6 ' THE ARGUS, THt RSDAi, DKCKAriiJR 8, 18'JL'.
To the Ian of the House.
Why are the customers of a china store almost entirely ladies?
Why are we already setting away holiday presents for ladies who want to
be ready before the rush?
Because every lady who likes china, and such things as are found in a
china store, takes pleasure in making use of the many pretty and cheap
things we sell, for her Christmas selection. She'll make a dollar go twice as
far as our side of the house, and one of the ways she does it is by buying part
of her list of presents in the china store.
Now, if she likes china so much, why don't you take a leaf out of her
book, and make your present to her, Christmas, in that line?
You remember, don't you, how it was last Christmas? You were busy as
a nailer clear up to 6 o'clock Christmas eve, and then bought in a hurry some
thing you wern't more than half satisfied with, because you hadn't time to study -up
something she would like? Probably you'll do the same thing this year
too, but if you'll just take half an hour this week, and drop in here with a men
tal list of the ladies to whom you want to make holiday presents, you will find
it worth the while you have spent in reading this advertisement, both in time
