A Useful Gift is a Compliment tp lowr?
Intelligence"'Whether You I
Give or Receive it I
IN**' Read the head lines again?"A Uuseful gift is a compliment to your intelli- j
" Kence?whether you give or receive it." Keep that in mind when you set out
I on your "tour of inspection" next week and you will, "naturally" include the I
"Busy Stor?" in your list of stores to be visited.
1^^* ^ nrW? This store is a "family" store, particularly at Christmas-time, for here every
i member of the family may quickly and satisfactorily secure useful gifts for every ?
other member of the famity, and when in doubt as to what to give?
The gift of a half-dozen handkerchiefs strikes a good many people?giver and recipient?as just , about
right, for relative or friend; man, woman or child. And each year we sell more handkerchiefs than the year
before, which is conclusive evidence that this store is the place to get your Xmas handkerchiefs.
For Man or Women?How About Kid Gloves? Just Rright!
We have the best that can be bought to retail at $1.00 for women, $1.00 to $1.50 tor men.
The Gift of a Pair of Shoes or Slippers are Most Acceptable, so if your mind
should run in this particular line we can supply you. A gift for the dining rooom is usually very acceptable,
so if you do not know just what to give?get something for the table; a linen table cloth, a set napkins, a set
knives and falks, a set silver tea spoons, a set silver knives or falks, a silver gravy ladle or berry spoon will
make a nice present.
We have done our best to get Christmas goods of the most worthy character, realizing the conditions of things at this time,
we suggest the giving of useful gifts. And too, we have not been forgetful of the children, we have made ample preparation for them.
So you see we have for months planned, to bring together articles that we know will be thoroughly appreciated by those who
select them, and doubley so by the recepieot.
The whole store fairly breathes of Christinas?every nook and corner ia full of suggentiona, that will be of valuable assistance
to you in deciding just what to give.
In this limited space we can not hope to cover the numerous lines here for your viewing but we invite you to come and give
yourself the satisfaction of a personal inspection.
