WILL BE A SURPRISE for you on the big
bargain counter today. Yesterday there was a big
crowd around this counter all day. It is in every sense
what we claim it to be —a genuine bargain counter. Hund
reds of bargains of the most pronounced character. Choice
goods and choice bargains. New goods will be added each
day and from this time forward the bargain counter will he
the big attraction in this house. Every article without an
exception has been placed upon the counter for less money
than it would sell for ou the regular counters. Some goods
are sold for 25 per cent less. Others 50 per cent less and
some goods are sold for about one-quarter the regular price.
In order to give the counter a big impetus we will place
some extraordinary bargains on this counter today. Nearly
200 feet of counter room and every article a genuine bargain*
It is now one of the principles of trade that inducements
must be offered to attract the crowds and it is the crowds
that buy dry goods. i2%c for embroideries that sell up
to 50c. 5c for veilings that sell up to 50c. 25c for laces
that sell up to $1. Dress trimmings that have been selling
up to $2 now 25c for the choice. Linen collars ie each.
Only a few sample prices. Nearly every stock in the house
is represented on this counter and nearly all the employees
were called in to wait upon the people at times yesterday.
It is an old saying, sell the goods cheap and the people will
buy. The bargain counter is the place to buy goods at a
very low price. It is the place to buy goods at less than the
regular price. Today we place on sale some remarkable bar
gains. It will pay you to come in and look them over.
Dolls, embroidery, silk scarfs, pon pons, chenilles, arrasenes,
shoes, stockings, fringes, gimps, yarns, buttons. These and
hundreds of other items will be found on the bargain
counter at bargain prices. Sheward's bargain counter will
be the big thing in the dry goods line before another
