INENS We didn't realize how
many linens we bought for the
spring business until they began to ar
rive about a week ago, since which time it's
been dray load alter dray load until we are ab
solutely swamped. .
We've been cutting prices like "sixty" to un
load the linens which were bought for our
Christmas trade but never showed up until
Christmas was past, and here now comes all of
our goods bought for spring, piling right in on
us without warning. It's up to us to sell a lot of
these better bought goods.for last July and August
when these linens purchases were made, linens
were much lower than they are today. These

pieces, scarfs doilies and all fancy linens, they
are attracting lots of buyers with these 20 and

THE snowy piles of Muslin Under
wear are tossed hither and thither by throngs of cus
tomers. The sheer fabrics, the dainty laces and
embroideries, the tucks and hemstitching and the
great variety are subjects of much favorable comment,
while many are the expressions of delight at the low prices.
For a third of a century McCabe's have steadily ad
vanced the standard and increased the popularity of these
sales of muslin underwear.
It is the unanimous verdict that all previous efforts
are outclassed by the sale now in progress. Just note the
great variety of Night Gowns from 50c to $1.00 and from
$1.25 to $2.00. The Petticoats from 75c to $2.25. The
Drawers from 25c to $1.00, and the Corset Covers from
25c to $1.25.
