WANT TO GET
We are getting ready for the spring business. New goods
are arriving every day, and we have got to arrange our floors so
as to show them. We haven't any odds and ends or "old timers,"
for all our stock is fresh and new, but we have marked a lUrge
number of pieces at reduced prices in order to hasten their depar
ture and make room for still newer goods.
It must be borne in mind that the prices at which these goods
are marked are in every case much lower than can be found on
similar goods elsewheie, and any reduction from our already close
prices means a big saving to the purdhaser.
