WE CALL YOUR SPECIAL ATTENTION TO OUR
COATS and DRESSES
Instead of waiting till after Christmas, as is our usual custom, to inaug
urate our "END OF THE YEAR CLEARANCE SALE" we have been
busy the past two days marking down every dress and coat in stock.
Every garment in this sale retains its original price ticket showing you
clearly the marked reductions and the unusual savings. We are not
advertising price comparisons as they mean nothing unless backed up by
genuine quality and worth in garments that you must see to know wheth
er thev are the bargains we claim they are.
Not a great many of them left but the styles, colors and sizes are excel
lent in every way. We are determined to dispose of them quickly and
have marked them so attractively low that if you need a coat you will be
sure to find what you want at the price you wish to pay. Just compare
these coats with others you may have seen, and if the values are not a
great deal better than expected, don't buy. We've marked them so low
that they are going to be sold at once, so' be here early to choose. As
low as $6.95 up to $39.75
Here are shown the fashionable styles in popular fabrics, wool or silk,
in a complete range of the good colors in sizes 16 to 50. Not a one has
been reserved and price concessions are so liberal that you will be temp
ted to buy more than one. Remember that our cash prices are always
low, now you buy at still lower prices because we must clean the racks of
all Fall and Winter garments. Here are some of the prices:
$595 $9 75 $11-95 $13 95
$19 75 and $2175
