Gift-Giving That Is
Furniture for Christrnas . gifts this
season has enjoyed larger sales than
ever. . The reason is that men and
women have come to understand the
economy of right gift buying. They
know that money placed in - furniture
is economy-wise policy, for in buying
a piece of furniture they are serving
two purposesexpressing true Christ
mas sentiment and adding to the com
fort of the home. Every hortie needs
, good furniture in: order to be comfort
able and cheery; every home in time"
will have it. So gifts of furniture at
Christmas mean just so much money
saved in the furnishing of the home.
When furniture is bought the Christ
mas gifts have come free, for the home
furnishings have been increased, and
the money paid can be charged against
' the home-furnishing account.! That is
just the way many economy-wise
Christmas buyers are figuring it this
winter. We are selling hundreds of
such people from our immense stock
of the choicest furniture articles at the
widest range of low - prices.
