Ainong the hundreds of special val

bargains that outclass others, both in
their desirability and the sweeping
character of the reduction.
Particularly is this trite of our open

whether they should be included in
the sale or not, but once decided upon
as belonging to the "odd ware" class,
their cost or value had no pait in de
ciding the price. 'Twas what would
sell them quickly they arc all the
