THE NEW WASH GOODS
The first installment is now on our
counter not a bit too soonf judging from
the way they are selling. The assortment
is not at its best yet, but enough is here to
give an idea of the way the straws of fash
ion are being blown.
The good, old stand by dimities in
new patterns; the lawns; the ginghams in
ideal shirt waist patterns; the silk striped,
crinkled effects the cotton Foulards.
Stop a second at the Foulards. In
the sheen, the appearance, the patterns,
the colorings, the general- effect they are
scarcely distinguishable from their aristo
cratic sisters, the silk Foulards. But they
are cotton and priced as cotton. Wonder
ful, simply wonderful, are these mercerized
The bargain element is not lacking.
Twenty-five or more pieces of
lawn, light colors, small pat
terns, per yard 6c.
Gowns up to $2.25.
Corset Covers up to $1.75.
Drawers up to $1.50.
Petticoats up to $4.50.
Combination Chemise up to $3.50.
"Not how cheaply, but how good"
applies very truthfully to the under mus
lins we are now showing. The prices we
have quoted are the highest in each case,
to suggest if possible the finery of lace and
embroidery, of tucks and ruffles when made
up in underwear; in other words, to make
you curious. The prices run down to as lit
tle as good under garments can be sold for
The cheap sorts, cheap in price only, find
no place in this stock.
It's unusual to quote the highest
prices instead of the lowest. We wouldn't
do it were we not sure that expect as much
as you like, you'll not be disappointed
when you see the garments.
THE WALKING HATS
We made our initial announcement
concerning these last week. Since then
many more styles have been received, un
til now the assortment is quite representa
tive of all that is pretty and popular in
this style of headware. Fetching and
smart? So much so they quite defy de
scription. Prices start at $1.00 and then
1.50, 2.00, 2.50 and so on.
As we write this they are being unpacked and
marked. When you read this they will be on sale.
Can't say much about them- Hardly necessary. The
fact that they are here are new is enough.
Summer weights, low necks, sleeveless. Prema
ture? Not a bit of it. Two kinds just received: Silk
lustre, light blue, pink and laveudar, narrow white
stripes ; .'. 36c.
Pnre white, mercerized, silk draw string 50c.
