NEW SPRING SILKS
Braijd-New Arrivals From the World's Most Famous Silk Mills!
For Four Days at Clearance Prices !
Exposition of Silken Splendor Dazzling Sheen of Spring-time Beauty Magnificent Products of World's Master Weavers
Are we enthusiastic? How can we help it! My! How they glow! With all the warmth and color of joyous Springtide itself; with its bursting buds of beauteous colors, these har
bingers of glad Eastertide come to us e'en before we've donned the sackcloth of Lent. "Ahead of time?" Yes but the more fortunate for you -good folk who have silks to buy. For we've deter
mined to do the unusual again. Instead of wrapping them and hoarding them away for the new season to open, as most stores would do, we're going to add to our January silk business by offer
ing them now AT SPECIAL CLEARANCE REDUCTION! "But you'll lose that much on your April business, and your profits will suffer," says Mr. Slow-Poke, the cracker-barrel store
keeper. Tommy rot, man! We're going to get that much business and more away from Mr. Slow as for profits "A nimble sixpence," etc.
JUST A WORD ABOUT THIS WESTERN SILK STORE
.High up on the 5th floor, under a vault of daylight, in the new annex, every piece of silk that comes into this store is unwrapped and thoroughly inspected by a man who has lived
among silks -all his life. Down on the first floor, under splendid daylight, in the annex-silk store, where aristocratic silks have held convention for years, these fascinating fabrics are shown to
our public under a clear, quiet, east light. From beginning to end, our silks are a daylight business, and evening silks are scrutinised under artificial as well as natural light, to make sure that
naught off -shade or off-quality reaches the stocks. It is hard to tell what lies under the dye in a piece of silk. You can test the weight and texture in your hands but who's to tell whether the
dyeing was properly done? Whether a rough edge on the roller has cut or strained it anywhere? You see what a mighty lot of care must be exercised before we allow silks to pass this clearing
house. The finest silks still come from France, Switzerland and Italy, tho' America is stealing away a big chunk of the silk industry. But no other maker in the world has yet equaled the
BONNET SILKS, OF LYONS, FRANCE. These silks, world famous as the best since your grandma's time, go to make up a part of this unprecedented Silk Sale of ours. No woman, no matter
how fastidious, or in what part of the world she has bought silks, need ever go outside Portland or her best store to buy silks. For our buyers have brought the premier silks of the world to this
store and lay them at your feet in this sale. We call attention to points of particular merit in our Silk Store: Extreme care exercised in choosing our silks; the fact that we stand behind every
yard that we sell; the importation direct from abroad, from each country, of the silk that is its specialty, and the gathering from the silk centers of America such silks as are best made here. And
the fact that we sell all the old favorites that Portland women have been asking for and using for years, together with all the novelties, stamps this the Silk Store to lean on.
