of Chinaware are broken in a year, we
wonder. Surely the number must be
amazing possibly millions. It Is because of
this that we carry 23 patterns of beautiful
China in "open" stock. There Is an ample
opportunity for choice selection and we can
always replace any pieces broken, in sets
purchased of us. This is a great benefit Do
not fail to Investigate. Extra special
prices given elsewhere that aim to amaxa.
The new Furniture de
partment is doing so ex
ceedingly well that we are
daily amazed at its suc
cess. And, then, since the
recent "openine;," more patron
age ban come to ue, day by day,
until we now believe this new
department is out-selling the old
established firms of the sur
rounding cities. People seem
ed to be waiting for a chance to
buy Furniture of assured qual
ity, in other words, superior
Kurnlture measuring up to our
standard of quality first. After
they came In to look, our re
markably low prices seemed to
do the rest completely, for
iiio8t virttors have remained to
b'l.v. The manufacturers of
Kme of the very best Furniture
have wanted us to put in Fur
niture for years. They offered
um Fp"clal inducements In prices
to start us off. Finally tne

we purchased our initial orders
at umazed Mr. Molcomhn, our
Furniture manager. He had not
known prices near them when
rnnrected with the largest Fur
niture stores in the west We
will Jove the Iwnoflt of these
lew prices to the public, we im
mediately decided. That is why
in open competition we have so
far carried off each order to
fiimlch homes, lodge rooms, etc.
Our prices cannot be equaled un
der ordinary circumstances
there are many instances of
where our selling price is low

and unobtrusive, one who, we think, comes nearer to the ideal than
almost any other in fiction, walka quietly through the pages of a nov
el by Charles Dickens: so auietlv that she has been almost comnlete-
ly saved from the clamor and the cheapening adoration of the world's heroine worshipers.
Not the least of her graces was her Domestic Skill and a fine facility for turning chaos into order and even beauty before
anybody around her could realize it.
The housekeeping genius, the artist in the home, would not fail to visit this store. The woman who asnires to be an ar-
tist in homemaking cannot afford to miss doing so.
NOW! Is the Time to Buy Furniture For Bedroom, Dining
Room, Living Room, Library, Hall, Den' and Porch
And bear in mind that prices are advancing, so these prices on our SUPERIOR Furniture have a double significance such values in SUPERIOR Furniture may not be possible again,
even in our best sales.
A miscellany of wonderful good bargains throughout the stocks not infrequently made possible by the prices of our expert Furniture manager secured from leading factories
who were anxious to see our store establish a Furniture department. These are the "plums" that come from shaking the tree there are other special bargains besides.
Everybody needs Furniture at some time. It is the part of wisdom to buy it now in this new SUPERIOR Furniture store where prices are much lo 'er for honest Furniture. A
