This Is a natter which has prac

While the new system ot piecework
was the feature against which tSe

there were those whose incomo was re

Saturday night saw the end of our annual invoicing.
We made many discoveries. Some of them not pleasant.
The fast and furious selling of the past few monthsJgaveB
splendid chances for odd pieces, odd sizes and short ends
to get into out of the way places. We find dozens of odd
lots, hundreds of odd pieces, thousands of yards of good
remnants and short ends, and these must go this week,
hit or miss, any price takes 'em or leave them, your
neighbors will want them if you don't.
Cape and Jacket discoveries, one or two of a kind,
odds and ends of lines, splendid garments at Less Than

Lace Remnants 1,000 yards white and black, silk
and cotton laces, 2 to 5 yards length in each piece, worth
up to 25c a yard, choice while they last 19c apiece.
Extraordinary Silk Remnant discoveries, 1 to 12
yard lengths, 75c to $1.50 values for 4SC a yard.
Exceptional selling of Dress Goods. Now that the
