S KANN. SON8 & CO.?Only two mom
buyisg days. announce* Harm's calendar
warmngly. Yet the belated shoppers will
find much consolation for themselves in
the announcements of the good inings this

There is a long list of toys at last-mln
ute prices, and they are l>w enough to in
sure a happy Christmas to every child In
Washington, if every child Is remembered
as It should be.
The best things are not all for the chil

the departments of silverware, glassware
and china are any indication.
Gift umbrellas, that are such sensible
gifts and always appreciated, are repre
sented by two special price offerings to
Leather goods and sterling silver hair
brushes, neckwear and art novelties, all
are good suggestions to the distracted
last- moment gift hunter.
Silks and wool waist patterns, suitably
boxed, will be something for the boy who
Is away from home to send to the mother,
sister or aunt, and tomorrow there will, as
this firm's announcement states, be some
specially good offerings in tnese two lines.
It Is so much pleasanter to shop early
in the day that for* one's own satisfac
tion, to say nothing of the consideration
