It is here, in that district ten

open Salem's newest, and surely
one of its finest mercantile estab
lishments. The room la modern,
efficient, pleasing to the eye. It
has been built exclusively for
their use by W. H. Steusloff
Nothing In the way of arrange
ment of equipment which could
be used to make merchandising
better for customer or for mer
chant, has been omitted.
The eye Is first attracted to the
large plate glass showcases which
will reveal the newest goods in
attractively arranged designs. A
large center show ease about
which passersby may go to catch
a better glimpse of Inner windows
is a feature of the front display.

effort on the part of the clerk

tables for Inspection.
Hosiery Department Convenient
The same ease of access to the
merchandising is proTlded In the
hosiery department in the center
of the store and the ready-to-wear
department In the rear of
the room. Four convenient fit
ting rooms and ample mirror
space make possible the custom

Kafoury Bros, have divided
the large balcony into a mlllinerv
