Special No. 2.
Suits is the talk this week.
Take the first big Suit Special
in the nick of time,when pat?
terns and sizes are yet in
proper shape. These very
suits sold For five, six and
some even seven dollars more
than is now charged for them,
but go they must, and the
first callers get the pick and
choice. Bear in mind that
some of these special Seven
Thirty-seven Suits actually
represent more intrinsic
worth in the material alone,
to say nothing about theii
being tailored in the Burk
Tailor Shops by the firm's
own first-class tailors, and
are guaranteed to be made
^p4TrfaT"betle"r manner than
any ready-to-wear Clothing
on the market for the Seven
Thirty-seven, and will lit
perfectly in every respect.
Seven Thirty-seven will ac?
tually do nearly double duty
in the purchasing power of
Men's Suits this week, and
the man that is seeking big
bargain value will surely
want to make an investiga?
tion of the character of the
material, specimens ol tail?
oring and shapeliness of
garments that are included
in this gigantic sale of Men's
Suits at Seven Thirty-seven.
The lots are numerous ?
patterns varied?all sizes in
total, but not all sizes of all
patterns. Every desirable
shape is represented, and the
substance of the matter sim?
ply boils itself down to the
fact that the best patterns go
first, and it's just a question
as to who'll get the first
whack, for as sure as you're
living these Seven Thirty
Seven specials are going to
move quickly, as such good
Suits, made up in such good
manner, embodying so much
genuine merit, worth, wear

named on such extraordi?
nary Overcoat property is a
rare bargain chance that
doesn't come every man's
way often. Don't lose sight
of the fact that there will be
no duplicates of these Over?
