What Shall Your Christmas Gift Be?
TO HIM TO HERTO THEM
Something that will outlive the day and the season; something useful; something beautiful.
What e!se,indeed, but something from the Roseburg Book Store the store that is ready for any test
, that yon may give it the store that offers you a variety of Holiday Gifts, the equal of which cannot be
found anywhere in Roseburg? A visit to this store means a correct solving of the eift nrohlem.
Hundreds of excellent presents are displayed in every department hints for all people, at all prices,
from a trifle, upwards to the highest figure you may care te expend. Every help we can give you, w
offer heartily and cheerfully come early while the stock is fresh and unbroken. A few suggestions:
WRITING PAPER specially boxed for gifts. Can you think of a more acceptable Christmas gift
-than a box of really fine writing paper? Writing paper is something one uses constantly and one is
' therefore constantly reminded of the giver. The prices range from 25 cents up.
