRICES.
That there are only a few of our lines.-, We have something Jfe
suitable for presents for everyone, of evSry age, sex, color and $
temperament. We are particularly strong in things for the
little folks. Iron toys, juvenile books, games, dolls etc. You jS
can't go astray if you come to us for your Christmas presents, tf
We wish You A Merry Christmas.
Our first stock of Books went rapidly, so
rapidly in fact that we were obliged to buy
another lot. The new stock arrived yester=
day and is now ready for your inspection.
They will be sold while they last at city
department store prices.
A good perfume is an acceptable present for
either a lady or gentleman. It is a lasting
and pleasing reminder of your friendship
and esteem. But be sure it is of good qual
ity for nothing is so objectionable as an
inferior perfume. We guarantee our goods.
