EXPONENTS OP QUALITY IN MERCHANDISE. Quality: "A grace which no amount of artifice can ever hope to produce." Stedman.
It was -with a feeling akin ip pity that the Trriter read the plain
tive wail of a competing store in yesterday's Oregonian, bemoan
ing the fact that so few people read their ads. This store has no
such, fault to fin&.for RESULTS prove our ads, are read from
the Atlantic to the Pacific. Last Week we had an inquiry emanat
ing from pnepf, some two weeks ago, sent by a firm in BATH, ME.,
inquiring for goods advertised which, by the way, are made here
in PORTLA23I), OR. The letter js on file at this office. In last
week's call for a name for the new public thoroughfare running
through this store, connecting Fifth with Sixth streets (between
Washington and Alder), over 2000 responses were received, some
from points distant to Montana and Wyoming, Washington,
Idaho and Southern California. More gratifying, however, were
the hundreds upon hundreds from home-f oik that not only read
our store news daily, but are numbered among the hundreds of
thousands who do not stand aloof and "LOOK" at US, but come
in daily and greet us as old-time friends and, TRUSTED neigh
bors. TBUTHS presented in attractive form, backed by RELIA
BILITY, always attract, and GOOD STOREKEEPIETG- holds,
the mighty shopping hosts of Portland to her BEST AKD
LARGEST STORE. Today's mentions, added to yesterday's,

Real Bargains That Add to Thanksgiving Joys
Comparisons are urged J. F. Clarke, the eminent writer, says in "Self Culture"; "The power of comparison gives
definiteness and clearness to thought; we never can understand well but by comparing it with something else." We want
the women of Portland to compare the exquisite creations in the women's-wear sections, garments selected by an expert woman
designer and buyer, who spends five months of "the year with New York's leading modistes, and the other seven here at home
keeping in touch with the wants of our clientele, with the products of New York's squalid tenement-house rooms mere imita
tions and bad at that, of the high-class garments shown here as exploited by other houses who are now frantically trying to
unload their debris upon a wise public Stores that send men East with memorandums to fill, running from a barrel of
lard to a finer evening gown can hardly expect to compete with a chain of specialty stores of the Olds, Wortman & King
character. A woman can best buy for women's needs and women know it. The high-grade garments sold here at lower prices
than inferior stuff of questionable style is offered elsewhere prove it.
