coats at '$6, $8, 10, 12, 15 and 18. These are greater bargains than you can possibly imagine,

ble at any other store in town, at prices ranging from 10 to 25, "Auction," "Below Cost," "Sacri
fice," "Bankrupt" Sales notwithstanding.
Parents, you can't save from $1 to 5 easier than by posting yourselves up in the prices we name
and the values we offer in Boys' and Children's Suits and Overcoats, of which we have thousands in
every style, color and sliade. You'll find extra and special values this Thanksgiving week in Little
Boys' Suits at $3, $3 50, $4, $5 and $6; in Little Boys' Overcoats at $2 50, 3, 3 50, $4 and 5; in

make a tour of inspection and they'd quickly find out how vastly superior and cheaper our Clothing
for Boys is to what is offered by other houses.
