Record Breaking Attendance
And no wonder! for the values we now offer are
the most remarkable ever seen in this section of Ne
braska so early in the season.
This is not a sale of odds and ends or last
season's left-overs or resurrected "has-beens" from
years gone by. It would be easy enough to make
low prices on old stuff that no one wants. But these
suits are all new and desirable every one from a
good maker every one in a fashionable model of re
cent origin. Qualities and styles to suit every taste
and fancy and a complete assortment of sizes for
women of all proportions.
Every Suit was made
for Spring Business.
Ever reduction is genuine and the saving in
volved on every Suit is sufficiently large to warrant
you in making your purchases now, even though you
may not have intended to buy until a little later, The
savings are too great to be overlooked, and the
values are too great to last long. Here's the way
we're letting them go.
