SAFETY IN SHOPPING
Pur daily register of sales shows that more
pe.qpleecide day by day to do the major part
of iheic' shopping at this store; Others may be
infer-esf ed to know the reasons reasons of espe
cial importance to everybody during the crush
of Christmas shopping. This is the safest
and most comfortable store in Portland. We
have brought store service to a point nearer per
fection than eVer attained, before by a Port
land store. .Our delivery system is the most
efficient in the West. But of more vital impor
tance is THE SAJBTSTY OF SHOPPERS
ESPEOIAIiLY THE CHILDREN, during the
rush days of Holiday buying, now at hand.
During the next 23 days preceding Christmas,
patrons of this great store will fully appreciate
what our expansion has afforded them, espe
cially in Safety. The two substantial Imildings
of the store are divided by solid fire-walls. In
the event of an alarm of fire, it would be but the
work of a single instant to empty one building
into the great fireproof steel and cement Annex,
press a button and close the heavy iron fire doors
between, and the crowds could laugh at the fire
fiend while the mammoth overhead sprinklers
that work automatically, controlled by heat,
would throttle him and choke him out of exist
ence in less than three minutes. A fire could not
live in these buildings of ours long enough to
get: a-start. The three big passenger elevators
transfer 100 people every minute from fourth
floor to terra firma. Strong, wide fire-escapes
Just inspected surround the buildings on all
sides. Great stand-pipes with hose all con
nected are ready for service at a second's notice
and a well-drilled crew to man them. The entire
store is arranged to prevent congestion at any
point. We can handle the immense throngs this
year without danger, annoyance, or even dis
comfort. Aisles are broad and unclogged by
tables at points where most visitors pass, as is
the custom of some stores for sake of effect.
There's easy access and egress to every part of
the store. Remember all these things when you
are down tdwn shopping. Remember, the OH 1 1 -DREN
-JAKE SAFEST HERE.
Christmas Book Shops Open
A great chain of bookstores this year! The stocks are bigger,
better and brighter than ever before. Bocks starting: in the
Fifth-Street Annex, near neighbors to the silks, and running: along:
In a continuous' line to the main book store in "Booklovers Cor

A Christmas Collection of Unusual
and Splendid Books
Book collectors or families
accumulating a library of
their own, will be as much
Interested as those seeking
holiday gifts. It's a queer
thing about books, how one
goes and the other, some
times just as good, fallB flat.
There seems to be a sort of
Freemasonry in the way
some books get talked into
firomlnence and the "prom
