May 1st, Closes Saturday. May
. Beginning Saturday we will hold the largest special sale of Rugs ever held in North Platte.
We have made a special purchase of standard quality Rugs of one of the largest New York car
pet houses at prices that are considerably below the market. We are going to offer these
Rugs at prices that will save you money over any price you have ever had. These Rugs are
from one of the best known mills in this countr and are not seconds or imperfect goods, but
every rug is of the highest quality in its grade and perfect in workmanship and color.
Prices do not tell you much without seeing the quality. We have not tried to buy the cheap grades,
but the standard medium priced rugs that give you good satisfactory service. In this lot will be three
grades of velvets, five grades of Axminsters, two grades of Wiltons and several of Brussels; all in room
sizes 7 ft 6 in x 9 ft, 8ft 3 in x 10 ft 6 in and 9 ftx 12. We will also have a large assortment of small
rugs 27x54 inches. We are not quoting prices in this advertistment for the reason that you will have to
see the goods themselves to know what the saving will be, but we wish to say that it will pay you to buy
your rugs at this sale. -
We will have these goods on display in our windows this week and they go on sale Satur
day. Be sure and come.
