And we know that they are mort than pleased with our holiday of
ferings, for they do not hesitate to say so.
Our Line of Bric-a-Brac
Still stonds the strain of heavy buying well, but ifiyou want the
benefit of nn unbroken assortment we would suggest the ndvis
ability of calling today. The phrase Bric-a-Brac is comprehensive,
but not too much so for the line of beautiful goods it covers here.
We have not spoken
of the Beauties
of our Dolls so far this year. But you can guess what they are like,
when we tell you that they are being carried awny by the hundreds
every day. We've no trashy dolls. Prices begin at 25c. and rise
to S5.00 by little steps which leaves the fixing of the figure at prac
tically what you have a mind to pay.
A fresh delivery came to hand yesterday, and another lot is in
voiced for to come to hand today. These late arrivals have taken
on special prices because of their slowness in getting here, But
they're just as handsome as any wo had in stock before they came,
See them for both ladles and gentlemen. Many of the handles are
works of art.
These, too, are late comers. Tabourettes aie in solid oak and cher
ry, and are marked down because they are two weeks behind time
in getting hete. Same remarks apply to the Chautauqua Black
'' boards. Only five days to sell the lot in now, and you know what
i ; that means.
