"Good Morning! Carpets?" Yes sir, indeed we have. Just step
this way. See those long lines of shelves, they are fairly loaded
with carpets of every grade, from Hemp and Rag to Ingrain and
Body Brussels. Just glance at those handsome patterns there are
carpets for the rich and carpets for the poor. Cast your eye over
these Gobelins, Victorias and Velvets aren't they beauties? What
richer goods would you want spread out on your floor than those
that lie before you? And yet many of them are comparatively low
in price. Here again feast your eyes on these varigated figures in
Ingrains. You can walk up and down the room and find .something
to suit the elaborate furnishings of a stately drawing room, library
or parlor, or you can match the more sober taste of a plain cozy
home. See that grand display of Room Rugs spread out on that
side. Note the many beautiful new figures and the exquisite shades
and colorings. These have never been shown before in such an ar
ray anywhere in this territory. Down there you see those beautiful
Straw Mattings in Chinese and Japanese. They are a feature in
themselves and are being marked down where you can get them
easily. Here at the end we are showing our Oilcloths and Lin
oleums, the latter eight and sixteen quarters wide. You can get
JUST WHAT YOU WANTsmmss
And we are certain wou will be satisfied. Size up that long row of
Hall and Stair Carpets of many makes and fashionable designs.
Those are what make a home presentable at first sight. 1 1 ere, there
and everywhere about you are Carpets and Rugs of all prices, from
the highest to the lowest. You must be going to carpet a parlor, bed
room, or make some change in your dining room floor this spring,
so keep us in mind and look at our line. In endless array we are
showing Cocoa Matting, French Wilton Rugs, La Paris Rugs, Fur
Rugs and Tapestry and Body Brussells. Remember our men are
experts at cutting and fitting, and our prices are the delight of the
This is one of our friendly talks. You will hear from us again.
