WE ANNOUNCE THE THOROUGH COMPLETION " '
OF OUR PREPARATIONS IN OUR SEVENTY-ODD
DEPARTMENTS FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON.
The enormous variety of the items displayed upon the several floors , select
ed with especial reference to the wants and requirements of -buyers of gifts makes
this the recognized
Everywhere appropriate gift hints greet you, and every-department contributes in some
way to the general holiday aspect of the store. Increased space has been given the departments
containing the many dainty and beautiful articles so much used for gifts, while our great stocks
of personal wear and household use from which selections are often so wisely made were
never in better condition.
AND WITH ALL OUR NOTABLE PREPARATIONS IN
MERCHANDISE, WE HAVE OVERLOOKED NOTHING
IN COMFORT, CONVENIENCE AND SERVICE.
Our facilities for the saving of time in shopping are greater than ever before thus enab
ling buyers to select with more ease and accomplish more in a given time than in most estab
lishments. The store will be open until 6 p. m. daily exc. the three last evenings of the Christ
mas Shopping Days (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) when we will remain open until 9 p. m.
AND SO WE ASK YOU TO SHOP EARLY NOW
AND IN THE DAVS EARLIER HOURS
The wisdom of shopping early is given further significance by the fact that
much of the distinctly gift merchandise comes from countries too far distant
to permit of duplication and in these lines exclusiveness is very evident.
