The friend replied: "Sorry I can't help, but if you xre in a hole that you can't

" i "utters went into market last season and bought for our present sized huild
i . present facilities for selling. 'For months we were -delayed and stocks piled
i . ; ;i ,ter than they shoaid for inexae should be gaoged but outlet that is this

New Year's Millinery at Half
DAYLIGHT SALONS SECOND FLOOR ANNEX.
This is a "Different" Millinery Store. The average mil
liner is content at this season to sit down and growl or gloat
over the past season and dream of a future one. This milli
nery store has no " seasons" it's an all-year-'round shop,
where dressy women folk may come any time of the year and
select from full stocks, but generally at very special reduced
prices. The very fact of keeping up millinery stocks brings
buyers to the store that might otherwise drift elsewhere,
was there anything to attract; and a steady stream of buy
ers allows us to huy liberally in market when the market is
glad to sell without profit, sometimes at a loss, rather th?m
close their workrooms. We have our full regular force of
salespeople employed and our workrooms running under full
completcment, hringing forth new creations daily. These we produce under con
ditions allowing us to sell them Avithout loss at one-.half regular prices. This week
we offer an entire new showing of advance 1905 models in velvet turbans, with fancy
chenille bands, some with feather bands. Also several models of the popular "Char
lott Corday" hats introduced by us "some three weeks ago to Portland folk. In
every instance the price is just ONE-HALF the regular price.
In order to effect complete and drastic clearance on all other trimmed hats we
offer, special for Tuetlsay, a large lot of splendid ?4.00, S5.00 AND ?6.00 VALUES
AT A CHOICE FOR $1.00.
