is one department in which
f broken lots make such a trilling

to treat them like all the rest
of the stocks. You'll find a cou

take the sharpest price cutter
of all and give a flip that would

THE new vear shall begin at the Busy Corner in the midst of a swirl of bargaining. The need of greai stocks passed away with the outgoing of the old i-ycl.-. I-or
maiiv weeks to come tjic question of selling with profit will be out of all consideration the problem that faces the merchant is the realization of cost. Busi
ness, vou know, is like evervthin" else it has its period of sunshine and its stretches of shadow. The most bustling of all months has barely passed away
what is usuallv the dullest time of the vear starts in todav. But it shan't be so at this store. We shall set about enlivening from the onset. Other stores may
wait a while longer and continue to eke out a minimum of sales at a maximum of profit. We prefer to turn stock into cash. Wvi' planning lor spring already,
and ready monev possesses magic powers. Tomorrow the ball starts, and its rolling will be at breakneck speed from I lie moment oi the start oil.
Slashing and Cutting Away of the Cloak Stock !
Dame Prudence holds a warning finger and advises no quarter here. And though we'd rather wait a
few weeks and hold on to profit just a little while longer, fctill. we arc gainers by being losers. You see
the other stores will be clearing out then, and being the first in the field, there is no detracting element
to turn aside the full tide of response that our reductions are bound to call forth. You never had such
a perfect stock ottered to you on a clearance basis. You usually come expecting broken lines and hap
hazard sizes, but we'll surprise you Tuesday. We'll give you a perfect stock. Hardly a lapse in the
assortment. Goods that include all the demanded shades and extreme cuts. Given to you at prices that
are daring even for the "Busy Corner." That are absolutely devoid of profit. And, in many cases,
represent an even half of cost itself.

The holidays left the umbrella
stock cleaned np about as near
as Hiiytliiiir could have left it.
Our buyer sent straightway
on u search for new goods and
met the best kind of luck at the
first manufacturer. It was the
turn of speculation that gave us
these goods so much under
price. The firm made up dou
ble stocks in preparation for n
rush of orders that would come
with the rainy season. Such
was not the case, and when our
buyer entered their phu-e and
made them an offer for all they
had on hand, it meant $2.."0

most half price, and, of course,
we got them. They're both

one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
after each meal. 1 advise them because
they contain no harmful drugs, but arc

Cheap cathartic medicines claiming to
cure dyspepsia and indigestion can have
no effect whatever in actively digesting
the food, and to call any cathartic medicine
a cure for indigestion is a misnomer.
Every druggist in the United States and
