A Spring Trade Chorus.- WANAMAKER'S Various, important, interesting and profitable to our Public are the statements about the store, the goods, the prices, printed in the news of today. Note carefully the classification of special offerings. ' First The store at large presents numerous items, including several very important and attractive bargains. Second. The Under-Price Store, in which every offering advertised is a very special bargain, of the sorts that are exceptional and peculiar to this business. — — — — The Store at Large The metaphor of the double team— stale, perhaps trite— fits. Regular merchandise and regular bargains. The coming and going seasons are reflected with the certainty of natural process in our mer chandise for the person— man, woman, child— and the home— town house, apartment, Summer cottage. Standard staples and passing novelties fill the house with our globe-trotters' trophies in merchandise. But remember that all the stocks are emphasized with the price-advantage that comes from contact of consumer and producer through the Wanamaker magnetism. Hence the Basement does not hold all the bargains. Seven Hundred SILK DRESSES Fads, Exact and Extraordinary They arc all new— made within two weeks. It came about thus: xV great costume manufacturer, of international fame, had too many dress silks — very much too many. iXot being a silk merchant he couldn't sell them. May has been cool ■ — Spring- backward. Dresses at our prices — your prices— solved his case. They're on sale today. 1 That's ail the argument. You, our great Dress and Cloak constituency, gave us the power. The price- victory is with the seven hundred that will take them. At the head of this "news'' is a picture that was composed from the actual dresses. They are made from recent Paris models exclusively, by silk dress tailors. Details are pretty and perfect; a limited number are in the Tyrolese Bretelle styles. The materials are varied — stripes, checks, dots, fancy shots, iridescent colors. You'd pay more if or making alone, or material alone. The price for the choice is $IOJS Intelligent women need no more information upon this topic. Second noor, Broadway. A Sale For All Who Need Good SHOES A Sale that puts no price-penalty on good looks and honest shoemaking. *>fo?t of the shoes have been specially made up for us, when regular orders fell ofT in the factories. We had picked the leathers and styles, and accepted deliveries at the convenience of the manufacturers. They were glad to make big concessions — though the shoes are epic-span-new, and size-ranges com plet£. Other groups are composed of odd lots of shoes that have accumulated in our own stocks, and arc now marked at half price. Then there are certain lots that were purchased from manufacturers at much below regular prices. !All are sold with the Wanamaker guarantee of good service.
