In our Basement store near Pearl street side we have arranged to-day for quick selling certain mer chandise which we do not wish to continue in our stock Nothing wrong with any of these things except that they are short ends, odd pieces and certain slow selling articles gathered from all over the store. The prices in every instance will be such a small fraction of the value that a purchase almost becomes a gift.
