Annual Sale of Fine Furs
Cur comprehensive fur exhibition, starting Saturday, Aug. 17, will arouse the keenest inter
est among women who appreciate individuality in furs as well as in dress. Quality is the
keynote of this showing and extends from the highest grade of garments to the most expen
sive furs. No garments admitted into our fur section without first having passed the most
rigid inspection as to workmanship and quality. You have Young & McCombs' guarantee
back of each fur for its absolute dependability. Small deposits taken and goods laid away
until wanted. Owing to the great New York fur strike which is now on and the big advance
which is bound to take place on all re-orders, we are in a position to save you from 20 to 33 1-3
per cent on your immediate purchases. Sale Commences Saturday, August 17
and Individual Pieces
Character and individuality are the distinctive
notes of the luxurious fur sets of natural Mink.
The matchless color and wearing qualities
make this fur a decided favorite. Our present
showing is most attractive and includes many
rare pieces, priced from $25 to $225. Here,
too, are fine Jap Minks, Australian Opossum,
Eed Fox, Mole, Hudson Seal, rich glossy Lynx,
etc. Stunning Jap Mink sets and individual pieces, pric
ed from $5 to $30 to take the place of Eastern Mink will
appeal to the moderate price buyer who is not in the
financial circumstances to indulge in the more expensive
minks. A look will convince you of the very low prices and the advisa
bility of taking advantage of this August fur sale.

The real earthly Armageddon to
whkh St. John referred, bible scholars
are agreed, was the plain of Esdraelon
in Palestine. It was a historic battle

been fought there. It may well have
been on the plain of Esdraelon, or
Armageddon, that "the Assyrians came
