The Christmas display at William Hahn & Co.'s main shoe store, corner of 7th and K streets, is attracting considerable atten tion both from the Juvenile and the adult portions of the largely increasing throngs of holiday shopj>ers. Especial attention was directed by the enterprising firm to ward decorating the windows, and the re sults have Justified the time and expense Incurred. The handsomely attired windows direct attention to the many beautiful gifts in footwear, and the particularly attractive prices now offered by the well-known firm. A unique exhibit is in one of the windows, entitled "Xmas in Fairyland." Within the hollow of a big tree stump numbers of pretty little fairies are dancing about a Christmas tree, while without a ludicrous band of Brownies are endeavoring to get in to participate in the merrymaking. Santa Claus is seen In his reindeer sleigh ap proaching in the distance. A large-sized imitation stone house has been built inside the store and represents , "Sana Claus' workshop." His forge and his i anvil and all sorts of toys are scattered about the walls and floor of the little struc ture. Old Santa himself is seen busily en gaged preparing for his annual visit to the little folks. At intervals he shakes hands with the children, listening patiently to their "Christmas wants.".;' Assistant Appelated.
