Goes to show that we have been

of so many of oar offerings has quite
naturally misled a few into the mistaken
idea that we have none bat the very
highest priced grades higher than may
be they would Dossiblv care to Dav.
Others evidently understand our position
more clearly, as lively selling in the
following goods will prove:
Three lines of Wool Dress Fabric?, all
clean, nice, bright stuffs, varyioe in
width from 32 to 64 inche?, the patterns
being in smooth mixed effects, checks,
broken checks, stripes, mixtures and the
Scotchy looking designs, far 25, 39 and
50 cents a yard.
The most of them are Btrictly all
wool, although some of the others from
the nature of the weave have a little
cotton mingled in their make-up.
Then we also have a line of plain
every day Storm Serge Diagonals, 7
colors and a black, that we are putting
