One of tlir main reasons tor the
success of these stores i*? lliat
we give our customers what they
want when they want it: more

they arc going to want and
when they arc uoin?> to want it.
We knew lasl Pall that New York
men would he wanting blue
serges this first week of May
?ukI behaved accordingly; which
is why we lut?.e so many.
Why the values arc so extraordinary
is dut mainly to war conditions
in the woolen market, hut
partly perhaps to the fact that
we foresaw them.
