they will be for a number of years.
CJ We are greatly pleased with
our Fall Merchandise the
woolens are fine, the models
graceful and attractive, and
our various manufacturers
have excelled themselves in
the workmanship of the gar

an additional inducement, we
are anticipating a banner

for either Suits or Tep Coats
is $30. We have excellent
assortments at that price
