EASTERN GIRLS GOING WEST
:\|;<-iits In New York 1 ai^u-hi!; Waitresses
lor Hi.. Puclllc Slope.
A number of agents in New York
are engaging giris to work as wait?
resses in California and in Denver and
other cities in the far West. It ap?
pears that Rastern girls are more pop?
ular than Western girls in restaurants
out there, and that the places that em?
ploy girls from New York, and other
Eastern cities are rushed with busi?
The employment of these girls began
last summer, when an agent hired fif?
ty young women to go from New York
to Denver. He succeeded In getting
them till employment within twenty
four hcaus. This induced him to try
other cities, and he found then; was
a demand for Eastern girls in the res?
taurants of Western cities. He re?
turned to New York, and now it is
said that an exodus of waitresses to the
West lias sot in. One New York res?
taurant keeper who employs women
"It seems odd that in California
they should want Eastern girls rather
than Western girls for waitresses; but
ail the same if the present exodus goes
on it will soon be hard to get a good
looking waitress to stay in New York.
A number of them have left two of our
establishments to take employment
in a hotel at Coronado Reach. San
Diego, Ca!., and to-day I learned that
four more had secured employment in
a hotel at Los Angeles. When one
goes others follow her example."

Not the eloquence of words, but of deeds Not the paying of a thing;, but the f*oing of it. Not
promises lightly made and easily broken, but a plain, honest, straightforward statement, of monej'
saving facts concerning a store full of bright, fresh spring merchandise that will make the Easter?
tide selling memorable. There's the eloquence of reliability and suitability in the different lines
offered. There's the eloquence of variety and, best of all, the eloquence of price. Thus we offici?
ally open the new season. Ready for you when you read this. If interested kindly read on.
One case, of 2,000 yards, 36 inch wide Percales. These are the regular 12 l-2c kind. We w? re
lucky in getting them at t he price we did. A manufacturer was closing out all of the product of
his mill for this season. There was one hundred cases to be divided among his customers. We
got one of them Had to take one whole case of 2,000 yards ; rather too much for us at one time,
but whon we could get 12 l-2c Percales to sell at 8c the quantity was not so large. All new styles,
medium weight, 30 inches wide, all colors, dark and light grounds, checks, stripes, figures and
plaids. Don't forget the price, 30 inch Percales, choice 8c a yard.
