The supreme court made the writ return

Store and see the thousands
of article'-, suitable for Christ
mas presents you'll have little
trouble in deciding just what
you want to give. Also we
would have you know just what
we are doing here in the price
The outlay of seasonable
things presented to you at dif
ferent parts of the Store is
greater than ever in our history,
so if you have needs (and most
of us have) you'll find now is
the most opportune time to
supply them. The prices and
the goods arc the magnets
that draw. This isn't proved
simply by our saying so. The
great crowds at all parts of the
Store are the witnesses.
Delay in buying your Christ
mas presents may cause you
to rush in and purchase hastily.
Then you are liable to be dis
satisfied after you have the
things home. To avoid dis
content buy early, when you
can make your selections leis
