With the nice spring wea
ther come the new spring
goods, pretty and more fa
shionable than ever.
We aim to keep the latest
and most fashionable things
in our stock, and everyone
will be able to find some
thing which will suit their in
dividual taste among our new
spring dress goods, ginghams,
embroideries, voiles, mar
quisettes and white goods.
Let us say just a word
about our ginghams: We
carry the Red Seal factory
shrunk ginghams. The busy
woman will find these of
great value, as it does away
with the process of shrinking
ginghams at home, and a
dress can be quickly made.
We are showing some very
dainty breakfast caps, which
are very much in vogue at
the present. Some are pret
tily made of shadow lace
over French imported silks,
with a satin ribbon rosette
others are plainer, made of
lace and fine cambric.
Every woman who buys a
Bon Ton or Royal Worcester
Corset does so with the mak
er's personal assurance that
she is buying for the price
asked all that is consistent
and possible as far as qual
ity, style, fit and workman
ship are concerned.
Every corset that leaves
the factory is an original
conception, designed -upon
correct lines and fashioned
from the best materials.
You will find a complete
range of styles and sizes in
our corset department. If
you are wearing a Bon Ton
or a Royal Worcester you
are wearing the best.
With our corsets we are
showing the De Bevoise
Brassiere (pronounced Debb
e-voice). This brassiere fits
the figure snugly above the
waist line, takes the place of
a corset cover and eliminates
all ridges. Every woman
will look better and feel
more comfortable if she
wears the De Bevoise. It is
made in a great variety of
styles, for all kinds of figures,
and for all occasions. Only
the very best materialsBa
