Our history is briefly, rocp'ded in

. , .. . ... ., ,.
Column, aild it IS With the future
we now have to deal. There are to
day fifty-three stores Jioused under
this one roof, and some of thorn oc
cupy not less than double the en
tire floor space of the little store,
the picture of which is &hovu at
the right in the" top corner.
This is now the most comfort
able and convenient store in the en
tire West, excelled, we believe, by
none in the'wor4d in its serving ca
pacity. The sources of supply-commanded
by our immense capital enables
us to purchase, and therefore sell,
at lower prices than Otherwise p6s
siblu. Ban's department display, be
ginning Tuesday, will give you a
better idea of the marvelous re
sources of this great house, which
is now thoroughly modern in every
respect, than any printed descrip
tion could do.
Tuesday all elevators will be
running, and there are nov seven
hew, ele'etric pasSenger elevators
of large carrying rapacity running
from basemdnt to fourth floor.
We cordially invite our public to
come and 6ce the result of these
months of labor and expenditure,
and to rejoice with us that at last
all is complete and the noise and
bustle of construction at an end.

"The woman of fashion" intimates the good corset-
She seems -to have given her corset the attention
that results in assisting the dressmaker to make all
possible out of her form, and the outlines suggest
corset perfection for her figure. Only one of our
"Redfern" Models is illustrated, but there are styles
to suit all .kinds of forms, and. they will give the stylish
contour if the proper corset is selected. Our sales
women know the right styles for all figures. We have
the kind in the Redfern that curves hips, lengthens
the waist or shortens it, as the case may be, and
rounds the bust into the correct outlines.
