The Soundest CARPET ECONOMIES That
New York Housekeepers Ever Secured ,
Are In This Historic DOBSON Sale
The eager and enthusiastic housekeepers of New York and vicinage have surged through the Gimbel Carpet and Rug sections during
the past two days, like a vast human tidal wave.
If there is ONE thing about the housefurnishings that needs to be of thoroughly dependable quality, it is the floor-covering. If it is
RIGHT, the housekeeper has the delightful feeling of gratification and security for long years of service. But if it should be wrong, there
is nothing but uneasiness and regret in her mind, continuously.
JOHN & JAMES DOBSON never made a yard of questionable carpet, in all the half-century and more of their history. And, being
CARPET MAKERS, they could never be deceived in the quality of any carpets they bought from other makers, to increase the variety
in their retail store.
It is the QUALITY SECURITY that has brought careful hoasekeepers to GIMBELS, by the thousands, this week, even more than
the startling concessions in prices. And such QUALITY-EXCELLENCE, combined with such DECISIVE ECONOMY, has brought
such selling as New York has never seen before. '
But, remember that we secured A HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS' WORTH of these solendid
DOBSON CARPETS and RUGS, and there are still great stocks to select from IF YOU COME PROMPTLY NOW.
Those who miss this greatest opportunity of a decade, will need to pay much more, when they buy, for Carpets and Rugs of vastly
inferior quality. Here are a few oi the items:
In this lot will be found many of the Bigelow makes, Schofield, Mason,
Wilton Brussels Carpet Co., etc.
Body Brussels Rugs, 9x12 ft., for bedrooms or any room in the house
127.50 to $30 for $22.60.

Of the Separate Skirt !
Is the Separate Skirt to be in vogue this season? Of course it
is, and its popularity is not just a whim of Fashion, but a practical
mode, because the toj)coat is so much in evidence. With full
length coats, women have been known to wear just any old kind
of skirt, but not so this season, when coats are three-quarters
length and one's skirt is very noticeable. Then, too, there are
many times when it would be ridiculous to wear one's suit skirt
about the house.
