LAST WEEK TO BUY HOLIDAY GOODS
This is a week when you will have to do a lot of hard thinking.
A week of worry. Every day now that passes
without malting selections makes choosing harder.
While our trade for the past few weeks has been a record-breaker, the as
sortment has sold pretty evenly so that we enter upon the last week of our holi
day tVsinejs with a very cc replete stock. However, it is not likely this condition will last much longer, so
that it is to your interest to make your selections as soon as you can. Right here we want to tahnk our friends for
the many kind things they have said about our stock. There certainly never has been such a wide variety shown in Oregon
City before and we are very glad to have had such favorable comments regarding quantity, quality and price.
Let us again invite you to come in and look around.
It is useless to worry for a single minute about something to give to that man. If he
is a smoker, and most men are, we have just exactly what he wants. We have all the popu
lar brands of cigars in boxes of 12, 13, 25, 50 and 100. These range in prize from 90 cents
to $10. You can leave it to us and we'll guarantee quality.
' If you could see the men, as we see them, rubbering at our stock of brier wood and
meerschaum pipes you would feel perfectly safe in making him a present of one of them. We
have good pipes as low as a dollar and beautiful meerschaums at $4, $5, $6, $7.50 and 10.
We would be glad to have you take a look at them.
We have made special provision in this line for
gift purposes. In ladies umbrellas pearl and silver or
gold, smoked ivory and silver, fancy woods and silver.
All the latest designs in handles. For men we show
many swell horn and fancy wood crooks, plain and
mounted. Everybody knows the quality of our
covers the best only the kind we guarantee.
XMAS TREE DECORATIONS
Now is the time to buy tinsel, candles, etc., for the
Xmas tree. Don't wait until it is all picked over
you may just as well have the choicest, and it is a
choice assortment we have provided this year; nearly
double the. quantity we had heretofore and a dozen
new things. All prices from 5c up.
The man or woman
who gets a Water
man Fountain Pen
for a present is
booked for more
genuine comfort and
pleasure than any
other gift of equal
value could possibly MJ
pring mm. n means
yj years of satisfaction
Others as low as $ 1 .00.
What other gift, whatever
the price, is kept so long as a
book? What other gift year
after year will be found ready
to recall a pleasant thought
of the giver? Whoever has
enough good books?
