The Last of the Fine
Old Franklin Institute
Exhibitions
was held in this old freight station
shed before we got possession of it.
The pity of it that today we hav.e no
place in the city for such exhi
bitions! A few weeks ago at the solicitation of
many, we opened our big building par
tially for six evenings to the new settlers
in our city as a compliment and 'conveni
ence Jo them, seeing that the mechanics
were employed all day.
By actual count 21,938 persons availed
themselves of the opportunity of visiting
a Store such as this. For the sake of the
new home-makers and in their interest
we did our August Sals preparations
earlier and we brought forward the
opening day of the August Sale that they
might enjoy thet advantages of dealing
in this House that originated Furniture
Sales.
We believed also that by an experience
in choosing furniture the new customers
would get a correct viev of the way we
conduct all of the departments of this
Different Kind of Store. N
Any careful observer can easily Sat
isfy himself in these four particulars:
. The preponderance of quan
tity to select from.
2. The superiority of the woods
and finish and our guarantee.
3. The reasonableness of the
prices.
4. The difference between tinsel
and the real thing to last a
lifetime.
It is not to be supposed that any one
is ready to take our opinions or the opin
ions of any sellers "as to the goods and
lay down many good hard-eained dollars
7for articles that ought to last a lifetime,
simply from reading advertisements, or
special friendliness to any storekeeper.
Not for an instant do we pre
sume to prejudice or prepossess the
judgments of purchasers, but on the
contrary, we earnestly suggest un
, hurried purchases and not taking
. anything upon a sayso until after
thorough examination as to every
detail.

THE August Furniture Sale, from which we begin to send home the J
goods tomorrow, is acknowledged to be a most remarkable event,
but it is most remarkable of all in the two things that today mat-
ter lrfost of all, whether in war or industry in magnitude and efficiency.
We take no selfish delight in dwelling upon the magnitude of this
Sale. If we do emphasize it, it is not because of what it means to us, but .:'
because of what it means to you. ' , ,
Magnitude means power. As regards furniture, it means power in?
the market, the power to handle
comparative expense, it means quantity - buying, it means qualityr
buying and it means low pricing. ;
It means a variety which makes
nobody an excuse for buying the
a bunch of regrets.
It means safety, it means character, it means beauty, it means econ
omy. It makes for a higher standard of quality and of service, because
it educates people in regard to both of these things.
It implies the elimination of the unworthy, the flimsy, the doubtful
and the downright trashy.
It makes for efficiency and consequently for economy; because'
whatever prevents wastage of money or motion in buying and assem
bling furniture is bound to mean economy to the ultimate user of the
furniture.
The August Furniture Sale, which gets into full swing tomorrow,
is a real and true illustration of what is stated here.
In magnitude and efficiency and economy it is the first retail store
event of the world.
More than fifteen thousand pieces of the finest furniture in the
'world are on the floors; two great warehouses are full and carloads are
still to come.
All our stocks are in it, regular stock and new purchases, at reduc
tions of 10 to 50 per cent:
All our energies are in it, and all our determination to make it the
most genuinely helpful sale for everybody who appreciates genuine
things.

The Government and the Fashions
in Women's Shoes
The War Government of United States,
looking to the conservation of man power,
has, througli the War Industries Board,
made certain regulations in regard to the
future fashions of shoes.
After the present stocks of leathers al
ready cut by manufacturers are disposed of,
the Government desires that women's shoe
fashions shall be limited to black, various
shades of tan and white in leather and fab
rics used in the manufacture of shoos and
overgaiters.
These are restrictions upon tanners and
leather manufacturers and not upon retailers
or the public.
As a matter of fact, the Government, for
the release of capital tied up in stocks and
in order that there may be no waste, is anx
ious that all stocks in the hands of manu
facturers and "wholesalers and retailers
should be cleared out completely.
