To Introduce the New Fall Goods
OCCURS TO-MORROW, SEPTEMBER 10th. Every department is now ready to
show advance styles and novelties for the Fall and Winter of 1900. We're very proud of
our selections, and we want you to come and see them. One hint we give: When you see any-
' thing you like particularly well, secure it before you leave the store. This is going to be the busiest sea
son Barr's has ever known. Prices rule lower now than they are likely to later in the season.
