We should put the best interpretation en
whatever we hear concerning- our fellow-men and
keep siJence at least until the information given
us is reliably confirmed.
It would be well worth while winning- such a
record as that of Rudelph Stewart Walten, one of
the founders of the Wanamaker Schools of
Industry, who was well known te have never
spoken ill of any of his fellows.
The least thing we can de for each ether is te
net hurt, if net willing te help.

Twe events of such magnitude and such incomparable opportunities that each year
their call is heard throughout the fashion world.

1 HERE never has been such a year as
1 . a a , a .
lyzd neither has there ever been
such a white sale.
It's a sale for all tastes, all means.
It can dress te perfection the
woman of fashion and luxury, who wears noth
ing but supple silk next te her fair skin, and it
can serve equally well the busy little housewife
who does her own work, even te the washing1.
Fer the bride and the college girl, for the
business woman who practices her efficiency in
shopping, in fact, for every type of woman
that could be named (and nearly every woman
is a type in herself) it is an opportunity net te
be repeated here within six months, and net te
be matched anywhere else.
Fer the woman devoted te sports and out
door life, it brings everything she can need.
Fer the mother who wishes te clothe her
little fleck economically without descending te
"cheap" trash, it is a bonanza.

Everything in the Sale, from a
snowy white shirtwaist te an ex

Here is the outstanding serv
ice and originality of this White
Sale that was first in the field
with the idea; it always was, and

is white or a child's dainty gingham
frock is colorless, but the whole col
lection is fresh as new-fallen snow.
Nothing here that ever saw a
iWanama'ker counter or shelf be

false cut of the shears, an imperfect
shape or a "skimpy" proportion.
The only "seconds" in the Sale are
some of the famous C. B. corsets
at 65c (cut, all rjght, but showing
