Prices That will Result in the
Most Rapid Disposal.
It is almost needless for us to enlarge on the merits
of this superb stock. "Bennett" was well known for
the high class character of the merchandise carried.
Nothing could find a place until it had passed Mr. Ben
nett's exacting standard.
It is therefore a most unusual offering and at the
prices we have marked it means bargains par excellence.
The stock invoices about $15,000.00 and consists of
Handsome furs of all kinds including fur coats for men and
women, fur gloves for drivinq and auto, fur caps and collars for men
There are gloves of all kinds, auto, driving, etc.. including gloves of
the famous Fownes make, also lined gloves and mittens.
The Tiennett Furs
Were the backbone of his business.
Mr. Bennett was a manufacturer, and frj
the bulk of his furs are of his own careful C
expert make. ( ,
