PEEPING, forth in
our large store, are
the first signs of spring.
The very flowers of the
furniture world are blos
soming. Here is a rose
colored mahogany table,
graceful in outline, exact
in detail and staunch in
character. Could any
flower be more beautiful?
One scents a breath of
meadows and sees a
wooded glen, where flows
a cool, rippling stream
that travels continually
onward, spreading fortli
into greater expanse and
skirting rich, waving fields wherein cluster
bounteous supplies. .Here is a nook of trim,
dainty French furniture. The very breath of
spring is in it. It is a reminiscence of the
Revolution. One's thoughts go back to 1789.
It is early spring along the rue de la Paix and
Paris has fluttered out with avernal dress.
Louis XVI has just dismissed Necker; Lafay
ette is declaring that the tricolor cockade will
tour the world; the king, queen and dauphin
are marching into Paris from Versailles, forced
back by the rising revolutionists. Such furni
turefurniture that recalls those historic days
is good to live with. It is an incarnation of
spring and pulsates with that cool, refreshing
harmony which makes home a delightful place.
Our tag-policy prices disarm competition. They
' are so moderate, indeed, that they may be called
the Revolution of 1911 a break from the cus
tom "of charging exorbitant prices for the best
quality of goods.
