The Caledonia Argus mentions as one

Democratic papers all over the country
criticised the acts of the administration,
and especially the dereliction of con
mess in not carrying out the command
iuid upon it by the convention in Chi
cago. Undoubtedly there is a great
deal of truth in this. This attitude of
the Democratic press is not dun to mere
eaDtiousness or to a fault-finding spirit,
but is inherent in the ■very nature of
Democracy. Individualism is its very
essence. The Democrat who is not an
Individualist is not of that party.
Hie basis of Democracy is the riirht
of the Individual to his own opinions
and their expression. Democracy does
not regard the government as a wise
parent, to whose command absolute sub
mission is to be Riven, but regards it
rather as his agent, to whom he is free
to express his opinions and with whom
he Is free to differ. This characteristic
is as distinctively Democratic as sub
mission and obedience is paternalistic.
The contrast between the course of re
publican and Democratic papers In their
treatment of their respective adminis
trations fully illustrates this. Here and
there in the Republican press is an edi
tor who reserves the right of Judgment,
but the great mass of them bow then
heads submissively to the. mandates of
the managers. The .acts of the admin
istration are to be loyally supported.
Whatever its congress decides to do
must be upheld and defended, in the
creed of Republicanism is written the
commandment to the voters, "Cbildre n,
obey your bosses."
Nothing has been the occasion of so
much surprised, if pleased, continent on
the part of Republican papers as this
attitude of Democrats aud of Democratic
papers. It is something that they, ac
customed to docile submission.could not
comprehend. But it ia the Democratic
Recent advices are that an under
standing has been reached between
Russia and England and other European
powers by which, at last, the Darda
nelles will be opened to the war ships of
Russia and her Black sea fleets may
join the Russian fleet iv the Mediter
ranean. If this becomes a fact it is one
of the most important events of the
year. It indicates a tndical change in
the policy of England and other con
tinental nations, which for fifty years
has kent this back door of Russia
locked against her navies.
With stubborn pertinacity Russia has
insisted upon having access for her
navies through the Dardanelles. Foe
this purpose she has waged two great
wars. It was tne underlying motivo
which precipitated the Crimean war,
and it was for this purpose that she en
gaged in ti:e war with Turkey. It was
a compliance with this demand that her
armies before Constantinople extorted
from the sultan, and the real object of
the war was defeated by the negotia
tions which ended in the treaty of Ber
lin. If this long struggle shall have
been ended through the influence of
England, its effect will be to remove
that cloud of jealousy which has kept
these two nations in an attitude of hos
tility for so many years. It will settle
the Eastern question and remove l'rom
England all tear of incursion ot the
Russians upon her East Indian terri
tories. Its further value is as an addi
tional guarantee of the continuance of
that policy of peace under Nicholas
which was a prominent feature of tho
policy of his father. It is an admission,
furthermore, that the contention of
Russia was right, and thai the policy of
locking her back door was unwise and
The state of Massachusetts has a stat
ute requiring all corporations to tile
with the secretary ot state each year a
detailed statement of their business.
The sugar trust. Hushed with its demon
stration of power over both the Itepub
lican and Democratic congresses,refused
to obey this law, and was promptly
brought to book by the attorney general
and finally submitted and made its re
port. While there may be some question
as to the propriety requiring statements
from corporations, which are purely
private business concerns, there is none
as to those which derive their existence
from the exercise of eminent domain or
those which are quasi public iv their
nature. The state already requires it of
railroads operating within its borders,
and there is no reason why it should not
be. extended to include street car. water
works. j;as and electric lijrht companies.
These corporations all perform public
functions. They derive their existence
from grants of the public. They deriv«
their revenue from the public. It is as
sumed that the charges they make for
their various services are reasonable.
But whether they are or not depends
upon the cost of plant, operation ana
Income. The public has a richt to have
this knowledge to know whether the
ehanres are reasonable or not. It, as
most of these corporations declare, iheir
margin of profit is very smali, such
statements would furnish to the public
proof of it, and remove the impression
that th« charges for service are dispro
portionate to the services rendered.
At the bottom this is the feeling which
gives impetus to tiie movement tor tiie
transfer of these functions to the state
or the municipality. So far as the
statements of the business of these cor
porations would show a reasonable mar
gin of prolit to tiie investors it would
have the tendency to remove the dispo
sition towards governmental ownership,
while opposition to any inch measure
requiring .such statements would bo ac
cepted as conclusive evidence of the
truth of the general belief in exorbitant

Wagner*! beautiful and romantic
opera "Lohengrin." a musical drama
based on tin- legend of King Arthur and
th« Holy Grail, was attempted by the
Tavary company last night with good
result*. The story of the opeia, while
being a little mixed with the Celtic
legend so popular with Modern poets,
is nevertheless distinctively German in
all respects, and has come down from
the time of German Minnesingers. The
opera, which is one of the most popular
of all of Wagner's great works, has
been heard so often, presented by thy
great opera companies, that it is famil
iar in a certain way to the music-lov
ing public, and when it is announced
they anticipate a good performance of
it. The rendering of it last night was
good, so far as the ability of the com
pany went, but it was felt that the com
iir.ny had essayed too great a task for
their. vocal or instrumental strength.
The individual work was. as a whole,
very creditable, but the greatest weak
ness was in the ensemble work. This
was apparent in the orchestra, which
was Bottling in comparison to what it
should have been.
Tavary won new laurels by her ex
cellent work as Elsa, and in this very
difficult role was heartily encored. Ber
best effort was the love song, "Euch
Luften,'" which is sung in the balcony
scene of the Meoud act. In this dainty
effort the pathos mul tenderness of her
finely cultivated voice are shown in de
lightful contrast to her more dramatic
efforts in other parts. The scene be
tween Mme. Tavary as FJsie and Mme.
yon Doenboff asOrtund in the begin
ning of the second act was a splendid
effort and was rapturously encored. In
this act the solo work of Mme. yon
Doenhoff was of high order, and in rt
she trave full nlay to her powers in a
dramatic way as well as vocally. Payne
Clark ps Lohengrin was very pleasing,
and his voice, while scarcely equal
to the demands of the role, was
nevertheless handled in an artistic
way. and on the whole his presentation
of the hero was good. His work is
smooth and his conception of the part
excellent, and in the lighter and more
delicate parts of his role his singing was
very delightful, and was appreciated by
the audience. William H. Hamilton as
King Henry was very good, his strong
voice easily sustaining the role. Wiil
iatn Schuster as the herald left but
little to be wished for iv the presenta
tion of the character, and was strong
and manly In every situation. William
Mertens as Frederick was ud to his
usual excellence, both vocally and
dramatically, and was throughout well
sustained. Taking the opera through
out, it is likely that the finest scene of
all was that of the third act, when in
the bridal chamber Elsa demands to
know Lohengrin's secret, and almost
succeeds in wringing it from him by
wiles bewitching. The whola scene,
until interrupted by the intrusion of
Teirainund, is an exquisite picture of
love and tenderness.
The most intense interest has been
focused upon the great representation
of the operatic novelties "I' Pagliaeci"
and '•Cavallerialluslicana" by the Tava
ry Opera company, and the Metropoli
tan will have a crowded house tonight.
These two now famous operas are worth
more than the mere passing thought,
and it is doubtful if they have ever been
heard sung by a more superb cast of
artists than will appear in each opera.
Mine. Tavary has appeared in the in
tensely dramatic role of Sautuzzeo with
almost phenomenal success, while A. L.
Guille. the siiver-Toiced tenor, will ap
pear in the part of Pagliaccio, a role he
created in Italy with great success, and
he will also sing the part of Turido in
"Cavatkria." These two operas will
also serve to introduce two new mem
bers of the Tavary company who have
not yet appeared— Mme. Theo Doree,
the brilliant mezzo-soprano, and Nina
Bertini-llumphreys. William Mertens.
Schuster, Komaui, Keady and the full
strength of the company will make the
double bill of tonight a memorable one
in this week of opera.
Despite the cold weather last night,

Trans-Mississippi Congress
Develops Into a Free
Coinage Gathering.
Ex-Gov. Prince and Others
M&ke Eloquent Pleas lor
White Metal.
There Promises to Be a Lively
Time Over Adoption of
St. Louis, Nov. 27.—The develop
ments of the second day's session for
the Trans-Mississippi congress have
not been without interest tor the advo
cates of the free coinage of silver who
have been anxious to secure definite
expression from the congress in favor
of the white metal.
Not alone have minor features, such
as warn applause when free coinage
was mentioned, been encouraging, but
the organization of the committee on
resolutions,.with Congressman W. J.
Bryan, of Nebraska, as chairman, and
R. A. Marshall, ot Texas, as secretary,
tias been highly delighting. Neverthe
less, there is as yet no certainty that
the matter writ go beyond this. In the
convention there is a strong element in
favor of international free coinage only,
and another opposed to any expression
whatever upon the subject by tho con
tress. Whether the bimetallists will
be strong enough to overcome boih
these elements cannot be told. Vet
there is a ceitainty that
Tli.' Wain Btrauc*e
will be upon this portion of the resolu
tion committee's report, and the battle
will not be of brief duration.
At the opening ot the afternoon,
which was delayed until nearly :5
o'clock, there being nothing before the
convention having special precedence,
Coßjrresss&an-eiect J. S. Shaffreth, ot
Colorado, was invited to address the
delegates on the silver question. At
the close of Mr. Shaffroth's remarks a
new series of resolutions were intro
duced and referred to the committee on
resolutions without debate. Among
them were these: By the Seattle Cham
ber of Commerce, opposing the adoption
by the congress of any resolutions de
manding the free coinage of silver; fav
oring the early construction of the Nica
ragua canal; opposing the so-called Ol
ney plan with teijard to the Pacilic rail
road debts, and favoring the foreclosure
of the government mortgage, with the
restoration to the people of the granted
lands; favoring the taking away from
coiiifiess the coinage power, and its re
turn to the people under tho system of
initiative and referendum; favoring
the withdrawal of all existing circu
lating mediums and the substitution
therefor of an isue of full legal tender
treasury notes to the extent of 150 per
capita;favorin«jthe creation of a cabinet
office to be known as the department
of trade, and commerce, and numerous
others ot a minor character.
The hour of 4 o'clock having arrived
the special order took precedence and
the discussion of the reinonetizaiion of
silver was opened by ex-<Jov. Prince, of
New Mexico. Upon the principle that
all structures must first have a founda
tion, the governor stated that he would
copfine himself to statements of facts,
leaving the superstructure of argument
to those to follow him. He then trave a
r«view of existing conditions. He
charged that the eastern section of the
Unites! States was opposed to bimetal
lism not from principle but from abso^
lute ignorance oi' the subject. Yet he
did not mean by this to charge con
•cious wickedness. The West, by rea
son or its intimate association with the
need of a greater suuply of money, was
better informed, while iv the East only
the banking element was acquainted
with the issue, aud they from selfish In
terests advocated gold monometallism,
ruining to the demonetization act of
ISTo, passed, as he asserted.
By Secret Fraud,
and which no member of congress had
ever acknowledged having voted for
with the knowledge that it did demone
tize silver, he said all the silver men
asked was the repeal of that law, which
no man, acknowledged' paternity for,
and whish every man in public life then
or now declared a child of stealth. The
demand would be the same were there
not a single ounce of silver produced in
America. It was th« need or a circulat
ing medium. Take, for instance, the
wheat crop. The decline in the pi ice
per bushel had bean from £1.19 to about
50 cents, or a net less to the farmer at
present of $250,003,000 per year. Or.
taking the average acreage value of
wheat, corn, oats, hay and cotton. The
decline since the demonetization of sil
ver had been from ft 15.65 to $8.15, or 48
cent. Taking the bimetallic prices
of 1873 as a basis, the gain, by a restora
tion of silver, to agriculturists would be
1,500,000,000 annually. Tnis in the
face of the tact that the decline of sil
ver made a net loss of £32,000,000 an
nually to the miners, proved that the
issue was not local to the mining inter
ests. Indeed, the decline in prices was
not a decline of values, but an apprecia
tion of purchasing power, and what
more could be said in favor of an in
crease in the medium of exchange,
especially when we see countless thou
sands suffering from the existing state
of affairs. An easy wav to look at the
matter, he said, was to take, for in
stance, a farmer's mortgage. Let it
have been made when wheat was at
$1.19; then 100 bushels would have paid
1119 of debts. Mow it requires 240
approximately. Continuing with an
argument from this standpoint in favor
of a stable value in the dollar, in con
cluding the governor charge*! that the
demonetization of silver by the in
creased value of a dollar effected an
impairment of the obligation of con
tract'?. Such, the governor said, are
some of the facts in this case plainly
1 lie Need of tlio JBonr
is such an awakening of interest in this
question In the East as will cause in
quiry and Investigation and independ
ence of thought.
.. Wo are one nation, our interests are
identical: that which affects one section
aflects all, and in this matter the con
ditions ire practically the same East
and West, North and South. The ideas
studiously i(inoculated in the East that
this is a Western matter, and one in
which the silver-producing states are
principally interested, is utterly de
ceptive, as I have endeavored to show.
The farmer of New York or Ohio is in
terested precisely as his brother in lowa
or Kansas. '1 he man who owes a mort
gage in Massachusetts feels the increas
ing? pressure of the obligation asslrongly
as his fellow debtor of Missouri or Da
kota. The increasing number of fore"
closures, the lengthened list of sales for
unpaid taxes, the armies of the under
paid and unemployed, the same story
On" theory it was easy to say what the
results of demonetization must be; act
tual experience is showing what fifey
are. A steady decrease in all p/»p<'rty
values and a steady increase in the bur
den of all fixed charges can bring this
but one result. The cry of the fieri ti<
goes up to lieaTen. The n»08t despr.ir
ing and the most touching of their
prayers are never heard on earth, for
they come from those who suffer in
silence. The aggregate of human mis
ery caused by this grinding of the up«
per anil nether millstones Is a tiling to
make angels weep. [ . . ', .

food is taken from the mouths of the
weak ami defenseless.
No judgment from on hitrh has been
visited upon this people; neither war
uor famine nor pestilence have been
suffered to alttiet us.
Vet, iti thu midst of physical health

Judge Dallas then takes up the
Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, and
says: "Thereat question, however, is
not whether the Brotherhood ot Rail
way Trainmen is. or is not, inimical to
the general welfare, but whether these
receivers should be oideted to retain Its
members in their service, despite the
company's pro-existing rule to tjie, con
trary, and against their own unanimous
judgment. If such an order ought to be
made, it must be because the action to
be restrained would injuriously affect
the interests the receivers have in
charge, or would be contrary to law, or
unjust to those immediately concerned.
It there is any other consideration upon
which the direction asked for could be
based, counsel have not suggested it,
nor do 1 perceive it.
"That the contemplated action is not
unlawful is too plain for argument.
That it contravenes public policy is as
serted. But how can this be established?
L know of no means of ascertaining tho
policy of the public in relation to per
sonal rights but by consulting the pub
lic laws. This particular association is
not a corporation; but if it was it would
not follow, as seems to be supposed, that
it would rightfully insist upon the re
tention of its members in the service of
another corporation against its will."
Judge Dallas concludes as follows:
•'The rule complained of by the ' peti
tioners was promulgated as long ago as
the year 18S7. and the receivers em
pathatically assert their belief, which is
not controverted, that no employe has
since entered the service in ignorance
of its existence or joined the Brother
hood of Railway Trainmen without be^
ing aware that by so doing he violated
; it. It is possible there may ba a few
men—there cannot be many—to whom
the strict enforcement of the rule would
occasion some hardship. But no such
case has been made known and the
answer of the receivers displays no
! vindictive feeling or disposition to
harshness, i have no hesitation in
relying upon them to deal fairly and
discriminatingly with any case which
may reasonably call for peculiar con
Loss of $25,000 on Pattern Sh ps
—Otiioia!» Charge Incendiarism.
CinrAc;o,Nov. 27.—The pattern shops
of the Pullman Palace Car company,
situated at One Hundred and Fourth
street and Eric-son avenue, were de
stroyed by tire tonight, entailing a loss
of $25,000, of which 117,090 was on the
patterns aud t'B,ooo on the building.-
Some of the minor officials of the com
pany are inclined to consider the (ire as
incendiary, although they have discov
ered no tangible evidence to support
the theory. Twice last week cars stand
ing near the shop were discovered to be
on lire, without apparent cause, and the
Pullman people are inclined to believe
that all ot the fires were incendiary.
He Ilefuses to Discuss Judse Dal-
las' Decision.
Washington, Nov. 27.—Attorney
Gfc >eral Olney was unwilling to express
any opinion in regard to Judge Dallas'
decision in the case ot the railway
trainmen and the receivers of the Read
ing company tonight, as he has not seen
the text of the opinion. In his argu
ment Mr. Olney onh discussed the gen
eral proposition that the receivers had
no right to dismiss men simply because
they joined a union.
The question of an antecedent con
tract made with the company by the in
dividual men, who thereby aureeu not
to join, was not touched upon by the at
torney general.

Wife of tha Aged Ex-Chan-
celior Called to the High
er World.
It Is Gravely Feared His Loss
May Prove a Fatal
Berlin, Nov. 27.— Princess Bismarck,
the wife of -Prince Bismarck, died at
Varzin at 5 o'clock this morning.
The condition of the princess be
came alarming yesterday. It was
then announced that the princess
had suffered a relapse, and that great
anxiety was felt regarding her condi
tion by the prince and her attendants.
All the family were hastily summoned
to her bedside. Count Herbert Bis
marck arrived yesterday evening, and
was present when his mother passed
Although it is feared that the effect
of his wife's death upon the prince will
be serious, it is satisfactory to add that
the Krear chancellor has been in better
health lately, and that he has beeu able
to resume his daily drives.
Princess Bismarck has for years been
suffering with bronchitis and gastric
catarrh. Eighteen months ago she was
found lying in a pool of blood at the
foot of her bed. Tbese fainting
attacks were repealed from time
to time. The immediate cause of her
death was dropsy, complicated with
other disease. The disease rapidly be
came worse during the last few days.
The princess was cheerful to the
end. She tried to deceive her
husband as to her real condi
tion. She spent much of her time
out of bed. Drs. SchweniiiKer and
Curysander regarded her case as hope
less a month ago, but concealed the
truth from Princ« Bismarck. When
recently the wife of the prince's valet
fell so seriously ill, Prince Bismarck
said to him:
"Dear triend, 1 sincerely sympathize
with you in your Brief for, alas, 1 am in
the same terrible position an yourself.
Every one is departing from us."
Dr. Schweninger has been here since
Friday, but lie was unable to do any
thing beyond attending to the comfort
of the dying princess.
The prince Is quite overcome by the
death of his wife. He had watched by
her bedside until this morning. Shortly
before 6 o'clock Dr. Sen wetiiojcer gently
broke the news to Prince Bismarck,who
rose immediately and remained silent
tor some time at the death bed. At the
death scene there were present Dr.
Schweninger, Chr.\sander, Countess
Raafkau and Prince Bismarck's niece.
Early this morning the prince's head
forester and his neighbors called to
offer their condolences. The prince
asKed their indulgence, saying that he
was unequal to seeing visitors, lie
only received Pastor Schumann, from
\Y essow.
Prince Bismarck personally commun
icated the news of the death of the
princess to the emperor and empress,
who immediately sent a long telegram
of condolence. Among the others who
have already sent messages of sym
pathy and regret are the king of Wur
temburg, Chancellor yon Ilohenlohe
and the ministers and secretaries of
In after years, when they have grown
gray in the service of the Democracy,
Tierce Butler's twins will have cause to
look bacK wltli pride to the day of their
christening and remember that they
were attended by Tom Mullaoe, secre
tary of the Democratic state committee,
and Jimmy Healey, secretary of the
county committee.
The man who committed suicide in
■Smith park had an eye for solitude and
dreariness. He was the first person
see-i there since the Hill celebration.
For absent-mindedness and eccentric
ity Jones is supreme. He telephoned
for Dr. Kelly the other night to attend
a friend of his. leaving word for the
doctor to call as soon as he returned
home. An hour later he 'phoned again.
"Has the doctor been in." he asked.
".Not yet, M was the answer.
"Will you please tell him not to call
to see Smith, as he is belter."
An hour later Jones 'phoned again.
"Did you itell the doctor not to cull?"
"No," was tru: reply; "i didn't say
anything, one way or the other, to the
"Wuj? #>
"Well, as long as you didn't want
him. what's the use?''
"Simply that I don't want him to come
tramping ail the way down here tonight
for notinnv."
And Jones couldn't understand why
the lady laughed.
This reminds me of "Old Comanche"
Frank Thayer. the traveling man, who,
when he reached Duluth from Ifar
quette, discovered ho had left his cane
at Marquette. Sitting down he wrote
to the Michigan landlord: "Please look
in Hoom HS and see if my cane is
there." While writing, his friend found
tli«« cane behind his trunks and ex
claimed, "Why Here's your stick.';
Thereupon 1 haver added a poslcnpt to
the letter saying: "You needn't look
tor the cue. I have just found it."
"Why, what in thunder do you mean
by writing that?" asked his friend in
"Do you think," saui I'hayer. "that I
want the landlord bunting all over the
hotel for that cue."
"It" there had been any chance for the
election of a second lulled States sena
tor from St. Pao| t " said a Republican
politician yesterday, "you can make up
youi mind that 'Bill' Merrian would
have been the man. but he realized that
the Capita) City could not have both
senators, so he is waiting for Cush
Davis to step out. So all this talk
about Rogers el al., ofSt. Paul, is rot
pure and simple."
No one can say that Mayor Smith is
not a man of the people, for yesterday
afternoon he released his official dignity
Ion? tnoush to listen to a jagged Irish
man named Gllhooley, who declared:
'T>e all th* powers, OPII hey pashed a
bill makiii' it a pei'-ual-ty for army onu
comin' in th' mayor's office wid beta
bonnet on, an' also a bill declaiiu" th'
RepooDlican party iilaya;al."
Dispatch of yesterday—"Today we
are enjoying the acme of Indian sum-
■!•.■' And the mercury hovered
>i! us) .'.■;o all day.
"You Pay Your Honey
And Take Your Choice."
That's what you have to do in buying Furs
or Cloaks, and really it seems to us that it's
quite a difficult matter. In reading the different
Cloak "ads" we note that each house claims to
sell for $12.50 or $15.00 what the other fellow
asks gitt.oo tor. Each house claims the "best
stock, "the "lowest prices, "etc. Now, we hardly
know what to say to you today. We will try
and state plain facts and advise you to look
around before you buy and judge for yourselves
whose stock is the nearest as advertised. That's
what we do (when we buy ai wholesale). Now,
first, we will say a few words about
Cloth Cloaks and
Suits, Waists
and Skirts.
We have many new things coming- daily
and full assortment of the numbers that have
sold well before. We certainly have some very
swell Silk and Cashmere Waists at prices
from $2. 50 to $10.00. We think we can please
you in a Waist. This is true, too, of our line of
the celebrated B. V. D. Skirts at $1.00 to
$10.00. As to our stock of Ladies' and Chil=
dren's Cloaks, we have every reason to feel
that they are right in style, quality and price,
as our sales have been many times larger than
we had hoped for. We haven't any Cloaks for
$18.00 that other reliable houses ask $24.00 for,
but we have the best value for money at all
prices from $5.00 to $75.00 that an experienced
buyer, with ample capital back of him, could
get in the market, and we have marked them at
very close prices. It isn't much use to quote
prices in the paper, as one must see an article
to know whether it's cheap or not. As to our
Fine Fur
We think we have one fact firmly estab
lished in the public mind, and that is that Ran
som & Horton's Furs are beyond question the
best in either city, and if people only knew that
they could get our furs as cheap as those of
other dealers, we would wonderfully increase
our trade. . It is the custom of all dealers in the
two cities to fire at Ransom & Morton and try
to make purchasers think we are high-priced.
People are finding- out fast this season that this
is false. We have made hundreds of new cus
tomers, and it is generally admitted now that
our goods are as low in price as anybody's and
far ahead in quality and style. Right here we
want to state: We will refund money cheer=
fully at any time if duplicates of our furs
can be bought elsewhere at less money.
We are particularly well fixed now on Fur
Capes for Winter.' These are in all materials
arid 33 to 36 inches long. We have just finished
a new lot of Electric Seal with Persian Lamb
\ okes and Collars. These arc particularly
handsome, with very extra "sweeps." We also
have a new lot of the Cub Bear=Trimmed
Electrics. This has been the swell Wrap of
the season. You will find novelties in our stock
shown nowhere else. You will also find staple
articles at low prices. Electric Capes at <2^.00,
$35.00, $40.00, $50.00 to $75.00. Perhaps you
want an Otter Jacket. Well, we have now
about fifty to select from. Prices, $125.00 to
$175.00. Perhaps you have in your mind a Mink
Sacque. We have thirty—all dark and rich
colors, with tail borders. Prices, $150.00 to
$185.00 (40 to 44-inch).
This is a season when those who wait for
"after Xmas Sales' will be likely to find very
poor stocks to pick from. Stocks of desirable
goods are very light, and, in (act. it's rather
hard work in many lines to supply the demand
now. We would advise the purchase of your
Furs during the next two weeks. By the way.
don't forget that "Seal Sale" of 'ours. We
have sold a little over half our stock, yet still
have some elegant garments which you can own
at net cash cost to us.
