Today's 37th "FRIDAY ECONOMY SALE" A Topliner On this Week's Clearance Bill!
Today's "bargain events "will "be of ertremest importance to all who are following the Clearance Sales and benefiting from their saving opportunities. Below we print a list of matchless values, which, added to hose of the week, in full force today,

unprecedented bargain feast. We expect to be taxed to the utmost, and would advise morning shopping where possible. A million-dollar stock has been ravaged and despoiled of its choicest values for your delectation. If you're interested in securing a
mighty lot of this world's best goods for a trifling fraction of their real worth in the cash of the realm, you'll be here today or send for your share of these Clearance Sale "plums."
