Tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday are the last three days
before the final count. _ . ,
On the first of February we take inventory, and one 01 the
important considerations is to have as little stock as possible.

many cases. It's a simple case of sweeping out all winter stock
at the price that will bring the quickest action and you are al
ways the gainer. Plenty of wintry weather yet to come, and these
irarments will surelv come in handy.
