economy to spend money and extravagance to save it. Considerthequality,
it’s only when you do that, that the true significance of this wonderful sale
is realized. Read every offering carefully for there is mighty interesting
saving news for you: but at the same time bear it in mind, that the first
buyers get the choicest selections, b^ opa of them.
Frankly the only
profit we expect from this sale is the advertising such »bargains will giv
us, we are not selling out— merely outselling.
