Women are all connoisseurs when it comes to Hats. If there is
one tiling in the world that the gentle sex enjoy in common, it's
a desire for Hat beauty.
Tomorrow we demonstrate how thoroughly we are prepared
to satisfy every desire for becoming Millinery. We have been
planning for months that we might meet this occasion witli un
precedented assemblages. A month ago we reached our goal-and
we have been adding to and improving our stocks ever since.
Women are discriminating in their Millinery every woman
has a preference. Our gatherings are wide and varied enough to
meet the whim of the most particular buyer.
Large size Hats were widely talked of as the favorite for the
Fall of 1907 but common sense prevailed over faddishness, and
the small and medium shapes are as warmly approved of by
Fashion authorities as the large sized.
We will not tell you any more about our lists we will simply
say the display is magnificent, and deserving of your viewing.
