Id all of your holiday planning
I<«> think of books* They come the
nearest to being the universal gift.
They are always acceptable and
always appreciated. In no other
way can you invest your holiday
money that will make it go so far
and yield such satisfactory re
sults. Our present stock affords
you an ample selection of the
world’s literary masterpieces in
single books and in sets. • All of
the late copyrighted fiction is
here, as also the finest lot of gift
editions, Oxford Bibles, Teachers’
^ Bibles, Prayer Books, etc., we
f ‘have ever carried. Whenever
x possible we sell books at less than
1 the publishers’ prices.
This is one gift where quality
is the only test—always accepta
ble if the quality be right. Infe
rior perfumes are an abomination
at any price. Every odor in our
stock is of the high grade that
you want. We have packages of
all sizes, so that you can regulate
the cost by the size of the pack
age, but in every case the odor is
ofie that will please the. most crit
ical taste.
Roger & Gallet’s exquisite per
fumes, $1.25 up.
Pinaud’s dainty packages, $1.00
Piver’s latest perfume crea
tions, $1.00 up.
Palmer’s peerless floral extracts,
50c up.
A magnificent array of others
as well known. Most of the
above we also carry in bulk.
Bring in your bottle. Of high
grade Toilet Waters we have an
equally good stock, also of fine
imported and domestic sadhet
powders, etc.
I This is one of the standard gift
lines that should never be over
looked. It affords a wide range
of prices, and in many cases no
othev gift so desirable. We reg
ularly carry ^ large assortment of
the best imported and domestic
goods, but it has been greatly in
creased for the holiday season.
Nowhere else can you get high
grade toilet articles for less than
we ask, and nowhere else in this
vicinity will you find an assort
^ ment so ample.
I Toilet Articles in rare woods
and silver are this year’s leaders.
The latter, of course, come a little
high, but for those who wish
something uncommon you will
search long and find nothing bet
ter. In addition we have a large
stock of the older favorites,
ebony, French stag, antique ivo
ry, celluloid, etc.
We have ^rushes and Comb
Sets, Military Brushes, Mirrors,
| Hand, Stand, and Triplicate;
f Fine Toilet Sets, Hair, Hat, Nail,
$ Tooth and Clothes Brushes.
Must have candy for Christmas,
of course, and it should be finer
than ordinary. We have the ex
clusive sale of Jacob’s Chocolates
and Bon Boos. A large variety
of packages from 75 cents up to
$5.00. Nothing finer than these.
Some extra fine boxes with holly
designs, wreaths, etc., to send to
your sweetheart.
There are not many gifts so al
together satisfactory to a woman
as a piece of rich cut glass. Its
dazzling beautj', usefulness and
durability make it a perfect gift.
The pieces we are now showing
are selected from the best pro
ducts of the best makers. We
sell cut glass at a much lower
price than is usual and this ena
bles you to give-a finer piece than
you otherwise could.
Pictures appeal to everybody
—no florae has too many of them.
Those we now have are exception
ally good subjects and will go
quickly. Better make your se
lection soon. At least see them
while they are all here.
What we lack in quantity in
this line is moi’e than compensat
ed for in “quality. We selected
every piece with precise care. If
you are looking for a gift out of
the usual line see these, artistic

The desire to make pictures is
inherent ifi every normal human
being and for most of us it finds
its highest expression in the cam
era. Not only is picture taking
one of the most interesting of pas
times, it is of great educational
value as well. It leads to outdoor
living, which makes it one of the
healthiest diversions possible.
With the latest improvements it
is possible for a novice to make
practically as good pictures as the
expert. We have cameras that
embody all of these latest fea
tures. Don’t make the mistake of
