Our January Sale of
Ladies' Muslin Underwear
Is distiuguished principally by excellence of quality
at moderate cost. The market is full of lower priced
goods thau we quote today, and we have some of
them if you want underwear of that hind. Our aim
however, is to raise these semi-annual sales of La
dies' Musliu Underwear to exactly the same level as
our oilier feature sales, and so induce ladies to look
forward to them as the only two occasions in the
yc.tr when they can positively depend on getting the
b?u'c underwear procurable, at a substantial reduction
frain regular price;.
That Is the Haiti Advantage
offered in ihis sale. Does it appeal to you ?
