THIS IS THE LEADING STORE ON
THE PACIFIC SLOPE
BECAUSE it's AHEAD of the times. "Up-to-date" methods are now behind the times; this is
an age of advanced methods in advance of the times; thus it is this store leads Portland to
a greater growth. Most stores are satisfied to wait for opportunities to come and coax 'em.
Xot us. We're out with a repeating rifle aud a pack of retrievers gunning for them. Our
New York buyers, alert and watchful ever, were in the field carl- and secured many of the plums
that Chicago stores of the finer class were compelled to forego on account of the business depression
consequent upon the great strike in that city. Chicago's cancellations have benefited Portland thro'
her best store. Mills and factories knowing our immense output have laid their canceled orders
at our feet at almost our own prices their season being over, ours in. the bud, with the Exposition
and its busy four and a half months ahead. Home-folks receive benefit first. Tfle " Cancellation
Sales" add fuel to the fires under the boiler of the "Home-folk's Pre-Exposition Sales." SPECIAL
