WW Tell the Tale
If you have any doubt as to the best place to spend
your money for DRESS GOODS, CLOAKS, COL

making the comparison. This is a very important
point to us, for we are Certain that the values we
offer will obtain the patronage of all well posted
buyers who see them. Our endeavor has been to
show a stock for fall superior to any previously of
fered to our customers. That we have succeeded is
demonstrated by the first half of the season's business
which is larger by far than ever obtained before.
The handsomely tailored garments, which we are
showing in our cloak department, easily prove our
leadership in this line. More stylish, better made,
greater variety cannot be found anywhere, the
larger city stores not excepted. In regard to prices,
we can save you money. This combination of
goods and prices is what crowds our store every

cess has been won by giving them all this at prices
they can afford and are willing to pay. •...
