UALITY was the first thing we thought of when we began plan
ning this May Sale away back in January. First, the quality of
the "bodv" of the garment the foundation- It is no use wasting
good labor or good trimmings on muslins that you could take in your
hands and rub the starch out of, or on cambrics and nainsooks sleazy
enough to make good salt bags. Not a poor or yellow material has been
admitted. Even our own people, when they unpacked the great cases
last week were struck by the snowy fineness of the garments and they
are sharp critics.
On the very lowest priced garments of all in the sale
we have used hemstitched tucks and ruffles for ornament,
perhaps a little simple embroidery or lace the best that
the price admits of. We believe that is for your interest.
We prefer to put the value into the material, so quan
tities of cheap, flimsy trimmings are tabooed. Defect
ive buttons, raw seams, poor finish generally, are equal
ly out of the question. You will find everything with
pearl buttons and lelled seams
Cottons are going up began to go up last Feburary,
and in all probability will remain up throughout the
Summer. We began placing orders before the January
sale was over and manufacturers who took our orders
before the rise are now stamping "Not duplicatable at
this price" on their bills for white sale garments.
Selling starts tomorrow ajid continues through week.
