PLATT51K0UTH SE ml-WEEKLY
MONDAY, JULY 20, 1i4.
Because of the inability of a great many peo
ple to take advantage of our China Sale Sat
urday, we have decided to continue it this
week. We have only a few pieces of our
Johnson English ware left, and to fill out we
have added some more very good bargains in
Glassware and white china. We will also
continue our sale on novelty dishes at 5 cents
each. You really cannot afford to miss this
if you desire REAL bargains.
