With our Spring Stocks complete and larger than thoy woro a year ago, wo look for record-breaking eales
in each respective department, Tho opening of tho new spring goods at the "Star's" prices always spurs tho buy

that our prices aro at ull times absolutely tho lowest, aud tho marvelous expansion of tur business shows that tho
greater part of Ilono county's buying public appreciates our etl'orts to rcduco Uio cost of tho better grades of mer
