THAT THE CRITICAL dressers of this section regard our open
ings as style events of utmost importance, has been demon
strated time and again, but never so emphatically as yester
day. The throngs that attended yesterday were by far the
largest we have ever entertained and on all sides were heard
exclamations of admiration and gratifying praise ....
A HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT feature was the liberal purchasing of
new goods. Although there is usually very little business
transacted on Opening Days, the prices we placed on the new
styles proved so tempting that most of those who came only
to look remained to buy and bought liberally
IT IS THE BEST we have ever held this Fall Opening is. Com
plete, authoritative and comrehensive. Thousands upon thou
sands of dollars' worth of fresh, beautiful new fall merchan
dise is on display. Every dollar's worth carefully selected by
our own buyers, from the productions of the leading manu
facturers and importers in the tnde markets. The styles for
fall are strikingly attractive and we have been careful to
select only the latest, most correct and most practical modes.
IF YOU COULD NOT come yesterday, come and be our guest
to-day or to-morrow (exhibit ends Saturday night, you know)
you are sure to enjoy yourself immensely and will gain a
fund of style information that will prove very valuable indeed.
We again extend a very cordial invitation to you to attend.
