This Men's Store
Sixth-Street Annex First iFloor.
One of the hardest tasks we've
had to perform in the upbuilding
and bettering of our storekeeping
has been to get the growth of this
business balanced. Polks got the
notion that Olds, "Wortman &
King's was a woman's store and
so it is of course, a woman's store,
the best not only in Portland, but
in all the "West But 'tis just as
A MEN'S STORE.
The best in town. Men's goods,
chosen by men experts in men's
wear. Shown carefully and as men
like to be shown, by men. Polite,
obliffinsr fellows. In a store apart
from women's goods, right handy
to the 6th-street entrance. Manned
by men, for men, and women who
buy for men. In season and out
we've advertised for men's trade
for years told honest truths about
honest goods for all sorts of men.
For a time it seemed a hopeless
case hopeless as butting down the
end of our steel-frame building with
your head. But after a while we
won men's trade by the thou
sands. And now, when we adver
tise bargains like these for men,
they come for 'em or send. They'll
be here Monday in thongs, and all
week, or send their wives, sisters,
mothers, sweethearts. They'll all
be here bet a cookie come and
