of unusual character
E are planning to exhibit at the
San Francisco Exposition plan
ning to go there with the largest
collection of rare pieces ever assembled
for a World's ; Fair. We were awarded the Grand
Prize at both' the Lewis & Clark and Alaska-Yukon
Expositions. We naturally desire to maintain the
prestige accruing from unquestioned Pacific Coast
leadership resulting therefrom, by securing similar re
sults at San .Francisco. To aid in such an achieve
ment we must make a sacrifice now.
It takes a lot of time and money to prepare for a
World's Exposition. For example, 'a -member of our
firm must leave soon for Constantinople and Persia
to assemble the exhibit; and he must have money, as
rug transactions in the Orient are on a cash basis only.
To make sure of getting this necessary cash and
getting it now we have taken two radical measures.
First, we have closed one' of our branches that
at Spokane and have shipped to Portland a stock
as large as that regularly maintained here.
Second, these rugs, together with our regular
stock, will for a short time go on
