out obtaining some of our REAL BARGAINS, and for the benefit of those
who we were unable to attend and consequently had to be turned away dis
appointed, we will repeat the sale next Saturday.

emphasize quality in every department of our store, we also protect your in
terests in the matter of price. Trading at our store will prove a real economy
