Paris-made Voile Robes
Embroidered in the New Bulgarian Colors
To-Morrow at $4.95
The first thought of nine out of ten women who look at this
illustration will probably be that only the upper part of this robe
is all that could possibly be expected for this little price.
There is difficulty in adequately word-picturing the exquisite
beauty and completeness of these imported robes.
The striking BJf srisn colon in rich greens, blues and reds remliined
embroidered on fine French voile, tome on white, other; on Paris
ecru, eipreaeing the Issl word in authoritative styVs. Our
Paris house was fortunate in securint just 300 el them.
To again demonstrate that the Simpson Crawford Company
Robe Section is always foremost in offering the greatest values
in the modes of the moment, we will offer these regulur $10.00
robes tomorrow at $.9o.
The proportions of the patterns ure ample to fit any figure
and they arc easily put together by the home dressmaker, in
model as pictured, or in uny of the fashionable draped effects.

The Charm of Simpson Crawford Spring Millinery
In the ability to grasp the style trend and
reflect it in every model produced lies the
wonderful success of Simpsou Crawford mil
linery. In the spring showing the evidence
of this ability is more marked if that be
possible than in any preceding season.
We are showing many styles in Ostrich
Feather Trimmed llats, embodying the smart
est ideas of spring, at prices fully fifty per
cent, lower than those of so-culled "exclusive
Ostrich Trimmed Hats at 912.50 and 15.00
every one B model of rare distinctiveness.
In the adjoining show room will be found
the trimmed tailor suit hats that have been
attracting so much pleased comment since
their appearance a few days gO in Hemps,
Miluns, Satins and Hemp combined, trimmed
with French Fancies, Ribbons, etc., at the re
markably low prices of $5.98. S7.50. 8.95.
