son of Lenten ' penances has arrived,

visits on poor relations who reside In
the Buburbs?calls which have been
laying over heads like grim night?
mares?are conscientiously paid. And
then, too, the men must be looked out
for. Now there arc no receptions and
card parties for them to attend, the so
called meeker sex must see that they
are sufficiently amused to keep them
away from the pernlclousness of club
life, and their spiritual welfare must
bIbo be looked after and see that tiny
are properly carried'to church. And
while wo are making our Lenten sacri?
fices suppose we deny ourselves the
pleasure?the extreme, though wicked
pleasure?of gossiping ubout our neigh -

ladies in quite a successful manner,
jj?tose taking part being Miss Cornelia

The eager manner in which people are buying these
beautiful fabrics is quite remarkable. Experience has
taught them that the choicest patterns arc scarce later on,
when the temperature begins to suggest such light
weight materials. This, together with the great attrac?
tions of our comprehensive showing, is probably responsi?
ble for our lively business.
We strongly recommend this advance buying. Some of the prettiest p\t
leins that will be shown this season are already selling i>ut very last, and weeks
are required to duplicate. See our line ol Madras Cloths 12.'.-c, iCc and |9c;

Our Embroidery stock has never commanded more
attention than oaring the past month. Sterling values arc
the rule her : instead of the exception. Enthusiasts over
Embroidcries, from the stand point of beauty, can find
much of interest in our great shewing. From a more
utilitarian point of view, our stock is equally interesting.
