".cheaper" than a. "cheap" shoe; nothing more annoying than an ill-fitting
shoe, and few things arc less economical, than a " bargain ' shoe. None of
these in this department not an- old or undesirable shape, nor a questionable
quality. Shoes of equal grade cannot be made to sell at less than our regu
lar prices; and on some of our famous "specials,' thero is a clear saving of

time to fit shoes properly and we want to provide plenty of it for the proper 'serving of every
one of our rapidly growing army of patrons, today.

bodice girdles are all new features that yon will like.
The whole effect of the salons is Spring-like. Given over to
the first hint of blossoming and full-blown fashions. Don't trust

fabrics, light weight imported canvas cloths, homespuns, fancy
wool etamines and imported fancy mixed coverts. Serges are

in size from the tiny check to the more pronounced, almost plaidis"h
