Ready-to-Wear Apparel, and Furnishings for Men, Women and Children to be sold for less than manufacturer's cost. The final dash of our stock taking sale.
It is imperative that we oust this mountain of merchandise which we are overburdened owing to backward season and disastrous weather conditions, which call for our uncompromising sacrifice of profits on Satur
day, Feb. 4, at 8 a. m. We will begin a strenuous campaign of bargains which will startle the entire state. This involves our entire stock. Facts and figures will tell the story rather than words. Prices have
been shattered. Great chunks have been cut off the cost of the manufacturers. The buying public are value seekers in every sense of the word. Realize the condition of affairs that now exist here. Then
act quickly. Profit disappears and cost is lost sight of entirely. A powerful persistent purpose urges us to make this sacrifice . Consequently there is only one remedy, that is. to cut and slash. This is not a sale
to build up profits, but to build up a royal corps of friends. We have paved the way. For this we are constantly working with this end in view and to make this the ideal store for men, women and children. The
magnitude, power and money saving influence we pass along to you during this sale will more than strengthen tenfold the prestige and reputation of this stores as bargain givers. . READ REALIZE AND PROFIT.

THE GRAIN MARKET.
Liverpool. Feb. 3. Wheat opened
steady: weaker American cables yes
Urday offset here ly lighter Argentine
t-hipments than expected and an im
proved demand for spot. World's Wn-
week, and reports from Russia are to
the ejfect that the very cold weather
there with heavy ice is delaying ship
ments. Argentine holders have ad
vanced their price in view of this fact
and a generally steady undertone pre
vails. There was some little disposi
tion shown to realize in May owing to
rci'der weather in the United Kln-
dem and generally favorable European
crop advices. At mid-day the market
was steady and unchanged from yes
terday. Corn, quirt; pressure developed in
the American grade. The milder
weather here will reduce consumption
