plalnable reason were delayed several weeks In the delivery.
So a. visit to Bennett's Saturday will reveal many a plaasant
surprise for wo have gone through all of the stocks and thrown out
on tables and counters odds and ends and surpluses at prices which
will surely move them this last day before Christmas. Begin In the
basement and go through the entire store there are bargains you
