windows in Ue resr of the first, shielded
at night by steel rolling shutters.
and a nicely lighted second floor.
Mr. McCabe is rushing his interior
alterations in a manner that bears testi
mony to his pjblic spirit and business
pride. The most attractive of these is
tbe Krand stairway of beautifully carved
birch with oak steps, so designed as to
aSord three landings provided with seats
from which "he entire store may be
viewed. This staircase is in itself a
wonderful piece of artistic workmanship.
Then, too, with new counters, new shelv
ing, all of modern design, toilet and
waiting rooms and otbor conveniences,
Mr. McCabe will have a store which there
should be no hesitancy in stating is not

presents its equal.
Not satisfied with the space at li s dis
