AID OUR PROGRESS Progress and prosperity go hand in hand. Our business has again outgrown the property in
which it is housed, and again we must rebuild enlarge. May l the builders take possession of the entire 8th Street Annex,
which will be razed to the ground and be supplanted with a modern 6-story structure of steel. The departments there located,
must be moved to the 7th Street building. Their stocks must be immediately reduced and the stocks of every other depart-'
ment must likewise be reduced to give a part of their space to the transplanted departments. n
SHARE OUR PROSPERITY We will pay you well to help us make these necessary stock reductions at once throughout
the entire store. Every department manager has received their orders, and our daily announcements will convince you that
these incomparable values are unmatchable. Thousands of other specially-priced lots, too numerous to men.tion and not adver
tised, will be displayed around the store and designated by special tickets. Look for them.
