Seven More Days of the 27th Grand Annua! Clearance Sales! Absolutely Every Article In the House Unsparingly Reduced Goods upon which manufacturers control price alone excepted.
COUNTING R MILE A DAY, TODAY MARKS THE SEVENTH MILESTONE FROM THE GOAL THAT
Marks the End of 1 905's Great Clearance Sales !
January, with all its drawbacks, brings one blessing to the People. It is the season of Clearance Sales and their attendant lowest prices of all the year on general merchandise. As absolute leaders in the making of lowest prices on dependable goods, it is
a conceded fact among all fair and honest minds THIS STOEE STANDS IN A NICHE BY ITSELF.
This is a modern store of performance not promises alone. A store that DOES THINGS and in which people believe. Don't boy in any store merely because a "sale" is announced. That term, like the good word "bargain," is being misused. A
"bargain" is a wanted thing at a less than usual price a "sale" at the 0. W. & K. store means a large collection of "bargains," and is never used-to beguile the public into buying full-price goods. Great economy is-possiblo in this sal e all over .the "Big
Store" in every section. Again we remind you, good folk, that but seven days remain of the great Annual Sale today, and next week. And today's day AT THIS ST ORE has but ten hours. For -
THIS STORE DOES NOT KEEP OPEN NIGHTS AFTER 6 P. M. No, not even Saturday; for it has passed the provincial era in storekeeeping, arid stands 'alone among Portland stores for the rights of employes to a ten-hour day a monument to
progressive MODERN MERCHANDISING. You can aid the movement for shorter hours for faithful store helpers by doing shopping today WHEREVER you choose, but BEFORE 6 P. H.
"We offer a programme of popular selections for the pleasing of our public we trust may touch a popular chord, but not all thft bargains are printed. Come to the store and enjoy the full card BEFORE 6 P.M.
