One week of this Special Sale of Three Hundred Pieces of
Furniture has gone. About one-half of the pieces has been sold
at very low prices; so low, in fact, that we have lost money on
many of the transactions. We are willing to take this loss in order
to clean up and reduce our stock so that some alterations in our
store can be made without delay.
We are still putting special emphasis on Dining Room Furni
ture. This lasts until next Wednesday. If there is anything in
that line that you need now, or will need in the near future,,
come in and place your bid.
