Tables Now Being Reserved Our Annual January Linen Sale Will Start Monday, Jatiuary 3, 19 1 6 Watch Sunday Papers 3? dnb Utl Shu The Sunday Evening Times WASHINGTON'S Sure-Hit ADVERTISING Medium Clearing-Up Sale of Books Our after-holiday sale of Books is always an important one from the shopper's point of view. - i In order to keep our, regular stock of Books fresh and clean, and in good condition, all unattractive ones must be disposed of and this we try to do by offering them to our customers at Very Low Prices This action on our part places before our patrons a won derful opportunity to purchase some very desirable books at prices which would be considered incredible under the usual trade' conditions. ' j 1 Soiled, Hurt and Handled Books The usual holiday rush leaves us with many copies of de sirable Books on our hands that show the sad results of handling by curious and unfriendly hands. Some have the leaves torn in some trifling manner, some the corners marred, others are ac tually soiled from rough and improper inspection, while many are hurt and scuffed and mistreated in many ways, making them undesirable in one sense at least appearance and neatness, but the reading quality and actual value still retain its perfection. These Books havesio go in order to keep our regular stock fresh and clean so we have priced all of them very low. Some "Remainders" of Books There are always a few "Remainders" from the publishers' discarded bins, where weof ten find very choice Books at a frac tion of their real value. These with such odds and ends from our own stock as we do not care to continue, are offered at what would be termed "bargains" if we were to use a common expres sion in daily use, but wfyich we always eliminate from our adver tising. The prices are made very low because we want them to go out and make room for newer items, and bs . cause we want to offer good books at low prices. All to Go at Reduced Prices We are unable to enumerate all the books, or even all the different kinds of books which go to make up this great collec tion, but among them will be found Books for the little children, with colored pictures for older boys and girls who fead easily, and a few handsomely bound and illustrated Books which were originally priced much higher. . Fiction by both new and old writers mystery and de tective stories, sentimental and sometimes almost silly, : robust and active romance. These are in abundance as ' T Low as 25c and 50c. History of our own and foreign countries will be found , in small quantities, but good selections. 'Biographies of ( men and women of some prominence in large quantU ties; devotional works of extensive variety and a wide ; range of subjects, a few Bibles and Testaments, Serious Essays, Confiding Cook Boojcs, Nature Books and JJ Out-of-door Volumes, together with Books on the great European war, Political Economy, Sociology and Kin dred Subjects. These make up a partial list of Books offered. It is not pos sible to catalogue them as in many instances there are but one or two of a kind. Persons interested will see at once the necessity for an early call iri order to secure the best of the offerings. Second floor, F et '
