A Woman Wanted to Know ■K * The meaning of these August Sales of Furniture She wondered why it would be mor® to her advantage to buy house furnishings in August thon in Hecemher, or April, or any other-month. We think our explanation to the Woman who Wanted to Know à r. will interest every woman who our store aa an example. We've been in this business a long time. We've buil t a reputation for honesty of merchandise and fair dealing of which we are proud. For that reason we feel justified in telling her about Mil lers store anti Miller's goods and Miller's methods has, or ever expects to have, a home To answer her we took 8Bb;< f f'A # (lis mßt . - H w S ■ C J i In the business of furnishing homes, August was the dull month Very little furniture was bought by the housewife but conditions made it necessary that the dealer carry just as large a stock as if the selling wore brisk. New goods must be bought all the time in order to keep pace with the demand. The August sale was devised as a method of moving these stocks. And August once the month of idleness became the busiest part of the year, create this demand an exceptional advantage had to be shown the customer. So this is what you gain by buying your household furnishings now. j. In order to ^ I , j ■ >• tV * The price of each and every article of f urniture in our store is cut from ten to fifty per cent.
