our goods you want and need at good, sharp reductions from the prices
they have been selling for?and these prices, we need hardly add, were
just as low as could be found anywhere in this section, for equally at
tractive goods and garments. IVlost stores hold their reduction sales at
the end of the season: we prefer to hold ours now, when you can get
.months of service out of whatever you buy. The sale will last all
through December; and the woman who doesn't take advantage of it is
missing the bargain treat of the year. We can only take space to print
a few of the sale prices here; but evert these few will suffice to indicate
the extent of the sale's savings.
