An Inducement for Shoppers to Go Down-
Our readers will thank us for calling attention
to what is probably the moat important aggro
Cation of extraordinary values offered by any
dry-goods establishment in many a day. It
would naturally be supposed that this important

for shoppers usually abound, but the supposi

the downtown establishments. And in order to
demonstrate the difference between Harlem
bargains and those on Blxth avenue, or on
Fourteenth street. Btransky's will sell Elevated
railroad tickets at four cents, so that people will
beencouraeed to go downtown and compare
prices. This Is carrying tho war into Africa.

keeping linens, jerseys, hosiery, ribbons, din

mention of a few things adequately convey tho
right idea when there are so many?
We learn that the great tale at Btransky's be

completo the preparations. The L railroad
tickets will be put on sale, howeer, to-morrow,
so that people can go downtown and get posted
before Stransky's sale begins. .
