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.
