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.
