Clearance Sale of
Price cut Averages
Such price reducing is nothing short of wonderful is it? Beyond
that its unprecedented and unmatchable, considering the season. It
encourages immediate buying as no suit offerings ever did.
"Encourages" we say, mora than that, it demands or compels
buying. Savings of one half on a stylish, seasonable, and needed suit
is far too unusual to resist.
No thrifty, prudent woman whose wardrobe has room for one of
these suits will attempt to resist such opportunities. And we expect
many women will take two or three or even a half a dozen.

will reinstate Bryan as the unequivocal

exported from that city in 1905-06. 6000
