THIS is the new plan in furnishings: one haDdsom
piece ot the kind you really want at the time jou can
afford it . :
The true home is never ready-made. . It grow at its
own deliberate pace. That is one reason why a piece at a
time is such a natural and successful plan. There is no
expediency about furniture bought in this way. It really
expresses your own personal taste, and the result is
harmony and individual charm. 1
You will find in our showrooms many a beautiful piece
to set off your present furnishings or make the nucleus of
a ciiarnaing room. Real craftsmanship goes into the making
of our fine furniture, yet our prices are invariably moderate. -Why
not begin at once? Let us show you our selec--tkm
in all its variety and beauty. I j .
