An Elystem H AASA n b7 Cmi :stmas Choosers The choosing; of Christmas gifts is December's ' most important occupation. It can hardly be begun too early; for there is a world of satisfaction in making your selections well in advance of Yuletide and thereby being enabled to look on at all the rervous flutter and bustle of the last two weeks before Christmas with the serene consciousness that your Christmas preparations are all completed. Barr's is this season an elysium for Christmas choosers, or, at least, for those Christmas choosers who are looking, not for penny presents, but for something especially nice. The attractiveness and fascination" of fine Silverware and Cut Glass and articles of personal Jewelry is undeniable. Any gift chosen from our stock is likely to prove a lifelong plea use to its recipient. And we have never shown at any pre vious Christmas anything like so fine a show of beautiful wares as just now deck our cases, It would be a sad mis rake if you made out your list of Christmas gifts without first visiting the Barr Store.
