A SoP aistl Warm Bed
ip n, rare treat to our care-worn
' o.ly. A good bed may help us
over a bad cold quick and bo1
extend our life. You owe H to
yourself and family to pay a
1 ittlo attention to this important
fa ct. Our heavy blankets for $2
a piece would make a suitable
Ch ristmas present. A large rug,
2 x5 feet, in front of the bed, is
a good match. You will do well'
to inspect our mammoth stock
complete in all lines we carry.
A sign of the New Year is
the advantage it gives in
photographs. A sign of the
old year is the excellence
of the things accomplished.
We eive you memory of
. passing time in pleasing
photographs. We give you
hopes foi future enjoyment
in having the best photos
of present features.

But how low can we ma&e the price, is the
question we ask ourselves when marking our
goods for sale. That's what makes ours an
ever-panding business, it's a potent advertiser;
it tells the story through the purse in thousands
of homes, only to be retold in countless others
by appreciative money savers.
