OUR unprecedented Reduction Sale still continues, and ia
now tho sensation of the day. The public have long since
learned that we never advertise fake closing out sales and fUm
flam cost sales.
When we advertised to the world that we were going to closb
out our entire stock of Shoes (exclusive of our Star line) at a tre
mendous sacrifice, and at prices regardless of former values, we
meant every word we paid, and our customers who have filled their
vanita here are walking advertisements for us, for they aie all
astounded at the magnificent values we arc giving.
Our stock was largo and ireeh and ?B still unbroken. There
are thousands of bargains here that will never ba duplicated oh
this market again. We must get rid of them, for we need the
room for our new STAR LINE 8HOE5, and at the prices we
have put on them, they will not be long in moving. Wise mer
chants, especially, are invited to replenish their stocks at prices
they can't get froru. any jobber.
