Grace Combined With
The L. R. Corset
"I want a corset, please."
"What style, Madame?" . M
"Why a oh, I don't know. Just a corset which costs $5 or $10.
Expensively dressed, the speaker might have been but well gowned, never !
Why? Let her own remarks tell the story she wanted "just a corset." So
many women now a days think that the mere fact of wearing a corset is suf-
ficient to produce a good figure. It is far more Ulteiy y sooa nBurc.
The woman who knows and she knows be
mse she CARES enough to find out, is fitted to
ach pair of corsets, and the young girl who wants
to preserve her youthful lines is careful to do
THE L. R. CORSET, which we are proud to
claim as American made, is designed to suit all
needs and sold exclusively by the John Wana
maker Store. Each individual corset is carefully
inspected before it leaves the factory for it must
stand the test of flexibility which means grace i

The Beauty of These
Summer Frocks for Girls & YoungWomen
Lies in Their Simplicity
A young girl likes simple
things, because she knows
Intuitively that they are
most becomingtoher. Not
every manufacturer makes
these girlish dresses, how
ever ; so, seeking an ideal,
we went to two young wo
men, who, every year, go
abroad for new and youth
ful ideas. From them we
bought these cool little
dresses of lawn and dimity,
simply trimmed, but every
touch an effective one !
Could anything be more
becoming than the dresa of
black and white dimity
with frill collar and a dash
I of cherry or velvet at the
throat and cuff, $7.50.
From careful makers, too.
eome our Junior dresses, made just right for girls of the difficult
years, 13, 15 and 17 years. One model is ot lavenaer Datisie

A little girl's dress of flowered Uwn, with yoke of plain lawn
and touch of scalloped white organdie, is only one of our dozens
of dainty dresses. $3.
To briefly sum up, all dresses for all occasions and all ages of
young girls, all of the fascinating simplicity which is not as sim
ple as it looks. Prices ranging from $1.35 to $23.50.
The graduation exhibition will continue today and tomorrow.
Real little girls, all in white, will wear these pretty frocks.

Its a Pretty Good Compliment
to a Hat Store When Hat
Manufacturers Come Here to
Buy Their Own Hats
A leading manufacturer of straw hats came here the
other day to get a hat blocked to the Wanamaker oval.
He wanted the best there was because he waa
going to wear it himself.
This is the only store where tell the straw hats are
i blocked to the new oval that makes them fit the head.
The only Store where you get the Lincoln-Bennett
hats from London.

Good Things Come in Pairs in
the Boys' Suit Section Tomorrow
Size assortments in some of our finer groups of boys' suits
are beginning to break.
"Let them go now," say we, "when half the boys are
teasing for a new suit for the holiday."
Here they go:
12 boys' suits that were $20; 22 suits that were
$18; 15 suits that were $16.50.
All at $15 tomorrow, sizes 10 to 18, most of them
larger than 12.
29 boys' suits that were $15.00; 15 suits that
All at $12 tomorrow, sizes 10 to 18, but more
large than small sizes.
The above are fine all-wool worsted suits,double-breasted
and Norfolk style, mostly in shades of brown and gray.
For fhe long-trousers boy A special purchase of 50
alpaca lined student suits of blue serge and fancy cheviots such
as usually go into $12 suits to sell at $9.50. For boys of 15,
16 and 17, not quite ready to put on the really mannish styles.
Main floor, New Building.
That Carries a Lighter Price Burden than Usual
Certain steamer trunks at $6.75, $8 and up to $9.50.
Certain dress trunks at $7.50, $8 and up to $10.
All under-priced, and particularly the larger sizes, because
we bought them for less than standard prices for trunks of such
standard grade. Should these not quite meet your ideas, more
than three hundred kinds of other excellent trunks arc here, in
cluding the "Vuitton" from France, the trunk de luxe.
Basement, New Building.
Sturdy Leather Suit Cases at $5 and $5.50
lessen the holiday expenses two or three dollars more than they
would ordinarily. A maker who sells us large orders came to the
front with this contrihution for the benefit of those who intend
to take advantage of the first of the summer holidays.
24 and 26 inch sizes each encircled by two stout leather
straps and equipped with strong brass lock and catches. Cases
for bathing suits, 85c and $1.25.
Light-weight matting suit cases, $1.75. Finer ones of cane,
up to $15. Main floor, New Building.
SATURDAY last, much against our will, wc were obliged to
disappoint at least a thousand good friends who came expecting to
get one or more of the
Charming AHSilk Foulard
Frocks at $5.75
A late shipment swelled the quantity to twelve hundred, although we an
nounced but nine hundred, and thought this quantity would be ample for a day's
supply. But when Saturday morning arrived, it seemed as though every other
woman in town had put "Wanamaker's for a silk dress" on her shopping list.
Several hundred women were here before the Store opened. By ten o'clock
half the dresses had been carried away. By eleven o'clock it became necessary to
take the small remainders from the Main aisle and the Second floor and concentrate
all in the Basement Store. And by 2 o'clock or before, less than half-a-dozen dresses
in odd sizes were all that remained.
For Tomorrow, We Have Secured
1,800 Similar Dresses
To Sell at the Same Price, $5.75
If anything, these dresses are a trifle more desirable than the others. For the
information of those who missed last week's announcement, we will repeat that
these are distinctively cic and summery frocks of all-silk foulard, in a variety of
models, patterns and colorings. They were made especially for us during the past
week; and in planning the styles we did not hesitate to draw upon our knowledge
of the season's successes of the couturiers.
The price gives no clue to the quality. It Is almost ridiculous to think of
buying a fine silk dress for five or U dollars. But it Is equally ridiculous for a
manufacturer to allow his trained working force to remain idle and to permit
great quantities of silks to lie in his safes to perhaps go out of style, when there
is a visible market that will return to him at least the value of the materials.
These are the reasons why silk dresses, such as sold
a few weeks earlier at $12.75 to $18.75, are
selling now at $5.75
Wc have written at length that all might understand. W arc giving this an
nouncement wide publicity with hopes of reaching all those who came too late last
Saturday. It may also attract the notice of others who have not yet heard of the
opportunities in silk dresses offered at this season in this store. We will do our best
to supply all who come tomorrow. The Dresses will be on sale in two places:
In the liasement of the Old Building, Broadway Front; and in
the Costume Salons on the Second Floor of the same Building.
The sale will commence when the doors open at 8.30 o'clock tomorrow morning.
Nothing Smarter than a FINE Blue Serge
Nothing Looks Worse than the Other Kind
Nothing Happier than Our Present Combination
of the Fine Blue Serge Suit
with the Price of the Other
The serge speaks for itself tells of long, hon
est service to come, and stout resistance to sun
and showers. You have seen it in $25 suits.
The tailoring you must take our word for
unless you an" an expert, when we need say
These suits are an extra treat prepared for
this first outing day of the year. If we could sell
such serge suits at $15.50 always the serge suit
business of Manhattan would be ours to the last
man. All sizes regular, short, stout and long
up to 46 chest measurement.
