'WAR SALE OF SQRQSIS SHOES
The acute situation in Europe has
caused the cancellation of sailings of
most of our Trans-Atlantic steamers and
has left Beveral large shipments of So
'rosis Shoos for Paris, Berlin
.and Vienna and St. Peters
, . burg on tho wharves ; also,
many orders for other for
eign ports were finished and
ready to ship, and others in
the process of manufacture.
SORQSIS SHOES have been f or many years t10
international shoe and thousands of pairs are shipped
, abroad every month.
For tho reason the outlook is so serious and, because shipments will be indefinitely
delayed, and also because theso export shoes are seasonable goods, it has been. decided
to offer them for sale in this country. ' . ;
. .We have been very fortunate in securing a large lot of these Sorosis Shoes and the
co-operation of tho manufacturers, who say, "Mark the prices low for quick clearance."
Yon can always find nameless shoes of unknown origin atall sorts of so-called reduc
tions, but a clearance sale of Sorosis Shoes, standard in both quality and price, is an en
tirely different proposition. ' ...
