THH HUB is n studio of fashions?a place whej
women come to study the newest styles. This is a wj
man's store, with women back of the counter as well
before it; ami no man-managed store can guide its custo
mers so correctly on all points of style as can the HUB.
And ;it this time of year our showings assume special and
unusual interest because they give an accurate, authorita
tive forecast of what will he most correct and popular in
all sorts of women's wearables during the coming season.
We most cordially and heartily invite every woman who
may read those lines to come here and study the novelties
and new styles we are showing. This is sight-seeing time
at the HUB. We do not expect the active demand for
Pall goods to set in for two or three week 5 yet ; bnt we do
expect and desire that women should come and look at the
new things to their hearts' content. The fact that they
are not ready to purchase does not make n mile of differ
ence, and there is very, very much here that we know you
will lake pleasure in looking over, Won't you conic?
