We can't tell about all of them in one advertisement, and it's hard to choose. In a general way we can say that never before in the history of this store, nor in the history of this town, was there ever brought here, such a stock of dry goods as we are showing this season. We have not only a larger variety than ever before, but many finer grades than we have formerly carried. The average of quality is better, we bought no "cheap" stuff whatever. Our trade, has, for the past few years, been rapidly drifting away from shoddy goods, the demand for that class has apparantly grown less and less and while we have not, for some time, bought much of it, we thought we would be safe in leaving it entirely alone. Bargains we have, but not of the shoddy order. Anything we may offer at a special price you may depend on it being worth coming after. The advent of new goods, almost daily, and the unusual trade we have been having, has prevented our arranging these goods as con veniently as we would wish. We are making some progress, however, and we hope to soon have them so that we can show them in detail. i. ...SILK5... A larger stock than is usually carried in towns smaller than Des Moines.

Is 4 JJi, i, We believe that we must sell more pairs of Hose (ladies' and children's) each year than any store in the state doing twice the general business we do. We have been told that our orders in this depart ment exceed any retailer outside of the cities or large towns. Our first purchase this season was for 214 dozen which, if you stop to figure a little, means a great many pairs. We think the reason of our immense sales in this department is because we have, for pears, endeavored to give our customers the very best value obtainable for the price paid. We are fortunate, too, in having a brand which is as nearly perfect as it is possible to make as to color and elasticity. In our stock this season you will find a full assortment of Black, Tan, Red and White Hosiery for ladies' and children, at prices-quality con sidered—decidedly lower than sold in most stores. We desire to call special attention to the line of Children's Black Cotton Hose we are selling at 15c a pair. They area fast, brilliant black, very elastic double thread foot and knee, full length legs, one by one rib, and in value equal to to any 20c hose the market. We have plenty of them, come any time. 1 1 i' n\ r^Z\ /.\% ft fj: J* ft ft ft j* ft 7¥^if£ Jf fcv SKIRTS—CAPES. The Skirts are in price from $2.00 to $12.50.
