Our Inventory Sale is now going on. Furniture Shoppers, this is your opportunity to save money at our expense. The gen eral depression in business left our big store crowded to the roof with new and artistic furniture. Contemplating our usual win ter business, we contracted for more goods than we are able to take care of at the present on account, of our overstocked condition. This simply m?ns that we must dispose of the stock now on band to make room for the goods now enroute, otherwise we would be obliged to hire store houses at enormous rents. Rather than have this evtra expense and pay this excessive rent, we give the public this opportunity to save a dollar instead of ns paying it to landlords. Our advice to you is to look every where and then look here. You will then be honestly convinced that we produce the farts as represented. It is no trouble to show goods, whether you purchase or not.
