If you have never worn or examined the Nemo it is cer
tain that you are not acquainted with the most unique
corset of today, or of all times.
Do you know that the Nemo is so scientifically con
structed that it gives the proper support to the most vital
part of a woman's anatomy as you will see in illustration
No. 3 ? Besides, there are inset bands of Lastikops webbing
that act as an automatic massage for reducing the abdomen.
If you have worn a Corset that pushed the flesh down
so that it bulges at the sides and front of your thighs, then
you want the Nemo that is depicted in illustration No. 2
for it has bands of Lastikops Webbing that act as an auto
matic massage for reducing this surplus flesh.

LONDON - ORIENTAL RUG FAIR
An Occasion of Rare Fascination
Such an astonishing display of Ruga of quality, in surroundings glowing
with the atmosphere of the Far East, is much too unusual and important for
any rug lover to miss. It is an object lesson aa to what can be accomplished
in the gathering and showing of fine Ruga when such resources as those of
GIMBELS are back of the undertaking.
Here are magnifu ent India and Kirmanahah Carpets, bought In bond on the London docks,
and brought over here at such extraordinarily low figures that the United States Customs held
up the shipment on tbe ground of undervaluation I We are selling these Carpets at 99.10 a
square foot for Pushmena, inferior grades of which are now selling at $6, and at 99.90 a square
foot for the Kirmanshahs, which readily command 96 a square foot for equal quality.
There are stunning Turkish Caipetaat79oasauare foot for a grade that usually brings $1.60.
There is a superb collection of Rugs from Cnina, and reproductions of Chinese Ruga from
Persia, Asia Minor and Bulgaria that we are told form one of the finest collections of Chinese
Rugs if not actually the finest in America. These, too, are priced in a manner that abso
lutely disregards sentimental values.
Hundreds upon hundreds of small Rugs Bokhara, Moauls, Afghans and others that
abound in choice pieces at low prices.
The collection is one of amaing beauty be sure to see it. Sixth riser
Now It's Men's Silk Shirts at $2.60
For Usual $3.60 to $6 Kinds
Many a man casts envious eyes on Silk Shirts, appreciating their style and
comfort, who hesitates to pay $3.50 or $6, or more for them.
That man has his chance tomorrow to get all the Silk Shirts he needs this
Summer and pay only $2.60 apiece for them.
We caught a maker with a surplus of silks, which he made up into Shirts according to GIM
BEL standards. Then we added some Silk Shirts in broken ranges from our own stock.
Result: 600 fine Shirts that regularly sell at $8.60 to $6, at 99-90 each. All Japanese
habutai and tub silks of lustrous qualities that take to the water like ducks. Handsome patterns
and many different ones. Plain negligee, soft cuffs. All alses to start with. -mtim
