Everybody Welcome, The beautiful new salesroom directly over the north store, newly furnished throughout, is now the home of the "READY TO WEAR" department, and next Monday will also occur the Opening Display and Sale of the New Spring Costumes for Women. That this showing will be a masterly expression of the foreign and domestic dress idea for the Spring and Summer of J 905 goes without saying. Lovers of Spring gown beauty will admire this collection of magnificent garments: Smart Tailored Walking Suits, Beautiful Shirt Waist Suits, Stylish Spring Coats, Handsome Walking Skirts, &nirt Waists, Washable Shirt Waist Suits, and a new feature in this department A Complete of Infants' and Children's Coats and Dresses. The "Ready to Wear" section is indeed a store in itself, filled to overflowing with every essential style of Women's and Children's Garments. A MODERN STORE Modernizing a store aud making new places for different stocks in terrupts the usual flow of business. After weeks of remodeling our business plant everything is ready and we celebrate the Opening of our enlarged store next Monday. The SUIT and COAT DEPARTMENT, opened the 12th of September last, was an instant success and has been rapidly outgrowing the quarters it occupied. More room was needed to carry the larger stock necessary for the fast increasing business and weNvere fortunate in securing the floor directly above the north store. This store is as large as our original store and admirably lighted by eleven large windows. A flight of wide easy stairs from the centre of the main store makes the section easily accessible. We believe it to be an ideal place for the sale of garments and for its size, as attractive as any of its kind in New England. The "Daylight" Basement formerly occupied by the Suits and Coats is given over to two departments which have been greatly enlarged the "Muslin Underwear" and "House Furnishing Goods." Taking advantage of modern inventions in time-saving appliances, we have installed a Lamson-Cable Cash Carrier system which runs to every floor in the store. And now, being splendidly ready, we usher in the spring season, with a modern large store, completely tilled with bright new merchandise.
