These semi*annual sales of ours (January and July) offer unheard of values in our regular
lines of Clothing. Newness is the life of the Clothing business, and we never allow Clothes
to tarry heie beyond the period of goodness. Not even in these Bales, that clean up the stock
for the year, is there any Clothing that has reached the state of undesirability. They are swept away in the height of
their excellence. Running water is always fresh ; likewise the moving stock. That is why that Clothes bought here are
at all times and seasons reliable, reasonable and trustworthy.

LIGHTEST MINERAL WATER,
And retains its gases longer than other Water on the market.
THIS IS CLAIMING
A GREAT DEAL,
But you can make the test yourself by taking a bottle of
WHITE STONE CARBONATED WATER and opening it,
and at the same time opening a bottle of any other, and you
will he surprised bow much longer WHITE STONE LITHIA
WATER will retain its gasses than the other. Another test
you can make of the softness of this water, that it does not have
the sharp, burning sensation on the tongue or stomach when
drinking it that most carbonated waters have. If you will give
it a trial you will have none other.
The WHITE STONE LITHIA ALE will retain some of
its gasses after remaining open 48 hours, while most Ginger
Ale on the market will not retain theirs 48 seconds.
All we ask of yon is to make a test of onr Water and Ale,
and we know you will be convinced of their superiority.
