Portland's Home of Fashion in Apparel
GRAND SALONS SECOND FLOOR. '
The accompanying reproduction of an unsolicited letter, received yesterday from Miss Cathrine
Countiss, tells its own story. A store from the feather-weight class of "has-beens" is making much ado
over the fact of having sold Miss Countiss a beautiful gown good ! The gown is a beauty AND A GREAT
BARGAIN. We congratulate the said store on having been able to obtain a gown from Paris fit for Miss
Countiss to wear, after trying so hard for four years. This affords a splendid illustration of the com
parative facilities of two stores. "We can't stop to enumerate the number of magnificent gowns, wraps, cos
tumes, hats, etc we've sold Miss Countiss in that time, with the most cordial relations existing between that
talented woman and this store. She has ever recognized the superior powers of production possessed by this
store, even by sending to us for her costumes when in the East, where the best was at hand. In our larger
success made sure and available by intelligent effort and perfect service, we can afford to congratulate a
minor concern that does one single, lonesome achievement in four years that is creditable. "We offer the
largest and fine3t assortment of gowns, costumes and theater wraps in all the "West, and at the lowest prices
quoted in America. "Why not select one for Christmas? The beautiful ballroom gown i-orr. in the fourth
act by Miss Countiss in "CamiHe" this w,eek was made under our direction and sold to Miss Countiss by nsj
also all but one worn by her in the piece.
