A great many remarlcablj1 attractiv exhibits
here to see and to consider.
Burlington, never had a shopping place so hounti
fully prepared to meet the every requirement.
A store beautiful. In. every department and in
every come) where there's a foot of space devoted to
merchandise, there's a brightness, a freshness, a real
beauty in everything shown which is not only un
common but exceedingly hard, to find in. any city.
Many wonder why it is so, here in this compara
tively small city. Everybody who is familiar with
the store and its accomplishments freely expresses the
conviction that there is not an item shown which they
would not like to have and this speaks volumes for
such a great gathering of merchandise filling three large
floors to their fullest capacity.
As worthy examples of exceptional advantages
we would direct attention to the Basement depart
