items in extremely large quantities.
Many of the items of school supplies are trifling taken separately,
yet there is no reason why you should not get most and best for
your money. Our large stock affords the widest possible choice
and there is some saving on almost everythingeither better
goods or smaller price. Tablets will afford a good illustration.

more sheets for the money than can be had elsewhere. Same
differences in almost every other item of school supplies. The
