We Have Decided to Close Ont This Season's Snrplus Wholesale Stock oi Rons
The wholesale trade for this season is nearly over, and we find we still have thousands of rugs in our wholesale stock
that must be ?old by the end of the season. Every pattern is this season's production, no old stock or job lots. Every rug
is perfectly matched and properly made.
It is the policy of this store to dispose, as nearly as possible, of all goods purchased for one season, at its close.
Being large wholesale dealers we are required to purchase immense quantities of all the staple and desirable makes of
rugs to obtain the lowest possible prices and meet the demands of our trade.
Any surplus stock we may have left over we always dispose of at this season of the year at much less price than the
strictly retail dealer can purchase the same goods at the mills.
Tomorrow will be a day of great rejoicing. The day when the prudent buyer can more than realize their expectations.
Glance at a few of the values we herewith quote: Many other sizes, not pricedoffered at similar reductions.

aa already large theological school. In

wet, wet Holland. Holland on a rainy 4ay,
dawned on my eye through the gray Dutch
mists. And now I understand a trifle bet
ter the gray atmosphere of the Dutch
school of old painters. It comes right from
Holland and not only from the Imagina
tion of those homely artists of homely,
staid, and sensible Holland, as the bright
lights of Swedish paintings finds its ex
planation In the prismatic clearness of
8wedish atmosphere, and not from some
mere artistic fancy. The canals smelt un
commonly wet that day I was in The
Hague. How can WUhelmlna escape rheu
matism in her misty Dutch Venice? But
there is no mist In the Dutch business
man's head. A nation that refuses to have
a national debt, also refuses to work for
nothing. Tou pay your way along In Hol
land. Those shrewd looking, unsenti
mental, stubborn and good natured (they
are both) Dutch can get your pennies,
count on It. Holland does not seem to lie
in alt the industrial agonies of other Eu
ropean nations. They know how to thrive,
that rich and prosperous little people. My
time in The Hague was to brief, but the
museum I had to see. Certainly an econ
omical establishment for great art treas
ures. That the Dutch can endure such a
building for their master-works of art. I
cannot understand, except on the ground
of Dutch conservatism and Dutch fru
gality. The palace, too, la an unpreten
tious affair in a rather shut-in location.
Holland doea not pride Itself on Parisian
show, but on its native common-sense,
thrift and ability to take care of Itself.
How Germany would like to make that
little kingdom a province of its own
mighty, burdened land. There will be
some rich Dutch blood split before that
takes place. Tou And a peculiar qualnt

to the small town metropolis. I expected
to find, though, mora striking examples of
old Dutch architecture. Alas, the prosy

tures away. Tou must go to towns and
vlllagea now for these. Order, cleanliness
and system mark The Hague as it doea
