ABERNETHY Head of Church Street. A Full Week of Gingham Displays A full week of lively cutting all through the collection of washable fabrics. A Sale that should not be over looked. because it cannot be repeated. The displays include much that is not only rare and particularly choice, but many clever novelties that always are exclusive and limited in quantity are now making their last appear ance. And, again, there are certain price ad vantages being presented this week that mean much to any who would economize upon the summer's needs. Look Along the Ten Special Counters in the Basement To-day where a thousand or more of short lengths of washable fabrics are displayed. A full season's supply could easily be chosen here from these last ends and at a cost that would mean a considerable saving. GINGHAMS, VOILES, white and printed fabrics of every description each piece plain ly marked for the entire piece. This is a time when the Home Journal Patterns perform a great service When the cotton dresses are being planned and made when the sewing for children is having attention, one of these paper patterns costing only 15, 20 or 25c saves the cost of an expensive dressmaker and with a little per sonal attention, the summer outfit may be se cured at very small cost.
