Pullman Week At Clemons Bros.
Here is an unusual announcement unusual because right at this time the genuine Pullman Revolving Seat
Bed Davenport is the hardest of all furniture to obtain.
The Pullman factory is swamped with orders because the public realizes what a satisfactory piece a Pullman
bed davenport is. Everybody wants a Pullman.
We have, fortunately, a liberal stock on hand, and have been promised that our immediate needs will be taken
care of. :
A week of special selling of Pullmans is therefore announced.
If you have never seen this wonderful bed davenport if you don't know of the absolute simplicity of its operation if you have
never seen the beautiful Pullman designs, call here this week, demonstration is going on all the time and you are welcome to see.
The assortment is so varied we cannot attempt to describe the articles and quote the prices thereon. We are
able to sell remarkably low, and they are going to be sold fast at these prices.
