i A Rolling
The Barr Store has started the Christmas ball a rolling with a ver,
geance. Oure Is not the kind of store that waits until the very last
week before Christmas to get Its holiday stock. On the contrary, wo
have been ready for ten days past or more, and already a great many
people have heeded our suggestion to avoid the crush and. congestion
of later on by buying now.
We were never better prepared to fill all sorts of Christmas wishes
than we are this season. If you could see the cases full of choice silver
ware, of exquisite Cut Glass, or Rings and Brooches and Charms and
Fobs and all sorts of other Jewelry for personal wear, of watches and
watch chains and clocks, of opera glasses, of fountain pens, and many
fine things of the truest Christmas suitability, we are very sure you
would not go away empty handed.
And tla very easy for you to see them, at any time you wish.
