Comes from our Cloak Department today. The year
is dying, and with the advent of the New Year comes
stock taking. We believe in taking an inventory in
a business-like way, and would never dreain of in
ventorying a fashionable stock of Ladies' Jackets
Coats, Newmarkets, etc.. at anything like cost, for
we know very well that if we have to carry any of
them over for another year, they won't be worth cost
to us or anything like it. This fact explains the
Deep Price Cutting Which
Goes Into Effect This Morning
And will continue for ten
of winter is yet to come,
With the Smartest 271 n. Jackets
And the Newest 42In. Coats
At such reductions as we quote below, the temptation
to buy would seem to us tobe irresistible.
A Few Price Cutting Examples
Ladies' Coats That Sold for $7,50 are now $4.98
Ladies' Coats That Sold for $9.00 are now 5.98
Ladies' Coats That Sold for $10,09 are now 6.98
Ladies' Coats That Sold for $12,00 are now 7.98
Ladies' Coats That Sold for $15,00 are now 9.98
Ladies' Coats That Sold for $18 to $22,50 are now 12.50
Remember, there is not one last season's garment
in all the hundreds of handsome garments, and the
wealth of selection is uulimited. These quotations
refer to half and three-quarter length coats, but

Have got a similar price cut on them, wuile Chil
