Great Consignment Sale of
On account of the pending hard times and the tightness of
the money market several large San Francisco clothing firms
have consigned to us an immense stock of Men's, Boys' and
Children's Clothing, which must be turned into money at once.
In order to accomplish this we have decided to reserve nothing,
but have marked every garment in the lot in plain figures at
prices that will certainly move them. - '
The Sale of these Goods will commence
j SATURDAY, MARCH 4th
