Concerning Saturday Specials at Kilpatrick's
We Are Preparing To Invoice and List Our Entire Stook
AS IS OUR CUSTOM EACH YEAR ABOUT THIS TIME MUCH EASIER TO COUNT THE MONEY, AND
BESIDES THAT WE NEED THE ROOM, FOR SPRING GOODS ARE CROWDING US. SO MUCH FOR THE
CONDITIONS You have a right to expect, under these circumstances, RARE VALUES, AND YOU'RE GOING
TO GET THEM SATURDAY.
For instauce in the Children's Section More Coats

years. Reliable of course, well made and good styles.
Thoy sold up as high as $12.00, pick Saturday at $2.98.
And there are finer ones at $5.00 and $9.50; just
about y2 former prices.

if you are interested in any of these items you should
attend promptly SATURDAY MORNING.
.t Saturday sees tho end of our MARVELOUS SHOE
SALE. This was no odd lot of odd sizes or odd styles,
but spick and span selected stock, sized just as we would
buy them for our regular trade Because of this there
has been a uniform average sale of sizes, and as a con
sequence almost as good an assortment, as we near the
end, as there was in the beginning.
SATURDAY ENDS IT Originally about 1,900 pairs
in the lot there will not be many left when sale ends.
$2.95 'instead of $4.00-

Saturday the Last Day
Upon which we will make skirts to your measure at
$2.00 FOR THE MAKING, Unless you come in the
morning wo fear wo must refuse your orders. Our ex
pert who measures and fits had to turn some away a day,
or two ago.
The Big Silk Sale Ends Also Saturday Night
Never at this season have we sold so many Silks. Small
wonder when you get silks worth $1.00, $1.25 and $1.50
for 59c but there's an end to all things.
LET US TAKE YOU INTO OUR CONFIDENCE
A Few Days Ago Wt Announced a Sale of
Frenoh and Willow Plumes
This salo was advertised in the usual way, without any blare of trumpets or any sensational story. We sold
a good many, but not ONE-QUARTER of what should have been sold, and so we decided to advertise and try once more
In all earnestness let us impress you to look at and examine these values. More than one lady found the val
ues so wonderful and tho Plumes so ridiculously cheap that they simply could not resist buying, and some bought
three and four. Here are conservative statements covering the values. If you knew as,much about these goods as we do.
Not One Would be Left to Tell the Tale by Noon
FRENCH PLUMES VERY DESIRABLE
$1.98 for Plumes worth up to , $5.00
$2.98 for Plumes worth up to $7.50
$3.98 for Plumes worth up to , $10.00
$4.98 for Plumes worth up to $12.00
$5.98 for Plumes worth up to $15.00
Whether you buy or not we want you to
see these for we wish you to see for yourselves
tho differenco between the False and the true.
Willow Plumes Not so much in demand but still very good and priced lower, value for value, than ever
known in our belief. , ' '
$4.98 instead of $7.50
$9.98 instead of $15.00
$11.98 instead of $18.00
There is practically every color in both.
