to thank you for the many compliments received of late on our Window Displays, and in fact on the entire stock and especially the New Novelties we have added from
time to time, It proves to us that you appreciate our efforts in keeping with the tide. Our progressive business means putting all the force of brains and energy of Modern
Business Methods behind every effort. It means careful searching and cfose comparison of qualities and prices in order to sift from the mass of goods in the markets the
kinds the people want and prices they want to pav. Every day is a Bargain Day with us. We are placing Furniture, Carpets, Curtains and all Household Necessities within the reach of all, not for
