St i
Philadelphia MayStill Come
Into Her Own
if her leading men and wqmen will get busy.
These are things we can have:.
The Delaware on both sides lined with
shipyards and drydocks, and League Island
the nation's chief naval station.
The Midvalc, the center of a mighty
city of steel works.
Kensington, with its vast pppulation
of skilled workers in all classes of manufac
turing, a thrice city of textiles.
A comparatively inexpensive short
canal dug through the sand to the Atlantic
Ocean for ocean vessels and cheap passenger
steamboat service to the greatest of the
Summer resorts of the United States.
A new spirit ivith every man and
woman inclined to do fine things!
Increased banking capital and im
proved financial situation!
The planting of new enterprises to be
ready for extensive operations after the
coming victory and the boys come home
All these and other considerations also should
rouse the city to reorganize herself for days of great
things ahead of us, if wc choose to be up and doing.
This Store of ours did not grow over night. It
had to be planned, planted and worked over to reach
the fruition it now enjoys.

"How much new furniture does my home need right v
This is the time of all times for you to ask yourself that
question in real earnest.
This is the sale of all sales, the great Wanamaker -August
Furniture Sale, from which to supply your needs.
This is the sale which brings the goods that people want,
and brings them in a variety with which no other variety
even begins to compare.
It means economy of the kind that is backed by good
quality in the thing one buys.
It means service and satisfaction through the years
that one has to live with the furniture one buys.
The question is do you want to choose where choos
ing is easiest, and safest and most comfortable?
Do you want to choose where there is most of the
kinds of furniture that you are looking for?
Do you want to choose where there is no element of
chance, but every element of certainty, the certainty of get
ting the best furniture to be had for the price, no matter how
much you might want to pay and no matter how little?
You can readily see that the whole thing is a simple
business proposition. In the long run it means dollars in
your pocket or out of it.
Whether they are to be in it or outof it, it is you who are
to decide. Don't you think it would be a good thing for you
to come tomorrow and see for yourself the proof that this
sale has more behind it than any sale ever held more
goods and finer goods, more heart, more helpfulness, more
of everything needed to make it the greatest event of its
kind in the world.
All Our Stocks Are in
This Sale-
regular stocks, as well as wonderful new purchases, the lat
ter amounting roughly to one million dollars. Prices are 10
to 50 per cent below our regular markings.
