If A miliar and well Known as the store itseit. A yearly sale, inaugurated many years ago with a clearly defined idea in view of ever keep ing the stocks new, clean, bright and fresh. A great many people know how well it has served its purpose and the great advantages it offers for procuring the highest grades of merchandise at smallest kind of cost. A fraction of real worth, no matter how good the articles may be, how costly or rare in kind, if for some unexplainable reason it has not sold when this sale is announced, it gets quick marching orders. And this method, coupled with the extraordinary lib eral buying, always practiced, is responsible in a great measure, for the unusual shopping advantages which have contributed to the growth and the development of this business. To keep closely in touch with all that is newest and best in women's dress as any store anywhere is the expectation. 1 his tates taking liberally, very liberal! new creations as they appear and it brings to Burlington and Vermont a splendid shopping place hard to equal. An increased business and consequent increased stocks all over the house brings to this Clearance Sale this time more and better things than usual.
