Even in the early summer it was almost impossible to contract for more than a very limited quantity. The reasons for this extraordinary demand are several, most im portant of which is their popularity for decorative purposes in nearly every clubhouse in the land. Besides, almost every house wife is anxious to fit up a den, a Dutch room or some other equally novel and attractive room, wh<Te steins add so much to the scheme in view. Our display of Imported Steins is complete and the prices decidedly moderate. Your inspection invited.
