NO linen selling at this store has
equalled that of this January Sale.
The unusual variety, the rich, heavy
qualities, the beauty of pattern and fin
ish, and the very low prices have proven
irresistible magnets. It is wisdom to buy
linens now for the future. You can buy
table damasks every day for $1, 75c, or
50c, but riot such as these. Napkins sell
every day at $5 to $1 dozen, but not
these qualities. Towels, crashes, etc.,
sell all the time, but not quite such val
ues for the money. The care and patience
of last year's buying of linens culminates
in this sale.
In addition to the many values pre
viously advertised, we place on sale
