friends with good wishes and great bargains. We
are ready to add quality of goods to our pleasant

Ours is an Interesting
Mid-Winter Days !
Yet it's hardly to be wondered at when one considers ,
the low prices, the splendid January values. It's our
way to send the January sales along to make it a .;
busy month, and then ''It's house cleaning' time," as
well; just before we take our invoice the season
when we right the stocks when surplus lines are
quickly cleared. All these combine to make the
month's selling one of unusual interest to fill each
day full of plumpest values.

years was supposed to bo incurable.
For a grout many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease, and pre

has proven catarrh to bo a constitu

It is taken internally in doses from to
