men's and boys' shoes with the clothing stock, and not having sufficient room for all. we are sell
ing out our entire stock of ladies' and miss?s'shoes less rhe following reductions: Some at one
. fourth off, some at one-third off, some at one-half off, and some at less than one-half off.
It's a pity to sacrifice our fine stock of Ladies' Shoes, particularly when this has been one of
our most successful departments, but being unable to seenre more store room it's the only re
. course. With the big reductions they are moving fast. It's a chance in a life time. Don't miss it.
