A Great Handkerchief
This 41st Anniversary finds us better prepared with a
larger, a more complete line of handkerchiefs than in
October of any previous year.
The unsteady market on linen yarns and uncertain
labor conditions caused us to make large preparations
fully one year in advance. We
cannot begin to detail these beau
tiful creations, but will simply say
that for purety o linen, beauty of
design and unusual values, you'll
not match them elsewhere. To
make you notice the crowd at the
handkerchief counters we'll sell
every afternoon from 2 to 4 o'clock
pure linen hemstitched handker
chiefs at 3c each -3
