A tissue of sunshine and moonbeams, mixed with the laughter of children and the tears of the sky that fall in the form of showers. It is painted with the pink of peach blossoms, the gold of the dandelion, the blue of the violet and the blush of the red, red rose. It is a beautiful cloth—the fabric of Spring—beautiful. It is woven by the child April, and her loom is the whole wide world, her tutor is great mother Nature, the skillfulest of all artisans. Well, what has that to do with hats? It has ALL to do with them! The Marx hats are lovely and beautiful because they are inspired by great mother Nature! Flowers, Flowers, Flowers; bowers, terraces, gar dens of flowers and foliage. The art in them is easy and natural. The lines of a nodding lily, the grace of a petal appropriated to millinery. We doff our hats to no one, we acknowledge no supremacy. Ours are triumphs of the millinery art, surpassing all contemporary efforts. It is well that you know these facts now that the choosing of the Easter hat cannot be postponed. Whether you pay $5 or $50, or any price between, we assure you of the utmost. It is well that you know that the millinery stars of Paris do not eclipse the stars at Marx’s. • Ours are indeed glorious Easter Hats. I4-k Gold Filled Bracelets Ou£ Pieces 100 Per Cent Lower The basic, deep down foundation of this Jewelry store is correct—it is mercantile. We started the de partment by inculcating the right principles in its busi ness primer. Our ideas of conducting it are diametri cally opposed to those of the exclusive store. Jewelry may be art, but the buying and selling of it is business. Therefore, it is both art and merchandise. You can make nothing else out of it. Since it is merchandise, we buy it and sell it as we do all other merchandise— .Hati fair, legitimate profit, never attaching to it a mythi cal “artistic” value in order to extract three profits from you. J That explains why it is a fact and not a fiction /''that our prices for Jewelry are frequently ONE HUN DRED PER CENT. LOWER than those of the exclu sive jeweler. We direct your attention to the following Bracelets and their prices: 14 karat gold filled, warranted; scores of styles, chased, filigreed and plain, set with stones and pearls. All extremely beautiful and at the prices they are utterly matchless values—$2 to $8. For Cool Summer Dresses These DaintyLA WNS at I2'2c yd.

These are Artistic Pillow Tops, 25c Easier to find a needle in a hay stack than art in the usual art goods department. You will notice that the pillow tops at Marx’s are not of the ragtime variety. They stand in striking contrast with those you generally see. These are meant to adorn, not to detract. Yet the prices are the. same—or lower. Tomorrow’s sale at 25c each is an instance in which they are vastly lower. Many subjects to choose from. Tapesiries and Denims. Mercerized cords—look like silk, three and one-half yards long, large tassels, 23c each. An Eye for an Eye, 9c For a Tooth Brush Three hundred tooth brushes came to us via. the bargain route.

Locks and Curls of Real Halr It is a singular fact, and one worth noting: Whenever Marx comes in direct competition with any other store you will find that our prices are always materially and emphatically lower. We recently installed a large and complete stock of hair goods. The excursion into the new field has been remarkably successful. The reason, as we have been reliably informed, if: our hair goods are not only better, but our prices are easily a HALF LESS- Unbiased comparisons will prove what we say. Pompadour Puffs, neck curls, Rats and side puffs of real human hair, in large varieties. Japanese Card Cases at 48c Card' Cases worth $1 at 48c should prove a drawing card. Of splendid leather, embossed In characteristic Japanese fashion. Not many—only a few. After this lot we hardly hope to get more to sell at the same price.

Centuries ago when her people first robbed the cocoon of its glisten ing fibres and wove it into a rough fabric, they did bet ter than they knew. This thready, unfinished natural silk is known as Pongee. It is invulnerable; it wears forever and a day. Pongee has now become the style. Everybody wants it. Pongee’s the thing. Of course, like in other things, there are good, bad and indifferent Pongees. With the latter two we have nothing to do. Of the good Pongees, the makes known as Rubiayat and Bur mah are the best. Now comes the point of this silk story. Retailers everywhere ask 75c for the Rubiayat, and $1 for the Burmah. Six cents, of course, is not much to save, yet it is six cents. However, thirty-one cents is really worth while. Tomorrow you may save either one of these savings, for we will sell the Rubiayat and Bur mah Pongees at 69c. Old rose, new blue and natural shades. It is an emphatic and decisive silk victory for you and for Marx’s. 60c to 75c Jap and Taffeta Silk Pick it up—look at it, At Taffeta—black—close slide the fingers over it- compact weaving pro* Easy to SEE and to ducing a FIRM silk- 19 FEEL that it is WORTH inches wide.

Silk Finish Panama, 1.00 The two items mentioned above are representative bargains from the Dress Goods Stock. Each is worth a fourth to a half more- They are not exactly specials, they were bought in the usual manner—but they are bargains, the prices stand for savings The alchemy of Marx’s methods makes them big values- We buy closer and we mark our Black Goods at a narrower margin of profit. LINED/ HANDKERCHIEFS Of linen, flaxy, hefty linen, as thin as mist nearly, yet it is the best, longest wearing, most easily laundered handkerchief we ever had at anywhere near the price. Initialed, and the work is genuine needle art, so dainty and so clear, without a rough or strag gling thread. Hemstitched too, we nearly forgot that. Six for 75c. Worth 1.00, or worth nothing. Big Values in German Linens Looks as If the Germans have succeeded in putting their national salient characteristics in the linens they make. Just a glance at these German damasks will reveal that they are sturdy and solid, capable of roughing all sorts of hard service. We don't know why the maker sacrificed them. However, the fact that he did is sufficient. Save a Fourth. 72-lnch bleached and unbleached German Damask, heavy weight, many fine patterns. Worth 85c. Special at due yard. 72-lnch Bleached German Damaak, made of 'hard twisted threads; pure linen. Worth J1.00. Special at 79c yard. Direct Buying of HOSIER\ Makes These Bargains They tell us, those who know, that a straight line is the shortest distance between two points. Tak ing that fact away from geometry and applying it prac tically to dry goods, we find that straight purchasing, that is, direct buying from original, first sources brings the shortest prices between maker and consumer. To demonstrate the proposition further and clearer we shall use hosiery as an example. We do not buy from the jobber. Because why? t Because the jobber in turn must buy from the importer, who in turn must buy from the manufacturers. It is the round-about crooked way, tedious and costly, having two unnecessary profits attached to it. But we DO buy from FIRST HANDS—the manu facturers themselves—thereby eliminating all useless profits—saving the expenses of handling and rehandling —getting the hosiery in a straight, direct bee line. And so it follows, as the dav the night, that our hosiery is BOUND to be CHEAPER in price. The fact is illus trated very forcibly by this silk hose at $1.25. Others ask #1.7?," Because why? Because they buy it in a round-about way—paying three profits and adding one of their own. They cannot get it that way and sell it for less than #1.7?. Of pure raw silk, boots of lisle, better from the standpoint of service than silk. In black. Or silk, at 98c, worth $1-50. Violet, Green, Reseda, Sky, Red, Pink, French Blue, White. Navy and Grey, A splendid wear-well hose At 50c—of lisle silk, silk em broidery, in scores of attractive patterns, a few lace and all over styles. WHITE PARASOLS “OPENING” Of linen and silk. Embroidered, hand painted and piinted floral, Dresden and Per sian patterns. Other styles, destined for great popularity are the green and white and black and white shepherd checks with wide solid colored borders. Long “tall” wood handles, coaching style, in uniquely carved effects. No one ever dreamed that the prosaic old umbrella could be lifted and idealized into such magnificent , . parasols. * We think, in fact, we know that our col lection is not matched in Birmingham. Dress the WINDOWS In COOL Swisses for the Summer The lace curtains are dingy and dirty. You are tired - of looking at them. You want a change.
