wonderful opportunity to buy a stylish Hat at a most moderate price.
Every reader of this paper

tomorrow of GREAT IN
TEREST Watch for it!
Our buyer was fortunate in getting about 60 Hats at a special reduced price.
She got the reduction because the makers were anxious to get our business and count
us as a regular customer. They gave us a chance to buy these Hats at fully half what
other milliners would have to pay for them, and we bought them.
Every Hat in this display is a chic, new style for early winter wear. Small tur-er
ban shapes and large sailor effects are in the showing. e doubt if you can iind a Hat v
similar to any one of these in the tri-cities at less than double our price. Many of
these Hats arc pattern Hats !hat means they are absolutely correct and exclusive.
