"NEW ADMINISTRATION SALE" OF SHOES
A Shoe Sale of Tremendous Importance to Every Individual in Portland
Our Shoe Department Changes Management
All present stocks to be slaughtered regardless
of whether they've been in the store a week only,
or a year. New Spring styles suffer equallj with
the makes of the past season and there's little
change in shoe styles, anyhow, for a year back.
But we've changed managers in the Shoelore.
MR. S. C. JAMESON
Late of Boston and Providence
Has been engaged and took charge last week of
our big new Shoe Department. For oven 20 years
the name of "Jameson" has been associated
throughout all the East with the egression of
"ONLY GOOD SHOES."
Mr. Jameson owned and managed the largest and. leading shoe stores in Boston,
Mass., and Providence, R. I., for years. His Boston store was not only the largest in
that city, but the handsomest, finest fitted and most elaborately appointed of an- in
America. Mr. Jameson is a designer and practical originator of the latest ideas now
embodied in the finest makes of shoes in this country. Having disposed of his East
ern interests we persuaded Mr. Jameson to take control of this great branch of our
"AT YOER SERVICE."
S. C. JAMESON.
phenomenally growing business. "The best is none too good," is ever our motto, and
in' presenting Mr. Jameson to our public, we can truly say, He is the best all 'round
shoe man today in the United States, and safely challenge contradiction., Hundreds of
Easterners will welcome Mr. Jameson to Portland as an old and valued acquaintance.
The condition of assuming charge of our shoe business was that he should have AB
SOLUTE control. His first order is, "Sell every dollar's worth of present stocks."
We'll let him tell the rest in his own way., "
WHAT MR. JAMESON SAYS:
"While the present stocks of footwear in the store are well chosen and in splendid
shape so far as makes, styles and sizes are concerned, naturally I do .not care to con
tinue many lines of another buyer's choosing. The shoe stocks here are (by my own
personal investigation) the peer of any in the City of Portland and yet I can better
them. My policy will be to start all over new in my way, with stocks chosen by
myself. In no other way will I assume the responsibility of making the improvements
in hand. Therefore I propose to slaughter the present stocks regardless of whether
they've been here a day, a month or a year. Spring business must be done with shoe
lines picked by " Yours truly,
Therefore thousands of pairs of shoes fo men, women, misses and children will be
sold this week at less than manufacturers' cost! In many cases at less than half!

That's what Paris calls these first glimpses of fashions al
ready "out" for Spring. Women's Tailored 'Suits almost cere
monious in beautiful cloths and effects. A word of this store's
tailor-made suits and wraps for women.
Some women, who do not observe very closely, wonder why
it is that our tailored garments hold their shape so much
longer than the usual sort do not fall into unsightly folds and
wrinkles as soon as the first freshness wears off. It is because
we do not use trimmings to cover defects. Seams are carefully
finished; tailor-stitching gives firmness where needed: every
hidden part is looked after with the utmost care, even in the
low-priced garments. Nothing Is skimped or slighted.
Our wraps are out of the ordinary. They "have an air of re
finement and excluslveness that suggests Paris at its best. The
lines are easy and graceful; the materials and trimmings are as
rich as one could desire, but are used with a degree of restraint
that Insures harmony and artistic effect.
