New American Lady
LOOK at the New Gowns and the ladies
who wear them and you will find that
whenever she is particular about her corset
and buys an American Lady, her garments
have those fashionable straight lines, and
the correct hang of the late 1913 styles.
In order to meet every possible view of
economy for those who wish to try the Amer
ican Lady for the first and for any woman
who wears the American Lady regularly and
who cares to save; we offer for Monday and
Tuesday next the famous corsets, as follows i
$5.00 American Lady Corset 8J3-75
