Wanamgker August Sale
THE furnishing of your home is your own particular problem, and the one
thing that matters to you is to know just where you are surest of finding the
kind of furniture that will best serve and satisfy you at as low prices as qual
ity will permit.
' Now just as surely as that two and two make four, you are surest of finding
the furniture you want in the Sale that holds more furniture of the picked and
chosen kind than any other two or even three sales combined.
The Wanamaker Sale is pre-eminently the sale of varieties and quantities
that is a fact which cannot be gainsaid.
It is essentially the sale of sound values because the savings which it
affords are based on the sound foundation of quality in the goods.
It is pre-eminently the sale f oryou.
The stocks, comprised in it are typical of the best and most beautiful furniture made in America.
They are typical of all that is finest in the designs handed down by the greatest masters of cabinet work the world
has ever known.
Standard Furniture, Novel Furniture, Beautiful Furniture All
Apart from the wonderful showing of bedroom suits of fine standard types, such as Sheraton, Chippendale, Louis
XVI, Queen Anne, Adam and such, the stocks this year are remarkably rich in suits of novel and charming lines, many of
. them decorated with admirable taste, and cleverness. r K
The Fifth Floor exhibition of living-room, library, hall and drawing-room furniture is just as gracious and beautiful
today as on the day the Sale began, and that is saying much.
Copy of a Letter Doctor
Benjamin Franklin Wrote to
a Lady in Paris
"This is again Wednesday. I ree'd, my dear friend,
two letters from you and I am spending this evening
in writing to you.
"You love stories and you will excuse my telling
you one of myself.
"When I was a child at seven years old my friends,
on a holiday, filled my pockets with coppers.
"I went directly to a shop where they sold toys,
and being charmed with the sound of A WHISTLE that
I met by the way, in the hands of another boy, I volun
teered all my money for one. I then came home and
went whistling all over the house, much pleased with
my whistle, but disturbing all the family, who told me
I had given for it four times as much as it was worth.
"This impressed me so that it always continued in
my mind, so that whenever I was tempted to buy
anything I said to myself, 'Don't give too much for the
"As I grew up and observed the activities of men,
I met with many, very many, who gave too much for
"When I saw an ambitious man courting" favors
and doing things to gain them I said to myself,
" 'This man gives too much for his whistle.'
"In short, I conceived that great part of the
miseries of mankind were brought upon them by the
false estimates they had made of the value of things.
"Adieu, my dearest friend, and believe me ever
yours sincerely and
with unalterable affection
Did you ever see the newspapers so full of
schemes to sell and such urgent argument to
hurry up buyers? -
Isn't it worth while to stop and consider
that it is the man who owns something , who
wants to get rid of it and that you may "pay too
much for your whistle" if you don't look out?
